To be honest I have never paid any attention to where the axles were rebuilt. Something I have never seemed to worry about especially when it's something you need in a pinch on a Sunday and pretty much everything else around is closed. Everything is made in china now. Even the Japanese companies are outsourcing the once Made in Japan products. It's China, Taiwan, or Malaysia for almost everything unless you are buying higher end products which are still made there.

Does this technique apply to the door locks too? the passenger side door wont unlock with the use of the key?

I have corolla 09 on lease. If I opt for private car servicing from Mr Lube or something...instead of getting it done from Toyota service centre, then does it effect the warranty of my car in any sense ?

No you don't have to take the car to Toyota to keep your warranty. You can go anywhere or even do it yourself. Just keep your receipts from wherever you go or from where you purchased the parts if you decide to do the service yourself. Note it in the owners manual as well (there is a section for logging your services).

Thanks for the clarrification man....
Can you suggest some good places apart from Mr Lube. Also is it only oil change after 8000Km for 1st service or anything else is also to be taken care of ?
My car is not giving any problems as such...
#3382 of 3858 Oil Change Frequency

What is the recommended oil change frequency for a 2010 corolla?
Aug 05, 2009 (1:07 pm)
On all my cars I try to change the oil at 3k miles. Some will say it's overkill some will agree. Either way I wouldn't go over 5k on regular or dino oils. Don't use fram filters and you should be good. I'd highly recommend 3 months 3k mile oil changes on Toyota's though as they have a history of oil sludge problems and frequent oil changes are a sure fire way to help prevent them.

It's in your manual as well as the other maintenance issues you should be paying attention to.

7500 miles is what Toyota says on Synth oil ( Mobil 1 ) as far as sludge there has been no issues for years.
