Just ran into the 299,999 speedometer defect. Local Toyota dealership said to use the trip meter A or trip meter B to record mileage over 299,999. Bad thing is, I kept trying to reset the speedometer ever so often when it got stuck at 299,999. So, those are lost miles.
Thank you Toyota - this is how they reward a loyal customer who brought their car for regular maintenance. Makes me wonder how much money went to local dealer all these years. The bad thing - we have 2 Corollas: my 2003 CE and my daughters 2006 S. We have 3 Toyotas in our garage. The last being a 2013 Venza. So to replace 2 defective speedometers will be over $1000.00 dollars out of pocket. So, yes, we will use the trip meter A and trip meter B option. If we ever sell either corolla, we would have to disclose the issue on pink slip.
