oh brother..................


If you value your Corolla, don't drive it on the beach. The sand will get up in the brakes, calipers, suspension, steering rack, and the salt..well we all know what sea salt or road salt will do to the undercarriage and chassis. I shudder at the thought of an '09 Corolla being mistreated that way... and that is what you will be doing. It's a road car, not a dune buggy. But if you must, be sure to pressure-wash everything when you get home. Then you will have issues manifest later, regardless, with the sand and salt. I grant you the Corolla is not a Mercedes a BMW or a friggin' Bentley but would you take a Rolls-Royce on the beach? OK, if you are rich and can afford the problems that will appear in a year or 3, cool .Meantime...have a great time and enjoy! Really!

Don't drive your Corolla on the beach! A shark may think it is a surfer or a seal and eat it.
