In my way of looking at things any car is 4 (or is it almost 5) years old, and has done 85,000 km is likely to start costing you for maintenance after another 25,000km and /or two years. So you keep this in mind. The fact that the car is unmarked only indicates meticulous (and lucky) ownership. But father time is the friend of nobody.

I second Sgiitk & B.S., One should not buy a car which is driven more than 50k & it will give load of maintainance. So overall cost of ownership will be same. Try  to get the car which has run lesser kms. All the best.

In my opinion - the corolla has built quality that's a notch above other manufacturers. The car you're looking at does have substantial mileage on it - but if its well maintained - it will easily go another 50-60K km without problems.

Take a look at the service history of the car if available. Things like the mileage when the clutch was overhauled are a good indicator of how the car's been driven.
