Zerex Asian, because it's cheaper than Toyota Red. YMMV

Don't know if it's the best but I'd use the Auto Zone Universal 50/50.

Im currently running super tech universal 50/50 long life
Toyota asks for a long life non silicate non nitrite non amine
And non borate ethylene glycol based coolant
I think super tech universal long life works out great for this application

For 7.50 a gallon its a deal
No issues at all...had it in about 10k miles so far

Where did you get the info about no silicates and such?

Prestone with cor-guard has phosphates in it now, and does not have silicates. If I needed to save money, I would buy a jug of the concentrate.

Valvoline Zerex pink is a phosphated organic acid with no silicates, so that should work too.

Those results above were just posted yesterday.

Forgot about Pentosin Pentofrost A1 red. It's available at NAPA. $25 on sale now for a jug of concentrate.

If its the pink Toyota mix, the 55/45 premix was 17-18$ a gallon up here, guessing cheaper down south. Zerex is a good option.

When I had my 2000 Chevy Prizm (exact same as corolla), I used super tech coolant and distilled water (40/60) w zero issues. I drove that thing 2-3k miles a month. Sold it to a kid that works for my buddy. The kid still drives that thing to construction sites for work
