Friend Trying to buy A 03' Corolla, base model, 6,500 usd. silver auto no pwr windows or doors. auto, cd stereo, cold a/c HOWEVER, the trunk Latch wont open the Trunk Nor The Key, Is this common? Of Course my friend will have a Mechanic Do A Visual On the Lift. And Perhaps A Carfax. It was originally 6,900.. worked down to 6500 cash...Your Thoughts? Any similar experiences?

It's possible the cylinder is corroded up...

Try freeing up with PB Blaster, then IF it works...lube it with silicone paste, Mobil 1 oil or SuperLube...

Be careful NOT to force the key...which is either made of brass or aluminum...

On a Toyota, the new cylinder will come with new keys...which means another key. A good locksmith should be able to repin it to the original key...
