General Information

LE with gold emblems
I am the current owner. I drive the car 400-500 miles per week, so it has been made more comfortable, convenient with a tighter suspension. Convenience items such as a Viper remote starter with auto door locks and a Sony stereo that allows for hands-free cell phone calling have been installed. The suspension was upgraded with Bilstein struts all around and front-end components made by ProForged.

The history is detailed and is as follows...

I bought this Corolla LE in 2012 with 98k from a body shop in Whitman, MA (see WR Auto Body pic).

The History shows in 1998 it was built in Canada (see factory pic) and was immediately sold to Lia Toyota in Schenectady, NY where it was most likely a lease vehicle for its 1st 3 years of life.

After the lease was up, it was sold to Mcgees Cars of Hanover, MA on 8/6/2001 with approx. 28K.

On 8/24/2001, Mcgees sold it to James & Maryanne Pendergast-Lord of Weymouth, MA. The car had 28,606 miles on the odometer.

The Lords owned it for just 12 days shy of 10 years, and on 8/12/2011, sold it (probably traded it in) to Allied Auto of Pembroke, MA where somehow it got into the hands of WR Auto Body (where I bought it from) in Whitman, MA.

On 9/15/2012, following an ad on Craig's List, I purchased this car from WR Auto Body of Whitman I paid $3150 plus my damaged 1996 Nissan Sentra. The odometer had 97,950 miles on it.
