DESCRIPTION (CAR, YEAR, OTHER): 1992 Toyota Corolla DX 5 Speed, White With Blue Interior, AM/FM Cassette, 48-state emissions (no EGR), AC that still blows cold.
This car has been in my family since new. I have all the service receipts since the car was new. The title has been in my name since August 2006. The title is clear and the car is titled in Pennsylvania.
I have changed the oil and filter every 3000 miles.
In Pennsylvania, there is no more emmissions testing on this car since it is over 25 years old. There is still a very strict safety inspection and the car always passed, so there are no structural defects in the car.
The left rear was damaged by another vehicle in Dec 2002. The left rear quarter panel was repaired, and the trunk and left tail lamp were replaced. The rusty spot on the left rear, above the tail lamp, is likely from poor prep prior to painting the repair. The trunk does not leak.
When I was commuting 16 miles to work (mostly 35 mph roads), I averaged about 32 mpg. I am now retired and do very little driving and the average is about 23 mpg.
All 4 tires are Kumho Solus 175/70/13.
As of Nov 2018, the tread depths were: LF and RF (8), LR and RR (6).
As of Nov 2018, the brake pad/shoe thicknesses were: LF and RF (9), LR and RR (4).
The original horn was replaced with dual-note GM car horns to make the little car sound like a big car.
