Hi normkol and welcome to the Corolla Forum! :thumbup::clap::thumbup1:arty::balloon:
Driving in New York City, you might do well to install a heavy duty brush guard/battering ram mounted on the front! You could always just get one of these and you'll be safe all the time! :tank: :blink::thumbup1:
I put my new borla exhaust on. I'll put a sound clip on here as soon as I figure out how, it's actually for a 13 model but according to toyota parts the 13and14 have the same part number for the axel back part. It had to be modified just a little, the flange was out of line and the tip is too long so I ordered a shorter one today, but it sounds real good. The rest of the exhaust system has been changed. It looks like the resonator has changed and the front pipe to the manifold too.
Bought Heavy Duty thick rubber truck floor mats for the '15 like the ones I have in the '09.
For the life of me with all the problems Toyota has had with their floor mats I don't know why they don't put heavier duty floor mats in their vehicles! Those cheap plastic floorboard locking devices sure don't look like they'll last too long either! Didn't last in the '09!
It's sad that in the Maintenance Schedule it has to even say check floor mats even before change oil and rotate tires.
I dropped mine off at the dealership where I bought almost three years ago to have a couple of recalls taken care of. It hasn't been back there since I bought it, the Service Writer said they missed it :laughing:
My car is an LE. When I bought the car it didn't come with a remote (someone lost it), but I did see that it was standard equipment on my car so I bought a new remote from Toyota and programmed it myself.
This is the page I used to see what options my car has: http://www.cars.com/toyota/corolla/2005/standard-equipment
Glanced outside and looked at it. It is a Super White so it just looks like a giant pile of snow.
Drove it 50 miles home Friday night, parked it and then it proceeded to snow 12 inches by Saturday afternoon. It was so bad I had to take the 4X4 to town Sat night. Did not go anywhere yesterday or today.
Sucks buying a new car and then not being able to drive it.
Try this, it happened to me just by accident, there is a stretch of back road near me thats up hill for about a mile. Its just about a 20 degree incline, I can start up that hill get the car to about 50 or so in 4th gear and turn on the ac ( just to put a load on the engine) at about 2800rpm that TRD exhaust just purrrrs like a kitten.
