You bought a former rental Taurus from a buy-here pay-here lot?

Close. An almost 9-year-old hatchback Corolla with a tow hitch (not just a receiver for a bike rack) on cheap tires.

Amy's receiver may be worn out by this point in time.

Close. This is Amy Jr. My next car Amy Sr. Will probably have mysterious stains and a rusty tailpipe

Yes, with a questionable title no less.
