Also it was a Toyota, so I just got in it and turned the key for the next couple of years.
Well, that's one way to keep the miles off of it.

Actually, I know a couple people who killed Toyotas because they DID take that a bit too literally and turning the key was all they did! Well, that and driving it and putting gas in it. Little details like changing the oil or at least checking the oil level, replacing filters as necessary, etc, got overlooked.
One of 'em was a mid-90's Corolla that blew up around 30,000 miles when it ran out of oil. The other was an early 90's Tercel that actually tolerated that abuse for about 60,000 before seizing up.
