When I open the rear door on the passenger side, the interior light does not come on, is it normal? It has been like this since day one I purchased the car 5 years ago.

I hope you checked the history of the car, especially the engine was not rebuild since the mileage is so low. For 12 years old car and the mileage is only 35K.
I am so happy for you, enjoy the ride.
