Up for bid is my 1998 Toyota 4Runner.  I bought it used in 2000 from CarMax in Georgia.  At that time it had 60,000 miles on it and I believe it was a 1 owner.  I have since used this as a daily driver and it now has 272,636 miles (at time of auction) on it.  This vehicle has been an awesome workhorse, and it still has lots of life left in it.  I am selling it because I recently bought a new car.  This is the third 4Runner I have owned, and if you know 4Runners and Toyotas in general, then you know how long they last!!!

This has been a non-smoker car, and it is very clean.  I have had no major accidents in this vehicle, only a few small fender benders with nothing damaged or replaced.  There is no rust. I have complete records since my ownership, and I have regularly changed the oil myself. When I first bought the vehicle I used synthetic oil, but then I changed over to regular oil.  It has an excellent set of Michelin's with lots of tread life left on it.  All power options work great which includes, mirrors, locks, windows, sunroof, cruise, tape player/radio,etc.  It has a keyless entry/alarm system with 2 remotes and 2 keys.  I have all owner's manuals. The brakes, transmission and engine all work great too.  The interior is very clean as I am a neat freak!!  Title is free and clear.  

Since this is a 1998, it will have some minor problems.  One of the issues which seems to be a Toyota thing is that the paint seems to fade after time.  This has happened on the hood and roof.  It could easily be painted for pretty cheap.  There are also some scratches on the left side door.   Back in 2009, I was told that the valve cover gasket should be replaced, yet here it is 2013 and it still runs fine.  There is some oil seepage from the engine, but as long as you check it regularly and don't mind a little burnt oil smell from time to time, you will be perfectly fine.  I think it might need an alignment, because when you hit 55-60 MPH, it shakes while driving.  It hasn't bothered me, but it is something that will need to be looked at soon.  Since it is over 15 years old, it is going to have normal wear and tear, so expect some cracks in the leather or plastic, dirt on the upholstery and even some broken plastic throughout.  1 wheel cover is missing.  Other than these minor issues, this 4Runner works and looks great!!

I also forgot that the power antenna is broken, however the motor still works.  I replaced one before and it's pretty easy and only costs about $10 for an aftermarket replacement from Ebay.

Toyota produces millionth truck in Texas

Thu, 19 Sep 2013 16:01:00 EST

After going online in 2006, Toyota's San Antonio, Texas truck plant has just built its one-millionth vehicle, the 2014 Tundra 1794 Edition you see above. The plant originally focused on just the Tundra pickup, but the smaller Tacoma started rolling off the line there in 2010, as well.
Fittingly, the 1794 Edition (a new premium trim level for 2014) pays homage to the property on which the Toyota plant now resides - a ranch that was founded in 1794. Scroll down for the official press release for the plant's milestone, and be sure to check out the full gallery of Tundra 1794 Edition images as well.

Toyota recalling 342k Tacomas due to faulty seatbelt pretensioners

Wed, 07 Aug 2013 15:33:00 EST

Toyota is voluntarily recalling 342,000 Tacoma Access Cab pickups, produced between 2004 and 2011. The wide-ranging recall is due to faults in the screws that attach the belt pre-tensioner to the belt retractor. There are concerns that the screws can loosen themselves over time, especially if the access door is opened and closed with too much force. It's important to note that the recall only covers the driver and front passenger seat, and is limited to just the Access Cab trucks. Other body styles aren't affected.
If the screws come loose, the pre-tensioner and retractor spring could separate from the belt entirely, which would be bad news in a crash. There's no mention of injuries or accidents due to the faulty pre-tensioners. Owners affected by the recall will be notified soon, and asked to come in for recall service.

Toyota temporarily idles pair of Indian plants due to labor unrest

Thu, 20 Mar 2014 18:03:00 EST

The Detroit News reported today that Toyota will restart production at two Indian plants, following a shutdown on Monday.
Factory labor, management and police in Asia engage in the kind of violent altercations that we're not used to, having almost entirely walked away from the overtly brutal relations epitomized by the Pinkerton Detective Agency and the Flint Sit-Down Strike. In India, a plant owned by a Ford transmission supplier plant was shut down in 2009 after incidents between workers and armed men around the same time as Ssangyong workers occupied a factory in South Korea, in 2012 Suzuki Maruti workers rioted over wages around the same time upset employees beat a ceramics factory president to death in retaliation for a labor leader's killing.
Toyota is the latest to company trying to avoid that road. The Detroit Free Press reported earlier this week that it shut down two plants in India after 11 months of acrimonious wage negotiations and arbitration have gone nowhere. Toyota said the plant workers in Bidadi, near Bangalore, had deliberately stopped production at times over the past 45 days and threatened management. The workers said they wanted their wages raised by an amount already agreed to by management, but that management had reneged; news reports weren't clear on the amount, some saying nearly 10,000 rupees ($165 US) more per month, another saying 4,000 rupees ($65 US), but reports agree that Toyota has said it will only go as high as 3,050 rupees ($50 US).
