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.

Two new RWD Toyota sports cars to join FR-S?

Fri, 09 Aug 2013 14:14:00 EST

Toyota as we know it could become a thing of the past. According to Australian site Car Advice, the Japanese brand known for bland cruisers like the Camry and Corolla is preparing to bring two new rear-drive cars to market that would slot above and below the Scion-badged FR-S. This is very, very good news.
Car Advice spoke to the GT86/FR-S' chief engineer, Tatsuya Tada, who claimed, "Akio Toyoda always says to me, Toyota sports car [family] should be three sports car brothers. 86 is in the middle." The oldest "brother" would be the spiritual successor to the Supra, even if it doesn't wear that name. Tada is in charge of that project, while a sub-GT86 project is being headed-up elsewhere.
Tada refused to comment on names (CA specifically mentions MR2 and Celica) for the new small car, but did say that, "Yes it is rear-wheel drive and that's Toyota's strong position - Toyota sports car must be rear-wheel drive." Perhaps the juiciest bit of information obtained from Tada's interview with Car Advice was his hinting that both new sports cars would be joint ventures, like the GT86/FR-S/Subaru BRZ triplets. Tada wouldn't say who Toyota was in bed with on the smaller model, but did mention that the Supra would be a product of the world's largest automaker's partnership with BMW.

Toyota FT-86 Open Concept leaves us feeling flushed

Wed, 20 Nov 2013 16:39:00 EST

When last we checked in on our topless would-be hero, the Toyota FT-86 convertible had been reportedly placed on "indefinite hold." That was back in early October, not long after Toyota had trotted out the rear-wheel-drive canvasback to Scion dealers as a possible future product carrot if they decided not to turn in their franchises. And yet, we're here at the Tokyo Motor Show, where Toyota has taken the time to at least repaint the FT-86 Open Concept in "Flash Red," if not build a whole other car (the original Geneva showcar was white). It's enough to make our heads spin like a teenager on the verge of a breakup. Will they? Won't they?
At this point, we still don't know any more than you do - the last word we heard out of Toyota was not encouraging, although the story was that the program could still be fast-tracked if management had a change of heart. As the car has never been seen before in Japan, perhaps Toyota is merely extending its domestic audience a courtesy view before it lines this showcar in mothballs, or maybe they're still trying to make a decision on its fate and gauging public reaction on the homefront.
Interestingly, in a new story published today, Automotive News quotes Subaru brand boss Yasuyuki Yoshinaga downplaying the likelihood of a production model, saying flatly "We make the car, so if we don't make it, it can't happen." The executive went on to note, "Our engineering department told me that losing the entire roof requires a complete redesign of the structure. It would need a big change." Given that such a car would probably trade in rather small volumes, that sounds like a significant hurtle.

Dubai claims debut of Toyota GT86 sedan concept

Sun, 03 Nov 2013 11:07:00 EST

Typically, when the organizers of an auto show reveal that a new car will debut at their show, we take notice. But this particular claim from the Dubai International Motor Show ought to be taken with a grain of salt.
As our compatriots at AutoGuide discovered, the Facebook page for the Emirates auto expo includes a post with an interesting claim: that a sedan based on the Toyota GT86 (known in the US as the Scion FR-S) will debut at the show. The Facebook post is accompanied by the image above, purporting to show the concept in question.
The strange part is that the organizers claim the four-door GT86 concept will make its "regional unveil" at the Dubai show, which would seem to indicate that the concept in question would make its international debut at an earlier show. Considering that the doors open in Dubai on Tuesday, that seems increasingly unlikely. All of this begs the question, If this isn't actually a four-door GT86, what might it be?
