For sale by owner:

2003 Toyota Celica GT-S, 139xxx miles

6-speed manual transmission, 1.8L, 4-cylinder engine, VVTL-i (variable valve timing with lift), 180 horsepower, 30 mpg

2-door with hatchback, seats 4 passengers, light blue exterior, black leather interior, body kit and spoiler, power door locks, power windows, remote entry/alarm, sliding sunroof, cruise control, heat and a/c in good working order, automatic lights, factory tint on windows, front airbags, aftermarket HID headlights and LED taillights, aftermarket carbon fiber short shifter, aftermarket blue-LED gauge face (blue at night, normal during the day)

Clean carfax record (preview provided in my photos, will give full report to buyer)

Aftermarket sound /navigation/phone system:
- Pioneer AVH-P3200DVD -- 5.8" touch-screen, radio, CD/DVD player, built-in iPod control, GPS navigation, hands-free bluetooth supporting phone or audio (will automatically mute the radio when a call is received, and allow you to speak naturally thru the speakers)
- Crunch amplifier -- 600 watts
- 10" Kicker subwoofer in custom fiberglass box that fits snuggly into the side of the trunk
- Premium JBL speakers

Quirks (because all cars have them):
- The driver's side door actuator motor needs to be replaced in order for the remote and power buttons to lock/unlock the driver's door. Right now the driver's door locks/unlocks only with the key. All other doors work normally. This should not be an expensive repair, and is potentially a DIY project.
- The person who owned the car before me didn't want to pay to fix a broken clockspring in the steering column, which was causing the horn not to work, so they re-wired the horn to sound from a button on the side of the steering wheel. After I bought the car, I had the broken part in the steering column replaced, but a mechanic still needs to re-wire the horn back to the steering wheel for normal usage. In case this is confusing: the horn works, but you have to press a button, not press the center of the steering wheel.
- There are some chips in the paint on the front bumper and some minor (nearly invisible) scratches on the passenger side of the car. There are no dents and no rust.
- Celicas have a rear windshield wiper with its own windshield wiper fluid, however the fluid is not coming out for the rear windshield. The hose possibly needs to be replaced? The fluid works perfectly for the front windshield, and all wipers work normally.

This is, to the best of my knowledge, a full report of the car. I have not had any problems with the transmission grinding. I believe that I had the clutch replaced last year, I will have to search thru my paperwork to verify that. The brakes and tires are in satisfactory condition. The timing belt has been recently replaced (verified by carfax report).

I am selling this car because we're expecting a child, and I need to upgrade to a larger vehicle. If it weren't for that, I would not get rid of the car because it has been very reliable for me and is in good overall condition.

Kelley Blue Book for this car in current condition is $5500. I am asking $6000, which will include the complete aftermarket sound system. I will also accept $5500, but for that price I will take the aftermarket amp, subwoofer, CD/DVD/GPS/bluetooth unit out of the car, and you will need to purchase your own radio. I will leave the speakers and the standard amp that is built into the car.

Please email me if you understand the description I have provided, the price I am asking, and are interested in viewing the car. Cash only, no trades. Car is in the Kansas City area. You must come pick up the car. I will not ship it. I will post more pictures when I have time.

Subprime financing on the rise in new car sales, leasing too

Fri, 07 Dec 2012 08:44:00 EST

We all remember the financial crisis that began several years back. At its core was a splurge of subprime lending for housing loans. The housing bubble burst, triggering a collapse of the mortgage-backed securities market. Apparently, those types of loans still exist in the automotive industry, and the market share for these types of "nonprime, subprime, and deep subprime," loans has grown 13.6 percent compared to the third quarter a year ago.
According to an Automotive News report, high-risk lending expanded to 24.8 percent of total loans in Q3, up from 21.9 percent for this time last year. As this level increased, average credit scores of borrowers dropped to 755, down from 763 a year ago. In that time, the average financing amount increased $90 per vehicle, to $25,963.
At 818, Volvo maintains the highest per-owner credit score, while Mitsubishi has the lowest, at 694. The highest rate of borrowers was at Toyota, with 14 percent of the market, followed by Ford with 13.1 percent and Chevrolet at 11.1.

Toyota launches updated Yaris in Europe, Vitz in Japan [w/videos]

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 07:59:00 EST

Toyota first launched the Yaris in 1999, though that model was sold in the North America as the Echo. The second generation arrived in 2005, replaced by the third in 2011. Sometime next year, Toyota is expected to roll out a new Yaris for North America, to be built in Mexico on the same platform as the next Mazda2. But before that comes to pass, Toyota has introduced a mild facelift for the Yaris in markets other than ours.
With styling cues borrowed from the new Aygo and the Yaris Hybrid-R concept, the new Yaris (for Europe) and Vitz (for Japan) are distinguished by updated styling front and rear. Though the European model bears a more aggressive look than the JDM version, both feature the new X motif that seems to be the new look for the whole family - particularly for small hatchbacks.
The back end has also been revised to incorporate new LED taillights and a (faux) diffuser in the bumper. The cabin, meanwhile, has been redesigned to feel roomier and quieter with upgraded equipment. The suspension has also been refined, and in Europe at least, Toyota will continue to offer the Yaris with a choice of 1.0- or 1.3-liter gasoline engines, 1.4-liter diesel or hybrid powertrains.

J.D. Power study sees new car dependability problems increase for first time since 1998

Wed, 12 Feb 2014 13:31:00 EST

For the first time since 1998, J.D. Power and Associates says its data shows that the average number of problems per 100 cars has increased. The finding is the result of the firm's much-touted annual Vehicle Dependability Study, which charts incidents of problems in new vehicle purchases over three years from 41,000 respondents.
Looking at first-owner cars from the 2011 model year, the study found an average of 133 problems per 100 cars (PP100, for short), up 6 percent from 126 PP100 in last year's study, which covered 2010 model-year vehicles. Disturbingly, the bulk of the increase is being attributed to engine and transmission problems, with a 6 PP100 boost.
Interestingly, JDP notes that "the decline in quality is particularly acute for vehicles with four-cylinder engines, where problem levels increase by nearly 10 PP100." Its findings also noticed that large diesel engines also tended to be more problematic than most five- and six-cylinder engines.
