 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser - Donít bother bidding if you donít understand what youíre getting yourself into.  You see, this monster canít be reined in by just anyone.  No, this colossus on 4 wheels can only be harnessed by those of superior strength and virility. The first time I drove the Cruiser, a fully formed Viking beard spontaneously erupted from my face. Iím certain that lesser menís heads would simply have exploded from the overdose of awesome.  Do not try to corral this demon unless you are completely sure of your manhood.  

This behemoth is the definition of a mobile fortress, featuring an FMF front steel bumper and FMF rear steel bumper with tire holder, Rock sliders, Fender flares, and a 3Ē All Pro lift kit and new suspension. Itís rumored that the Cruiser is the secret location where the President and Vice President are kept safe during times of national crisis, but I can neither confirm nor deny this.

Dark outside? Cruiser donít care. With Halo headlights and LED tail lights, itís like a freaking solar explosion everywhere you go. Actually, thatís giving the sun too much credit. The sun wishes it could put out light like the Cruiser, but instead it just hides 92 million miles away. What a wimp.

I have never driven the Cruiser off road. Oh, but you could.  The Irok Swamper 35Ē tires on Pro Comp wheels can decimate any obstacle standing in their path. With the Cruiserís Warn winch, you could have yourself a tug-o-war against a mountain. Just keep in mind that mountains tend to be sore losers. The Cruiserís Safari snorkel also means itís not afraid of a little mud and water. You know what is afraid? Mud and water. Entire rivers have been known to dry up in the Cruiserís presence.

The Cruiser also has an aftermarket air compressor, factory rear locker and ARB front locker. The sole reason the Cruiser hasnít seen offroad terrain is my serious concern for the wellbeing of the Alaskan wilderness. I doubt anything less than concrete and asphalt could withstand the raging inferno of manliness that radiates from this metallic monstrosity.

The Cruiserís directed remote start also means you donít have to leave your house to start this monster up. This isnít your normal remote start system, though. It was painstakingly reverse engineered from the wreckage of the alien craft found at Roswell. Theoretically, this remote start could transport the Cruiser directly to Alpha Centauri in the blink of an eye. But the Cruiser simply refuses to teleport. Nobody knows why.

The Cruiser is formidable, only a chosen few can master it. But once you assert your dominance and gain the beastís respect, the rewards you reap are truly beyond compare.

*I am required to inform you that pregnant women and women who are breastfeeding should not handle or be near the FJ Cruiser due to the dangers of too much testosterone. They probably shouldnít even look at it. Youíve been warned.

I love this SUV and spent $65,000 on it. But due to having two other cars and some unexpected business issues I am forced to sell it. I have the clear title to the FJ with no lien on it.

If you want this inspected please contact me prior to bidding. I am willing to take it anywhere within Anchorage, Alaska to be inspected at your expense.

I purchased it in February 2012 so it has the remainder of the Toyota warranty on it. But due to serious modifications certain parts of the warranty are most likely void. The aftermarket parts are no longer covered under any warranty that I'm aware of.

Shipping costs are your responsibility. I have shipped cars from Anchorage to Seattle for $800 previously using Alaska Auto Transport (Google it). Of course please check with them, Wrightway Auto (the other local shipper) or your favorite shipper for shipping costs prior to bidding. They should be able to handle shipping nationwide. I'm happy to bring the FJ to any car shipper in Anchorage for you.

As the vehicle is driven once in a while there may be more miles on it than the listing. I also reserve the right to end this auction if I receive a legitimate offer either locally or long distance.

I expect a $1,000 non-refundable deposit within 24 hours of you winning the auction. If this is not received I reserve the right to re list the vehicle. I expect the total amount within 7 days. I will accept wire transfer or certified check.

If you have any questions please contact me through Ebay. I will email you back or include your phone number and I'll call you right away.

Toyota sells 3-millionth Prius

Sun, 07 Jul 2013 08:59:00 EST

Three generations in sixteen years and more than three million units sold worldwide - as of the end of June, those are the stats on the Toyota Prius. Even though Toyota says Prius sales might not reach the goal of 250,000 units this year, the little hybrid that could still doesn't have any problem flying off dealer lots. The second-generation Prius sold 1.2 million examples in its eight-year lifespan, and the third generation, introduced in 2009, has sold 1.7 million examples in just four years.
Toyota is also touting its investment in future powertrains, some 790 billion yen ($7.9 billion US) on research and development into new platforms and components, and "environmental technology development."
The press release below has more details, the future undoubtedly has more Priuses Prii in it.

Has the auto industry hit peak hybrid?

Thu, 12 Jun 2014 09:30:00 EST

Hybrids are known for their great fuel economy and low emissions, but it looks like given current market conditions, only about three percent of new car consumers are willing to pay the premium for them. A new study from IHS/Polk finds that the hybrid market share among overall US auto sales are falling, despite more models with the technology on sale than ever before.
The study examined new car registrations in March from 2009 through 2014. In that time, the auto industry grew from 24 to 47 hybrid models available to consumers, but market share for the powertrain remained almost stagnant in that time. As of 2009, hybrids held 2.4 percent of the market; it fell slightly to 2.3 percent in 2010 and grew to 3.3 percent in 2013. However, 2014 showed a drop back to 3 percent. Overall hybrid sales have been growing since 2010, but they just aren't keeping up with the total auto market.
According to IHS/Polk, this isn't what you would expect to see. Usually, each new model in the market brings along with it a boost in sales. The growth in hybrid models 2009 to 2014 should have shown a larger increase in share for the segment.

Total auto recalls already on record pace in 2014

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 18:30:00 EST

If you've noticed that there have been more recalls than usual this year, you may be on to something. According to a report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the US market is on pace to break a record for recalls. In 2013, 22 million cars were recalled. We're only a third of the way through 2014, though, and we've already halved that figure, with 11 million units recalled. That's wild.
Considering the past few months, it shouldn't be a surprise that General Motors is leading the charge, with six million of the 11 million units recalled coming from one of the General's four brands. Between truck recalls, CUV recalls and the ignition switch recall, 2014 hasn't been a great year for GM.
Other recall leaders include Nissan (one million Sentra and Altima sedans), Honda (900,000 Odyssey minivans), Toyota (over one million units in a few recalls), Volkswagen (150,000 Passat sedans), Chrysler (644,000 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs) and most recently, Ford (434,000 units, the bulk of which were early Ford Escape CUVs). So while it's been a bad year for GM so far, its competitors aren't doing too well, either.
