 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.

Bullet points:
- One owner
- Smoke free

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.

Ford tumbles to second worst in Consumer Reports reliability survey, list dominated by Japanese [w/video]

Mon, 29 Oct 2012 15:59:00 EST

It's no secret that MyFord Touch has had its share of problems since being introduced, but the most recent reliability survey from Consumer Reports shows just how much this infotainment system has affected Ford. Just two years ago, the automaker was in the top 10 for the institute's reliability rankings, but since then, it has tumbled to the second-lowest rung just above dead-last Jaguar. In addition to MyFord Touch, CR also attributes a handful of new products that have had issues right out of the gate.
Compiled from 1.2 million subscriber surveys, this year's auto reliability survey heavily favors Japanese automakers, with eight of the 10 spots hailing from Japan. Toyota brands grabbed the top three spots (Scion, Toyota and Lexus - in that order) with Mazda, Subaru, Honda and Acura filling the next four spots. The only non-Asian automaker cracking the top 10 was Audi at number eight.
Audi climbed a total of 18 spots from last year, and Cadillac and GMC round out this year's top gainers breaking into the top 15. Helping Cadillac's upward movement, the CTS Coupe was named the most reliable domestic car. Lincoln, Volvo and Chrysler join Ford on this year's biggest loser list.

Autocar pits McLaren MP4-12C against turbo Toyota GT86

Thu, 29 Aug 2013 19:58:00 EST

The Toyota GT86, in all of its forms, is one of the best-handling cars money can buy, a trait that can put a smile on the faces of all but the most jaded car enthusiasts. But if good handling isn't what they're looking for, then what is? Our first guess would have to be more power, something the 200-horsepower Toyota would benefit from. Autocar tries out that theory by driving two turbocharged GT86s on track, then pitting the more powerful one against the 616-hp McLaren MP4-12C in a track battle.
The first GT86 turbo Autocar's Steve Sutcliffe drives makes around 255 rear-wheel horsepower and a bucket-load more torque than the stock car. That's plenty of power to either have a lot of fun or get into a lot of trouble. But the GT86 that Sutcliffe tails in the McLaren is race-prepped, stripped to the bone and wears slicks to harness a heavy-hitting 335 hp at the wheel. Weighing in at under 2,500 pounds, the Toyota can't overcome the MP4-12C's power-to-weight ratio of 5.3 pounds per horsepower, but it comes pretty close.
Enjoy a lot of chasing and drifting fun in the video below!

Toyota recalling 800k Camry, Avalon and Venza models for AC issue

Thu, 17 Oct 2013 15:45:00 EST

Toyota has announced plans to voluntarily recall 803,000 vehicles from model years 2012 and 2013, over concerns with the air conditioning condenser housing. The recall covers the Camry, Camry Hybrid, Avalon, Avalon Hybrid and Venza, although the exact split between affected models wasn't available.
According to Toyota, the condenser can leak onto an airbag control module, which in turn could cause a short circuit. In most cases, this will just lead to an airbag warning light, but in rarer instances, the airbags could fail to deploy or pop out of their own accord. There's also a concern over a loss of power steering if the airbag control module develops a short.
It's unclear if there have been any injuries or crashes relating to the defects. Toyota will begin informing owners of affected vehicles via first class mail, and will ask them to report to dealerships for recall work, involving the installation of a cover on the condenser housing.
