 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 confirms i-Road electric trike for production

Tue, 08 Oct 2013 08:57:00 EST

The wacky, three-wheeled Toyota i-Road we saw in Geneva earlier this year will be heading to production. But before you run down to your local Toyota dealer looking for one of these all-electric "personal mobility" vehicles, chances are, you'll never actually see one unless you visit Japan.
Announced at the Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies (CEATEC) expo last week, Toyota said that the i-Road would be used as a part of the Ha:Mo car-sharing system in Japan. Weighing in at around 661 pounds, with a 28-mile-per-hour top speed and a two-passenger seating arrangement, the i-Road seems more like a fully enclosed scooter than a car, but it does offer a 30-mile driving range and has a nifty articulating front suspension that leans into corners. As for Ha:Mo, Toyota says that the number of cars in the program will increase from 10 prior to October 1 to 100 by the middle of this month, and the number of stations will almost double from 13 up to 21. Toyota has more details about the car and Ha:Mo in the press release posted below.

Toyota recalls 4,000 Tacoma pickups over valve springs

Thu, 07 Nov 2013 11:00:00 EST

When you build as many cars and trucks as Toyota does, you're bound to run into the occasional recall. In the past month alone, the Japanese auto giant has recalled over 800,000 Camry, Avalon and Venza models over problems with the air-conditioning units, and 10,000 more before that over windshield wiper issues. Now Toyota has issued another recall notice, but this time for far fewer vehicles.
The recall revolves around the engine valve springs in the 2013 and 2014 Tacoma, specifically those fitted with the standard 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine and not the optional 4.0-liter V6. The issue is that the valve springs are prone to cracking and breaking over time, and results from improper maintenance of the manufacturing equipment used by one of the two suppliers that outfit Toyota with the components in question.
All told, some 4,000 vehicles will be subject to the voluntary recall, the owners of which will receive notice by mail. If you think that could be you and want to get a jump on the problem, you can read the announcement below and call Toyota yourself.

4th-gen Toyota Prius production delayed by 6 months

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 17:59:00 EST

If you were holding off buying a new car in anticipation of the fourth-generation Toyota Prius arriving in 2015, your wait might be a little longer. Company insiders are claiming that production of the bestselling hybrid is being pushed back from spring to possibly as late as December 2015. Toyota is reportedly still making alterations to make sure everything is just right before it unleashes the all-important, efficient hatch on a waiting public.
According to unnamed sources speaking to Automotive News Europe, the main reasons for the delay aren't completely known. It's believed the engineers are still working on making the hybrid powertrain more efficient and improving the new Toyota Global Architecture modular platform. The insiders claim that the final production prototype of the Prius is still under development, and it might be November before it's finalized. From there, it usually takes around 12 months to tool up and for the first car to roll off the assembly line. It would be another year after that before the plug-in variant starts assembly. The national manager of Toyota Product Communications, Michael Kroll, told AutoblogGreen, "As you might expect, we can't comment on future product plans."
Despite the delay, some potential details have already emerged about the new hybrid. A company spokesperson recently told Autoblog via email that Toyota is engineering the next-gen Prius to have smaller, more power-dense electric motors and greater thermal efficiency. The new modular platform is also rumored reduce weight, and the changes could lead to a targeted 10 percent improvement in fuel economy.
