Gold Beach, Oregon, United States

Beautiful original condition, on only its 3rd owner, this Cruiser had to be parked indoors all or most of its life, just recently moved closer to the coast. 10,000 miles ago the engine was rebuilt by a Toyota Engine shop (I have receipts) and shortly after that the tranny needed it too.  This Land Cruiser runs fantastic, it runs as good as it looks, maybe better!  Interior is very nice also, for a 26 year old vehicle, it is in remarkable condition inside and out (see photos).  No tears on the seats, door panels, headliner or carpet, dash is cherry.  Only flaw in the interior is in the back carpet where the prior owner installed lap belts for the back seat and could have done a better job around the carpet where it bolts to the floor.  It has some rock chips on the hood.  Virtually no rust at all, only light surface rust on the wipers and roof rack.  Go camping, fishing, hunting or prospecting and not be scared to death your gonna get a scratch on it.  Take it out and enjoy it!  

This handsome Land Cruiser has had the best of care throughout its lifetime, my mechanic and owner of the Tire Factory store in Gold Beach has been all over it, has driven it home a couple of times and says that it is really a solid vehicle and that he enjoys driving it.  Really the only thing that doesn't work is the fuel gage and with a 36 gallon tank I just keep track of it with the trip-ometer, reseting it at fill ups.  The original owner was a wild life photographer and had the oversize tank installed where the spare normally goes, thats why the spare tire is up on the rack. Every thing else works, power door locks, rear glass defroster, A/C (brrrrrr), original radio with new retractable antenna, etc. 

Other recent service are:  New Radiator & tranny cooler, water pump, Starter & Alternator, distributor cap, rotor, plugs & wires, New tires & wheels, steering dampener, New Battery, O2 Sensor, A/C charged, Valve Adjustment, new Brake Calipers, tires rotated, brakes are good.

With the engine & trans rebuilt at 253K and the body and interior so well taken care of, it is ready to go another 250,000, a timeless classic.

2014 Toyota Highlander recalled over seatbelt anchors

Mon, 10 Mar 2014 16:00:00 EST

Toyota has announced a small recall of its redesigned, 2014 Highlander over issues with one of its seat belts. The affected vehicles, which were built from November 20, 2013 to January 18, 2014, could have a seatbelt assembly in the middle seat of the third row that wasn't properly secured to a floor anchorage at the factory.
In total, 7,067 of the new Highlanders are included in the recall, which was discovered not after a crash, but during a post-build inspection at the factory. It's unclear if there have been any injuries as a result of the faulty seat belts.
Toyota is set to inform owners of the affected vehicles as well as dealers with the recalled Highlander models in their inventory. Naturally, repairs will be performed free of charge. For the full bulletin form the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, scroll down.

2014 Toyota Corolla coming Thursday, now with LED headlamps

Tue, 04 Jun 2013 09:32:00 EST

Here's what we know about the redesigned 2014 Toyota Corolla: It will have "aggressive new styling" with "available seventeen-inch alloy wheels" an "available touch screen audio" system and "available LED headlights."
We know all of this because Toyota has seen fit to release a small assortment of teaser images of the 2014 Corolla, with those descriptions attached. The latest to hit the web shows LED lighting clusters, which, to Toyota's credit, don't appear to merely mimic designs already seen in the automotive world.
We should point out that the headlights do share a link to the units seen on the Furia Concept that was supposed to foreshadow the next Corolla, though the most interesting bits - namely the honeycomb inner pattern - have been chucked while the somewhat trapezoidal main units remain intact.

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.
