1991 Toyota Mr2 Base Coupe 2-door 2.2l on 2040-cars
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
Imported from Arizona in the late 1990s and had been serviced at Kingsway Lexus Toyota by the previous owner. Never been raced and always owned by mature owners to my knowledge. No knowledge of work on engine and transmission other than routine service work. Timing belt done about 30,000-40,000 miles ago, and struts on all four corners replaced just before sale to me in September last year, although my mechanic told me that the rear passenger side shock might be leaking a bit. Installed a brand new power steering rack, driver side seatbelt and high amp battery in April 2014.
I have driven it maybe 1,000 kilometers since I had it. The car has zero drivability issues to my knowledge. It also has remote start but doesnít work although the key-less entry works fine. In tracing the inoperative driver side door courtesy light we found that it has no ground, and that may also explain why the power mirrors donít work. Has some white rust stabilizer applied to a small patch of surface rust on the lower corner of the driver's door and a year later it looks like the rust has been stabilized. A couple of small dings on roof. A leather patch on the driver's seat bottom and split in the passenger side seat bottom. A/C needs recharge. The driver side fog light has a crack in the lens, and needs a reverse light switch. Tires are 195/55 R15 all seasons with 50% left on the fronts and 75% on the rears for a rough estimate.
I have owned several classics and even though I wouldnít claim it to be mint I donít have any hesitation in saying that this is by far one of the best well looked after cars particularly at this mileage. I have described the condition of the vehicle to the best of my ability, but please use it as a guide and arrange to have it inspected or ask questions if you need any clarification.
Price is in US Dollars.

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.
Toyota will be bringing a new concept car to the Frankfurt Motor Show next month. Dubbed Hybrid-R, Toyota says the concept will feature the same Toyota Hybrid System-Racing tech found in the automaker's latest endurance car, the TS030 Hybrid.

That car took second place at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, with a gas-powered, 3.4-liter, naturally aspirated V8 and a capacitor-based hybrid system. The result was 530 ponies from the engine and an extra 300 horsepower from the electric motor and batteries.
Toyota's press release came with but one image, a new Hybrid badge which is a far cry from the Hybrid Synergy Drive label found on the automaker's other offerings. There's really not much else to go on yet, but the news that Toyota is already adapting its racing tech for a concept bodes well for the future of exciting, hybridized offerings from the automaker. We'll be at Frankfurt live, and will be sure to bring you all the news on this new concept as it becomes available.
Back in June, Toyota and BMW announced a "memorandum of understanding" outlining plans for the two companies to join forces on future products and technology development. On Thursday, they signed a more formal and binding agreement that goes further into detail about the partnership, and it all sounds pretty exciting. The two announced they will work together in four main areas:
Joint development of a fuel cell system
"Set up a feasibility study to define a joint platform concept for a mid-size sports vehicle"
