BID WITH CONFIDENCE - NO RESERVE
2002 Toyota MR2 Spyder 2dr Convertible (1.8L 4cyl) with Silver Exterior, Grey Cloth Interior. Loaded with 1.8L I4 EFI Engine, 6-Speed Sequential Manual Transmission, Black Soft Top, Leather Steering Wheel Trim, Pioneer/Focal Audio System, Power Windows, Power Door Locks, Power Exterior Mirrors, Staggered Alloy Wheels and more.
This MR2 has been meticulously maintained with full synthetic oil every 3000 miles and Purolator Pure One filters (I have a new one i will include as well). It has always received New OEM parts when service's have been done. The only non-wear items we have ever had to replace were 2 Oxygen sensors recently (replaced with Bosch OEM units in august) and a Valve cover gasket at 75,000. It has been incredibly reliable and babied since we bought it with 54,000 miles off our good friend.
This generation MR2 is know to be one of the best handling convertibles on the road. At 2195 LBS it is very light and nimble. Mid engine and RWD make a perfect combination for anyone looking to have a fun weekend car, and the reliable Toyota engine is perfect around town and on long trips with 26mpg in town, and 32mpg highway.
The non-power convertible top makes for easy up and downs, and makes replacing the top if need a non-hassle pocket friendly ordeal compared to expensive power tops. Toyota also made the right choice to have a glass rear window in the top, which never fades like cheap vinyl windows, and also has rear defroster.
The 2003 MR2 also comes with staggered aluminum wheels for better handling and a sporty look. The car currently has Yokohama S-Drive tires with plenty of life left in them, these are summer performance tires that grip very well and are excellent in the rain.
The AC is cold and the Heat is hot, we have never had any issues with either system.
There is an AEM cold air intake installed to open up the restrictive OEM air box, and take full advantage of the functional side scoops.
I installed Denso Iridium spark plugs at 80,000 miles as well, these are rated for 60k+ miles!
Best Buy installed a Pioneer AVH-P2300DVD touchscreen DVD/CD head unit as well as Focal 6.5 speakers and tweeters. The speakers are not low quality at all and not even the cheapest Focal 6.5 series either. They have Excellent clarity. The head unitis easy to use and we have never had any problems with it. It has a Front USB port for hooking up anything as an external source. It works exceptionally well with any iphone/ipod.
The MR2 is equipped with the 6 speed Sequential Manual Transmission, or SMT. This allows the driver change gears up or down using the shifter, or buttons on the steering wheel (up/down on both sides for left or right hands). the transmission acts like a manual, has no park or full auto mode, but offers perfect clutch-less engagement every time.
This MR2 Does have miles, and has been used on many many road trips from California to Mississippi and up to pikes peak all from here in new mexico. Never once have we been let down by this car. The car does however show some use. The paint has some scratches, to include some rock chips on the front and very light paint damage to the passenger rear. It was also involved in an accident to the front passenger side, and had the bumper, light and some suspension components replaced. I am very picky about my MR2, and only OEM parts were used by a qualified body shop, and I even made them repaint the front bumper because it wasn't perfect. the car has been in new mexico for a while now and has never seen snow and has been kept in our garage since we have owned it. Mileage may increase slightly, but it will not be driven daily, and not at all once bids are entered.
If you have ANY questions at all please do not be afraid to contact me. Please contact me if you plan to have the car shipped as well. we will certainly work with what ever shipping company you choose and i can even recommend a few that i have used in the past. Thanks.
