Las Cruces, New Mexico, United States


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.

Despite slow sales, no new Scion models in near-term pipeline [w/poll]

Mon, 09 Sep 2013 13:00:00 EST

According to a top Toyota executive, the Japanese automaker will not be introducing any fresh Scion models in the near future, Reuters reports. As of August, Scion sales for this year were down 1.6 percent from 2012 and accounted for only 0.3 percent of Toyota's overall US sales. And last month, Toyota Motor Sales USA Senior Vice President Bob Carter informed the 1,000 dealers who carry Scion that they can drop the brand without penalty.
However, never fear - Carter has assured that, while nothing new is coming for at least six months, the company is still very committed to the quirky Scion brand. Toyota launched Scion, which targets the youth market, in 2003, and sales peaked in 2006. The brand currently has five models, with the 2013 best-sellers being the FR-S sports coupe followed by the tC sedan and xB hatchback.
What do you think about Toyota's decision to hold off on introducing new or refreshed Scion models? Are they heading in the right direction, or does this spell doom for the funky Gen Y brand?

Next-gen Toyota Prius spied inside and out

Fri, 24 May 2013 16:30:00 EST

Toyota has built itself into the industry's standard-bearer when it comes to hybrids, and it isn't going to let the poster child for gas-electric vehicles get stale on the market. These spy shots captured in California are our first good look at the next-generation Prius, which could come to market wearing a 2015 model year designation.
Even though it looks like Toyota may have blown its annual camouflage budget on this mule, we can clearly see that it will have the same iconic half-moon design that has been with the car since 2003. If so, this goes against reports from last year that suggested the car would be getting a different look inspired by the 2013 NS4 Concept. Although, this could also indicate that the Prius family will continue to grow - adding a new sedan - to the existing Prius C, Prius V and Prius Plug-In lineup.
These spy shots also give us an indication as to what the interior will look like, with a more stylish three-spoke steering wheel and an instrument panel design that sort of reminds us of a BMW. On the other hand, all the tape, cobbled together pieces and lack of space for a center stack display screen has us thinking this isn't what the final product will resemble.

Toyota, Mercedes, BMW top automakers included in List of Best Global Brands

Tue, 01 Oct 2013 16:30:00 EST

Interbrand, a consultancy firm, has published its 13th annual list of the best global brands. Besides seeing some shakeups at the top - Apple and Google unseated Coca-Cola (a company that has dominated the survey since its birth), the 100-item list features 14 automakers, most of which enjoyed double-digit gains in brand value.
Toyota managed to retain its spot as the study's top automaker. It finished the survey in 10th position overall (the same as last year), despite a 17-percent improvement in its brand value, from $29.33 billion to $35.34 billion. Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Honda all made the top 20, at 11th, 12th and 20th place, respectively. Hopping a ways down the list, we come across Volkswagen in 34th place, up from 39th in last year's study, with a brand value of $11.12 billion, a 20-percent improvement over 2012. Ford and Hyundai round out the automakers in the top 50, at 42 and 43.
Porsche made the largest year-over-year gain of any automaker, with its brand value increasing 26 percent to $6.47 billion. Chevrolet meanwhile, cracks the list for the very first time at 89th place. As Interbrand notes, Chevy's inclusion is notable because of the sheer number of vehicles it moves for General Motors and its recent push in developing markets. The final interesting note on this survey is the position of an automaker that takes its name and logo more seriously than perhaps any other - Ferrari. The Italian exotic manufacturer finished 98th out of 100, with just $4.01 billion in brand value, a six-percent improvement over 2012.
