White - Mr2 No Turbo Charger on 2040-cars
Palmdale, California, United States
My wife bought this car new and within 90 days someone turned left in front of her on Pacific Ave. Venice and there is no where to go. It did extensive damage to the front end but because it was such a square hit the unitized frame/body did not suffer any twisting or mishaping. The insurance company still felt it was cheaper to pay it off then to repair it. My wife took the money and had Venice Beach Auto Body, repair the car. This same business is still in operation. In 2007 I bought the car from her for business write off purposes for using my own car. I then began going through the car mechanically for maximum reliability during my 100 mile round trip daily for my work. In 2010 I switched over to my pick-up for that travel and keep the MR2 for a back-up vehicle. I have since retired and although I have had it sitting in the driveway ever since, I have just now decided that I should sell it.
This car has always been Smoke-Free,
It's radio is the top of the line Toyota radio for that year. It is an AM/FM, and cassette stereo player.
The stock speakers in the headliner are no longer available so I had these reconditioned approx. 3 years ago.. Nothing else fits in that space.
With the exception of the body work and the catalytic converter (Magic Muffler) all repair work has been at Marina Toyota in Marina Del Rey and I have the complete folder of receipts and work orders for this car.
I don't think there is much difference in the DMV's everywhere. Paper work must be completed in advance and received and registered by the DMV. Payment will be cash, certified check or paypal. I am a member of AAA and we may well be able to do it at a AAA office.
This is going to be a great find for whomever buys this car. With very little work and new paint, this car will look fantastic and easily admired by those with an eye for cars.

Toyota has filed a petition with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration asking for a waiver to avoid recalling about 206,271 2012-2014 Camry, Avalon, Corolla, Sienna, Tundra and Tacoma vehicles, some of its most popular models. The affected vehicles contain seat heaters that might not meet government flammability standards. Toyota says in the waiver that "the chance of fire or flame induced by a malfunctioning seat heater is essentially zero," according to The Detroit News. The automaker notes the part makes up less than one percent of the seat's weight.

Initial reports of the problem arose in late January when Toyota issued a stop-sale order for 2013 and 2014 model year versions of those vehicles. The automaker says that there have no been reports of fires or injuries in the affected cars, and the problem was discovered during testing by the South Korean government, according to The Detroit News.
We've reached out to Toyota for comment on this development and are awaiting a reply. We'll update this post if and when we hear back.
The Mazda CX-5 stamped its Kodo design and SkyActiv technology authority all over the Japan Car of the Year awards, taking the top prize ahead of the Subaru BRZ/Toyota GT 86. It is Mazda's second victory in the last ten years, the 2005 MX-5 claiming the same trophy, and the fourth time the Hiroshima company has won.

The award is decided by 60 local "automotive experts and journalists," and open to any passenger car released in Japan from November 1, 2011 to October 31, 2012 that has sold more than 500 units. Each judge gets 25 votes, his or her top vote getting 10 points, the rest of the points being spread among the judge's choice for the next best four cars.
The second-place getters were the Toyobaru twins with 318 votes, the surprise being they didn't beat or get any closer to the crossover. The Subaru BRZ did claw some mojo back, earning the Special Award given to cars that have made "an exceptional impact." The BMW 3 Series was third overall and won the Import Car of the Year award with plenty of room between it and the second place Range Rover Evoque.
Australian consumers appear poised to get another diesel-burning luxury SUV in the near future, and word is it's coming from Lexus, of all automakers. Sean Hanley, chief executive of the company's branch in Oz, recently told Aussie website Drive that he's "pretty confident" that the new engine for the LX is getting the green light.
Like in the US, the LX in Australia is currently only offered with a 5.7-liter, gasoline-burning V8. However, sales of the big SUV are presently minuscule Down Under, with Drive reporting just 153 LX570s sold in all of Oz last year. Hanley is negotiating with Japan to get the new diesel in hopes of boosting flagging sales. If his efforts are successful, it would be the first diesel engine offered in a Lexus there. Hanley didn't specify exactly which mill the SUV would get. However, given the LX's close relationship with Toyota Land Cruiser, the diesel 4.5-liter twin-turbo V8 already available in the Toyota in markets outside of North America seems like a natural choice.
Don't expect the variant to be hopping across the Pacific, though. Lexus spokesperson Allison Takahashi tells Autoblog she has heard "nothing" about an oil-burning LX coming to the US. That's not a huge surprise, though, because neither Toyota nor Lexus offer any diesels in their lineups today. Also, Lexus has only sold 1,981 LX570s through June, which only placed it ahead of the LFA supercar in the brand's sales. It's probably just not worth certifying the engine for such a low-volume model.
