2010 Toyota Prius Base Hatchback 4-door 1.8l on 2040-cars
Eureka Springs, Arkansas, United States
I bought this vehicle new at Fayetteville Autopark in Fayetteville, Arkansas. This has been a commuter car from the purchase date of 03/01/2010 until 09/01/2012. I drove this vehicle 100 miles for 5 days a week. The car is clean inside because I am the only person using this car. The paint is chipped and scratched because of the road conditions in rural Arkansas. There is only one small dent, the kind the light has to be just right to see, in the rear passenger door. This car is mechanically perfect because it has been serviced by Toyota at the Fayetteville Autopark since I bought it. I just had the 75,000 mile service completed on 8/26/2014. This car has had body work done on it by the body shop at Fayetteville Autopark. A deer ran into the drivers front door and dented the driver's side rear door. This car was lightly hail damaged and the repair was done without having to be repainted. Also a deer kicked the drivers side rear quarter panel and it was repaired using some body filler because the dent was in the main structure of the rear of the car, just beside the rear door. The dent the deer kicking the car made was the size of a half dollar. I have all records of service and repair.
I am selling this car because I have retired and no longer commute from Eureka Springs, Arkansas to Fayetteville, Arkansas. I have two other vehicles besides the Prius.
I will accept cashier checks, cash or paypal and can meet halfway if you live too far away. This car is paid for and I have the title. It is a clear title and is ready for transfer to the buyer.
The rims shown in the photograph are not on the car now. The factory rims with wheel covers are installed with good tires.

Over the past two years, Toyota has invested more than $2 billion at its North American production facilities, and it apparently doesn't plan on stopping there. To keep up with recent strong sales, Toyota is investing an additional $200 million at its engine plants in the Southern US to increase production capacity of its V6 engines.

The bulk of this money ($150 million) will go to expand Toyota's engine plant in Huntsville, AL, which is currently responsible for supplying engines - four-cylinder, V6 and V8 - to eight of Toyota's 12 domestically produced vehicles. That includes the best-selling Toyota Camry (shown above).
Toyota didn't say exactly what improvements are being made to the plant, but this follows last year's $80 million investment in the plant that is set to be completed by next year raising the engine capacity to 750,000 annual units including 362,000 V6s. The remaining $50 million will go to the casting plants of Toyota-owned Bodine Aluminum in Missouri and Tennessee, which supply engine blocks and cylinder heads to the Huntsville engine plant as well as others in Kentucky and West Virginia. Scroll down below for the official press release.
Turbocharging isn't really Toyota's specialty, and the Japanese automaker isn't being shy about acknowledging it. Koei Saga, a senior managing officer in charge of drivetrain research and development, says that eschewing turbos and increasing displacement of engines using the Atkinson cycle can produce better power gains without sacrificing fuel economy, Automotive News reports.

Toyota is investing heavily in larger-displacement Atkinson-cycle engines in addition to turbocharged engines, but Saga doesn't think the automaker will use turbocharging across many product lines. He apparently remains unconvinced that the technology "makes the world better."
In Toyota's eyes then, Atkinson cycle engines do make the world better, and here's how. Their pistons complete four processes - intake, compression, power and exhaust - in one revolution of the crankshaft, and the power stroke is longer than the compression stroke. Traditional Otto cycle engines require two crankshaft revolutions to accomplish those same four operations and have equal-length compression and power strokes. Atkinson cycle engines are more efficient, but less power dense, though increasing displacement can offset that shortfall.
