2012 Toyota Prius C Base Hatchback 4-door 1.5l on 2040-cars
Anchorage, Alaska, United States
I am selling my 2012 Toyota Prius c. I bought the car from the Toyota dealership November 2013. The car has about 20k miles on it (vehicle is still in use, so ileage will increase slightly by the time of sale), and is in "Like New" Condition. There are no scratches, dings, dents, or cosmetic issues. The engine, drive train, ect. is also in like new condition, and all maintananence has been done at the dealership. I am selling the car because I am moving out to the Alaskan Bush to teach, and there is no need for a car out there.
The car's color is Habenero, firey orange-red. It comes with 1 year left on the Factory Bumper-to-Bumper warranty. It also has a 7 year powertrain warranty, and a 10-year battery warranty. Included with the car is a new set of studded winter tires (used 1 winter only). This is seriously a fun car to drive, and at 51mpg CITY, it's a very economical car. It costs about $30 to fill up, and I fill up about once every 3 weeks.
The car comes with power EVERYTHING, and comes with the standard factory audio-- AM/FM/CD Changer, and Bluetooth. The car is FWD, and includes a great traction control for those icy days. The car comes with both "ECO" and "EV" modes-- which basically help to superboost the MPG.

Toyota has announced that it will be issuing a recall of 690,000 Tacoma pickups from model years 2005 through 2011. The affected vehicles include both the four-wheel-drive model and the two-wheel-drive PreRunner (but not the standard 4x2 pickups), which may have a rather serious problem with their rear suspensions.

In some cases, corrosion and stress could cause one of the three or four leaves in the rear suspension's leaf springs to fracture. While the trucks can still be driven with a broken leaf, Toyota is concerned that it could move out of position and impact other components in the rear of the truck, with a particular focus on the fuel tank. Needless to say, but a piece of metal continuously impacting anything, let alone the fuel tank, is cause for concern.
As of this writing, there have been no reports of crashes, injuries, fires or deaths due to this problem, although that won't stop Toyota from informing all affected customers of the issue. Those 690,000 owners will need to report in to dealers for inspections and, if necessary, repairs.
Toyota recently introduced the all-new 2015 Camry for the street, so it follows that it should want to promote its new bread-and-butter sedan by putting it out on the racetrack as well. And that's just what it's done here with the release of the new Toyota Camry for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

The new Camry represents the first reskin of the standard stock car chassis since the Gen-6 model was introduced in 2012. Toyota's Calty Design studio worked closely with series organizers to determine which parts could be redesigned to more closely resemble the new production model, and what you see here is the result. Since it is based on the same control chassis as all the others, the Camry's skin is applied over a steel tube frame and powered by an old-school 5.86-liter pushrod V8 mated to a four-speed manual gearbox.
Although the idea of a Japanese automaker in American stock car racing didn't initially get the warmest reception from some of the good ol' boys when it first entered the series back in 2007, it has by now become a staple of the NASCAR circuit. After all, it's hard for even the most patriotic of racing fans to argue with the US-built Camry's ranking as one of the most American cars by content on the market.
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?
