2 x Toyota Tercel 4x4 SR-5 Wagons:
I'll keep this short and simple. We have 2 wagons for sale with one title for the undamaged bronze wagon. Both cars are complete and have not ran in years.
Silver and Blue car:
-This car was wrecked head on (by me) and a little rusty but complete with a good driveline with 183k miles and a newer head and carb. This car drove away from the wreck and onto the trailer to get it home.
-Full of great spares for the other car
-Full SR-5 interior with inclinometer on dash and plaid seats that could probably be rehabbed with a good scrubbing
-6 speed extra low 1st gear transmission
-this car immediately fires when turned over and shot with starter fluid
-Excellent rust-free body
-broken back glass
-complete SR-5 interior just like other car
-6 speed trans
-engine spins freely
So here's the deal, both cars ran in the last 5+ years and were our personal vehicles. The bronze car is missing 2nd gear and the the wrecked car has a good complete driveline. The plan was to swap in the engine and trans from wrecked car and have a nice rust free driver with a complete parts car with another good engine. Both cars have some mildew inside and need a good cleaning. The silver car probably has the better interior so I would swap that in too. These cars are getting extremely hard to find and are the only 4x4's I know of that get an honest 35 MPG on the highway. I have tried to be accurate and honest in the description of these cars but I encourage you to look at the cars before you bid so there are no questions as of their condition. I am selling these cars for my father and we have nothing to hide.

Now, hold on. This recall isn't quite as serious as it sounds. Yes, Toyota is recalling 11,489 FJ Cruiser models from the 2007 to 2013 model years, and yes, it's because the vehicles, as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states, "fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, 'Lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment.'" But read the fine print and you'll see the catch: This recall is only for vehicles fitted with the automaker's auxiliary lighting kit that can be mounted to the front bumper.
Basically, the auxiliary lamp assemblies use 55-watt bulbs, and when these are turned on in conjunction with the upper beam headlamps, it's a pretty blinding sight. NHTSA states that excessively bright lights can blind other drivers, increasing the risk for a crash.
To remedy the situation, Toyota will replace the 55-watt bulbs with cooler 35-watt units. The recall is expected to begin later this month. Scroll down for the full details in the NHTSA report.
UPDATE: Just like that, Toyota has released an official statement confirming its $1.2-million dollar settlement with the US Attorney's Office. Our story has been updated to reflect this development and the automaker's official statement has been added below.
Toyota has reached a settlement over the criminal probe into its unintended acceleration problems, and the outcome is more expensive than first expected. The Japanese automaker has agreed to pay $1.2 billion to close the investigation among other settlement terms. The criminal inquiry focused on whether the company kept information from regulators and how it handled drivers' complaints about the problems, according to the sources.
Between 2009 and 2010, Toyota ended up recalling over 10 million vehicles worldwide over sudden acceleration fears. Fixes include modifying floor mats, gas pedals, and installing brake override software on affected models. In addition, Toyota made the latter standard on all of its new vehicles.
Toyota has announced pricing on its facelifted 2014 4Runner. The rough-and-tumble SUV will be available in three grades: base SR5, upmarket Limited and off-road-ready Trail. Depending on the trim level, buyers will have the choice of rear-drive or one of two different four-wheel drive systems. The sole engine is Toyota's 4.0-liter, 270-horsepower V6.
Entry-level buyers can get an SR5 for $32,820. That includes 17-inch wheels, fabric seats and Toyota's Entune infotainment system. Adding four-wheel drive bumps the price by $2,920, while the Premium Package (SofTex faux leather seats, navigation, sunroof, auto-dimming mirrors and power passenger seat) adds $1,875. All model prices listed do not include $860 for destination and tax.
The Trail starts at $35,725, while the Trail Premium bumps the price to $38,645, adding the same suite of equipment found on the SR5. While it boasts the same standard equipment as the SR5, the Trail is better suited for going off road. A multi-terrain response system comes standard, as does hill-start assist and Toyota's Crawl Control. For an extra sum, buyers can opt for the Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System, which automatically disconnects the sway bars for better articulation and trail holding.
