First time listing a vehicle on Ebay so I want to get it right.  I have a first generation Toyota 4 Runner for sale.  This is a California truck, has only been in Virginia since February of 2012.  Major renovation work completed prior to my purchasing.  New paint job using original color in the last 2 years.  There are some dings and scratches, I will post pictures.  The only rust I can find is some minor surface rust from the scratches.  All new upholstery including the seats and door panels.  The chasis has roughly 301,000 miles on it but the motor has had extensive work done.  In the last couple of months I had the top end professionally rebuilt including new camshaft and rollers.  The shop advised that everything looked great, the timing chain and all the pulleys had already been replaced and in good condition.  The truck burns no oil, no smoke with startup, runs great.  Automatic transmission works fine.  Note, the truck is 4wd but someone at some point removed the front drive shaft.  Since we have never had it off road we didn't even realize it, runs fine without it.  Our shop would charge $250 ($150 part, $100 labor) to put one back on but I recommend checking with your mechanic.  There is an aftermarket stereo in the truck that works great but it appears only the front speakers work.  There are some accessory cables/jacks for extra components.  AC blows cold, heat works fine. I just put new tires on it ($700). In the back the cover for the rear window wiper motor is missing but the wiper works fine as well as the rear window.  The only other thing that I am aware of that does not work is the backlight for the heat and air switch doesn't work, at night you can't see those switches.   Truck currently has Ranchero adjustable shocks and rides like a light weight truck.  I bought this for my wife to use to commute to work and she doesn't like it, so it is time to sell.  I do have it advertised locally so I reserve the right to end early.  Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer.  Your are welcome to have it checked out (at your cost), I can provide the name of a couple local shops including the one who has done all of the work. Realize I am not a mechanic and I have described this vehicle to the best of my ability, and keep in mind it is a SUV that is over 20 year sold.  No warranties expressed or implied.   Thanks for looking!!!

Mazda CX-5 named Japan's Car of The Year, Subaru BR-Z wins "Special Award"

Mon, 03 Dec 2012

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.

Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race Scion FR-S [w/video]

Thu, 07 Mar 2013

Toyota has been hosting its Pro/Celebrity race at the Toyota Grand Prix on Long Beach since 1977. The charity event, which has raised millions of dollars over the years, traditionally pits Hollywood celebrities against professional athletes (including race car drivers) on the full Grand Prix course in modified street vehicles. The short, sprint-style race is popular with the crowds as the amateur drivers race uninhibited - the result is an action-packed race with plenty of excitement and automotive... er... carnage.
Over the decades, the drivers have raced a variety of Toyota products including last year's front-wheel-drive Scion tC. But this year, Toyota announced at the Chicago Auto Show that the new rear-wheel-drive Scion FR-S would be stepping up to the plate. The good news only became better when Toyota Motorsports invited us out to Southern California's Willow Springs Raceway (the same circuit where the drivers train and practice) to be one of the first behind the wheel.
Driving Notes:

Toyota i-Road is no less strange in the flesh

Tue, 05 Mar 2013

We've seen plenty of three-wheeled creations in our day, but none quite like the Toyota i-Road Concept. The "personal mobility vehicle" offers seating for two with driver and passenger positioned in a tandem position. While that may sound more like a motorcycle than a car, the closed cockpit means riders don't need a helmet. The design also takes a page from the 2008 Peugeot HyMotion3 Concept with an articulating front suspension that allows the driver to lean through corners thanks to "Active Lean" self-balancing technology. Unlike the funky Pug, however, the i-Road is a fully electric plug-in vehicle.
While there are just five-horsepower on hand from an electric motor, the i-Road should serve up a range of around 30 miles thanks to its lithium-ion battery, and Toyota claims the cells can be topped off in three hours with a "conventional domestic power supply." Sounds majestic. Take in the full press release below.
