Awesome SUV in EXCEPTIONAL shape! Truly turns head wherever she goes! With bold Mustard Yellow paint
and clean lines, this beauty will definitely be a welcomed addition to your garage, collection or the perfect cure
for your mid-life crisis!
Spring-over axle. Beefier shackles suspension and 35/12.50/ORLT tires gives it approximately 10" of lift. This FJ
is one tall glass of water! Near PERFECT interior with stock front seats and rear jump seats. Truck has roll bar,
luggage rack, working front and rear heater, radio, front disc brakes, power steering, weld wheels and swing away
tire rack with spare tire. Roof is detachable (with some effort) for some topless Summer & Fall journey's.
Engine is the Toyota 2F G cylinder backed up with a 4 speed manual transmission. The truck was restored about 5 to
6 years ago to the best of my knowledge. It is covered in a rather unique metallic yellow paint that glitters in
the sun, which is the same hue as the original Toyota Mustard Yellow #532. My father and I bought the truck 2 years
ago and loved it, however I have since moved to NYC where this truck is not practical, so it is being sold. The
vehicle is currently in Maryland and has been garage kept since purchased. Odometer reads 98k, but unclear if those
are original miles.
The only real flaws in this FJ40 are a few bubbles in the paint at a few seams and very minor dings only noticeable
when viewing up close. She is nearly 40, so let's think about how many dings we have at 40! Fortunately, she's
seen a good surgeon. All around, this FJ40 is an incredibly FUN truck which gets attention at every corner! Would
love to see her go to someone who can enjoy as much as we have!
Truck is currently located in Howard County, Maryland and available to be viewed in person by appointment.
Please, NO TRADES! 100% not looking to trade for any vehicle, motorcycle, raccoon, wizard or acrobatic circus
animal. Only looking for a sale. Live in Manhattan and no matter how sexy your car is, I don't need another set of

If you've noticed that there have been more recalls than usual this year, you may be on to something. According to a report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the US market is on pace to break a record for recalls. In 2013, 22 million cars were recalled. We're only a third of the way through 2014, though, and we've already halved that figure, with 11 million units recalled. That's wild.
Considering the past few months, it shouldn't be a surprise that General Motors is leading the charge, with six million of the 11 million units recalled coming from one of the General's four brands. Between truck recalls, CUV recalls and the ignition switch recall, 2014 hasn't been a great year for GM.
Other recall leaders include Nissan (one million Sentra and Altima sedans), Honda (900,000 Odyssey minivans), Toyota (over one million units in a few recalls), Volkswagen (150,000 Passat sedans), Chrysler (644,000 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs) and most recently, Ford (434,000 units, the bulk of which were early Ford Escape CUVs). So while it's been a bad year for GM so far, its competitors aren't doing too well, either.
Toyota offers many flavors of its refreshed 2015 Camry, but those who choose to lower their operating cost-per-mile, squeeze 500-plus miles out of each tank of fuel or run a very efficient and reliable sedan in their taxi fleets will only be interested in one: the Camry Hybrid.
The exterior of the 2015 Camry Hybrid is nearly indistinguishable from its gasoline-only counterparts, with the same all-new sheetmetal and bumpers. The Hybrid is offered in LE, SE and XLE trims, meaning customers are offered base, sport or luxury configurations, respectively.
While Toyota expended quite a bit of effort resculpting and improving the 2015 Camry Hybrid, one area it didn't touch was the powertrain - it is virtually identical to last year's model (just like the gas version). Under the hood is a 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle four-cylinder gasoline engine (156 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque) and an electric tractive motor (141 horsepower and 199 pound-feet of torque). Combined, and running through Toyota's unique Hybrid Synergy Drive electronic continuously variable transmission, the two produce 200 horsepower (Toyota does not list a combined torque figure, and we've asked for clarification). A 1.6 kilowatt-hour nickel-metal-hydride battery, packaged behind the rear seats, provides energy storage.
Toyota executives say the company's primary focus is on safety. At least for the time being, that means the company won't pursue development of a driverless car.
Speaking at the company's advanced safety seminar in Ypsilanti, MI, Thursday morning, Seigo Kuzumaki, Toyota's deputy chief safety technology officer, said that Toyota envisions a future driving environment that optimizes the best of both humans and computers, not choosing one over the other.
"Toyota's main objective is safety, so it will not be developing a driverless car." - Seigo Kuzumaki
