2007 Toyota Tundra SR5 - $17,500  SOLD!
Tundra pickups are top of their class, they are robust, and good looking pickup trucks.
Cosmetics: Clean and basic. This truck is straight forward cosmetically. You'll find the interior simple to navigate and there is a muted elegance in the toned down grey color of the exterior.
Mechanical: With only 72K miles the powerful 5.7 liter 8 cylinder engine is just getting started. This engine is joined to a smooth and rugged 6 speed automatic transmission. All of this added to the simple 2WD system and you get a truck that is young, reliable, and easy to maintain.
Other things to like about this vehicle are longer bed makes it drive smoothly. Maybe its the longer wheel base that changes how it interacts with the road, but it is definitely a pleasure to drive. Plus the driver sits high on the road giving excellent visibility and longer reaction time to traffic situations.
Blemishes: Dent on rear bumper, tailgate, and driver's C pillar.

2000 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport - $3750  SOLD!
Compact and capable machine with a touchscreen upgrade!
Cosmetics: Prototypical Subaru styling and colors! The high quality interior plastics look and feel almost new, the windows are still crystal clear, and the exterior has retained its shine during the two owner life of this vehicle.
Mechanical: One of the best Subaru engines, the 2.2liter engine will last the lifetime of the vehicle without major intervention (ie. head gaskets).

2001 Subaru Forester- $3500 ​​ SOLD!
A superb winter vehicle. Drive confidently on slippery roads, mountain passes, or to the beach all year long, no worries!

Cosmetics: We think that the unique silvery green color goes very nicely with the simplistic and rugged styling of this Forester!  You'll definitely notice the crystal clear windows, the super basic layout of the controls, and how the design format is all about functionality in this car.  

Mechanical: Several crucial parts have been replaced: the head gaskets, the timing belt, water pump, upper and lower radiator hoses, heater core hoses, radiator, and battery have all been replaced. The tires are less than one year old, it has a new windshield, recent brake work done, all gearboxes have new oil, fresh engine oil and filter change. We verified that all the lights work, windows and door locks all work, and the cruise control works.

Other things to like about this vehicle include the high ground clearance, superb all wheel drive system, peppy 2.5L four cylinder engine, Subaru reliability, comfortable cloth seats, and we like the fact that it is a basic, solid, but very functional design. Comes with a trailer hitch for a small trailer and a full sized spare tire.

Blemishes: Some stains and tears on the seats. Right hand steering bellows boot is torn.
