    Unfortunately nobody but you can tell you if a new car is in the cards or not. With the exception of tires and AC, I do my own work. Mostly because I dont trust...

    evap code is not going to cause any kind of driveability issues. IT's just an emissions thing and will do NOTHING but turn on the check engine light.

    Probably just dealership touch-up. It's not uncommon for dealers to have someone come in with used cars, and touch up bumpers, hoods, fenders, etc. to make them look nice again. Covers up a lot of...

    Has it been in an accident, or was the front bumper touched up from bug damage/road chips? Looks like a lot of overspray on the condensor and lines behind the grill. My sequoia was the same way,...

    Funny, years ago I had an old 4runner I brought back from the dead. I think I paid $600 for it. It ran but not well at all. It was only running on 4 of the 6 cylinders due to valve issues, so I...
