Pros
New BFGoodrich Premier A/S Tires Installed at Costco April 2020
New Rear Hatch Struts Installed May 2020
New Valve Cover Gasket July 2020
Remanufactured Alternator Installed August 2020
New Battery Installed at Costco August 2020

New Heater Core, Radiator and Cooling Hoses installed April 2021
New Blower Motor and Cabin Air Filter installed April 2021
New Front Marker Lights Installed April 2021
New Driver's side door installed September 2021 (hence why one window has tint)
New Driver's side speaker installed September 2021 (other speaker to replace passenger front included)
AC blows cold, heater blows hot
Good MPG (24-30MPG highway)
Compact
Great cargo space when rear seats are folded down (I can fit a 55“ TV in the back without a problem!)
Simple, proven Toyota reliability
1ZZ-FE Engine (used in many other Toyota vehicles from the same era, replacement parts are plentiful)
Spare tire in good shape and included
Two keys included
Cons
Slow coolant leak, you will need to top it up every couple of months
Plastic vanity cover for engine is broken, but I will include it for completeness
Rear passenger tire has a very slow leak, you will need to reinflate it every couple of months - Tire inflator included with sale
All suspension needs to be replaced soon; it is completely worn out
Interior is in poor shape:
Only one floormat for the rear seats are included
Sunroof does not open
There is a possible sealing issue somewhere in the car as moisture can seep in under heavy rain
Hole in the carpet in the driver's footwell
Seats are fairly worn
Transmission makes a humming noise at around 40MPH; shifts fine, but definitely makes a lot of noise
This vehicle is not equipped with ABS
Headlights need polishing
Could probably use a new set of wipers all around
Front bumper is in poor shape, has some cracks and scuffs and broken fasteners, probably could stand to be replaced, but is holding for now
Overall body condition is fair; no major rust, some scratches and minor dings on most body panels
Fog lights do not work
Minor frame damage to the front passenger side due to a previous unreported accident prior to my ownership
Aftermarket Clifford alarm installed, but doesn't appear to do anything; I've never been able to trigger it
Keyless entry is non-functional (likely due to aftermarket alarm)
If you identify as a male under the age of 30 or have a less than spotless driving record, since it is a 2-door, insurance is probably going to be expensive for you!
Summary:

This would be a great first car for someone learning to drive, someone who wants to learn how to do some basic maintenance on their car, food or other last-mile delivery, a commuter car, or a fun 2-door coupe project. It also will work as a small cargo hauler in a pinch with the rear seats folded down and works great in that aspect. I've carried a 55” TV, a stand to hold said TV, dining room chairs, small tables, boxes of computer components… I've primarily used it as my daily for about a year while I saved up for repairs on my other car, and now that I'm downsizing and only get to keep one, I'm opting to let this one go. My initial asking price is $2000 but I am open to offers. Cash is king, checks are OK but I will be going with you to deposit it same day if you decide to buy. I am completely fine with and encourage test drives and will be riding with you. I am fully vaccinated and will remained masked during our entire interaction.

As always, first come first served, vehicle sold as-is without any warranty expressed or implied. Once the title is signed you are completely responsible for any issues that may arise or occur.
