So i wanna confess.....i may have a problem....
Okay, so I have to make a little confession. In Recent days, I have had a moment of weekness or two...
So follow along as i tell my story. The other day i was minding my own business driving my xB to work when i saw a lonely little xB sitting in front of a title loan place along the highway. So to express my concern, i called the title loan place and inquired on t he lonely xb. It appeared that it's previous owner took out a title loan on it and then defaulted. None the less they lost her to the title loan company. They said that they were gonna offer it for bid. Which meant that anyone interested could enter a silent bid. After they recieved 3 bids the car would go to the highest bidder. I was like i need to go check it out. So I went down a few days later and checked it out. It looks like the old owner hit the pole at the gas pump and down damaged both the drivers side doors.
Against my better judgment i felt compelled to put in a bid on it. Which i did. Four days later they called me and said i won the bid!
So I scored a 2006 camouflage green xB automatic for $800.00 with a clean title. It has 135,000 miles on it. So now i have four gen 1 xBs in my garage! I know, i know, im up to four now... I think i might be in need of an intervention....
In my defense, i do just happened to have an extra set of doors that are ironically the same color that were just sitting here needing a new home. So i figured that they just needed a car to make use of them. Solved not just one, but two problems today!
It runs good, shifts good in all gears, cruise control is working but the VSC, Trac Off, and Check Engine Lights are all on. So I hooked it up to my OBDII scanner and it is throwing both p0010 and p0012 codes. Pretty sure its just a faulty cam sensor. I just happen to have 3 extra complete engines sitting here in my garage so im pretty sure i have one of those too.
Is there such a thing as too many scions.? This makes us a 5 scion household...
