Welcome to AutoMotoTube!!!
On my channel you will find videos of cars, motorcycles, motorboats, yachts, motor homes and everything that moves on wheels or in the water. In most of my short videos (2-5min), I take a look at the exterior design and interior arrangements of the vehicle, so you can receive a general idea and appreciation of a certain brand or model.
My coverage is from Auto, Moto and Boat shows in North America and Europe. I visit different shows: Big like New York International Auto Show or Paris Mondial de L'Automobile, to small regional Classic Car, RV and Boat Shows. I have thousands of High Definition videos of different types of vehicles, everything from new, classic, vintage, old cars, hot rods, motorbikes, recreational vehicles, motor boats, yachts, to airplanes, bicycles, and even tractors :-)
All my videos are organized in playlists. To find a video of a certain model in my channel, just write the brand and model name in the search bar above, or have a look in my playlist.
I really appreciate all your comments and critics - they help a lot, in building one of the most diversified Auto & Vehicles Channel on YouTube!!!

Test Driving a stock 4 Runner for the Baja 1000 offroad race
Could automotive engineers successfully drive a stock vehicle in the intimidating offroad race, The Baja 1000 and survive? Could the winningest driver of that race coach a team of non-pros driving a factory stock Toyota 4 runner? This is the shakedown day to find out.
Jeep Rubicon and Toyota FJ Cruiser Off-Road in Hawaii
We witnessed first hand the capabilities of both vehicles on the trails. I'm personally a Toyota guy, having owned several Toyota 4x4s, an FJ and now a Tacoma. They aren't evenly matched because the Jeeps articulation and flexibility with the solid front axle, shorter wheel base and being lighter weight. Driver experience, error and patience were also contributing factors in how each vehicle performed.
We didn't create this video to make one seam better than the other. Ohana Trails is a Jeep Club here that we were filming and by chance, a group of FJ Cruiser owners were convoying with them. Unfortunately, we had more video of the Jeeps over the FJ's.
All in all it was an epic day up in the mountains at Peacock Flats on Oahu looking over the North Pacific.

87 Jeep Cherokee, 06 Toyota Forerunner, and 03 Jeep Wrangler tackle a hill in Winchester, VA that seems really wimpy in video, but either way we had a great time!
2004 Toyota 4Runner Transmission Fluid and Filter Change (Part 1) -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
Discussion about this video: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/component/kunena/18-The-EricTheCarGuy-Video-Forum/39378-2004-Toyota-4Runner-Transmission-FluidFilter?Itemid=0#39378
To be honest if I were to do this job again I would just change the fluid and leave the filter alone. It's much less of a headache and you won't have to worry about the Exhaust which would be the most challenging part in my opinion. Aside from that it's not likely a filter change will have any real benefit since it's a closed system. In addition there is some speculation as to what the service interval actually is for the transmission fluid and filter is. Lastly be sure that you have some sort of pump to get the fluid into the transmission before you get started because as I show in the video there is no dip stick for this transmission that you can fill through. You also need to be sure to use the proper fluid, I've got my fingers crossed that the MaxLife that I used will hold up fine, so far it's been about 2 months since I shot this video and it seems to be fine. In all it's not a bad job there are just specific procedures that need to be followed to be successful with it.

4Runner 4Ever: 2010 Toyota 4Runner Trail Grade Full Test
2010 Toyota 4Runner Trail Grade Full Test:
Climbing up the near-vertical dirt trail in the all-new 2010 Toyota 4Runner Trail Grade seems pretty easy, at least until we get to the hill-climb's crest. The trail is actually too steep to walk up and the front tire on the driver side starts losing traction and the front end begins to slide off the trail toward a drop-off that borders each side of the incline.
After stopping the SUV on the hill's face (and taking a few deep breaths), we engage the push-button Crawl Control on its most aggressive setting, grab on tight to the steering wheel and take our foot completely off the brake. This allows the Crawl Control to modulate throttle and traction control at each wheel to maximize grip up the hill at a slow and controlled pace, allowing us to just focus on steering away from the cliff's edge.
A few short moments later, we crest the trail's lip with ease.
2012 Toyota 4Runner Limited
Rugged Toyota 4Runner Offers New Audio Systems for 2012; Toyota Entune™ Services Available
• New Audio and Connectivity Features
• Standard 270 horsepower V6
• Two- or Three-Row Versatility
• Trail Model Offers Ultimate Off-Roading
The Toyota 4Runner, the fifth generation of this rugged, full-capability SUV, enters the 2012 model year with major audio and connectivity upgrades and available new automatic running boards. A keystone in the Toyota SUV lineup for 27 years, the 4Runner was named "Most Dependable Midsize Crossover/SUV" by J.D. Power & Associates in 2011.
For 2012, the 4Runner SR5 and Limited grades offer the convenience of newly available automatic running boards. The 4Runner SR5 and Trail models come with standard SiriusXM™ Satellite Radio capability with a 90-day trial subscription included, USB port with iPod® connectivity and hands-free phone capability and music streaming via Bluetooth® wireless technology.
Standard for the Limited grade, and optional for all other 4Runner models, a new display-type audio system incorporates today's most in-demand connectivity features. Those offered are navigation, Toyota Entune™ services, XM Satellite Radio (with 90-day trial subscription), HD Radio with iTunes® tagging and text/e-mail-to-speech. The Toyota Entune system is a collection of popular mobile applications and data services, with three years of complimentary access. Once the smart phone is connected to the vehicle using Bluetooth wireless technology or a USB cable, Entune's features are operated using the vehicle's controls or, for some services, by voice recognition. Entune offers mobile apps for Bing™, iHeartRadio, MovieTickets.com, OpenTable®, and Pandora®. Entune data services include a fuel price guide, sports scores, stocks, traffic and weather.
The 4Runner combines rugged body-on-frame construction with suspension technology that yields ride comfort more often associated with car-based platforms. The 2012 4Runner is available in a variety of configurations and in three models: a well-equipped SR5, top-of-the-line Limited, plus a Trail grade for maximum off-road capability. Optional third-row seats allow for up to seven-person capacity.
Drivetrain configurations include rear wheel 4x2, part-time 4x4 and full-time multi-mode 4x4 with a locking center differential. All models are equipped with a 4.0-liter 270-horsepower V6 teamed to a five-speed ECT-i automatic transmission.
Performance and Efficiency
The 4Runner 4.0-liter V6 generates 270 horsepower and 278 lb.-ft. of torque. Dual independent Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (VVT-i) optimizes torque across the engine's operating range. Fuel economy ratings rival some car-based SUV-type vehicles at 17 mpg city and 23 mpg highway for 4x2 models (22 mpg highway for 4x4). Maximum towing capacity is 5,000 pounds, with 4Runner's standard integrated tow hitch receiver and wiring harness.
Handling and Ride
A double-wishbone independent front suspension, combined with a variable-flow rack and pinion steering, help give the 4Runner precise control on demanding roads. Coil springs over gas shocks are used at all four wheels for a comfortable ride and controlled handling. The four-link rear suspension minimizes axle hop and assures a smooth ride for rear seat passengers.
The Limited grade comes standard with an X-REAS suspension system that further improves performance, comfort and control. X-REAS automatically adjusts the damping force of shocks when driving over bumpy surfaces, or when cornering. The system uses a center control absorber to cross-link shocks on opposite corners of the vehicle, substantially reducing pitch and yaw by offsetting opposing inputs. With X-REAS the 4Runner corners flatter, smoother, and handles choppy pavement more easily.
4x4 Capability Designed-In
The 4Runner SR5 and Trail 4x4 models have a two-speed part-time four-wheel-drive system with neutral position. The 4Runner Limited is equipped with a full-time, four-wheel-drive system with a locking center differential and a three-mode, center console-mounted switch. The A-TRAC traction control system is standard equipment on all 4x4 models. The system can distribute driving force to any one wheel in contact with the ground, making terrain irregularities and slippery patches transparent to the driver. An electronic-locking rear differential is standard on the Trail grade.
