My Reality Checked
I went today and looked at my 3rd FJ, and I've decided to pass for now. I've driven both the MT and the AT. Part of it is the overall styling, a little too much "look at me" factor, plus I'm starting to wane on the design. I'm a little concerned that in 3-4 years, its going to look very dated.
Pricing was also a big factor for me, everything coming in for the next 2-3 months seems to be fully loaded, and coming in around 32k. For 5k more, I can be in a Sequoia, with leather, sunroof, and usable seating for 8. For what I need the vehicle for (driving on the beaches of the Outer Banks, and taking the logging road to the cabin in WV), the Sequoia is just as capable, and a heck of a lot more comfortable.
Ive got the Def. 110 if I want to go play in the rough stuff, so for now, I'm going to pass, let the demand slow down, and revist the whole FJ thing in the Fall.
