Re: High mileage should I buy?
While Toyota's, including FJ's have a reputation for reliability and longevity, never ASSUME! Get both a Car Fax and AutoChek report, as one often picks up something the other does not. Get VIN and take to any Toyota/Lexus dealer and run both reports, one showing main. and other showing warranty and recalls performed. Most have theirs serviced at dealers, at least while in warranty. If individual, service records are gold! Not only have services done; but on time, considering time and/or mileage, especially the 30k,60k, 90k,etc
If you want vehicle after doing this and have agreed upon price, make deal with owner, if if dealer, to take it to a Toyota dealer, other than one who may own this vehicle and have comprehensive check that would be done before "certified pre-owned"! Due to mileage, this one would not qualify; but this detailed check would be invaluable to determine the true condition of vehicle and if any major repairs are
necessary, have cost reduced by that amount. FYI, you select Toyota dealer for inspection and pay for it yourself, so dealer is working for you, not seller and have report come to you!
