Re: Price on 2007 FJ (NEW). Good Deal?

With it being a dealer-owned '08 model, and having that MUCH mileage for a "new" vehicle, I would be willing to bet it was a dealer demo. Go over that thing HEAD to TOE and make sure no one "test drove" it for the weekend and beat the hell out of it. Pay extra attention to the undercarriage, i.e. front skidplate, suspension arms, frame rails, exhaust system, and lower-most sections of the bumpers. If you find any damage, steer clear.

Re: Price on 2007 FJ (NEW). Good Deal?

dealer demos always concern me. a few years ago i knew someone that was a manager at a VW dealer. He'd get to take home a few different models. I just remember seeing him drive like a total ahole (flooring it and slamming on the brakes). I recently saw a Nissan Titan with a dealer plate and the dood was driving like a total jerk flooring the gas and then slamming on the brakes and then flooring it and slamming on the brakes, you get the pic. They treat them not so well.

Even though they say its "new" it is not. Price can be lower and you should probably do your best in checking that everything is in good/decent order.

I still can't believe that this one Toyo dealer was attempting to sell a 07 w/600 miles at the MSRP - 4k. You could get a 09 Tacoma for the same price. Granted not a TRD Off Rd Pkg but still... who knows how they drove that thing or what it was used for all this time.
