Re: My 2007 FJ has been the Best Vehicle I have ever Purchased

I love my 07 too! I can't say it's any better in the reliable dept than the other two Toyotas I have owned, but they have all been bombproof, minus one blown trans in my 02 Tacoma at 180,000. If the FJ passes 180k without a major failure, I'll say it's tve best... but my 86 4x4 pickup had 250k with no major issues...

Change the oil and oil filter often, and not necessarily the other fluids very often, and it's good to go for a long, long time until you think you need to change the rest of the fluids just because

How do you miss something this big and Yellow?

I took it in to the dealer at 180,000 for a complete check, flushed all fluids, including transmission, finially the brakes needed changing, at 180,000? Wow! had them replaced witht he factory brake pads.

I agree with you about how can people miss a big yellow truck. I've had more near misses in it than any of my other vehicles combined over the years.

I got my brake pads replaced and the rotors turned at around 155,000 miles. I still had more miles I could have put on it, but I had the time and money when I was getting things checked out in the shop that I just had them do the brakes while it was there. New factory pads too.

I had a few more things fixed than you did, but it was still a good vehicle and I still smiled every time I drove it from Aug of '06 when I bought it until April of '14 when I traded it.

Go ahead, skin it! Skin that smoke wagon and see what happens...

I'll ride in on a sunny day, Sing you a song, steal your heart away Like a cowboy Hang my hat like I'm here for awhile Kick off my boots and drive you wild Like a cowboy Well baby you know I can't stay long You wake up, I'll be gone Until then I'll hold on Like a cowboy.

I would like to thank Toyota for an awsome vehicle. I bought my FJ in 2006 new, its a 2007. I have always serviced it with Toyota, I have over 194,000 miles to date and it has never been in the shop except for a fuse from the power inverter, My wife did hit a deer with it when it was 1 year old, So I put an ARB bummper and winch up front, We got rear ended the next year, totalled the other car, I put a WARN bumper there in case that ever happens again. How do you miss something this big and Yellow? I run 33's on it on my 5th set of tires. Have level lift on front due to the weight of the Bumper. I took it in to the dealer at 180,000 for a complete check, flushed all fluids, including transmission, finially the brakes needed changing, at 180,000? Wow! had them replaced witht he factory brake pads. The battery a Panasonic had only lost 12 cranking amps and is still runnning strong. The paint looks great as the interior, although I had worn a hole in the seat and had that fixed. So everyon thinks this is a town car and has never seen the mud? I have this thing out on some serious TN mud and hills, I live at the end of a wash board 2 1/2 mile dirt road, Snow/Ice no problem. This thing is a tank. I was very concerned buying a first year vehicle, I just knew that it would spend most of its time in the shop, but my wife loved it. I will never part with it, I have owend 2 FJ-40's and many 4x4's over my life time. This thing brings a smile to my face everytime I drive it. Oh yeah could have had better Vis out the Back, rear seat doors not family friendly, but who cares, This has never let me down and if it blows up today, I wuld put a new engine in it. Hopeing for a million miles, not afraid to drive it anywhere. Thank you for making a vehicle I'm proud to own.
one of the best testimonials I've read on here .... says it all ...

I bought my '07 new in 2006. Just turned 100,000 miles yesterday. It is good to hear it's just barely broken in.

D,
2X, right there with you!
The smile factor is really high on these FJ's!
Everyone I know who has one echoes this sentiment!
Sorry Toyota decided to stop making them; Glad that I have mine!!
These things are truly going to be cult vehicles- they probably already are !!…..gm
