Newbie from Nashville, TN

Hi All,

I've always loved the FJ and have driven an 2002 Lexus since we bought new in 2002... It has been a daily with 186k miles. I've always planned to get an SUV when it was time for an upgrade...Well it's time.

So I'm in the market looking for FJs. My weekend car is a 2009 911 and need to supplement it with a truck.

Looking forward to learning more about the FJ and meeting everyone.

Best,
Huy

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.

Howdy!

I'm a sports car guy. The past 20 years I've owned BMWs, Audis, Lexus, etc... Then about 18 months ago I bought an FJ for my wife. As you may know FJ's are infamous for poor rear vision and this freaked her out so I ended up giving her my convertible and driving the FJ. I was NOT happy at first but... Now I LOVE my FJ! I'm a tall guy, 6'2", and after years of squeezing myself into tight little cars I have all the room in the world. I have amazing vision as for the little snow storm we had last week, forget about it! No problems! I remember on more than one occasion having to park my Lexus in the snow and walk home. Those days are over! Trust me, you'll LOVE a FJ!

Re: Newbie from Nashville, TN

Welcome! I'm in Nashville as well and I actually sell Porsche's at Porsche of Nashville. Do you service your car with us? Love the 997.2 911s. Can't beat DFI motors...no more IMS/RMS.

As you are well aware I'm sure, FJs were discontinued from sale in the U.S. after 2014MY so the already strong resale values have gotten even more strong. They definitely command a premium. If I were you, I would look for as late of model as possible since you keep your cars. Save yourself the labor and time and buy one with the Multi-Information Displays on the dash (3 gauge cluster pod). You will love driving the FJ. As a daily driver/extreme offload vehicle, it's a great vehicle for both purposes.

I actually do service my car there! Was in there a few months ago maybe October. It's a black C4S with HRE wheels. Yea, I've done a few searches but no good grab/deal in the area so I figured like all other cars go to the forums!
