First time FJ owner
Finally, pulled the trigger on 2010 FJ with 133k miles for $15k.
I don't know where start, but I'm beyond impressed on how the FJ ride on bumpy road and Highway.
Wind noise running around 80mph is not bad at all compare to 2019 WRX that I’ve test drive few weeks ago.
Handling and suspension is pretty close to 2017 Tacoma TRD pro.
Only difference is Tacoma is quieter, smoother and has a bunch of new technology in it.
I couldn’t Imagine how much better FJ is with proper Mod.
Only negative that I can say about my purchase is surface rust thats need some TLC before cold weather hits (perks of living in NE)
This FJ only had 1 previous owner,
The main frame looks solid and been treated.
Most of the rust is located on the back part of the FJ(picture below)
One of the rear break line is pretty close on rotting out (picture below) and the line for power steering might need to be replace soon because of surface rust.
I’ve mention all of that to the dealer and they cut the price down for a little bit.
My mechanic (truck guy with mod bug)
also took a peak of it and he says that its still pretty solid just keep in mind to change all the fluids and keep up with the surface rust before its too late.
Overall Im happy with my purchase and also excited to do most of the maintenance work to keep up with it!
Any advice would be very helpful!
