Re: Possible FJ owner

More information on the FJ I'm looking at . White auto 4x4 with off road package and the alarm and cruise control . 30 k out the door. Is this an amazing deal ?? Should I opt for roof rack and foot bars , or should I get that on the aftermarket side .

Re: Possible FJ owner

Sounds like a pretty good deal...any kind of warranty?

As far as the foot bars and roof rack-it really depends on what you want to do down the road---if you're going to put sliders on later, then opt out. Same with the roof rack- if you're going to be putting a lot up there, then opt out and go for a heavy duty Baja or some other aftermarket.

Good luck and welcome to the party!

Re: Possible FJ owner

Trail Teams Limited auto trans.. bought at the end of 08 has been flawless , wife loves it , it has it's quirks with blind spots , the back seat is bit of a pain in and out of in a parking lot ,it gets Ok fuel milage not great not terrible but then I didn't buy it for milage . I got it for a bomb proof ( not literally)reliable do everything go all over easy clean and maintain vehicle . It has not disappointed in any thing , I challenge you to find something to hate .... That means you have to buy one.
Oops forgot I does have one big problem It's like a drug you can't leave it alone you have to either be driving it or adding to it . Bummer.

Re: Possible FJ owner

It sounds like a decent enough deal. I negotiate a lot for work, so I will get into the back and forth readily. You might be able to get a little more for the money, but its still in an acceptable range. A lot will depend on what you want out of it. Some folks are getting lift kits, roof racks, different wheels, or even DVD players when they deal. That is the dealer installed stuff that they can wrangle locally.

As for my experience with the FJ, I love mine. I don't get to drive it as much, but it was intended for the wife to drive the kids around. My wife is an amazing women that can destroy a vehicle in ways never seen before. She still holds the record for a bent rear stub axle on a Jetta. 3.5 degrees out of alignment. For the unknowing, that part is 1.5" solid steel. She has destroyed a Honda Civic, a Mitsubishi Eclipse, a VW Jetta, and a Scion xB. The FJ has proven to be wife-resistant so far. It has outlived every other vehicle. So, for what it's worth, the FJ has been very stout and reliable. We have driven it all over the southeast. Been into the mountains, down the beaches, and all sorts of stuff. It has even conquered traffic barrels at 75 mph with no damage.

I say go for it.
