Bought mine brand new in June of 2007. Just about to hit 58k! Almost traded it in a couple of times but could never commit.

Bought in August of '06. With really weird options, since they were out of them within 3-400 mile radius of Austin at the time. Snatched the first voodoo blue i could find somewhere near Waco Texas. Running strong ever since. Approaching 100K.

Mine turned 13 on April 15th. 230,305 miles! Getting ready to add 285/70/17 BFG KO2's to replace my 6 year old Hankook muds. Still fun to drive for sure.

Yes, 76K miles 2007 2X4 voodo blue. I have had o problems except brake job and new battery. I'm just experiencing the first problem. The rear door can't be unlocked, transmitter or key, at the same time, it shows the rear window open which it is not, which cancels out the rear wiper. I have never stuck this unit with 2 WD because it has a locking differential. Lock it up and it goes just about anywhere. The best part is I'm not hauling around 200lbs of transfer case and front dif. which I'll never use. It is the most comfortable vehicle I've ever owned, it goes good, corners well and with the transmission control you can drive it like a turbo hydro. I'm 6'4" and I have huge headroom. These are very special vehicles, made in their own factory in Japan, paint is baked and you can't duplicate the paint in this country. They just cost too much to make and the price point wasn't making Toyota any money.

Me too. Ordered in Jun 2006, built in Sep 2006, and in my possession on 12 Oct 2006. My Titanium Metallic AT 4x4 turned 181 K miles last week. I've been a continuous Landcruiser owner since May 1978: 1978 FJ40 (1978-1991), 1991 Series 80 (1991-1999), 1999 Series 100 (1999-2008), and 2007 FJ Cruiser (2006-present). The FJ Cruiser is my hands down favorite, then FJ40, then Series 80, and lastly Series 100.

Some clarification is in order: Akio Nishimura, FJ's lead engineer, attended the first FJ Cruiser Summit in Ouray during July 2007. He was asked directly whether the FJ Cruiser was intended to be part of the Landcruiser family? He responded without hesitation that it was. Hence, I stand by my 41 continuous years of Landcruiser ownership.

I did not buy mine new but my dad did about 2 years before I turned 16. I then bought it from him about 4 years ago it now has 184K miles on it and has not had any major issues at all.

Picked up my ordered manual trans black cherry on 6/6/06. I have 231,000 miles and outside of regular maintenance items have only replaced the radiator. It’s been my mountain snow master and I love it.

I still have mine, it's our DD. 153K and other than the battery I've only had to replace the fan clutch. I'm still on the original brakes. I can't believe it. It's been snowing like a big dog here and we're leaving on an 800 mile trip on Monday morning.
