FJ Maintenance/Repair insights

1374 Views 18 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  GrendelBlitz
Hello all,
I am considering replacing my Range Rover Sport with an FJ Cruiser due to the insane costs for both maintenance and repairs. I have always liked the FJ Cruiser so I am seeking insight and advice on your experiences with it and its overall opinions on its dependability.

I realize that all vehicles come with unique issues, but what is owning an FJ Cruiser like on the pocketbook?

Are parts easy to come by for repairs and such?

Many thanks in advance!

One of the reasons I went with an FJ over a Range Rover when I was in the market 2 years ago was the much higher degree of reliability and easiness of doing the work myself with an FJ. One of the things that really struck me when I was doing my research was how much electronics Range Rovers have, which makes it much more difficult to diagnose issues. I wanted a vehicle I could be as self-sufficient with as possible, and the FJ definitely fits that bill. For me, there was the initial expense of buying tools, but there's tons of Toyota parts sites where the prices are good, and now that I've done the initial work to refresh all the little issues my FJ brought with her, I expect it to have a very low cost of maintenance over the rest of its life. Which should more or less match the rest of mine. :)
