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.
