FJ Maintenance/Repair insights

1377 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!

Parts are definitely easy to come by.
They still use the motor and trans in currently produced vehicles.
Thanks for the quick response, Savagebee! \m/
Great insight and feedback, Virtual-Chris.
Much obliged! \m/
... and I have not had to do anything outside of normal maintenance to the FJ.

Reliability is a night and day difference.
Another point that hits home. \m/
… keep up with the service schedule and I think you'll be surprised at how little fuss it will be.
Again, more of what I need and want to read. Thanks, @milehim5FJ \m/
Great insight, @FJExpat ! \m/
Never spent much time in it as it was mostly in the shop.
That is what I’m afraid of. \m/
Well, fellow FJer's. I am joining the ranks.
Thank you for your insights and advice, I am purchasing an '08 TTSE with relatively lower miles.

I will be on this forum frequently, I am guessing, to seek out more of the much-appreciated knowledge that lives here.

Many thanks again and again. I am excited to break her in.
