So I just bought a 2008 fj with 93,000 miles. Realistically, how long before I start having to replace stuff? What's the most miles you've heard of on an fj?
I just bought my first fj last weekend 3-11-2023 with 220,903 miles. I took it straight to Toyota and had them do a multipoint inspection. There were no service records for the vehicle in the Toyota system. However, I bought it in rural West Virginia and there was no Toyota dealer for about 75 miles. That being the case, they suggested I replace ALL fluids (front and rear differential, transfer case, transmission, brake, power steering, radiator) drive belt, spark plugs (were original), fuel induction service, EFI fuel service, new lifetime battery, 4-wheel alignment, adjusted emergency brake, replaced rear wiper, replaced the clock, tires were low on air. I didn't expect that... 😱
But the oil had recently been changed with synthetic!
In case you are wondering, the Bill (capital "B") was (drum roll)................(wait for it).................... $2,790.00
, they were very gracious and offered 24-month 0% financing. 😬
The frame and body are in excellent shape with very little
rust. I'm hoping to get to at least 300,000 miles. 🤞
