2nd for me. Prior owned vehicles:

-92 Nissan Sentra
-03 Toyota Camry Solara
Currently owned
-06 Nissan Frontier 2wd
-07 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4wd

Honestly all of those have been great vehicles and had no major failures. Put 175000 miles on the Frontier and still going strong. Always wanted an FJ so the time was good to finally get one. Happy so far

Third... Had a Sequoia and a Lexus. Now we have a '14 FJ and a '16 Highlander. Plus the Toyota dealership is less than a mile from our house and across the street from the wife's office.

This is my third Toyota, the first 2 being Tacomas. I bought an 03 Taco for 10,000$. Within two months I totaled it and isurance gave me 15,500$ for it!!! So i went out and bought an 06 TRD sr5 with 70k miles for 16,000$ and unfortanetly a year later i also totaled it(the only 2 accidents in my life of 10 years of driving and they happened in the same year:mecry:). Insurance gave me 19,000$ for it. So i decided to go for the FJ with all my bad luck with tacomas,but they hold there value so well i actually got more money then i bought them for! now thats resale value. LOVE TOYOTA

First Toyota out of 12 cars/trucks. No real surprises since I work as an auto tech. I drive and work on toyotas all the time for work, so I had a pretty good idea of what to expect.

First car was a '77 2wd SR5 Dad drove new out of the showroom at Longmont Toyota.

7th car is a 1987 Corolla FX-16. 1600cc, twin cam, 120hp, 7500 rpm redline. Tight 5 speed manual and 4 wheel disks. This thing is a blast to drive, a lot like a 100 mph go kart. And awesome in the snow. Paid $200 for it. It's sitting about to turn 248,000 miles and uses zero oil.



Taylor Park, Colorado

My Dad has a 1995 Tacoma 2wd with 150k and a 2001 4 Runner Limited with 35,000 miles! It is literally only gets driven on Sundays.

When it came time to buy my FJ, I had no problem with it having 86k on the clock. I know it's good for at least 100k more.

The FJ is my third Toyota, I'm not going to list all my vehicles, it would be absurd lol.

But, I had an 83 Truck that returned to the earth from whence it came, and a 94 Tacoma Xtra cab that rotted on me again.

Hopefully my FJ is a little more durable in that aspect lol.

When it comes to Toyotas, the FJ would be my second one but it's my first Toyota truck.
My first Toyota was a 1987 Supra Turbo that I bought with a spun bearing and ended up modifying it quite a bit.

Ordinarily I am pretty anti-Toyota. The appliance aspect of car ownership is fairly lost on me, but the arrival of my second kid forced me to find practical alternatives. The FJ always had a personality, which most toyotas lack IMO. It was a fun vehicle and when I sold it I knew within a few weeks that was a huge mistake. I am now in my second FJ and loving it. Do not intend to sell again.

Oh and I has a beater Lexus es300 for a while and.....zzzzzzzzz.

Here's the list of cars I've owned:

1987 - 1979 Oldsmobile Cutlas Supreme
1989 - 1988 Chevy Camaro Z28
1994 - 1994 Honda Accord
2003 - 1996 Subaru Impreza (wife's old car)
2004 - 2004 Honda Accord
April 2016 - 2007 Silver FJC

My father-in-law decided he wanted a newer FJ so he replaced his 2007 Silver one with a 2012 Silver one....

I basically lucked into a well taken care of FJ with +/-70k on it.
