I really do think "suprising value" means "competetive". With what you ask? The Nissan Xterra of course. The 6 cylinder Xterra was the bulleye for Toyota when they had the FJ in the development stage. Remember, the FJ will come standard with low cost "Element" style rubber flooring, cheap black steel wheels, and uses an existing Toyota frame, engine, tranny, differential, and transfer case. The development costs were in the new FJ body and meeting all current safety standards, mainly side impacts (no B pillar). I do think the 2WD base FJC will be priced at $21,995, or about $1500.00 above the 2WD Nissan Xterra. We should find out officially within the next 3-4 weeks.marketable said:Checked out a Hummer dealership today and an H3, the way I want it, would cost 38-40K!!!! If a fully loaded FJ automatic is any higher than 30K, it's Xterra time. PLEASE TOYOTA, please keep the price down. I'm your young, adventurous, male buyer with an average income. Let me have my freedom.
Percy said:cheazhd - beat a price out of somebody at OJAI this weekend. If they are going to be over 30K I am jumping ship. I won't pay that for anything. There isn't $30K worth of metal and plastic combined on these things. I'd sooner call the boys at ICON and get an original FJ40 at least resale on that badboy would be worth the investment.
Also, could you take some pictures of the rear wrap-around windows from the inside? I can't tell if they are useful or not. And maybe a pic of the rear-seats folded down?cheazhd said:You got it.
Hello, My name is fireice. I am lost and do not know where I am posting. Is this the forum on world oil prices? Good, let me spew some non-sense that doesn't correspond to anything on this thread or any other in this forum. Do I have everyone confused? Then job well done. Now let me go back in my dungeon before someone notices I was allowed to use the internet without adult supervision.Forget the gas price argument. Oil is under $50 a barrel and the oil companies have made their billion dollars profit that should hold them for some time.
just remember you get what you pay for, doc. when your shiny new libo falls apart in 2 years and you get a trade in of like $4000 you will wonder what you were thinking...DocAltie said:I found a 2004 Jeep Liberty Renegade today with 12K miles for $18.5K.
I think that is the way to go.
