i just purchased my new fj yesterday. any ideas on how long you wait before you tow with your vehicle. i know the manual recommends you wait 500 miles before you tow a trailer. with labor day weekend coming up i am wondering how i will get my boat to the lake. has anyone towed a trailer before the 500 miles?

Drive alot before then:) If not, I wound't worry, the FJ will be fine. Make sure you change the oil when you get back.

Between now and Labor Day you should have NO problems putting 500 miles on your FJ. Welcome and Congrats.

Just take it easy...no crazy accelerating or abrupt stops. And maybe don't push it to the max regarding your trailers weight.

Don't forget the safety chains!

I started towing just after 500 miles and I have not had any problems to date. Enjoy the FJ Cruiser.

In reality it should only take 8.5 hours of continuous 60mph driving to go the first 500. Times wasting!!
