I'm looking at diving in and buying a new 2012 FJ and plan on keeping it till the wheels fall off.


My concern is with the automatic transmission in the long term. I've seen a good bit of posts on early and mid FJ's that had to have the transmission replaced due to the torque converter flex lock issues and the dreadded shudder.

Does anyone know if they did make revisions to the transmissions since 2007?

I have an early build 2007 with auto trans. I`ve never had a problem with it. 161,000 miles daily driver. If you do the maintenance you greatly reduce the chance of a problem. :) Fluids need to be changed at regular intervals
