Nothing I have seen.I am not trying to justify anything, especially to people I don't know on a message board.
I plan to enjoy it as much as possible. I too plan to put only a few thousand miles on it a year. The only reason I asked about whether it will appreciate in value or not is because people keep telling me they are going up in value since they were discontinued, and I was trying to get a better understanding of how much in demand they are.
Does anyone know what the production numbers for the FJ were for each year worldwide? They have some info in Wikipedia, not sure if those are just US numbers or not.
well since i don't have any idea myself, i decided to ask an expert....
The magic 8 ball.
oh great magic 8 ball, what will the fj cruiser be worth in 10 years?

^They'll be worth squat.
With the growing movement of electric and alternate power our relics will be worth their weight in scrap.
That's interesting because 2007 Wrangler Rubicons are going for the same price as 2007 FJs, and they're just about 10 years old right now.Maybe not collectors items, but
I don't think any Toyota will be similarly priced to a comparable Chrysler product in 10 years.
If you bought an FJ hoping for it to be a collector's item, I think you're going to have a bad time. Prices are so high right now because people have been told they can't buy new ones anymore, and people want what they can't have. The same thing happens when Obama talks about gun control. Everyone runs out and buys guns, prices go up, ammo and accessories are hard to find, then everything goes back down to normal. In 10 years I think the FJs will be priced very similarly to Wranglers of the same model year.
That said, I bought mine to drive it. I'm not going to baby it, or try to keep the miles down in the hopes that it might some day be worth something.
