This thing is bullet proof. Oil changes and 1 battery change in 9 years is all that has been required. Amazing reliability. Ride is much smoother than one would imagine and overall feeling of safety in it. Feels like a tank but has plenty of power when needed.
Most reliable and fun vehicle I've ever owned
I've owned many vehicles in my life, and the FJ Cruiser has been the most reliable, fun, and off-road capable vehicle amongst them all. Whether, the off-road comes to you: blizzard/snow, rain/floods, or you seek it in forests and trails, the FJ can handle it with ease. The rig is customization ready and the more modifications you do, the more capable the FJ will get. The performance of the FJ blows away rigs that cost 4 or 5 times as much. If you get a chance to buy this hard to find rig, jump on the opportunity, regardless of mileage. It's 4.0L V6, 5-Speed transmission are Toyota's most reliable and is also shared with the 4Runner. The body of the FJ shares a lot of components with the Land Cruiser and is built to last - 100% Japanese made.
Most reliable car I have ever owned and so cool
Six speed manual transmission was a required mechanical aspect and this Toyota delivered what most other SUV’s with automatic transmissions cant. Highly recommended for the family off roader
