Freak of nature

Bought mine in 2007 so its about 16yrs old. I said about 10yrs ago that i would buy a new car when it dies…we are at 375k miles and still going.


My Second FJ

After 10 years with my 2007 FJ in Voodoo blue, I decided to finally trade it in for a 2014 FJ Ultimate Edition this past week. I do not regret it one bit. Things I love about the Fj in general; - Incredible resale value (my 2007 was worth about as much after 10 years of owning) - with its 4WD, it turns a bad winter storm into a playground - reliability - unique and classic design - Its as long as a civic and wide as a corvette ******* 2007 Convenience Package 2 vs 2014 TTUE What are the biggest differences to me; - Heritage Blue paint with black accents + white grill - rearview camera - new rearview mirror with homelink - more sun visors - better sound system - different engine with more horsepower and takes regular gas - a bit higher since the TTUE has a raised front end compared to other models - steering is more compliant, almost like its steering radius has been shortened - Rarity - TTUE is only 1 of 2,500 sold I would recommend any model year of the FJ to anyone who is thinking about it.


Bought last 2014 new FJ in Atlanta area. Panicked.

Love my 2014 FJ! Observed them on the road like one of Pavlov's dogs. Panicked in January 2015 when I couldn't find one at my local car dealer. Called around Atlanta and found my desired 2014 sand color, 4WD, roof rack, tire cover and bought it on the spot. Last one this North Atlanta dealership had. Whew.
