    Default How many FJ Owners / How many problems (or dislikes?)

    Simlar to the T6 thread (but petrol, Toyota, one extra cylinder and no turbos...........oh,..... and 200kw!)
    It would be interesting to see how many FJ's there are on the forum?(add name colour and mileage) and what problems/niggles/dislikes about your FJ.

    For me - no issues, best vehicle I have owned, only niggle is the centre wiper that ends up in the line of sight, and the windscreen chips easily. Fuel consumption 13.2 - 13.7L/100kms (Drive mostly slowly but put foot if need be!! )

    Stem saam met die temp, wat betref die fuel consumption, dit gaan mens miskien dalk net depressief maak.

    Dirtshark, Are you going to put together a data base of Forum FJ owners? Perhaps keep the first post updated with details? Who knows, that Summit idea might just materialize one day.

    Sandstorm, 25 000 km, had to replace (upgrade) the propshaft. The cruise control is rubbish and so that dunflops tyres they came out with, and that picture that come up in rear view mirror is a waste of money..

    For the rest I enjoy driving it. I fitted a 90l aux tank to drive at least a week between fill-ups.

    Was the propshaft replaced by Toyota at no charge? Under warranty?

    I had a black / white roof. Sold with 1400km (bought just for the hell of it).
    Smoothest ride ever.
    Only the rear doors posed an issue...

    Miss it sorely...

    Wit FJ , 47 000 km , hy is witwarm . Eienskappe waarvan ek minder hou :
    1. Spoedkontrole oneffektief !.
    2. Mis my buite temperatuur meter .
    3. Voorste venster baie blootgestel aan klippe , ek gaan nou my 2 de een vervang .
    4. Enjin kon doen met meer torque .
    5. Lugfilter sisteem ondoeltreffend .

    Waarvan ek BAIE hou :
    1. Ry soos 'n droom , teerpad , grondpad , enige pad .
    2. Hanteer soos 'n droom .
    3. Ratkas .

    Sy naam is nie verniet "Toktokkie" nie .

    Bastian is dit 'n groot storie om die voorruit te vervang? Op die Amerikaanse forums praat hulle van ouens wat die werk doen moet spesifiek hulle storie op die FJ ken anders beskadig hulle daardie "kappie" wat bo die ruit sit?

    Ek is nie 'n groot tegniese ou nie en het ook maar 2 linkerduime so dalk het ek die kat aan die gat beet Myne het ook al 'n klip of 2 gevat maar gelukkig net speldekop grootte merkies.

    Ja dit is n groot storie om die FJ se voorvenster te vervang. Volgens PG Auto Glass in PE moet hulle eers parte van Toyota bestel voordat hulle dit vervang. Dit is ook een van die duurste ruite om te vervang as dit 100% reg gedoen word.
