I am the proud owner of a 2008 FJ Cruiser—option #2 off road package:
Bilstien shocks, BF Goodrich High wall tires, centrifugal pre-filter, rear differential lock, and of course the standard convenience package. (power this that tints back up senser you know)
paid 25,165 plus lowjack $599 - ext warrenty 5yr/100000ml $1000 plus tax and reg
ended up around 27,650 with out looking it up exactly. A1 toyota
I’ve had it for less than two months my three and a half year old loves it as much as I do. But, you will need to slide the front seat forward to buckle up the car seat properly otherwise it has been no trouble at all. Oh yea the only request my wife had when we decided on the ( best off road grocery getter) fj cruiser was a set of tube steps so she could get in more easily. A small price to pay though it does defeat the purpose of having such great ground clearance.

Thanks for the input. I was planning on the side steps just in case I let my wife drive it.

The days of taking $3 or $4 k off of the price are over, especially on foreign cars. Realistically you'll probably be around 27,500. I'm going to the dealer today to price one (in CT) and I'll let you know how I make out. I think I want thesame options except the roofrack.

We put a deposit on a Toyota a few months ago. I now know I'm not the only one getting the run around.

We have 2 children, ages 2 & 5. The FJ works great with kids. Especially like the easy to clean interior--no carpet! Would recommend the running boards. Those make it much easier for the kids to climb in & out.
Would not be able to fit 3 car seats in the back, but 2 are a good fit w/ room for me in the middle. A little hard to get in & out of in crowded parking lots; the door swing requires more room than a typical car in order to open the rear doors. But our whole family loves this car.

I was buying an FJ with the off road package. Sticker was 28,600 and I had them down to 26,300 with the hitch(375). No roof rack. They are noisy and if you are not going to use it don't waste the $$. I was going back to the showroom to give them a deposit and ended up with a leftover 4 Runner.
#189 of 215 Price quote for 2007 FJ Cruiser
Feb 09, 2008 (5:53 pm)
Hi. I'm looking at a new 2007 FJ Cruiser 4x4 with the convenience package. List is $26,624. I received a quote of $21,900. It sounds like a great deal, but I'm wondering if I can get them down a bit more since it's a 2007??? Any thoughts, comments or advice are greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
