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.

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.

I bought mine from a private seller, it had 15k on it. He bought it for a little over 24k, but probably had about 40k in it after installing after-market stereo equipment, TRD exhaust, struts, shocks and brakes, cold air intake, and rock rails. He wanted to sell it before the end of the year, and had just bought a 335 twin turbo bmw. So I got it for a little under 24k. All I can say, is I had the luck of the Irish going for me, when we went looking.

Any recent buying experience buying FJ in Texas?

How about anywhere, so we can get a sense of the market at this time. The market is much different than a few months ago. I talked to one internet sales guy in PHX and was quoted $500.00 below invoice on a 4WD manual w/ convenience package. Plus a $369.00 infamous dealer prep charge! AAARGH!! on talk like a pirate day.

Hi, this may be helpful... I just bought the limited edition and got several thousand dollars off sticker. I live a bit North of Los Angeles in Ventura County and there is lots of stock out here in colors and package configurations. The TT I got is the only one I've seen out here on a lot though. Good luck--I LOVE my FJ!, and hope you find what you want.
