Can confirm. I just paid $27k for a 2010 with 87,000 miles. Compared to 4Runner prices right now, it's not too bad. Definitely a bit harder to see out of then the 4R, but there's a cool factor the 4R can't match, to me at least. The FJ feels more solid than the 4R, if that makes sense. Both great trucks, collect them all.

You can still buy a new one in some countries, too bad it's complicated to import one. Unless you live in Florida, lol.

I'm glad I have mine.

I donít think he was asking for a 1st grade lesson of supply and demand.

I think heís wondering why there is such demand.

My question would be: why does ďeverybody want themĒ? They didnít sell well at all where I lived so I have trouble understanding this used car demand hysteria.

I thought so. Someone else came in to buy it sight unseen while I was signing the paperwork.

It's not just FJs, it's a lot of older cars that aren't available anymore. Clean Honda Elements are going for a premium. E36 BMW M3s, which are straight hot garbage, are going up. Old 911s, old VW busses, basically anything that has a cool factor to it or isn't available anymore is going up in value. I'd argue not just from the current rise in used car prices, but from a general sense of collectability. New cars suck and are too expensive. Some of these older cars suck less (E36 BMWs excluded), and there's only so many that aren't rusty or wrecked to go around.

visibility sucks in the FJ! i test drove one when they were being produced. it felt like driving in a pillbox/bunker. my '07 has glass house visibility compared to that.

People say that, but I haven’t had any trouble adjusting my mirrors or turning my head.

I have 217k miles on my 08 that I bought new.

If you can use mirrors, visibility is perfectly manageable. Best vehicle I've ever owned.
