    What year is it? They had problems with cab corner separating from fire wall in early models but should have been recalled or fixed. 92k ain't even broke in yet:) same motor as Tacoma but doesn't get as good as gas mileage. Mine is a 07 with 75 on it haven't had a issue so far.

    I got mine with 85000 on it. The FJ forum will help a lot. The only issues I've read about are torque converter issues the might end up causing transmission work to be done. The main symptom is a shutter/vibration while accelerating and only seems to happen in cooler temperatures. That's the biggest one I've read about. One smaller one is the thermostat going out which causes the engine to stay in warm up mode even after its warmed up. It causes really bad mpgs, but doesn't seem common.
