This FJ Cruiser is in very good running and driving condition with minor issues of note. There were no obvious signs of previous damage or repairs from accidents or flood. There are minor misc scratches around the vehicle. Normal for mileage and most too small to see in pics. There is light wear to the seats. Normal for mileage. All interior accessories and functions are operating as designed. The interior trim shows normal wear consistent with age and mileage. The wheels are in good condition with no notable damage and the tires are wearing evenly with good tread depth remaining. I found no issues on the test drive. The engine had plenty of power and there were no misfires or excessive smoking. The transmission shifted as designed with no harsh engagement or slipping. The steering was responsive and the suspension was firm and the vehicle handled well. There were no abnormal vibrations or odd noises. The brakes were firm with no pulsation felt. There were no leaks found to the underside of the vehicle. I hooked up my Scan Tool to the computer system and found no current or pending codes. All of the live data looked good with no issues reported. Overall a decent vehicle. See below and pictures for more info.
