Car Review: 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser
November 10, 2008, 11:04 PM
I purchased this car in Oct 2006. This incredible vehicle has driven the same ever since! I do recommend a Toyota Bug Guard. The windshield is incredibly easy to crack. Stay away from semi-trucks full of sand, they are a guarantee to a cracked windshield! BTW, windshields are $400.00 through SafeLite Glass. I recommend following Toyota's scheduled maintenance plan. For planning purposes, it will cost $60.00 every 5,000 miles, $325.00 every 15,000 miles, and $625.00 every 30,000 miles. I have 66,000 miles on the vehicle and thus far I have met every scheduled maintenance. I just replaced the tires with Bridgestone ATs. Overall, a great vehicle!
Car Review: 1994 Dodge Ram 2500

I have owned this truck since 1994. The first year and a half were rough: 2 transmissions; one in 1995 and the other in 1996. As a result I installed a transmission cooler and it solved the problem. In 2000 I had to replace the front end suspension and re-painted the hood and roof (by the way I live in CA!). I think there may have been a paint flaw with the 94 model. Overall, the Dodge has been a great truck! No oil leaks, it always starts right up (though it does need a little warm up), but I am satisfied.
