190000 km is just getting broken in. Your FJ should be good for at least 500,000 km.

Love the FJ and sorry they're still not making them! But thinking about switching to a slightly newer one 2010 to 2014 eventually that requires regular rather than premium fuel.

They do keep their value, I traded my 2012 in on a 2015 Subaru Forrester and got cash back.

Mine is a 2010 and it takes regular. It was only the first year or two that they required premium, according to one of the salesguys I talked to about it a year or so ago.

Edgewater Bar, Derby Reach, Langley BC

This was our back-window view for two nights (Wed and Thurs).
Short little getaway. Nice to watch the fishing and tugboats on our working Fraser River. Also trains pass by on the other side of the river (freight trains and commuter trains). Freight trains keep passing by throughout the night. Makes for interupted sleep.

Great weather. Went for beer and onion rings in Fort Langley and emailed pictures to friends at my old work
