Yikes! That sucks. About a month ago I read that about forty FJs got hail damaged somewhere in the midwest.

When I was 15, I took driver's ed from my high school. We used to go out in the driver's ed car with 4 teenagers and 1 instructor. I was in the back seat and this girl was driving when she rear-ended somebody at a traffic light. I always thought that was the worst accident ever (even though it wasn't very bed) -- wrecking the driver's ed car during the class!

But wrecking the car you take out for a test drive? Yikes. I can just imagine the negotiations once you arrive back at the dealership. "Yeah, I want to buy an FJ Cruiser. In yellow. Just not the one we test drove -- it's dented."

That's funny. I drive by Burt everyday on the way to work.. I figured someone bought the yellow one out front. I didn't think it'd be in the back wrecked

Word on the street is, a garbage truck ran into them. Body shop can't fix it 'cuz there are no 'specs' from Toyota to go by so they *might* have to total it. Told 'em to give Oleg a call, he can fix any thing, then put my name 1st on the list to buy it when he's done
