FJ was running badly and brought to the dealer in April 2010. The shop stay was 7 days. The outcome was a diagnosis of a faulty fuel pump which was replaced under the powertrain warranty and now the FJ is running perfectly.

Drivers side arm rest on the door cracked/broke and the entire door panel needed to be ordered and replaced. Dealer covered the repair under Toyota's manufacturer warranty. Driver's side seat height adjustment seemed to be malfunctioning. The hydraulic cylinder used for height adjustment (driver's side) would not hold its position (i.e., it kept sinking to a lower position). Installed new door panel to replace cracked arm rest. Installed new hydraulic cylinder for seat height adjuster.
