    Extremely high repair bill on 99 LX470. Does this look reasonable at all?

    Brought my 1999 LX470 into the dealership for what I thought would be minor to moderate repairs. I had moderate shake in the engine when stopped, some overheating issues when climbing high elevation, and clunky steering. The bill ended up being $9000 for a multitude of issues. I brought it in...

    So I got a sweet 84 Fj-60 last Summer. Instantly fell in love and she drove great for a year with very minor problems.

    I recently acquired a 1978 BJ40 with a hundred minor issues. I’ve been sorting them out slowly. The inner handle of the right rear door was broken.
