Well, so far I am impressed with my purchase. I purchased the FJ about 2 1/2 weeks ago and it is running great. The fuel economy isn't the best, but it isn't the worst. I've been getting about 20.5 on the highway and 18 in the city. Which to me isn't too bad, in my 99 S10 truck I received 20/16. I don't have the 4WD, didn't need it. I like the FJ because of its look and comfort. Yes, it is hard to get in the back, but I'm not driving other people around all of the time. So far, great experience and I love the FJ!
I like the back up sensor, the head room is awesome, and the overall look of the car is cool.
Obviously the view. I put on the add-on mirror things and it has helped. I personally don't use the mirrors that often because I always look over my shoulder.
