Owned the FJ for 2 years and 62,000 km without a single mechanical issue to date. Have had the near-vertical windshield replaced after 6 months of ownership as a rock cracked the soft stock windshield. Handles like a champ in the snow. 4.0L engine is smooth and powerful. Has some straight-line tracking issues at highway speeds when there are winds > 30km/h due to the non- aerodynamic design.
Solid handling and secure feeling, tall seating position and performance of the engine. Easy to clean interior (no carpet). Niche vehicle - not for everybody and that's the way I like it!
Rear seat entry in tight parking spots can be tricky.
