I love this truck ! Has great looks, turns heads everywhere I go. Does well on dirt roads and soaks up the bumps well for a truck its size. Awesome traction on wet roads with stock Bridgestone tires. Never once did I get nervous about getting into an accident. Clutch pedal is firm yet easy to depress, shifter is smooth as silk! I average 16 mpg in stop and go driving and get 21 mpg on long highway trips. Doesn't accelerate like a Mustang GT BUT it's predictable and good enough for highway merging during rush hour. If you like a cool looking truck that gets compliments everywhere you go and won't go out of style tomorrow, get the FJ Cruiser.
The truck's good looks, good highway ride and decent handling. Love the rubber flooring/mats which makes for easy cleanups especially if you have small children! Manual transmission shift smoothly.
Offer options like supercharger on base models, possibly a V8 like the Tundras have. Other than that, a great truck best left the way it is!
