Great SUV, with minor improvements
By beary2 on
2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
FJ styling... there's nothing else like it out there. Ride is pretty good, just a little bumpy, but to be expected. Great power/acceleration. Would like a tan interior option. Black really shows dirt/crumbs. Kids don't have any problem getting in and out of back seat (except for tight parking spaces). Do away with ceiling "speaker exciter", that thing is junk.
All around cool car. Backup sonar is great. Can't beat the styling. Lots of room in engine to get at parts. Oil filter location is great. Side visors nice addition. Haven't had any visibility problems. Windshield does catch lots of bugs though. Like the simplicity of interior, no carpet.
Drop the suicide doors, it really is a pain in tight parking spaces w/kids. Have passenger armrest standard. Speakers are a joke. I never saw a speaker magnet that small before. Seats could be more comfortable. Have tailgate window go down like in 4Runners. Ability to open backseat window
