Great Vehicle - Beware Toyota Warranty
By Slingerdoo on
2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
City driving is easy, but rear visibility is limited so definitely get the rear park assist. Off-road capability is top notch. Rocks, mud, water crossing - the FJ has pulled through for most. Personal experience has proven that if you take the vehicle off-road, or add after market wheels and/or bumpers, the warranty is voided. So, either buy it for city driving or buy a different vehicle for off-road use if you need a warranty.
The capability, style, and uniqueness of this vehicle put it at the top of my list. Simple engine layout, easy access, and Toyota quality.
Additional power outlet would be nice, the one outlet limits cell phone/iPod charging. More realistic advertising from Toyota that doesn't show off-road capabilities - no dealer in Atlanta will touch an FJ with mud or scrapes on the undercarriage. They get labeled "abused" and void the warranty.
