Not Your Average SUV

2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Review
If you plan to go off-roading opt for the All Terrain Pkg. It comes w/ very nice 16" wheels (diff look from the 17"), great shocks, locking diff, A- trac, pre-cleaner & multi-info display. I ordered the TRD exhaust which I think is a plus, cool ellipse tip and sound. It came with blk running boards which will not work as rock rails, but will save you from car- level door dings. Ride quality is great for a 4x4. We have gone on fun adventures and seen things that would have required some serious hiking. With the right mind-set the FJ will make a great primary vehicle. As a 2nd vehicle to our German sedan we could not be happier. Hard to imagine the sedan is now a 2nd choice when driving to work!
Favorite Features
Classic looks, stands out from the cookie cutter SUVs. Its a Toyota with the heritage of the original Land Cruiser. Seats with water resist fabric. Skip the carpet and get the serious rubber mats (you will not be disappointed). The feeling I get in the middle of no-where in total comfort.
Suggested Improvements
The down side is the FJs windshield (part of that classic look), bug splatter and repaired rock chips can be lived with but cracks will lead to an expensive $1,200 windshield replacement. The thin aluminum roof can be damaged during removal / installation per the pros. so choose top-tier service.
