Our Second FJ

Vehicle

2009 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

We bought our first FJ in May 2009. Four months later, towing our 24 foot travel trailer along Rt 84 in PA the trailer was caught by a gust of wind and we started to fishtail. My husband gently applied the trailer breaks in an effort to get it to stop swinging but it was too far gone. The trailer flipped, and with it went my brand new FJ containing my husband, our two dogs and me. I remember being upside down, then on our side, skidding along the highway, then somehow, back on all 4 tires and stopped. Only one window broke, the passenger side view mirror folded in and broke the passenger side window. Aside from scrapes and bruises, were all shook up and perfectly ok.

Favorite Features

The side curtain airbags keep your face from scraping the highway. The roll cage keeps everyone inside from being crushed or shredded with broken glass. An FJ Cruiser is the only car I feel safe in.

Suggested Improvements

Please let's beg Toyota to continue making the FJ.
