The FJ is fantastic for what it is designed for: High ground clearance off-road and deep snow traversing. This is not a CR-V/Rav4Tucson or RX350. You have to give up some on road comfort for the off road abilities and, spec to spec, the FJ puts the Jeep to shame, especially when you consider the poor reliability of a Jeep. This is the perfect Zombie Apocalypse Survival vehicle. Drive it first for a while to see if you can handle the visibility and uniqueness of the cabin. If you can drive a panel van, the FJ is a piece of cake! Add the backup camera and rear sensors and its effect. For everyone? NOPE. This is not a Mall Assault Vehicle but one with a purpose. Drive it and you will see.
Unique styling. Toyota quality. Decent mileage for vehicle type. Great off road, decent on road. FJammer stereo rocks. Lots of mods available. 2010 has 21 more horsepower! Great engine sound, even stock. Kids love the backseat, easy to clean interior. Nice big buttons for use with gloves on!
A little dark inside, how about a sunroof option? Better handles for the rear doors so they can close easier for the backseat occupants. Glove box light would be nice. Blind spot mirrors as standard. Gas Tank larger than 19 gallons. Locking gas door.
