I am surprised these are not more popular. I traded in my 2005 4Runner and like the FJ better so far. The lack of gas mileage in my opinion is overrated...it's not too bad at around 19-20 mpg for me. The back seat room is decent and the blind spot isn't THAT big of a deal too me.
The exterior throw-back look, great radio and the almost vertical wide windshield. The 3 windshield wipers are definitely unique. Drives and handles great. The roof rack looks cool.
I think they should have made the back less rounded and more like a box. Similar to the old FJ 40. It would also be interesting to see a new FJ with a removeable top like the old FJ 40's as well. The major complaint is the cost. With any added features you are looking at around 30,000.
