2010 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Let's be realistic for a moment; this is a vehicle designed with a specific type of person in mind. This person will probably fold the back seats down and never unfold them again (or just remove them completely). The FJ Cruiser is a sport utility vehicle, as SUVs were intended to be, designed to access a favorite fishing hole, cart a deer carcass home for dressing, or carry a roof-top-tent to the top of a mountain. It is not the over-grown station wagon that the modern SUV has come to be. The FJ Cruiser has a cult following of outdoor enthusiasts, eccentrics and adventurers who's definition of practicality doesn't involve DVD players, electric folding third rows, and "a car-like ride".

Best Features

It is surprisingly quick and agile for a 4000 lb vehicle and has an uncharacteristically smooth ride for a full-framed truck. The easily cleaned interior is great. I also appreciate that most of the controls can be easily manipulated while wearing heavy gloves. Love the 110VAC plug in the back.

Worst Features

It needs a sunroof option and opening rear-corner vent windows. I also feel that it would benefit from higher placement of the transfer case and E-locker breathers for better fording capability without tedious aftermarket modification. My time is better spent working on suspension upgrades.
