It's an FJ thing....
By tbrock60 on
Vehicle
2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 6M)
Review
It's obvious that most "professional" automotive journalists don't get the FJ and don't understnd it's purpose. It isn't a AWD cross over, it is a very capable Off Road Vehicle. A properly equipped FJ is unequaled in off road capability, comfort and reliability. The often complained about "limited visibility" is easily remedied by adjusting your mirrors properly. Gas Mileage? Do you really buy an off road vehicle for gas mileage? I'm getting between 23 and 24 on the highway...much better than my Dodge Ram! All in all, you either understand the purpose of the FJ and love it or you don't get it and the vehicle just confuses you.
Favorite Features
Electrically locking rear differential; ATRAC for front traction control. Clutch start disable (allows you to start it in gear with the clutch out, very handy off road). Locking center differential. Rear view camera comes in handy on the trail to see those big rocks down low! Ability to disable traction control (completely disabled). Responsive traction control that actually helps in icy conditions. Comfortable for long trips with the family (968 miles in one day to the parents for Christmas) and fantastic off road performance.
Suggested Improvements
Provision or option for a winch mount. Functional skid plates. Better/more inside storage options (a locking console?) Provision for electric trailer brakes. Option for more aggressive tires (comes with "all season" tires)
