2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


I have a 2007 FJ 4x4 with all the bells-and whistles; although I have had no mechanical difficulties, I have to say that it is not without its problems.
Its paint chips if the wind blows, it’s all over the road with wind over 25 mph, has dangerous blind spots, too wide for most off road situations, weak tie rods, front windows break easily due to shape/angel e, frames on some are weak and buckle, some have weak rear differential, terrible transmission, poorly designed for water usage for a 4x4, (short rods in motor so if you make a mistake in the water you will have to replace the motor), poor gas mileage, engine wines over 40 mph, even with change of tires it’s squarely on slick surfaces (

Best Features

4x4 and out side looks

Worst Features

blind spots, transmission, side sun-visors, scuba on front, rear differential and trans and brake system.

I think you should have purchased a Rolls Royce, I for one believe this is the best 4x4 on the market today,(for the price).
