2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


The paint on the outside of the FJ scratches way to easily. The plastic interior scratches even easier. For an off road vehicle, in which mine is not, just cheap and poorly designed. The premium gas @2.98 a gal. What ! 15 miles in the city and 20 on hwy. Rides nice and has good pick-up when you need it, just shouldn't have to run premium gas and give a second thought to the paint! Now the windshield, cracks WAY too easily. Bad up-right design as the hummer, rocks don't skip off, again an off road vehicle . What ! Had 5, count em, 5 small dings (dime size cracks/spots) fixed b4 the last one gave way to a 16" crack! Shop around, maybe buy American, I know. I know., but it's true

Best Features

Good pick-up, pulls my boat w/out a problem

Worst Features

Gas mileage The windshield design and quality again cheap! exterior paint cheaply done interior plastic scratches like plastic side mirrors block views in turns, should stick out to the side and not so high blind spots, takes a getting use to.

I've used 87 Octane in my 2008 FJ for 130,000 miles with no performance issues whatsover ! Yes the flat windshield gets its share of dings, but insurance either repaired or replaced without an issue , so whats the issue ?
