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


Review

Just got the FJ. I had a Land Cruiser about 10 years ago and regret selling it. Haven't had it in the dirt or snow yet and can't wait to do so. It's great on the road, you forget you're in a serious 4X4. The rear view camera helps with the blind spots when parking. My wife spent her teen years off roading and she is eager to get the FJ dirty. It's a challenge with the doors and our two boys. But the 12 year old isn't complaining as he will take this car over when he is 18. Safe and solid, we will sleep better knowing he will be in the FJ. Now who's got my old Land Cruiser? Can I have it back please? I miss it a little less now that I have this creature.


Best Features

The retro look. Body over frame construct. Rugged build quality. Decent power and ride. Good size for most driving situations.


Worst Features

Four real doors. Sun roof. Convex passenger side mirror. More 12v power points. Fold flat rear seats.

Review

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.

Review

Only have 1000 miles since new but so far this vehicle is great. Quiet, built very strong under vehicle, fully box welded frame, large transfer case, big drive shafts, 2010 has more horsepower and you can feel it. Very comfortable up front seating for all day rides, nothing compares to it. Also 2010 uses reg unleaded.


Best Features

Very rugged, performance, solid, 4 wheel disc brakes stop on a dime.


Worst Features

more colors,white roof or body color roof option,

Review

Does it all - loves the mountain twisties - loves to play in the snow - loves to get dirty - loves the dirty dog. Sure, 40 mpg would be nice - so would a neck massage! It's quirky, it's fun, it's practical and, boy, is it yellow!


Best Features

Practicality, functionality and fun. Roof rack, rock rails, brush guard, all-terrain pkg and trd exhaust all well worth it.


Worst Features

Seat warmers and glove-friendly radio knobs would be nice.

Review

The FJ is fantastic for what it is designed for: High ground clearance off-road and deep snow traversing. This is not a CR-V/Rav4Tucson or RX350. You have to give up some on road comfort for the off road abilities and, spec to spec, the FJ puts the Jeep to shame, especially when you consider the poor reliability of a Jeep. This is the perfect Zombie Apocalypse Survival vehicle. Drive it first for a while to see if you can handle the visibility and uniqueness of the cabin. If you can drive a panel van, the FJ is a piece of cake! Add the backup camera and rear sensors and its effect. For everyone? NOPE. This is not a Mall Assault Vehicle but one with a purpose. Drive it and you will see.


Best Features

Unique styling. Toyota quality. Decent mileage for vehicle type. Great off road, decent on road. FJammer stereo rocks. Lots of mods available. 2010 has 21 more horsepower! Great engine sound, even stock. Kids love the backseat, easy to clean interior. Nice big buttons for use with gloves on!


Worst Features

A little dark inside, how about a sunroof option? Better handles for the rear doors so they can close easier for the backseat occupants. Glove box light would be nice. Blind spot mirrors as standard. Gas Tank larger than 19 gallons. Locking gas door.
