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


I've driven the 2009 Jeep & xterra both 6mt and neither compare to my fj 6mt; because of the full-time 4x4 it accelerates & handles just like a Forester xti. In heavy and deep snow 8-12" it's amazing, no need to even touch the transfer shifter. Vsc and traction control are an excellent compliment to the full-time system. I love the waterproof interior. I'm 5,11 & often have my 6,2 and 6,4 friends seated behind me comfortably, though not for 3 people. Under 60 mph and I get 22 mpg, over 65 and it's about 16- 17 mpg highway. In my opinion the 6mt full 4x4 make it worth it's awkward looks, if you're thinking 5 at your better off with an xterra same difference more practical unless you like fj's looks

Best Features

Full-Time four wheel drive Fast as my brothers '05 (automatic) Acura TL Off road champ off the lot, fun all around on road and off road. Good gas mileage for what it is. Thank goodness it came with a manual transmission. Thanks for the perfect Green, not quite army its like an British Racing GR

Worst Features

More DC outlets(at least 2) Fold flat back seats both directions (at least fully flat in one so I can nap) Stronger clutch Bring back the cable throttle(or eliminate that slight delay) Full time on all trannies (so that all Fj's can have amazing on-road handling) Allow back door open from inside
