I am 52 and look for excuses to drive my FJ
By tom522 on


2011 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Well it is still brand new, so only can say limited, but this is my 8000 mile report, just drove thru a tough winter and this thing was the easiest thing I have ever seen in deep snow. I would go out after a huge storm and people stuck all over and it just seemed weird because it was SO easy. You just cant help getting the feeling of a very well built truck. I feel like a kid in a way, I keep driving down dirt roads looking for a hill to climb over. Its actually pretty quite, unless going highspeed on x-way. You get a FJ Cruiser if you want easy. Easy in the snow, easy on the ice, easy off road, easy around town.

Best Features

easy to clean, while its nice inside, the FJ is not plush in any sense, its kind of rubberized flooring in back, you have carper mats you can attach in places, but you can go in there with 3 inch of mud on your feet and its no big deal, all the seats are treated and all the rest is just made to wipe down, not polish, and still look good. Like the back up camera and USB add on for stereo. and the fold down back seats.This truck might not be for everyone, But if you like a truck that can go about anywhere, dont have to worry about weather or terrain or cleaning and dont plan on hauling grown family around in full time but can if you have to, well than this might work.

Worst Features

More 12 volt outlets for assessories, I have a GPS and 2 phones. Should have 12v jacks in back standard. The limited view does take a couple weeks to learn, well adjusted mirrors work well along with backup camera, I am a wiz with it now. The FJ is what it is, would be curious what a removable top would be like, but then it wouldnt be a FJ. The FJ Cruiser is a very functional 4X4 All Terrain Truck first of all, but can also play very nicely around town, bottom line, its not meant to replace my Cadillac, just the best of both worlds
