Pros

Superior quality.  Most capable 4X4 I've owned; although the Jeep TJ was smaller for tighter trails and the Chev S-10 took a lot of abuse and always looked good.  Before I had a bike rack, my full suspension bike (not easy to take front wheel off) could fit in the back with the seats down.

Cons

The 6-speed manual is nice to have, especially in snow and city/trail speeds, but on the highway it's geared too low.  Shifting to 6th at 60km/hr means that highway cruising at 120km/h gets the revs up and sucks the gas.  Premium fuel only.  Rear clamshell doors can be awkward in mall parking spaces.  Stock rack is nice, but would be better if it was fulll length of roof.

Toyota Fj Cruiser Good At Everything — I love this vehicle it has done anything and everything I have asked of it. It is an SUV that is a Truck at heart not a mini van or a family seden.The 4x4 capability is great and it will comfortably tow the same loads as a small V8 half ton truck. Fuel miliage is ok fetching about 500km a tank (72L) on mixed driving. There is no mistaking this vehicle for any other it has a very unique look and draws a lott of attention. I took a chance buying a introductory model as it was possible that I would be running into recalls and problems that had not been seen before. This vehicle has been rock solid and with 30K on it the first year has not been in for anything more than the maintenance schedule.

Pros

Perfect for a couple.  The cargo area with fold down rear seats, covers most needs.

Cons

Since my husband is tall, there is not a lot of room in the back seat for passengers.  Rear passenger needs to wait for front passenger to unbuckle seat belt before opening the rear door.

Much Better Gas Mileage Then A Chevy Silverado. — P4 allows you to know how much room you have backing up. Tinted windows keep the sun down in the back. Front seats recline nicely.

Fj40 Pedigree — Toyota quality, pedigree and entertainment sum up the FJ Cruiser. It's pedigree found in the 1970s FJ 40 Land Cruiser with fresh components from the Tundra brake, Prado frame, 4Runner suspension and the tried and true V6 4L from the Tacoma. Great 4x4 and a ton of fun to drive!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

The best off and on road machine. Superior rides. Handles great. Looks great. Many aftermarket mods available. Better than Wranglers.

Cons

Blind-spot. Buy some blind-spot mirrors and that will take care of that issue. It burns a lot of fuel. But you have to expect that from a big truck.

Best Suv I Have Ever Driven. — I owned BMW X5 before I had my FJ. Love how it looks and performs. Handling wise X5 was better on the road, but it's suspension was stiffer than the FJ. Well for the off-road driving the FJ is GREAT. I owned two Wranglers (Rubicon) and they were good for off-road but the wranglers doesn't come close to both on and off road performance. FJ handles much better. Very very reliable car. You can sit 5 adults comfortably, in-n-out from the back seat is bit challenging. Lots of room in the trunk. Roof rack could be used for other accessories. Very smooth ride. Great resale value. You won't regret on this one.

07 Fj Cruiser — Just got it but everything is great so far. Handles well for an SUV, ride is smooth and less truck like than I expected. Power is impressive as well. A little on the expensive side for the amenities but then again it's the off-road gear and ruggedness that your paying for. I do have to say it's very enjoyable to drive, it just makes you feel cool lol.

Cons

Love It! — ok... where do i start...? Performance: acceleration was suprising for a 3.5 liter V6. braking was excelent.... it could stop on a dime in the middle of an ice storm. it handeled wonderfuly for having such a high center of gravity. Build Quality: It was built amazinging well. i met a guy who had one and he said that when he was having fun off road one day he went off a cliff at about 25 mph and 13 feet below him was the ground. when the FJ hit the ground... he simply just drove home. with the one i had... on Jan 21, '06, there was a bit of snow that had fallen... we were driving up a hill and a man in a ford ranger comes over the hill at a high rate of speed and plows into us because he had lost control due to the snow. when he hit us, his truck split in half and flew in different directions. lol there was almost no damage at all to our car. Appearance: atractive looking car. a good throw back look. the interior is rugged yet comfortable. Cost of Ownership: A bit of a gas guzzeler... low maintenance costs though. Fun Factor: Awesome to drive... really fun off road.

Fj Review — Very good car just a little hard to get a kid in and out of the back seat because of the half doors also it is good because we can put the dogs in the back and not worry about the hair because of the rubber mats and take them out and wash them

Primary Use: Family transportation

Fj Cruiser — I love this car! its just big enough for an suv but not overly huge like a suburban. Gets good gas mileage from a 4.0 L v6 that gets close to 240 hp stock...The things definitely got power but it leaves me wanting more, thankfully there's tons of upgrades available! looks like a tank!!

Fj Maddness — I wanted an SUV and saw one of these pass by me and so i did some research and found out that FJ Cruisers are pretty economical on gas (15 gal tank) and they're meant for off-roading. I got some sort of special edition with leaver and plastic fake metal trim on the inside. I have yet to meet anyone with an interior like mine. I think this is One of the best SUVs to get that it out on the market today.
