Solid Vehicle — Awesome, very solid and reliable vehicle. I have never had any problems at all with it. I have nothing negative at all to say about it. Durable interior with very utilitarian instruments and features. I would recommend it to anyone.

Pros

Super fun to drive on backroads and off roads. Very durable, sturdy & stable. Big engine power, great snow vehicle, surf & camping vehicle.

Cons

A little bulky, large side mirrors create some blind spots, windshield catches a lot of rocks.

Super Fab Fun Sport Vehicle — Really enjoyable for driving on dirt roads. Love the skid auto-tracking feature for knowing when to shift into 4x4. The dashboard gauges and roomy cabin make for a high quality sport driving vehicle. Little large and cumbersome for city driving and long distance treks.

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

Pros

It is a monster when it comes to the off road. Yet, it is comfortable like a semi luxury truck. It goes where only the toughest off road SUV's go. On the road, it has great acceleration. It is better than some sport cars. From 0 to 60 MPH, it accelerates somewhere between 6.9 and 7.1 secongs.

Cons

It is a gas guzzler. The way I drive, it gives me an average of 13.8 MPG. other people manage to get about 17 to 18 MPG. However, they are not enjoying the acceleration and off road performance to get that.

Great Off Road Suv. — I enjoy this car when I ram through a mud pit, I cross through near 2 feet of water, going up 30 or more degree inclines. It can climb the toughest terrain. This is more a toy than a car. Like any other true off road vehicle, it is very inefficient when it comes to gas consumption. I would not buy it to go to the supermarket and the shopping mall. If your concern is rain and snow, buy a Subaru. It is not worth the gas if all you want is a city car. The FJ is beautiful. You feel great driving it and have fun on and off the road. However, you will not have so much fun visiting the Gas station and spending over $50 twice a week if you drive everyday. I am actually contemplating buying a second car. With the standard tires, there is not too much noise road. There is wind noise after 60. The fact is that if you want a luxury SUV, you should not buy a real off road SUV. There are many on road SUV's. However, if you like adventure and going anywhere you desire, get a FJ Cruiser. It will amaze you.

Fj Cruiser. Love It. — I looked for a bunch of cars. Toyota FJ Cruiser covered all my needs. Rejected cars were: 1. Mazda CX9 - too much look of a mom-mobile. 2. MDX - might be too posh to throw in my dogs. Also looks like mom-mobile. 3. BMW X5 - Loved it. Until I read about reliability which is awful. 4. F150 - More utility than I use regularly. 5. Highlander - small, too nice for my dogs. 6. 4Runner - Great car. thirsty though in 4x4. Might be bigger than need.

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!

Pros

Feel, torque, safety, looks, cargo, durability, dependability.

Cons

Gas mileage. Reconsider if you're thinking of this as a daily vehicle. Great for loading gear (I used it for video production lighting and camera gear).

Feel Safe In Any Part Of Town, Any Type Of Weather Or Time Of Day. — Love this vehicle's feel, torque/ highway acceleration, ease of driving around town for relatively small size and large cargo space. Don't like that gas mileage is closer to 15 mpg than 17 or 21. TRD trim gives you comfort in any terrain, but also feels like unnecessary overkill when you're driving out to grab a drive-thru combo. Any time you hit a causeway/ bridge or hill, you'll feel the gas-gauge drop.

Best Suv Ever! — This vehicle is very comfortable to drive long distances, short commutes, for everything. The height of the vehicle is excellent, and the compact size is perfect for having an SUV experience without the huge vehicle that usually goes with it. The doors are a pain for the older kids, but when they were little it was a priceless feature as they could not get out of the car on their own. I have loved this vehicle and find it to be the best I've ever owned.

Pros

Well built, good style, fanastic for off-roading, fun to drive

Cons

Visibility is limited, but the big mirrors help with the blind spots. Premium gas and low gas mileage.

Heavy Duty, Well Built Fun Off Roading — I liked it's size and reliability! It is well built. In the backcountry, i knew this car could handle any road condition i wanted to go on. It is more comfortable and handles better on main roads than a JEEP.

Great Off Road Car, — This is a "must have" car for someone that wants to travel outback! When I was on dirt roads and wanted to away: i felt safe and secure. I like tha way the back doors opened up when camping, it gave good access to front and back.

Pros

Great rugged and retro look.
Spacious interior space.
Toyota reliability and solid build reputation.
Unique rear opening doors.
Oversized door handles and knobs for glove operation.

Cons

Blind spot when reversing which can be overcome with reverse sensors (installed) and mirror adjustments.
Not the most optimised fuel economy but amongst the best for SUV.

Great Runabout For Weekend Adventures — If you are looking for something fun and reliable, then look no further. The FJ retro look coupled with modern convenience is the car for you. Toyota solid build reputation calls for fuss-free motoring with low cost maintenance. Ideal for weekend adventures!!!
