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.

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.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 4x4, Solid. Ergonomics. Toyota reliability. Fun Car.

Cons: Cloth seats. Very manual

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: Lots of room for a small SUV

Cons: No solid front axle, or diesel engine option.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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).

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Compact size, power, comfort, style

Cons: Doors

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.

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

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.

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.

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

Pros: A FANTASTIC OFF ROAD CAR, very reliable, fun to drive, very popular style, more comfortable than a JEEP, handles better on highway than JEEP, super well built

Cons: limited visibility, requires premium fuel

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!!!

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

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.

A Great Vehicle For Work And Play. — The V6 is peppy and the handling is good. The rugged design allows for off road even if it's only occasional. The quality is there as one would expect from Toyota. The gas mileage is good for an SUV and it is nice to sit up high as you drive for a better view in traffic. The cargo rack on the top is useful and the towing package makes it a good light work vehicle.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: This SUV has great styling and is a lot of fun to drive.  It has excellent cargo space and the back seat is surprisingly spacious.  

Cons: The main challenge for this vehicle is visibility out the back.  This is helped by adding additional mirrors to the side mirrors but you have to be a observant driver in this vehicle.

Toyota Fj 4x4 — I was one of the first to purchase the newly designed 2007 FJ's and I love it. It's totally outstanding in reliability and serious 4x4 conditions. It's a simple design, but it was specifically designed for folks who know what it takes to make a rock solid off road vehicle. The mileage is low teens, but the fun factor beats the low MPG any day of the week. I also own a Prius, so go figure.

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

Pros: Best 4x4 for the money

Cons: Blind spot on the sides, but not to worry if you know how to use a side mirror.
