- Great looking, tough car
- Dearlers marking up the price
After looking and waiting I finally found a used FJ in the price range I was looking for. I traded in a virtually new Xterra on it. I LOVE THIS CAR!!!!!!!! It looks great, and rides like you would expect an SUV to...a little louder and rougher than a car. The plastic interior has held up well, and since I seldom put anyone in the back seat, the difficult access is not an issue for me. Cargo room behind the rear seat is a lot bigger than it looks. I recently had a driver cut me off and force me into the guard rail. The impact felt so big, I expected the driver side of the car to be crushed. When I checked it out, I found what basically amounts to a long scratch down the side. There is some damage, but nothing like I expected. This is an awesome car....read morehide

- CAN'T BE ANY, IF ITS NOT DAKAR PROVEN! SHOULD IT BE!
- COMMERCIALS IN GLAMBIS DESERT RESORT SANDS IN CALIFORNIA IS NOT THE PLACE!
hAVE SEEN THE COMMERCIALS OF TOYOTA IN THE GLAMBIS DESERT DUNES IN CALIFORNIA AND FOUND OUT IT IS A RESORT AREA, NOT THE DAKAR DESERT IN WHICH MITSUBISHI MONTERO/PAJERO TESTS ITS VEHICLE TO THE EXTREME TORTURE NEGOTIATING DESERT, RIVERS, ROCKS, MUD, MOUNTAINS, GRASS AND NO ROADS WITH 5,900 MILES OF IT AND 15 DAYS. THAT IS THE TEST FOR A RATED DAKAR TOUGH SUV!...read morehide

- attractive looks
- the escape capability is low when in emergency that need out side assistance.
This car is really beatiful except that it has a limitation on door operation that prevent out side assistance in case of an emergency such as a crash. It is a suggestion for Toyota to design full 4 doors operation that allow driver and all passengers open all doors and also allow out side assistance to open any door to assist driver and passenger in case of emergency....read morehide

- Still living in the past with the "FJ" Name which was much better than todays
- Lots of plastic that it might not stand up to time.
The people still believing in the legendary FJ Landcruiser, which is the real name of the 1962 vehicle, is NOT the same as the new one. Toyota wants to revive that legend with a new vehicle, but falls short. Firstly, the Toyota Landcruiser of today is the one using the name, but it is more expensive than the 1962 version. Secondly, the existing Landcruiser has not participated in any gruelling test of machine like the Dakar Rally in Africa. Third, Toyota is out for only the money, by trying to exploit the then famous name to generate more money for the company, but really, it is not equal to the past version....read morehide

- Toyota Brand but Honda Element way better Offroad Machine
- Not Proven at all, still in new vehicle stage
The Element is a well thought out and has a great track record. I'm choosing the Element way over the FJ because it wasn't thought out and just the Toyota name won't make it this time. Since their both the most direct competition, the Element is it's superior in all area's. As soft road only machine's (FJ & the Element), the Element has better gas milage and the same room inside, and with none of those horrible blind spots. Honda Element is the better choice and that's what I'm buying....read morehide

- better fuel economy than my old Tacoma double cab with TRD, nice ride-like 4 runner, love ipod input
- hard to see when going in reverse, jump door is awkward in tight spaces
I wanted this car since the first time I saw it in the magazine. The rear passenger area in very cramped, but the front has so much more room than my Tacoma double cab: I feel like it is twice as big. I was surprised at how well it turns, feels much tighter than the Tacoma because of the shorter body. And it looks HOT with the roof rack and step bars. It's pays respect to its namesake while providing modern convenience I appreciate....read morehide

- Toyota brand means "reliable."
- Rides like a slab. Brakes just fair. Acceleration feels like 0-60mph in a day.
I used to sell Toyotas and was really excited to drive the new FJ, especially after seeing the new body style. I currently drive an '05 Nissan Xterra (which has been a dream-come-true.)
When I test drove the FJ I found it to be slow, truck-like riding (not smooth and car-like) and the windows make for tons of blind-spots, especially the rear window, where Toyota choose to not only make that window inoperable, but stuck the spare tire right behind it, thus blocking a large portion of the already limited view.
Seating is just barely adequate. Rear seating is very snug...certainly too small for anyone who has children over the age of 10. My teenagers would never fit in back.
Overall I was very disappointed, and left the test drive feeling relieved and reassured that my good ol' XTerra was staying in my garage where it belongs. The Xterra has over 54K miles on it in just 14 months and has never broken down...ever. And, when I was rear-ended on the highway by a Toyota sedan, the Xterra drove off with a slightly bent trailor hitch and the other guy's guy was totaled!
Buy an Xterra. Save your money and get a better vehicle too!...read morehide

- Its a Toyota
- Toyota has lost its mind
Well I could buy 10 of these paying cash even with the high dealer mark ups. I still agree with all the sour grapes, THIS CAR IS NOT WORTH 30K!!! I think people have every right to feel crossed up by toyota when the MSRP posted on this web site is $22k but when you get to the dealer---good luck finding one under $30k.
I own 2 toyotas currently. The dealer knows me well. The call me twice a week trying to sell me another car. I told them 30k is not something I am willing to pay for the FJ and they said they will call me again when they run out of people who are.
Fair enough. Except I will probably be driving a Nissan by then. Economics 101, the law of substitution....send me to another brand at your own risk...thats how the AMERICANS USED TO DO IT......read morehide

- New design and look from the original japanese land cruiser
- The price is not worthit too much!! way too much!!!!!!!
It's nice because i like land cruisers, but honestly the price is to high. I really like to get one but it's too much! I hope they lower it down the way it should be priced and i will surely get one before i get a nissan!
