Purchased As New
ok let me start with the fact i had very high expectations for this vehicle. I lusted after it and stalked it for a couple of years before I took the plunge. The only regret I have is not buying one sooner. It has met every expectation and suprised me with how nice a ride and how much fun it is to drive.
It is very economical compared to other SUV's in the same class as the FJ but this is a Toyota, so it should hold up better than the competition.
My FJ has 4 wheel drive, automatic, and off road package which included the rear lockers, blistine shocks, and BF goodrich tires. Mine also came with traction control which i would highly recomend especially if you live in a snowy climate like SLC Utah. No hill was to slick and I could stop anywhere I wanted to. I feel very safe.
The V6 has plenty of power to climb up some very impressive mountain passes with four good size adults and I still got 20 mpg no joke. Granted in town I only get 16-18 mpg but i need to keep my foot out of the pedal a little and that would help.
Parking can be tough with big doors that swing out and the suicide backdoors are not that user friendly unless you have plenty of room. Backing up is made a lot easier and safer with the back up sonar that starts beeping when you get close.
Inside features like cruise, heating and a/c controls are easy to use and read. The rubber floor board and the tough seats are meant to get beat up and clean easy. back seats dont fold down quite flat but it hasnt been a problem yet.
I say if you see someone with an FJ ask them if you can poke your head in, most would be happy to show off their pride and joy.
