"The toyota FJ is sharp, rugged, and has plenty of power combined with good handling. For the new owner it takes a bit of time to get use to the blind spots in the vehicle and some will want to opt for a backup camera. The sound system is fair and an aftermarket system is a good idea. the vehicle is very reliable and extremely shure footed in bad weather. Interior noise is low and there are no squeeks and rattles. the V6 puts out more than adequate power and the throttle is responsive for those times you need to rabbit into traffic. Off road and the urban speed bumps and curbs it laughs at as it crests them with ease. This is just a fun, reliable, comfortable and good looking vehicle. If they continue to make them, I will own another after this one."
"The FJ has exceded my expectations. I trade vehicles quite often, and this has been my favorite to date. The only thing that is a hassle with the design is the sucicide rear doors. We have two young children (4&6), and when you park next to another car, with both doors open, you get sandwiched trying to get everyone out. We solved this by having the kids step between the front seats and come out the front doors. When they get bigger, this might not work as well. This is the type of vehicle I can see passing on to my kids when they get older. I have towed (0-5,000pounds) quite a bit with this truck with no problems. Have also done multiple off roading trips (including the 2009 FJ Summit in CO), and my stock truck had no problems. Does great dounuts in the snow/ice (I can't get enough of that). Highway ride is smooth for the most part, but you feel it on rough roads. That is to be expected with a short wheelbase. Would like to see a better armrest, but I have gotton used to it. Great truck."
"Loads of fun and great utility. Off road adventures make this a truly unique SUV. Terrific support from toyota dealers and aftermarket companies. Great reliability too.
Around town or on the rocks this a the most versatile and fun vehicle i have ever owned."
