Not a wanna-be off-road vehicle! by Lisa from Sparta on 08/14/2007. Trim: 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4X4 AT, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I love just about everything......stop on a dime with 9 cents change! Great acceleration. Better than expected mileage for such a heavy vehicle. May have premium fuel reccomendation, but I run regular with NO noticeable consequences. avg 21 mpg and I drive it hard. Great interior room and love the washability inside. I live in the mountains....mud, snow, ice, rain, or sleet have never stopped me. AMAZING off road too!!! Factory lockers are a nice option. After putting "real" tires on it, I have yet to get stuck.
Cons: I have the black cherry....pretty color but paint quality for 07 Toyotas has suffered (I have a corolla and a camry) The paint is very fragile on all of them. Also, I don't like not being to make changes to lighting and alarm functions without "dealer" permission. They guard these codes like national security secrets. Seats could be a little more user friendly. Needs more storage compartments (ie: console or other box with a lid) Factory tire choice is a joke especially for a "serious " off road vehicle.
Overall review: For an off the lot purchase, I am impressed with the research, thought and equipment Toyota put into the FJ. I traded my Tahoe for this one. I have owned Jeeps, 4runner, Nissan, both factory and modified, and for the money and what you get.....oh what a feeling!
