This car is a solid 10 Stars. Unfortunately Cars.com only goes up to 5 stars. The Snow Storm of 12/26/2010 in New York really made me respect this car. I saw a BMW X5, Hummer H2 ,and other so called SUV's all get stuck. My FJ Cruiser was unstoppable. I own another one.

GREAT FJ

by from Gilbert, AZ on September 26, 2011

The BEST true SUV. I have the Trail Teams package and it still drives well on the pavement! Great off road. Could use a little more power, but overall a great vehicle.

The CJ is a Fantastic Multi use vehicle

The CJ cruiser is a very well engineered vehicle that gives you the best of 2 worlds. Everyday highway use and 4 wheel drive use! After 40 years of owning different types, styles and makes of a 4 wheel type vehicle it is by far the very best. Wheelbase is fairly short with very small overhang, good ground clearance, tremendous traction capability, ample clearance for tire chains when they are needed, while at the same time being able to seat 4 people and good storage capacity inside, as well as the roof rack on top. On very rough trails, hills, mud, sand or snow you always know how it will react and what it will do. It is a pleasure after serious usage on rough 4 wheel type of roads to get on the regular highway and have almost all of the comfort a regular car has. Is really a pleasure to drive for regular highway usage. Even with the mud, dirt and grime picked up on these trails, it is very easy to clean up and maintain and keep up. Thumbs up to the engineering group that designed it!

Here I am 52 years old and looking for excused to drive my FJ Cruiser, always looking for dirt roads to go down, because maybe, just maybe there is something I can climb over, a hill, a big pile of snow piled up in parking lot. Its just one tough truck. I bought the FJ because I have to drive allot for my job and in my other car, a Cadillac, that I love is just not 4X4 material. Now I have the best of BOTH worlds. This FJ Cruiser, will go thru anything, been thru 1 1/2 feet of snow and didn’t flinch, everyone else was paralyzed and this cuts thru like a hot knife in soft butter. Its actually pretty comfortable for a truck like this. Maybe this just woke up the kid in me but if no ones looking at night, I will run over the parking blocks in parking lots. (Slowly)Why, because I can! You don’t even feel the thing. In the front seat, you sit pretty high so the view is so different, the rear view from inside is not like the Caddy, kind of like bigger van, you have to use the mirrors and they all come with a back up camera now. But I didn’t buy this for a luxury cruiser, I bought this for a 4X4 that could still be used for normal use, and this works very well for that. last month a huge snow and ice storm hit and my wife was warned by her employees about how bad the roads were and she asked me for a ride and she was WOW, we were just having a quite ride, cars and trucks in the ditch all around us and we just felt safe in warm in out FJ. I gave a neighbor a ride during same storm to the corner supermarket and after I pulled out in heavy unplowed deep snow and cut thru easily, within 1 minute she said, Oh My God this is a nice truck. I don’t know how, but no matter how much snow I bring in there, it seems to drain away, its some kind of rubberized weird flooring, very easy to clean. A wipe down is the most you need to do on the interior, nothing to polish, just an easy vehicle, easy in the snow, easy in the rain, easy on bumpy roads, easy to clean, I bought the 120,000 mile extended warrantee with mine, but then talked to someone with 110,000 miles and said he has had NO problems, but better safe than sorry, it wasn’t that much money. Bit the bottom line, would I buy this vehicle again, YES, this is the first vehicle that I have had no second thoughts on. I just really like this truck. I can use this for the heavy duty stuff, and towing up to 5000 pounds and still can use it as a everyday commuter, I guess because I have the tow package and a 8 foot trailer anyways, this passes as a heavy duty pickup truck on those rare times I need one. I still love the refinement of my Caddy, but like I said, I have every angle covered between the both of them. I have NO other needs that these cant to.
