My dream car, is not your typical SUV, is different. I like a luxury car for me.

This vehicle is a dream if you are into SUV. I love it, is comfortable, reliable, and the best car I ever had. Also is a conversation maker. Everyone you meet is asking question about my car because is also beautiful. I have never had a problem with that car for the two years that I own it. The only time I have seen the mechanic is for oil change or to place an automatic remote start.

Visibility when driving the fj cruiser.

The only thing I do not like about the fj is the poor visibility. The side mirrors create a large blind spot & there is not great visibility out the back window or side passenger windows. The poor visibility takes a little getting used to - you certainly have to be more cautious, double check with turns (especially left turns), but once you are used to it, it is not a problem.

It is not sold brand new anymore. Toyota discontinued fj cruisers.

I love the size of this vehicle. I love the feeling of driving a large car while not actually feeling like you are in one. The downsides about this car are the blind spots that occur off the side of the front windows, and that the back seat windows don't roll down. I feel really safe in this car, and I like that the temperature and compass are easily accessible to the eye.
