Such a fun vehicle to drive!

2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4WD 4dr Auto (Natl)

I love this vehicle so much that it's the second one we've owned. We were in a rollover accident and this little tank was amazing! So we bought another one because we felt (still do) very safe. It's extremely reliable if you take proper maintenance (oil, air filter, tires, etc.). It's been completely comfortable for long (across states) road trips and a lot of fun off-roading! Love the simple, intuitive features. The inside seat material and rubber flooring are amazing for quick and easy cleaning! Spacious enough for two 100 lbs dogs. The back doors can be a bit frustrating if you have kids that need to be in a carry that you'll pull in and out just because of the angle that they open, but that's about the only negative thing.

My car is customized and it is blue.

2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4WD 4dr Auto (Natl)

It reliable on different terrains and has a lot room for putting things in. Also it is quite easy to use. The only problem is that it is not great on gas mileage but otherwise I really love it. The seats are very comfy and it is very easy to clean inside because of the flooring it has. For anyone is considering to go on a off road trip this a very good car to buy.

FJ cruisers are reliable and built like a tank.

2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4WD 4dr Auto (Natl)

I love my FJ, I got into a pretty severe accident this last winter that involved me colliding into the side of a mountain. My car only received cosmetic damage and it runs perfect still. It is built like a tank. That being said, it is also a gas guzzler, so it does hurt the wallet a bit. But for security and safety I wouldn't trade it ever.

Great handling, poor visibility

2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4WD 4dr Auto (Natl)

The visibility is absolutely terrible. The size of the windows are so small compared to the rest of the car. The giant tire in the middle of the back window also obstructs views. Also goes through quite a bit of gas. However, the car handles very well. Great for off roading, icy conditions, getting other vehicles unstuck.

Fj cruiser is a must have for explorative families.

2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4WD 4dr Auto (Natl)

This car is a gem! It runs well, drives smooth, and is very safe. It is very reliable. It has never broken down and drives perfectly at over 200,000 miles. It is very comfortable for long trips and has good gas mileage. The suicide doors are automatically childproof, which is great for a family who loves to go exploring.

FJ Cruiser - Good buy. Best transport, storage, and reliability.

2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4WD 4dr Auto (Natl)

Overall, our FJ Cruiser has made for a very reliable vehicle selection for our outings. Excellent space and drivability in the outdoors. We go kayaking at least every other month and it is a reliable, sturdy choice for storage and transport. Would definitely recommend and consider getting another in the future.

Fun, Quirky, Easy to drive, Easy to love

2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser 4WD 4dr Auto (Natl)

4 wheel drive is awesome. Three windshield wipers are quirky and fun. Comfortable and reliable. Reverse camera is very helpful. Tire pressure alert even on the spare. Love this vehicle. Going into the mountains is made easy with this vehicle. Slip differential makes rocks no problem.
