I have had more fun driving my new FJ. I have been stopped nearly everyday that I have had it and asked about it. I like that fact that there will be somewhat of a limit to the # produced. You see so many duplicates of everything else that it is fun to drive something a little unique. Thanks for the "Fun J" Cruiser...

I'm enjoying the fact that I'm driving something that's different and isn't duplicated as much as other vehicles. I really don't plan to add or change anything on my FJ because I like it as I bought it. I have the 4x4 auto titanium with everthing except the front skid plate,roof rack, bbs wheels ,first aid kit and trd exhaust system. Paid $29.500 if there are some aftermarket windshield wipers for mudd and snow, I would get those because Chicago's winter is ugly.

I had been looking for a new vehicle for about 7 months, but every SUV out there looks just like the next one. The FJ was so quirky and retro, I loved it and immediately bought it. It makes driving fun again - and I haven't felt that way since I was a teenager driving a candy apple red '49 Willy's Jeep.
I was also told that this would be a limited production run - how much stock do you put in that, and what numbers were you given?

I test drove an Fj this past week and I also felt like a youngster again. The only concern I have is that I have two kids (15, 10 of age)and I fear that if I was in a situation of distress they could not get out of the back sit because of the folding doors. Also has anyone had a proble with blind spots....???
But I am in love with it! I am currently driving a highlander 2004 with 3rd optional seats. Will I make a mistake to switch?

In response to blind spots, at first I had an adjustment period. I have since gotten used to a good view. I have to admit that I bought my FJ without test driving it. I drove it right before I paid for it. The cargo space is a bit limited and the access to the back seat is a bit odd, but I have enjoyed the heck out of it. It feels alot more "zippy" than the GMC Envoy I was previously driving. The information I got about the limited supply was about 45,000. I hope that is right. My FJ is black with white. I like the way it stands out. My boyfriend drives a black Jeep Wrangler-- Imagine that!! Have fun!!! I even ordered a black "GOT FJ" t-shirt...

#9 of 14 Be careful . . . FJ Cruiser with Roof Rack
Jun 02, 2006 (11:13 am)
I just got an FJ Cruiser last weekend and although it's a great car and it certainly does command attention, I have one slight problem with the height of the car with the added roof rack. I can't fit into the garage at my work with a clearance of 6'3". Keep this in mind if you're looking to buy one. I haven't had any problems with blind spots, but visability out the rear window is limited and will take some getting used to. Other than that, it's a great car so far.

Funny you should mention that - Edmunds just added one to the long term fleet:
"More than a few editors noted how high the FJ stands with the optional roof rack, something we figured out real quick after barely making it into our underground parking garage."
