You are in the Hummer
What is this discussion about?
Toyota FJ Cruiser, HUMMER H3, SUV

Gonna put this over in the H3 section too. Obviously you're biased, but thought this might be fun...
I've only begun to look, but I see lots of similarities between the FJ & the H3.
If you have an opionion let us know

Let's keep this one and link it to both groups; that way we can keep all the posts together.

There is no comparing Toyota quality to anything else, especially Hummer. I would take the FJ. It also looks good, not like a Jeep Cherokee with fender flares like the H3.

I agree now. The more of the Hummer I see, I'm sort of over it. Plus, it's GM

I've had my FJ for 4 months and have no complaints. I took it offroad at Paragon Adventure Park and it dominated. Never once did I get stuck compared to the Rubicons and H3s. The H3 could barely maneuver through part of the trails.

I can see now that I wasn't thinking clearly when insisting the H3 is close to the FJ. The more I learn about the FJ, the less I like the H3. In-fact, the H3 just looks ugly now. So yes -- next purchase will likely be the FJ. 'Just a matter of when' Thanks!

I've owned my Hummer H3 for 13 months now and I too am a long standing believer in Toyota... I have owned my share of Toyota's so as my GM H3 passes 15000 miles I too am wondering just how long to wait before moving to a Toyota... So much so that I have spent nearly 2 full days going thru and test driving the FJs and I have finally found my answer... Never!! The FJ is a sad example for either an off roader or a replacement for an H3... Inside and out - off road or on it is handily beat by the H3... Over and over I see online comparisons that have completely incorrect data for the H3 and in the end it comes down to feel and function... Anyone can see the H3 has better function - it is written in the many specifications available (the accurate one's anyway)... But feel - there is simply no comparison... The H3 feels like a capable truck and the FJ feels like a plastic toy... I entered into my search for a more reliable car than a GM (any GM) knowing I would buy a Toyota FJ and have came away knowing I will never own a 2007 FJ... I would pay the $23,000 retail price and I will certainly never pay the inflated $30,000...

Why would anyone of sound mind, spending their own money, even consider buying a Hummer - any Hummer ? Surely the most pointless road vehicle of the last 25 years. If you want to go serious off-roading you buy a Land Rover.............a proper one, not the luxury, leather upholstered hairdressers versions. If you only stay on-road buy an Audi. Next.

They dont sell the proper Land Rovers for less than a small fortune from what I have seen...same with the Audi

Can't argue with that.............but surely just a small fortune is worth parting with for the best ? Over here in good old Blighty the Hummer is horrendously expensive, (it's a specialist import so just put a £ sign in place of the $ sign and you're probably pretty close).
Seems to be pretty much the norm. The Cadillac CTS 3.6 is listed over here at nearly £30k which, at 1.96$ per £ equates to around $59k. Now think of our gasoline prices at circa $6.40 per USG, (Diesel is more expensive), and you could get the impression we get screwed for our motoring pleasure - compared to USA anyway. Sorry, will stop before this turns into a rant.
