Default Anyone here have a Toyota FJ Cruiser?

Anyone here have a Toyota FJ Cruiser?
I have been considering one, if you own one please give me a mini review of it.

I currently have a Honda Element which has been fantastic , what scares me most about the FJ is that it has an even smaller windshield than my Element!
I am sure you would get used to it but id appreciate some feedback with someone with experience with an FJ Cruiser.

To be totally honest , the main reason I am considering one is for its looks. Frankly the FJ seems not much bigger than my Element inside. I have heard the FJs are great for 4 wheeling. Though I am not into that, however we get snow some winters and a 4wd is nice to have. My Element is 4wd and handles in the snow better than any other 4wd I have ever driven, Jeeps included.

Tell me about your FJ Cruisers!

thanks

You should get a Jeep Commander. Back in 2006 I was thinking of buying a new SUV. The three that were in my mind were the FJ, Hummer H3 and Jeep Commander (I love squared SUV's). I test drove all three and I decided to get the Commander. It drove really smooth and the handling is excellent. I've been to Vegas six times in it and no problem. I do like the FJ, don't me wrong. That monster look's awesome.

Honestly that tiny windshield on the FJ will probably be the deal breaker, I drive in some beautiful country and like having a nice view.

Here's a little warning about the FJ, it has a bad blind spot from the inside. The windshield is very small and it has three tiny windshield wipers.

Welp, I basically took a 180 degree turn today, I bought a 2010 VW Golf with 1060 miles on it.
Some guy bought it , drove it a few weeks and decided that he wanted a truck.
I got a good deal on it and they gave me a nice trade in on my 06' Element.
But I do have to buy some nicer tires and rims. Those are just plastic hubcaps on black rims......

I heard somewhere that FJs are going up in value.

I traded my Accord for a 2012 FJ Cruiser. This SUV has plenty of horsepower, good off-road capability and decent fuel economy. Rear visibility isn't great, and I just don't like the wheels. My plan is to install a hitch and get some towing accessories for it.
