Toyota FJ Cruiser

It's big, it's ragged and it's Japanese. Is it cool, then?

Re: Toyota FJ Cruiser

It's borderline cool, but only in the middle of the Desert. Anywhere else, it's uncool

Re: Toyota FJ Cruiser

I think its awful. Out of fashion like all 4x4's in general and pig ugly to boot. It should wear a paper bag on the front.

Sorry Euroboy.

Re: Toyota FJ Cruiser

Do they do a car bra for it? On this occasion it might actually make it look better.

Re: Toyota FJ Cruiser

I think its cool. Has a slight retro look about it, and those puppy-dog eyes make it look almost friendly so i doubt many eco-maniacs would give you a hard time for owning it. It's practical, it's roomy, and it wont ever go wrong. With 4x4's falling out of favour with just about everyone nowadays, i think this was a clever move by Toyota.

Re: Toyota FJ Cruiser

Nice to regulate the untidy parking in my 'over winter' caravan field though? Just the 'hammer' for a 'Pikey' like me, but too expensive, so the '50's Ex. WD, Landie Rover will have to suffice for the moment.:

Re: Toyota FJ Cruiser

Retro 4x4 that can actually go offroad with the
best of them.

If you want a real 4x4 this is one of the coolest.
End of.
