I remember that article. I read it when I was shopping for my '12. Could have gotten a new FJ or a new Taco, test drove both, the Tacoma came home.

Um..I'm 6'1" and don't even have the front seat all the way back. Really ? The windshield in the Taco is more raked than the FJ,but I don't really see feeling " squished against the windshield".

Love the FJ interior, especially the round sport like center of the steering wheel, and the color keyed dash. The new taco wheel is too space ship falcon type. Be nice, if toyota would put that traditional type sport steering wheel, and the beautiful non metalic paint jobs on the new taco. Really like the B.R.G., tan, maroon. I thought toyota was going to discontinue the F.J, or redesign it. Dont flame me...jus sayin

I always liked the Taco, then the FJ came out and I fell in love, test drove both several times, I liked the FJ more but in the end I brought the Taco home thanks to my quad. I don't use the quad at all now so now I regret getting my Taco even though it is a great truck. Maybe I will trade in for a Runner in the near future.

My son thought I was nuts for even considering the FJ - why would you get that when you could get a Tacoma?

I liked the FJ, wish the back seat had more leg room (same as the Tacoma), wish the rear windows would roll down. The visibility was a problem - my wife doesn't drive my vehicles that often, but still I saw her crunching this at some point or another... The FJ seemed poorly suited to a family man's needs = more like a couples vehicle (like a 2 door Jeep). I think the Tacoma's longer wheel base also makes it a superior tow vehicle and I tow (4 wheeler trailer, camper, boat, etc...)

I just traded a 2011 FJ for a 2012 Tacoma. The FJ was great in the mud, sand and highway. I had no complaints. It even pulled my boat well. I had a FJ and a pickup though. That's twice the insurance, twice the payments. I got the 4WD Tacoma and only have 1 vehicle now. The FJ Rocks though!!!

Wrecked the Taco and we just happened to have a FJ on the lot. I stole it. I loved that Taco but this FJ has been a blast so far. Between my pops and my girls pops we've got two big ass trucks at our disposal. And our dogs love drives even more now with the back window popped open. My best friend does call it the Foot Job Cruiser though...

I'm considering the trade now. I love my Taco but I was never happy buying another truck when I never use the bed.

Yeah. I hear you there. Only owed 8k on on my Taco
Get a used stock FJ. Let someone else have taken the depreciation hit. Sounds like you have equity in your Taco
or maybe even paid off? All I can say is that I feel like a little kid when I drive the FJ. Me in FJ ---->
And I was sick of the crickets living in my 6 spd Taco's tranny and/or AC unit hahaha

I went the other way. Got sick of being the most recognized vehicle in my small town. tacoma for fj-imageuploadedbytapatalk1339884327.046961.jpg

Even sticks out on trade in day! And, I chased the same crickets in my blower motor and some sort of high pitched electrical noise that I had the entire time I owned it. tacoma for fj-imageuploadedbytapatalk1339884461.605120.jpg

Oh ya... in a New York Minute!

I'd be driving an FJ instead of the Taco if we had been able to swing the financing, but we were maxed out at 15k OTD.

I tried again yesterday and they only want to give me 20 for my truck. They knocked off a whopping 500 from the FJ's sticker price. I think I'm just going to drop it for now. My truck is great just not exactly what I wanted.

Tough market right now.

When the 2013 models are released, they'll perform sexual favors to clear out their '12s
