So, the first week with my FJ Cruiser has been pretty good. The buyers remorse is wearing off and I’m getting used to the idea of having a different vehicle. Also, I’m finding myself actually excited to drive places. And I do really enjoy driving it.
Driving to and from Iowa was comfortable and easy. The ride is decently smooth (unlike he stiff suspension on the mini). And I enjoyed sitting up higher and the seats are decently supportive.
To give you an idea how much I like my new truck, I read the owners manual cover to cover on Christmas Eve.
We’ve also had some sloppy snow the past few days so I have kicked it into 4WD to test that out. It works great, btw.
I have noticed that the high center of gravity and fwd does make it less surefooted than the AWD minis. So that is taking a little getting used to.
Also- I had to replace the wipers on it. I know, right? What?? Well, evidently the dealer didn’t see fit to do that, which kind of bums me out. But it gave me good practice at doing it.
(PS– did I mention that the front windshield has 3 wiper blades? So quirky! So fun!)
