Re: Doug DeMuro finally reviews the FJ
I watched that last night. His review really highlighted my obsession with the FJ. I got really mad when he slagged things like the knobs and how far away the windshield is. Moreover, if the rear wiper was any larger it'd be too big. And three wipers on the front is the perfect amount just like the MGB I had. Plus, who gripes about a rear view camera? Weirdo.
Here's my gripe with every review: gee, the FJ doesn't accelerate like a car or corner well. It drives like it's supposed to. It's an off-road vehicle so it's not going to be a sports car. Would you expect a quad to keep up with a sport bike? Then why expect a real 4x4 to keep pace with a sports car?
I did agree with the shift knob. I've never liked the shift knob. It looks like something you'd smack an insolent kid with.
What doesn't kill me makes me more cynical.
