Dear Toyota.....


I can't believe that there is no way to exit the rear of the FJ. As much as I hate the Government ruling our lives, I would think it would be Federal Law to be able to open the rear door from inside the vehicle.

A fire up front, or nosed down into a lake, stream or pond, any sort of serious accident, whatever the case may be. It would be nice to have the option.

He!!, when camping and you need to get out in the middle of the night to take a leak.

I know there are things ! can do to modify it, I want Toyota to do it for me. I think it should be a total recall.
I agree. Also comes in hand when sleeping inside while camping. Especially when you need to take a whizz. To solve this I used a Gun cleaning push rod (the threads break so easily) and drilled a hole on my rear window ledge. The rod goes down inside where I connected it to the release mechanism. Now all I have to do is push down on the rod and the door opens. Did this while adding a toggle to open the window from inside. Comes in handy. May post pics once I figure out how everything works here.
I'm new as of 5 minutes ago.
Love my FJ!
