toyotommy said:Like yoyoyo, the "quality" of materials on the vehicles presented to us was WAAAYYYY off for a Toyota. Hopefully this is pre-prodcution trait. I have some closeups of the door panel and and exterior trim in my gallery. I took my fingernail and with little pressure could scar the exterior trim.
For an event this nice, I would have hoped to see a vehicle that is production or at least very close. The interior panels should have had disclaimer notes posted if not the real deal. Have to wait and see...
I just have to face the fact that this vehicle is not intented as a four-person trailmaker/soccer practice/grocery getter. Looking at the video presented and how this car is being marketed, it is purely intended for the off-road enthusiast but still allows comfort for two with modern day conveniences and reliability. This is not a dressed up 4Runner/Tacoma, but built for a specific purpose.
Basically, the FJ is more serious than I thought and I applaud Toyota for making the effort. For me with small kids and car seats to deal with, probably go with the 4Runner for now.
ill be evaluating the thing for morning cartage duties for 2 1st graders....if it passes that test im buying one.
