Another question you need to ask is what is weather like in your area. If you live in the snow belt I would not want a real wheel only truck. A rront wheel drive car acturally easier to manage snow and ice then any real wheel drive. 4x4 is better the rear wheel drive but not all that better then front wheel in MHO.bobbi said:Thanks Percy. I don't have resale in my sights, but any opinion on how much it being a 4x2 would hurt down the road? It has always seemed like a given that a SUV should be a 4x4 but realistically the stats of how many actually leave the pavement say otherwise.
bobbi said:okay I'm reaching out for a little advice here, and hoping to avoid too much criticism. I'm not a "soccer mom" nor a "cheerleader". I am, however, a woman who's looking for a SUV with great design and the reliability that Toyota can provide and have fallen in love with the FJ. That being said, will I ever go off roading? Hmmmm...I've actually been thinking about it a lot lately but the likelihood is low. Can anyone give me advice on whether I should opt for a 4x2 and what a limited slip differential brings to the table that other run of the mill autos lack. Genuine advice is greatly appreciated and if you're thinking of not so pleasant things to say, just remember that I may be that person ahead of you on the dealer's list who may be passing on the "4x4" of your dreams.
