Agreed !I do not wish that i had all wheel drive on the FJ. You get worse mileage. If it is so bad that i cannot get traction in 2wd, 4wd works perfectly fine. I see no reason for the awd.
Having it as an option is okay with me, just not standard.
Here's another fuel economy observation . . . there are way the he!! more people driving four wheel drive and all wheel drive vehicles than there needs to be. If you aren't an off-roader or don't have a big boat to unload on the ramp there is very little reason to have more than a front wheel drive vehicle. I applaud the folks that have 2wd FJs because not only are they realists, it makes their wheeling exploits (if there are any) that much more adventurous.
