Default Toyota FJ or Jeep Wrangler Unlimited?

FJ Cruiser vs. Wrangler Unlimited...which would you pick ???

Might be selling our '05 Nissan Armada so looking for something else. Shooting for a brand new car but might be okay with slightly used.

I read some of the stuff on these forums about Jeep and it seems like the new ones suck (in most of your opinions)

If I go with a used one it would be something like these:
Jeep: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Jeep-...item3caa1f0c49
Toyota: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Toyot...fCarsQ5fTrucks
(as you can see if I go used I want it to have extra features/upgrades)

People love their Jeeps. Honestly, every used Jeep owner I know is always working on it. I guess they are super easy to work on though. Still...

My vote goes for FJ cruiser. They use those things all over the world for off-roading.

Toyota FJ Cruiser: Off-Road Test | The Truth About Cars

I've met numerous people who drive this car. All love it. Most even do take it off-roading.

My brother and another friend bot got rid of their jeeps for that exact reason.

Love my 2008 FJ 4x4. It's been great on snow and no major issues in almost 40K miles. Check out Toyota FJ Cruiser Community. The gas mileage does suck though, I have to warn you but for my semi-frequent trips to mountains during the season, there's nothing I'd rather be in.

FJ hands down.... But I'm a Toyota guy.

Toyotas are pretty bomb proof except for this recent recall, but that's been worked out.

Also a testament to Toyota's quality centric business. Nobody told them to recall. They caught the mistake themselves and voluntarily recalled and completely shut down further production. They get an applause from me. A teenager dies from the ever so notorious Ford Explorer rollover and Ford points fingers.

That's how Toyota has ALWAYS been. People believe in buying American and I do as well, but I'm not going to support American death traps that are designed to break down.

Love me some Toyota. I think i'm on my 4th or 5th one

I'm so over that whole "buy American" shit. I also find it quite offensive when I see people with those ignorant "Out of a job yet? Keep buying foreign" stickers. The Big Three Failure has everything to do with American failure than any other variable. Any economist will tell you importing/exporting is really good for the economy.

At any rate, Toyota and Honda have factories here in America. So do their American luxury brands obviously: Lexus and Acura.

Do people honestly believe that these plants and offices are filled with nothing but Japanese workers? Get real.

Want to know a worse criminal than foreign cars? Outsourcing. Now that's something to make a bumper sticker about.
