Model News

The Toyota FJ Cruiser is all new for 2007, and it is based on the 4Runner chassis. Its styling echoes the Toyota FJ40 that was sold in the U.S. from 1960 to 1984. The new FJ uses a 239-horsepower 4.0L V6 engine, which makes it a hoot to drive. A five-speed automatic transmission can be ordered on any FJ Cruiser, while a six-speed manual is reserved for four-wheel-drive variants.


Value Writeup

With a base price in the low $20,000 range, the 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser is an exceptional value for the weekend warriors for whom it was designed. The styling harkens back to the Toyota FJ40 and is not part of the looks-like-everything-else school of SUV design. It is a great choice for those looking for a compact SUV that is more off-road than on-road oriented, and Consumer Reports has given it the best reliability rating possible for its first year.


Model Highlights

The 2007 FJ Cruiser joins a very extensive lineup of Toyota SUVs. With the RAV4, Highlander, 4Runner, Sequoia, and Land Cruiser (let alone the various Lexus iterations), what niche does the FJ fit into that isn't already covered by Toyota's existing SUVs? The fun, modern-yet-retro, go-anywhere-off-road niche.

Most impressive is the 239-horsepower 4.0L V6 engine. Its semi-throaty roar makes the FJ seem fast, yet the exhaust was stock quiet under moderate acceleration. The boisterous engine lends a lot of off-road competence to the vehicle.

There are a lot of interesting items that make the FJ different from your everyday, grocery-getting SUV. The flooring and seats are made of a material that encourages cleaning with a hose. The tilt urethane steering wheel is nicely sized, and feels almost like a scuba diver's glove in your hand. While it looks like a two-door, there are two rear-hinged doors that open widely to reveal a rear seat with a 60/40 split seat back.

The Star Safety System is standard equipment in the FJ. It includes vehicle stability control, ABS brakes, front air bags, and three point belts in every position. Further protection comes both from standard underbelly skid plates, and ones that are part of the $1,000 convenience package, as well as front and rear side curtain air bags.

The two-wheel-drive FJ comes with a five-speed automatic transmission whereas the four-wheel-drive model can be ordered with a six-speed manual or the automatic.

In addition to the many post-production options Toyota usually offers, FJ's can be equipped with running boards, TRD (Toyota Racing Department) goodies, upgraded wheels, and remote keyless entry. A rear clearance sonar device assists in rock riding applications.

Summary
Toyota is recalling certain Toyota Racing Development (TRD) brake kits, P/N PTR09-35070, and TRD High-Performance brake kits, P/N PTR09-35100, installed by Toyota vehicle processing centers and sold by Toyota dealers as an optional accessory for model year 2007 through 2012 Toyota FJ Cruiser vehicles. The subject TRD brake kit is specifically designed for the front wheels of 2007-2012 model year FJ Cruiser vehicles. Due to the shape of the outer brake tube of the brake kit, the clearance between the outer brake tube and a TRD 16 inch 6-spoke alloy wheel is minimal. If wheel balance weights are installed in an incorrect location, there is a possibility that the outer brake tube could be damaged due to interference with the balance weight, and brake fluid could leak from the damaged tube.

Consequence
If a brake tube becomes damaged and leaks fluid, it may result in increased stopping distances, and in some cases, loss of vehicle front braking performance, which could increase the risk of a crash.

All known owners of 2007-2012 model year FJ Cruiser vehicles will be notified by first class mail. If the vehicle is equipped with one of the TRD brake kits, the brake caliper outer brake tube will be replaced with a newly designed one at no charge. During this service, if necessary, the dealer will make wheel balance adjustments. This remedy will be performed even if the vehicle has original equipment 16 inch or 17 inch wheels or TRD 16 inch Beadlock ring type wheels, which are not affected by the condition, to assure sufficient clearance in the event wheels are changed at a later time. Notification to owners will begin in mid-November 2012. Owners may contact Toyota Customer Experience Center at 1-800-331-4331.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) is recalling certain model year 2007-2013 FJ Cruiser vehicles manufactured January 25, 2006 through February 23, 2013 and equipped with a Toyota Auxiliary Driving Lamp Kits mounted to the front bumper. These lamp assemblies include 55 watt bulbs and due to this wattage and mounting angle, the combination of the upper beam headlamps plus the auxiliary lamps are too bright and exceed the maximum light output allowed for an upper beam headlamp. Therefore, these vehicles fail to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, "Lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment."

Consequence
Light intensities above the maximum allowable limit could cause increased glare for oncoming traffic and increase the risk of a crash.

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the 55 watt bulbs with 35 watt bulbs, free of charge. The recall began on June 6, 2013. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

SEAT BELTS

Potential Number of Units Affected
209,000

Summary
Toyota is recalling certain model year 2007 through 2013 FJ Cruiser passenger vehicles. The retractors for the front driver and passenger seat belts are mounted in the access door (rear door) panels of the vehicle. Due to insufficient strength of the access door panel, cracks may develop in the panel if the access door is repeatedly and forcefully closed over an extended period of time.

Consequence
If cracks occur in the panel around the lower retractor anchor, the seat belt retractor could become detached, which could increase the risk of injury to an occupant in the event of a crash.

The safety recall began on June 6, 2013. Toyota will mail an interim letter to owners late in April 2013. Remedy notifications to the owners for the repair will begin in late May 2013. Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
