    Made Two Repairs On It: New Starter And New Ac System. And Tune Up. — I met some one, once, who had one like this. He told me that the manufacturer made a mistake building those Land Cruiser. I asked him what he means. He said: "They are too well made, they are too reliable." I agree with that after owning one for 11 years and counting. If you don't check the speedometer, you won't realise that you speeding. Very smooth acceleration, good braking and handling. It is fun to drive and I particulary feel safe driving it.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Fast, strong, confortable and good gas mileage (6 cylenders).

    Cons: What sucks about my car is to get cargo room, I have to fold aside the third row seat or completely remove it. (it is removable).

    Amazing Investment - Safe Ride - Beautiful Suv — Bought my sweet LandCruiser when in AZ when it was 2yrs young, and it moved to TX with me for 2 years, and the last 7 now in Germany. This vehicle is awesome! I have a hoopty for general around town and to-from work, but every so often i treat myself to driving my baby- he loves to open up on the Autobahn! Had an Opel sedan hit me in a Stau on the Autobahn a few years ago - wiped away the front half of her Opel, and I had a scratched bumper...! Of course, I had her buy me a new towing frame and painted bumper, but my heart was hurt more seeing my LandCruiser injured, than there was damage to him! Minute - insignificant note would be a slight dripping above the driver's left foot rest when it's raining hard, or i'm flying down the Autobahn. And, to the note about poor brake pad wear: it was 7 years before i had to change my first pair...if you understand you're driving a beast, and it takes longer to get stopped, you learn to brake gradually, when possible, and not ride the brakes nor slam them in your daily outings. Otherwise, i've turned down a few offers to sell, because i love my Limited Edition 40th Anniversary LandCruiser that much!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: stability, quality, appearance, value, ruggedness

    Cons: slight leak above left foot rest, woodgrain inlay beginning to spot - despite using sunshield the last 11yrs

    If You Want To Drive Around The City Or The Mountains Or The Mud Or The Desert In Style Get This. — I inherited this car from my grandfather who used to bring it to his farms all the time. It has clocked in at 400k kms already and yet it is still running great. This is my current college car and I'm still being complimented on its looks and outstanding performance in offroad and rugged terrain. <3 this car. Its a diesel so its powerful and the fuel consumption isn't as bad as the gas variants.

    Pros: Solid car for everyday commuting in all weather and can bring you anywhere you want, regardless of terrain.

    Cons: almost below average fuel consumption.

    Want Another One!! — The most awesome turbo diesel machine on wheels - Lexus trim, just goes and goes, towed my 26ft Wellcraft like it wasn't there. Why you cannot buy one in USA is amazing - duh! Seated 8 in comfort - great for long trips

    Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

    Pros: Just the best tow vehicle ever with family

    Cons: you haven't smelled the coffe yet

    Simply Great... — You simply can't destroy this beast... love it... comfy and performance is great... with 3 diff locks and a factory winch... full-time four wheel drive... This vehicle is simply amazing. I still believe this is the last of the real 4x4 Land Cruiser... the rest are luxury vehicles.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Just great...

    Cons: Nothing...

    Awesum Truck — I recieved a black 1997 toyota land cruiser that we had had in my family when i turned 16. we got it with about 3,000 miles on it and it now has close to 190,000 and it still runs unbelievably. i recieve compliments about it all the time especially with the off road look with a brush guard and fog lights. overall great truck and would recommend to anyone.

    Pros: Realiable and a very tough 4wd vehicle

    Cons: GAS

    The Beast — Performance times and braking on the vehicle are terrible, however it built as a serious off-roader and it has already gone down in history as first production SUV on Antartica, that speaks for itself. As far as fun-to-drive factor the car lacks some but with the low gear ratios and the locking differential, as I mentioned previously, it makes up for somewhat.

    Pros: Plush interior, great off-road

    Cons: Inline 6 cylinder and no V-8 offered for that year, terrible soundsystem

    The Reliable Toyota Land Cruiser 80 Series — performance for a 6 cylinder turbo diesel engine is excellent, efficient in city driving and powerful on highway and off road driving. build like the car while last forever very well designed suspension, makes you confident that the vehicle can take you where your going and back. very good resale value. i take pride in driving it around town

    Pros: built like a tank, very smooth ride and very well designed engine and suspension

    Cons: have not experienced anything negative about it on and off road
