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...

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
