1992 Toyota Landcruiser GXL 4.0L 3F
A reliable, capable and comfortable vehicle
Transmission rebuild at 160000kms (rear engine seal started leaking soon after).
Fuel pump seals failed at 220000kms causing a large oil leak (new pump).
Front diff rebuild at 230000kms.
Brake cylinder was failing.
Clutch was slipping under heavy load (i.e. towing).
Transfer was heavily worn causing lots of play and 'clunking' between gear changes.
The reliability of this car was unbelievable.
The engine never had any work except oil changes, plugs, leads, fuel pump and tune up.
Gearbox was not reliable long term.
Constant 4WD was the cause of the transfer wear.
Travelled around Australia twice and never missed a beat.
Only stuck on the roadside once because of a very dirty load of fuel (not the cars fault!!!).
Currently live on a sand island off the coast of East Australia, therefore it got plenty of beach and sand work.
Body was in perfect condition, no rust e.t.c.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
