1997 Toyota Landcruiser gxl 3.4litre quad cam
This is the perfect all round on and off road 4 wheel drive
Drivers' seat belt tensioner failed.
Brake discs warped several times.
Rear springs softened causing bottoming out.
Clutch slips under load.
Lacks torque on long uphill roads.
Generally an extremely quiet and refined vehicle which handles like a road car in most situations.
Performs extremely well off-road with a secure and surefooted feel.
Has a great soft ride on rough tracks/beach etc which reduces fatigue a lot.
Has plenty of room all round.
Quietest and smoothest engine I've ever experienced even with 261000klms on the clock.
Excellent fuel economy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
