Absolutely nothing!

General Comments:

I use my LandCruiser for recreational (though serious) off-road driving. Therefor I installed some extras such as: 2" raise kit (TJM), dampers (KONI), 285/75 16" Mud-Train tyres (BFGoodrich), Winch (WARN 9000i), Snorkel (BIT) and Intercooler (BIT).

Terrain-ability is perfect, even with a small engine. For extra torque an intercooler is a must!

Reliability is excellent! I recently checked my engine, no wear is detected, even with a high mileage. My 'Mud-loving-criminal' never let's me down.

When driving on the road the car is a bit too stiff, but if you like comfort you won't even have to think about buying a LandCruiser.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
