Best vehicle in its class


VERY few.

Other than normal maintenance (plugs, filters, shocks, etc), the only things that are not original are the thermostat and alternator (at 149,000).

General Comments:

Best I've owned. Intend to put another 150,000 miles on it. At 10 years old, it is worth much more than my wife's 5 year old Grand Cherokee.

Off road abilities can't even be challenged by today's SUV.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a '90 Landcruiser with over 260,000 miles, still going strong, original transmission too. It's unbelievable! Daily use, over 100 miles a day stop and go, freeway, in LA no less...

I love my Land Cruiser, great looks and great reliability. I just have to laugh at the people who pay so much more for a new SUV. My 91 Landcruiser will outperform the best on or off the road. My only negative is the 4.0 liter V6 is very underpowered.
