2000 Toyota Landcruiser 4.7 Liter


Still an ICON!


#1 Replaced an exhaust manifold by choice.

#2 Put a new muffler

#3 13-16 MPG combined with removal of 3rd seats

#4 Slightly short on power compared to peers, but definitely adequate.

General Comments:

Overall, this has been an extremely trustworthy car. It has a go-anywhere ability, yet refined on the road. Power is a bit short, but adequate in climbing hills on the highways to pass vehicles. You can't beat a toyota if you are going to keep the car for a long time. The landcruiser has been described an "ICON" And so it lives up to its reputation.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

2000 Toyota Landcruiser



General Comments:

My wife has driven our Lexus 470 LX for 4 years (in town and highway driving), buying it in 2001, one year old. We have had no problems. It is expensive to operate (mpg is 13) and maintain (Lexus' service dept. is excellent and expensive), and perfect to drive. It now has 90,000 miles and is running as when we bought it. The auto is the best we have ever owned - ie. Suburbans and Mercedes 300E's. I fully expect to be able to drive it to 250,000 - another 12 years.

The guy is on the Toyota Land-cruiser site, talking about a Lexus!

The guy must realize that the Land Cruiser and the Lexus LX 470 are the SAME vehicle with the exception of a added few features.

Yeah, the Lexus falls under the Toyota umbrella... it's the luxury division, i.e., the right to charge more for extra bells & whistles albeit it's the same powerplant under the hood.

Anyway, the Landcruiser has reached cult status just like its predecessor *FJ60* or even the "Pig" *FJ55*. Although most enthusiasts prefer the smaller version ~> the legendary *FJ40* which is Toyota's answer to The Rover Defender-90, an overpriced 4x4 because it carries the *LandRover* marque. Yes, we've seen the L/Rs in Jason Bourne and James Bond films driven by secret service agents of MI6. I've been lusting for a pre-owned early 90s Landcruiser... but the gas mileage is nothing less to be desired. However, if I had the moolah, I'll buy the Benz UNIMOG 4x4 with the venerable 6 cylinder engine petrol and the Toyota Troopie. If you haven't seen one, try googling it and you'll be the only person on your block owning this Japanese pug. Happy motoring!!!
