Summary:

Still an ICON!

Faults:

#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

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.
