Tough, capable, honest and addictive
So far, very little. The air conditioning needed to be re-gassed and a leaking hose fixed.
I'll be replacing the glow plugs this weekend as the cold weather is showing up inadequate pre-heating.
The usual little items like blown bulbs, fuses, etc.
The performance and comfort marks I've given this car are bearing in mind what it was designed for. By sports car standards, it's slow. Off road though, it can't be beaten.
The cabin is very spacious, the ride is excellent for an old truck and people are regularly stunned by what it can tackle off road.
The mechanicals are TOUGH. Given regular maintenance, there's no reason it can't be going strong after another 20 years. I intend to keep mine for many years to come!
This model Land Cruiser is as honest as a vehicle gets. It doesn't promise what it can't deliver. Mine now has differential locks front and rear and is virtually unstoppable off road, while still delivering amazing fuel economy...12l per 100kms around town and off road!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
