"Bought this Land Cruiser new. It was my second one. 15 years and 130000 miles later, it still drives like new. I have had to spend less than $1000 in unscheduled repairs in 15 years. It is bog slow and gets terrible gas mileage, but is virtually bullet-proof, and goes anywhere I need to go in any weather."

"I know, a car is not generally perceived as an "investment" but this vehicle breaks the rules. Yes, it was pricey at the outset but its comfort, durability, reliability and ability to remain current even after 10 years make it a standout! I haven't seen any features on the newer vehicles that make me feel outdated, I have navigation, a rearview camera and plenty of luxury! Nice, smooth drive, easy handling and I can cover any terrain without fear. That is why I call it the LandCrusher!"

"I have had this vehicle for almost a year; purchased it used with less than 90k miles. Ive tried to recondition it back to stock condition; new shocks, leather conditioner, all tuneups and factory maintenance. It is a comfortable truck to drive and gives you a feeling of safety due to its size. Gas mileage is poor, but I was expecting that. It is a reliable vehicle and inspires confidence in inclement weather. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone who is looking for an outstanding SUV that will keep you safe on the road and provide all the four-wheeling capability you could ask for."

"Love, love, love my Land Cruiser.I'm 5'2" and don't have a family so I mostly drive by myself, even though there is space for 7. Don't care, I feel safe and secure, here in Northern Michigan where everyone drives a truck or SUV and the deer are everywhere. I know this will likely be my last of 5 Land Cruisers, getting pretty pricey, even for this great vehicle, so I am thinking of a trade in but would like to drive it until it dies, maybe another 100,000 miles or so!!!!!"

"This is a great vehicle, it looks, drives and feels like a luxury vehicle but it can be used to carry your home improvement and gardening stuff, your camping or road trip necessities, or whatever! I love the additional two seats available in the back, not usually needed but handy when you want to carry up to 7 passengers - say for a mountain trip, snowboards etc. conveniently on the roof rack. This is an amazing vehicle, I call it the Land Crusher!"
