"I love this SUV. It is actually my second Land Cruiser. I also had a 2001 Land Cruiser. Both Land Cruisers were very, very reliable. Gas mileage isn't great, but after all it's a V8. I have not had a bit of trouble out of this vehicle. Through snow and inclement weather, I can always make it to work. It has never let me down. It starts without question. People have asked me to sell it. Not going to happen. You can't go wrong with this one. Well worth the money."
Pros: "Comfortable, fits all I need, extremely reliable"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I have had this SUV for 91/2 years and I love it. I am only thinking of selling it. I might not be able to part with it because it has been such a great car. When someone gets in my car they can't believe it is almost 10myears old."
"I bought this car in 2005 with 45K miles with the intention of keeping it forever. One hundred and fifteen thousand miles later it is still a great vehical. My husband and I have recently talked about me getting a new car and I don't want to. I am choosing to replace tbe leather, fix the bumper and take care of a few other cosmetic issues intead.
I love this car. It has the wear and tear of 3 children and my neglect. I haven't had any major problems. The body style it is nothing special. Sort of understated, which I like, but super high quality everything."
"Currently own a 2000 with 171,000 miles. Purchased with 71,000 miles. Before owned a 1996 that purchased with 60,000 miles and sold with 136,000.
Could not be more pleased with Landcruiser. Like the look and ride. Has been extremely dependable. Would highly recommend to people that want a rugged low maintenance vehicle for the long haul.
Only drawback would be the low gas mileage (15) and the CD player. Have replaced with original and have same problem-simply quits working."
"Even with 161000 miles, I would trust this vehicle on a cross country trip. Never had mechanical problems. Routine manitenance like changing the oil is all it even needed. Absolutely the best car ever!"
"Ever wonder why you NEVER see an advert for LC's? Well, I suppose it's because they don't need any press. Simply THE most reliable, durable, quality SUV on the market in it's class. I've lived in remote areas all over the world and LC's are consistently the corp. vehicle of choice in Africa, Asia, Middle East, South America...to name but a few. Yes, there are better SUV's out there, but for the money, nothing else comes close."
"After 10 years my Land Cruiser still looks and runs great. Never any maintenance problems. No repairs needed. Very comfortable. Excellent off road and on road performance through all kinds of weather and conditions. Expensive to buy, but well worth it."
"I have no complaints about this car. It is my favorite car I've ever owned. There is plenty of room for two carseats and someone else to sit in the middle row. The back seats fold up and can even be taken out when not in use. The back has so much room for groceries, pets, recycling, camping gear, etc etc etc. Drives AWESOME in the snow. Smooth ride otherwise- and so stylish. LOVE IT"
"After owning 26 other cars, I very deliberately bought my used 2000 LandCruiser because it's very practical and just won't die (even in hostile third-world countries, apparently). It's since survived long road trips, city commutes, nasty blizzards, scorching sun, heavy towing duty, and the less-than-kind driving style I acquired from racing school and exotics. At 120k+ miles, it has eaten only wear-parts (i.e., brake pads, wiper blades, and tires) and required some trivial, non-critical maintenance. I highly doubt I will ever succeed in killing this SUV; though a family friend did get bored with his after 160k miles."
"This is my second Land Cruiser and definately not my last. They might not be the best on gas but as far as comfort and safety they are at the top. Not to mention they are very pleasing to the eye as well. Whether on the highway or off road they are at the top of the list by far."
"This is the most comfortable SUV I have ever rode in. You can very easily forget it's a sport utility. Smooth, comfortable seats. the navigation system is helpfulm on a raod trip. I can't say enough, i drove this vehicle and it handles like a car. Stays tight tot the road even when cornering."
"I nicknamed my car "Scout" when I first got it because of the navigation system and its reliability. This is my second LC and it is a 2001 with 120000+ miles. Rides excellent, passengers and other drivers always comment on how it rides/drives smooth like a car. Yes it is a gas guzzler but the lack of need for repair and service more than makes up for this. Used it to tow my two large dogs and anything else I needed to lug. Dependable and tough. I plan to keep it and still buy another Toyota. Primarily routine maintenance since I've owned it. Built sturdy. I love this car, no trade-in for me!"
"I have owned my LC for 9 years... 128K miles and going strong... I LOVE my SUV and will keep it until it falls apart. I am constantly on the go with a full load of kids in tow... I feel save and secure in this vehicle. No major service expenses only routine maintenance. Well worth the price in the long run!"
"The Toyota landcruiser is the best looking, most reliable, best preforming SUV on the planet! It is the best off road SUV I have ever driven. Every part of the vehicle is of the best quality. It is a great SUV if you can handle the gas guzzling. 13 city 17 highway"
"My husband and I bought our Land Cruiser used two years ago. I have to say that in the two years that we have owned it we have never had a problem. It is a well built, wonderful vehicle. There is an area of opportunity with the gas mileage however."
"I have owned my 02 Cruiser for about 2 years. Most used cruisers are going to be well maintained, so used is the way to go. Typically if someone pays $65k plus for a car new, it will be taken care of. Nothing is more comfortable or reliable, but the fuel mileage is not good for a daily commuter. I use as our weekend family car, and get mid teens--price you pay for luxury I guess. If the recent rise in fuel price is going to break your budget, don't buy this car. This is a pretty heavy vehicle, and is AWD, so the fuel mileage will suffer. Buy one!"
"i have 2002 land cruiser and runs perfect !! i bought it low mileage but still runs like brand new car .
please everyone write the year of your car . milage is not important for this car cuz it lives for long time. anyone had fuel pump changed its totally normal for this car specially from 2000 - 2007 models . the deal should changed it for free anyway and change they have to change the fuel filter too , this is the only problem i had so far.
best car ever . i dont know about the new land cruiser 2008 5.7 V8 engine .anyone has it please write about your experince ."
"I love this car. I hate how much gas it uses. I bought it to haul stuff around and pull my two-horse trailer. It handles tow loads wonderfully- I don't even know the trailer is back there. Never had any mechanical problems with it at all. ONly a few minor electronic issues (moonroof, CD player, etc.)."
"I am on my second Land Cruiser, and would buy a third if Toyota would get a Hybrid model out.
My Land Crusier is my truck for pulling trailers and my Limo for a long trip. The ride is exceptional. I have 105,000 on this one and plan to put many more miles on it"
"The 2000+ LC features safety technology such as vehicle skid control and traction control. Performance is exceptional in winter conditions with all terrain tires. Brakes are impressive and long wearing for a large SUV. Excellent ground clearance and traction control for off highway travel.
These vehicles feature very heavy duty construction; more like a 3/4 ton than a 1/2 ton truck. They should last forever with a few items needing periodic maintenance. The engine has great torque and is extremely reliable.
The LC is the best value in used SUV's, hands down. I would not hesitate to buy one with over 100k miles and drive it another 100k."
