One Owner and over 250K miles
By Paul Simon on
1993 Toyota Land Cruiser 4dr SUV 4WD
This has been great truck / SUV. I have never had any electrical problems that others may have experienced. I have 257,000 miles on it - original engine, water pump, starter and alternator. Engine and trans have never been apart. Regular maintenance keeps her running.
Solid front axle in the 91 - 97 (and earlier) Land Cruisers are hard to beat. I have no play in the steering wheel and she drives absolutely straight. Good stiff suspension. Engine is absolutely flawless and idles smooth.
Transmission was reprogrammed for '93 from the '91/'92 that used all 5 gears in the auto. '93 only uses 4 gears and does not no when to downshift at speeds between 10-25mph. Engine needed more horsepower for North America and hence the V8 solved that problem in '98.
