1996 Toyota Land Cruiser 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

For years I had wanted a LC, I finally found a good used one. Had 190,000 miles but still looked great. Now have 210,000 and I have had no problems at all and it will go anywhere with absolute confidence. Love the styling, size, and quality. Fuel consumption is not too great but, hey; I knew that going in and it is still worth it, no worse than it's competitors. Looked at Tahoes, Land Rovers, Expeditions, and Armadas; the Landcruiser is light years ahead of them all. I plan to keep this vehicle forever.


Best Features

Styling, handling, ride, size, off-road capability (unbelievable).


Worst Features

cup holder is useless

Review

I love my truck. My previous SUV's were 1993 Range Rover County LWB, 1996 Range Rover 4.6 HSE, Nissan pathfinder. The LC is by far the best! Excellent traction in the snow. Deep Colorado Snow! Excellent on the highways, Drove it back and forth to michigan last summer and it was ideal! Roomy enough for a family of 4. Comfortable enough for the grandma, and luxurious enough for the wife. This is one of the most well made vehicles in my opinion and I plan on never letting it go!


Best Features

the aggressive looks. The 4x4 capability and the full time 4wd


Worst Features

more bass in stereo. One touch up and down on all windows, (the rover had that!

Review

A little surprised at the maintenance costs. Bought this vehicle used at 78k miles. At 86k the catalytic converters had to be replaced, along with front knuckle seals. Fortunately, the dealer covered the converters under warranty. But the front knuckle seals were $1200! Now VSV valve is bad -- cost $400+.


Best Features

Size, tough appearance.


Worst Features

Fuel economy, emission system reliability? Power. Interior legroom.

Review

I have owned the LC for over 5 years and have over 140,000 miles on the vehicle. I've only had one problem with the starter at 120,000 miles. The LC is extremely well built and reliable.


Worst Features

Needs more power. The 6 cyl. is a little light for much hwy. driving.
