Bought the Land Cruiser because I heard of its great reliability. Its been a good car, able to haul kids up skiing and having no trouble with snow. My problem is maintenance. It goes through brake pads and rotors. Second set of rotors in 80,000 miles. Also had the head gasket blow out in Vail, which was extremely expensive. Spent far more on maintenance on this car than any other I've owned, including my Fords. I leave it in the garage except to haul kids skiing. Think I got the LC Lemon.
