Best of the Best

2000 Toyota Land Cruiser 4dr SUV 4WD
I've had two Land Cruisers a 1997 and 2000, and with out any doubt, the Toyota Land Cruiser is the overall best SUV made today. I sold the vehicles when they had around 100k miles on them. However, I could have kept them for another 100k. Both vehicles were dealer maintained and they never had to do anything other than the routine scheduled maintenance. Everything about the vehicles was quality not a cheap part to be found inside or out. It is no wonder why the UN uses these vehicles around the world for relief efforts rather than the cruddy Land Rover Discovery anymore. By the way, I had a 96 Discovery SE7 and the damed thing started costing me $2000 per repair twice a year after 50k miles.
Quality built engine, interior, and drivetran. Can carry a lot of gear, even with five passangers. This vehicle is fast, it has the same enging found in the Lexus LS 400. The trans shifting fromgear to gear is butter smooth. It is a big SUV but rides and handles like a luxuary sedan.
For a vehicle this size the MPG was OK. On average about 15mpg. In the 20mpg range would really help. Also the brakes are OK but can be improved.
