2001 Toyota Land Cruiser 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)
Iv'e owned 3 SUVs prior to the Land Cruiser, but this one has to be the most comfortable and refined SUV on the road. The handling and suspension are awesome, the quietness of the engine is amazing. The body style never looks outdated, always looks new. The controls are very easy to operate, offroad capabilites are far superior then any other SUV on the road, hands down. I've always wanted a Land Cruiser but the cost was out of my range. Now that I own one I will never go back to any domestic SUV. Yes it is a bit more expensive than other SUVs, and premium fuel is required, but believe me it's worth every penny.
My favorite feature has to be the navigation system, it has helped me so much in finding places its an incredible tool to have. The heated seats are awesome in the winter, they really do work .
Suggested improvements have to be fuel consumption, it's not really good on gas and the premium fuel requirement does not help. Other than the fuel issue it's an amazing SUV!
