Cadillac of SUVs
By bougie on
2001 Toyota Land Cruiser 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)
This car was the most expensive I've bought. A good replacement for a Chevy Suburban. I was initially disappointed with the booming bass of the sound system. At 30,000 mi they said the clicking noise wasn't a problem, but when warranty was out, it was recommended that the cracked manifold be repaired. Most recently a $1700 air conditioning repair, at 54k miles. All in all, I'd like a new one. Had 18 mpg on the hwy and felt secure driving in winter and great on long trips.
Classy, quiet. No signs of body problems after 6 years in the snow belt. Pretty good turning radius for a big SUV.
Needed better sound system for a $50-60,000 auto. Suspension and ride is a bit soft, but its nice when hitting big cracks in the roads in this area.
