2001 Toyota Land Cruiser 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)
The TLC is the standard by which all SUVs are judged. Reliability, comfort, safety and durability for the long haul are superior to any other vehicle I've owned. The overall integrity of the TLC outweighs others in its class. We moved out of the minivan market into a large SUV to satisfy our family needs - performance & safety were tops on our list. After initial sticker shock, cost comparisons revealed the reasons behind the price tag. Driving confirms the value everytime we travel the Autobahn or Autostrada.
The drive is smooth, the ride quiet, sound system better than any home stereo, and the mid-row bench seat is as comfortable as the front bucket. Every accessory is reliable and routine maintenance (oil, filters, lubrication) easy. Defrost/defog are quick & effective despite Wx conditions.
Install a spare lightbulb holder in the glove box. Enlarge the cup holders in front to accommodate standard-sized, ceramic coffee mugs.
