2003 Toyota Land Cruiser 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Solid all around sums it up. Capable off-road and a pleasure on-road with room for the kids, dog and all the stuff that goes with them. I traded a Land Rover for this car and never looked back. I've driven it in Blizzards, on the beach, off-road and plenty on-road. Never once was I concerned that we wouldn't make it. I plan to keep my TLC for as long as she's willing to serve though I may buy the 2016 model and give my current TLC to my 3 year old.


Favorite Features

Build quality and utility (in the true sense of the word).


Suggested Improvements

Maybe a little more horse power.

Review

When we were looking for our next truck we like at several vehicles including the Lincoln Navigator, Cadillac Esclade, Hummer H2, and the Land Rover Range Rover. The Landcruiser offered the best of everything and is the most depend and reliable vehicle we have ever owned. This truck gives you an abosoulte sense of security. I have driven down streets with 3ft of snow (unplowed) without have to use any of the differentials or low-range settings of the Landcruiser. This is the best vehicle you could own, its almost like a Japanese Hummer!


Favorite Features

My favorite features are its excellent build-quality, go anywhere capability,powerful V8 engine, Toyota reliability, and its sense of security.


Suggested Improvements

The third row seat could be roomier and the gas mileage is good at all.

Review

Don't get me wrong, toyota makes a hell of a car but I believe paying $60,000 for 235 HP is not too great of an idea. I would reccomend buying a Land Rover Range Rover because you get more power and comfort in approximately the same price range, and best of all BMW makes it. Whatever you do, don't buy a Lexus LX 470 because it is the same as the land cruiser, except the keyless entry system opens the rear hatch automatically for $10,000 extra!


Favorite Features

Mechanical Reliability


Suggested Improvements

More power needed for such a large SUV

Review

Just purchased one after 15 years of waiting. Worth the wait. Drove a Yukon before this and the only thing the Yukon was better at was interior space. Fit and finish are excellent. Engine, while not the most potent, has enough torque for smooth merging and lane changes. No regrets


Favorite Features

Peace of mind reliabilty, minimal interior noise, driveablity


Suggested Improvements

Improved sound system, power lumbar for passenger seat, quirky shifter
