2005 Toyota Land Cruiser 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
We purchased it in the summer of 2005 and have taken it on cross country trip, over endless NYC potholes and off road. It is smooth, refined, has great visibility and extremely comfortable front row seating. The engine, the shifting and all other mechanical features appear flawless.
Never had a single problem with it. Nothing. NB, I looked at Range Rovers (then $25k more) and the LX 470 (then $9k more). Looking now, used car value of the Range Rover is the same as the Land Cruiser and the LX 470 is only $2k more - so the extra cash would have virtually evaporated over time.
memory seats; more intuitive climate and audio controls. The GPS software seems to be lost more frequently than I'd like - but I haven't updated the software.
