2006 Toyota Land Cruiser 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Every time I get in a drive this truck, I love being in it. This truck is smooth! Acceleration. Braking. Turning. Quiet. More than I hoped for. The 275 hp engine responds well at any speed. 7.83 zero to 60. Very comfortable. Decent gas mileage. 17 to 19 MPG. Best when driven 55 to 60. At 65 to 75 it gets 17. I'm 6'2+" 210. I can drive this for hours and not get sore. Just drove it through 15" of snow in our pastures in the beautiful Western Mountains of Maine, easy as a drive around the farm in summer. Impressive. I choose the '06 because of the 275 horse engine. Better acceleration than the 235 hp for earlier years.


Best Features

This truck is made for driver and passengers: smooth and comfortable. Great visibility. Sound system is sweet! Bluetooth very handy. Love the drop down tailgate. Solid. Cabin warms qickly in our already negative temps last weekend. Weather in Maine last year was 50 degrees at this time.


Worst Features

Toyota and very other auto maker should spend less time and money on gadgets and more on fuel efficiency. I'm a map guy, so nav systems are a waste of money, and no of use navigating the dirt roads in the mountains of Maine. Better rear cupholder would be nice. Separate rear radio/CD controls.

Review

I have a Mercedes S class, my wife's Land Cruiser is better built and rides nicer! It does have its problems, climate control does not work well. You can't control the rear climate from the front seat and it could use more power.


Best Features

Ride and build quality.


Worst Features

Make the controls more user friendly. Offer a larger v8 or turbo diesel.

Review

Overall generally pleased with this vehicle and hope it is as reliable as everyone says, but... After driving for a few months I am disappointed in the lack of some basic features one would expect in a $60K luxury SUV. Very basic and bland vehicle and becoming extremely dated in its offering. I have nicknamed it the dinosaur.


Best Features

Comfortable, smooth and reasonably powerful with good off road capability, solid build.


Worst Features

No memory seats, no rain sensing or one touch wipers, interior lighting poor and not controllable from dash, no high intenstiy self leveling head lamps, JBL sounds system poor at best, no third row heat vent?, seat backs and lumbar area do not heat, climate control system struggles.

Review

I purchased the long bodied 8-seater and although this car is no beauty to look at, it is the best car I've ever owned, and most certainly the best of my SUVs. Because it is a diesel powered car, the fuel consumption is much better than the gas models. It has great stability and efficiently corrects any tendency to sway in speedy curves. Design is extremely sturdy and strong but heavy acceleration is remarkably good. Service prices are quite reasonable. Rational design allows for very fast service and time/mileage between required service is highly competitive.


Best Features

Performance, both on and off road. Reliability, all body, motor and transmission elements are sturdy and seem built to last. Comfort is excellent except for air conditioning. Road holding is excellent. Sound isolation is excellent and allows full enjoyment of radio and CD player.


Worst Features

Air conditioning: although air conditioning is good for the first rows of seats and acceptable for the second, it doesn't reach the third row at all. Space for baggage: when all three rows of seats are in position very little space is left for luggage.

Review

I have a 2002 Landcruiser and absolutely love it. Traded my 2000 4 Runner for a2005 BMW X5. Turned in under the lemon law...fuel gauge never worked properly and it just stopped one day...BMW gave me a 2006 version but I could never get comfortable with it and kept watching to see if it would light up...check engine soon. After only 3,000 miles, I went back to Toyota and another Landcruiser. It is great on long trips, handles like a dream and have had absolutely no problems with my 2002 model. Reliability is number one to me being a single female.


Best Features

Everything about it. It is a wonderful vehicle


Worst Features

None except maybe better gas mileage but that probably is not possible
