2006 Toyota Land Cruiser 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
I have always wanted a Land Cruiser but never really had the need for a big SUV. I drove into a Toyota dealership with a friend, saw the only Cruiser they had on the lot and had to have it right then and there. It was beautiful and fully loaded. Now that I had a place in the mountains, I actually needed this thing. We use it to drive in the mountains and to and from our home in Florida.
The NAVI is extremely useful and the 4WD was a major consideration as was Toyota's reputation for quality. My wife liked the Bluetooth for her phone. Since we got it, she has parked her BMW 325 convertible and driven the Cruiser daily. She likes that "King of the Road" driving position.
Major gripe... I'd love "memory seats". My usual car is a BMW 545i and I must admit, I've become accustomed to the I- Drive and wish Toyota's Navi had it rather than touch screen which is a very long reach for the driver. It would also be nice to move the a/c fan to the dash.
