2007 Toyota Land Cruiser 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

After owning a 1999 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4x4 (which is a truely excellent mid-size SUV), I decided to splurge and buy the 2007 Toyota LandCruiser. Yes, it was alot of money, but it is great. I duck hunt with a group of friends and whenever it rains we leave their Suburbans at home because we know only my LC will make it through the mud and muck. Also, the clam shell trunk is great; sit on the fold down half to put on waders, while the fold up half provides shelter from the rain. I took off the running boards and ditched the 3rd row seats (which are worthless) to improve off-road ability and create more storage. Got stuck only once because I forgot how to lock the differential. Duh... Great SUV


Favorite Features

-Great 4x4 with locking differentials. -Relatively short wheelbase so it doesn't high-center like a Suburban. -Refined/comfortable ride, unlike a Tahoe. -Powerful engine. -Clam shell style rear door (see above). -Power windows that go UP with a touch. -Visibility. -Big, but easy to park. -Decent towing (with brake booster added). -Extremely reliable (unlike any Chevy, Ford, MB, Jeep, etc.). -Haven't had ANYTHING break after 4 years (knock on wood). -Good navigation system.


Suggested Improvements

-Allow access to "Destination" function of navigation system while moving (since some folks have co-pilots). -Ditch the 3rd row seats. -Ditch the CD-changer and cassette player, replacing with iPod charger/connection and single CD in-dash player. -Raise ground clearance. -Ditch the visor safety warnings and replace with instructions on how to operate the transmission to its maximum capabilities. -Sell with optional front winch.

Review

This is our first Land Cruiser and we truly love it. The quality of this vehicle is amazing. We feel very safe driving it. While the gas mileage is nothing to brag about, the Land Cruiser offers so much more...luxury with flawless quality and dependability.


Favorite Features

The ride is outstanding!


Suggested Improvements

No suggested improvements, but an interesting fact that many may not know this generation Land Cruiser is very popular overseas (Russia) and many are being bought up and exported. So if you have noticed that there aren't many used Land Cruisers available for sale, now you know why.

2007 Toyota Land Cruiser 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

A solid, reliable, comfortable vehicle that, while missing some of the fluff of similar vehicles, does everything pretty well. No electric parking brake, a simple key, a cable controlled shift lever, hydraulic suspension... simple controls that do the job, and enhance reliability. I've owned Range Rover, X5, and Cayenne, and it was nice to get back to basics. Hope the new one doesn't succumb to electronic complication.


Favorite Features

Simplicity of basic operation, including the nav, audio, climate control and Bluetooth. Rear seats are easy to fold, and it has a tailgate.


Suggested Improvements

Sat radio should be factory standard, better OEM tires, Xenon headlights.

Review

$64,000 was the price and I question why I layed down that much money for this vehicle. It is nice, don't get me wrong, but not even close to nice enough for this price...drove well in 10 minute test drive but wearing on my sense of value now after 7 months. Many missing features previously mentioned by other reviewers. Gas mileage is well below advertised range. Toyota should be embarassed to charge this much for this vehicle.


Favorite Features

Reliability, comfort


Suggested Improvements

Horrific gas guzzeler, missing several featues fully expected in this price category, handling is second rate, JBL premium sound not good.

Review

2nd LC. Traded 99 with 250K trouble free miles. Only repair was overpriced starter replacement. Previous LC saw blizzards and ice storms; routinely driven for hours in 115 degree desert. Not afraid to drive on forest roads where no other vehicles seen for hours at a time. Good vehicle for hauling lots of stuff. Great for seeing country from freeway and remote locations - not so great for being seen in trendy fashion. A bit overpriced - due in part to air suspension and navigation system. Bought 2007 because concerned new model will be more upscale. Ride is smooth and quiet for this type of vehicle. Had 2 4-Runners - LC has same reliability, more room.


Favorite Features

Size, practicality (other than price and gas mileage) and reliability.


Suggested Improvements

Offer hybrid.
