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


Review

This is our second LC. The first was a 1999 we bought in 2001 with 88k on it and we put 285k more on it. NOT ONE ISSUE. Bought this 2007 model in 2011 with 77k on it and didn't even blink. These are built like a brick [non-permissible content removed]. The only difference I have seen between the 1999 model and the 2007 model is they went from glass headlights to plastic and the interior leather is not as robust. Other then that, not one problem or issue. We use it as a daily driver. As for off-roading, we utilize the LC's very capable off road 4WD system as we have mountain land and use it to get thru mud, snow, etc. If you have the chance to get one, do it. You will not regret it. Much better on road and off road then any other SUV we have looked at. Actually looked at the newer LC's but don't like the style as it looks basically like every other SUV from Toyota (Highlander, Sequoia, etc.). Plus the newer LC's have permanent 3rd row seats that you can't remove.

Review

The best SUV on the road if what you're after is safe, reliable, comfortable performance. None of the fancy features (aside from maybe the AHC), aluminum exterior trim, or status badges of other SUVs in it's class but the vehicle to buy if you want to make a smart purchase that will always deliver safety, reliability and comfort all while maintaining it's resale value better than any other vehicle on the road. Join the LC club, you won't be disappointed.

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


Best 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.


Worst Features

-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.


Best Features

The ride is outstanding!


Worst Features

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.

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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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