Bought a land cruiser w/out test drive! Was a Toyota after all. Two years later bought my 1996 lx 450. I'm still driving it after 299,000. Everything on this vehicle seems to last. Just replaced an alternator. A bit of p/s fluid leak. I check the engine oil regularly (leak? ). Have never saw its limits, in any kind of weather or load. Dependable. Comfortable. Excellent performance on back roads and highway. Useless cup holders though. Difficult for reaching the spare tire and the jack not enough for this truck. Over all is an excellent truck. My son wants to drive it now and this is the reason I am here looking for another one to adopt. Hopefully after reading this the seller won't raise the asking price.
Bought this vehicle preowned; it's been very reliable and I still get compliments on it even though it is a decade old now. The problems it has had have not been very significant. The interior build quality is as good as I have ever seen; except for wear on the driver's seat, it looks almost brand new on the inside.
I bought a 97 with 48,ooo miles onit. I was planning on a landcruiser, butall the 96 and 97 were at 60k miles plus for 21 to 23k. I got mine for 25 including tax. the thing is awesome and in 10 years my kids can take it to college. all other suvs can chase this classic. problems to date: antenna, e brake calipers.
Bought the SUV used with 60,000 miles, now have over 130,000. This SUV is outstanding in the snow, got thru many snow storms in Vermont safely. Not one major mechanical problem, normal oil changes, tires, brakes. Had the transmission oil changed and emissions repaired @ 120,000 miles. All electronics work excellent. Superb stereo. Some wear on leather front passenger seat. Expect to put on over 200,000 miles without any problems. Reliable, safe great SUV.
