Best car I have owned

1997 Toyota Land Cruiser 4dr SUV 4WD


I bought my LC new in 1997. It is the BEST car I have ever had. It now has 276,000 miles and I have not had to hardly do any repair work, other than oil changes (I do it every 3,000 miles), brakes and tires. I was told this 6 cylinder engine should be trouble free for 500,000 miles or more, so my high mileage so far has not scared me. The only things that have given me trouble was the automatic car antenna and one of the little gadgets that extend out to electronically bend the front back seat. It does 15-16 mpg of regular fuel. The newer land cruisers with V8 do 14mpg with premium fuel. I recommend this car, if you can get one with 100-150,000 miles it's a better buy than a new car.

Best Features

Reliability. Even at 275,000 miles it still feels the same way as the day I bought it new. Solid built. Every bolt is massive.

Worst Features

Cupholders are non existent in this LC.
