1997 Toyota Land Cruiser 4dr SUV 4WD


Bought used in 03/2006 with 145,000 miles. With lockers, condition, collector's edition had to purchase it. So far, no mechanical/major problems, but the AC stopped working. $900 to fix leak on condensor!! The reliability and the "guts" of the Cruiser are unmatchable. Snow, rain, no problem. Confident ride in such conditions. Fun to drive in nice fall weather. Windows roll all the way down. Huge sunroof. This vehicle will get you from point A to point B, no doubt. However, it'll cost you 11-13 mpg. The ownership expenses add up: insurance, oil, gas, tranny fluid, diff fluid, larger tires. Basically, if you have excess spare cash to burn, a very reliable, superb vehicle!

Best Features

Reliability. Torque on demand. Locking diff's. Ease of maintenance work. Third row seating. Ability to make the vehicle luxurious/clean/rugged. Nice aesthetics from outside.

Worst Features

Gas mileage. For new price circa $40,000, poorly executed interior!! More HP!! Better weight distribution. Heavy. Brakes sluggish. Rear window doesn't roll.
