1998 Toyota Land Cruiser 4dr SUV 4WD


After researching 3-row SUVs, I decided
on the Land Cruiser. Due to an
odd winter, I actually engaged the 4WD
all-wheel differential lock. The car
tracked flawlessly in the snow and ice.
The road presence approaches a car, but
you are aware that it's a truck frame
you are riding on. The engine is smooth
and quiet, yet seems slightly
underpowered for this vehicle's girth.
Surprisingly, this car suffers from
some rattles and squeaks. Thus far, the
heat shields needed adjusting
(rattled), the steering wheel
turnbuckle needed lubricating
(squeaked) and the underside still
rattles at idle. I experience 13/17 MPG.

Best Features

Seating position and comfort, back seat room, driving view, and sound system.

Worst Features

Tighter seals around the doors (surprisingly drafty in cold weather), thicker glass to reduce road noise, and redesigned heat shields to reduce rattling.
