1999 Toyota Land Cruiser SUV 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

145K, engine/tranny never skips a beat, paint still looks 95% new, interior indestructible, tackles anything asked of it and at 10 years old, people still comment on how incredible it looks and can't believe it's a 99:) The fuel economy is poor but I'm guessing if you're looking at the Cruiser, you're more concerned with safety, ride quality, dependability, and bring me anywhere and return me safe-ability. It is, for lack of better wording, an incredible vehicle.


Best Features

The engine w/Flowmaster and K&N romps with the best of them and will take quite a few cars by surprise. Seats are soooo comfortable and if it can't climb over it, it will mash it with its nearly 3-ton weight.


Worst Features

Suspension is a little soft compared to the 05+ models and there were no options for machine gun mounts, lol.

Review

Comfortable on long highway drives yet will cover just about any bad terrain. Great vehicle in the snow. Plush interior. I bought this car with about 30K on the odo and now have about 100K. Still feel like new. Very few problems other than 02 sensors (2) and a couple of minor things. The power antenna tends to break but is cheap to fix. Stereo is not the greatest. Wood interior trim discolors with time. Beware, though, that if you do have a mechanical problem parts are outlandishly expensive. A new master key from the dealer runs $250.


Best Features

Handling in bad weather.


Worst Features

Third row seats are a major pain to stow and deploy. Mileage is shamefully bad.

Review

I bought my 1999 Land Cruiser brand new with 4 miles on the odometer. This is the fifth Land Cruiser which I've owned; my previous Land Cruisers were: 1989, 1991, 1993 and 1996 models. My current 1999 Land Cruiser had 128,000 miles on it and every components function perfectly, it is a very reliable and good built 4x4. I've taken my Land Cruiser on many outing occasions with friends in off-road driving and it beat others 4x4 including Jeep and Range Rover models.


Best Features

Strong V-8 engine as compared to previous in-line 6 Land Cruiser engine. The best 4x4 available and solidly built. All original parts are still functioning.


Worst Features

Stronger front and rear bumpers. A Ford pick-up rear ended my Land Cruiser and its front end collapsed totally and had to be towed away. My rear tail gate was dented a little bit but it is still drivable. No damages to other parts.

Review

Waited a long time for an L/C. Finally got it for my 40th b-day. Traded LS 400 - also awesome. The L/C is the best vehicle I have ever owned. Total confidence with this L/C. Bought with 65K, now @ 110K and you can't hear it run. Best vehicle for a family, kids, dog, anything. Just put new shocks on it and it rides like new. I wish it had a little more towing capacity as I occasionally tow a 6500# Airstream. Love this truck... it was worth the wait!


Best Features

It can go just about anywhere. Very solid build... no rattles. Great visibility.


Worst Features

Maybe a little more power and mileage... can't have it all.
