Reliable, but ergonomic problems
By Thorbro on


2001 Toyota Land Cruiser 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


I bought this after owning a 2002 Yukon. Although I would imagine the reliability of the Toyota is better, the need for premium fuel on top of dismal fuel economy is annoying. Contrary to what another reviewer wrote, there are very few places to put things on the console, so sunglasses and stuff just hang around the shifters. I am 6'3" and there is insufficient leg room for a vehicle this size. Also, the fold down rear seat does not disappear like in the Yukon, blocking 1 1/2 feet of space - can't sleep in back On the plus side, the traction control is amazing and saved us from a half- way spin-out in the snow last year.

Best Features

Reliable, nice style. Good traction control and smooth/quiet engine.

Worst Features

Better window buttons (hard to control). Telescoping steerwheel column (this is an option I think). More trays on console. Regular gas.
