Author's Product Rating: 20 Recommended: No 

Pros: Looks Good, Good 4x4 Performance...If that's all that matters.
Cons: Unreliable, head gasket, alternator, starter, leaky windshield etc.
The Bottom Line: Be careful buying this car...have it throughly gone over TWICE!

Just bought a used 96 Land Cruiser, wanted one forever, and finally got it. It had 74k on it, it now has 80k. Since I've had it (6 months); - Head Gasket Blew $1400 - Windshield Leaked $60 - Alternator dead $410 - Idler Pulley $60 And now, ... read more

Pros: Ride, luxury, security, safety
Cons: Gas mileage, price of routine servicing

I've had a 1988 Landcruiser for the past ten years. My wife has been secretly jealous because I've never had any problems with it, unlike her Mercedes. We finally traded her old car in for a '96 and now I'm the jealous one. It rides like a ... read more

Pros: good power, luxury, nice sound system, great looks
Cons: pricey, not great off road

I've owned a 1996 Land Cruiser for the past three years, we bought it used with only a few thousand miles on it as another vehicle to compliment our Mitsubishi. Although slightly pricey, buying it used was a great idea, it dropped 10k off the new price, ... read more

Old reliable four wheel drive

Author's Product Rating: 50 Recommended: Yes 

Pros: All terrain driving

As a loyal Toyota car-owner, the Landcruiser is my most prized possession. The Landcruiser is, in my opinion, the best you can find in off-road driving. It is particular impressive in its ability to traverse uneven, rocky terrain, while ice or snow ... read more

Pros: SIZE, DEPENDABILITY,
Cons: GAS MILAGE
After owning a pathfinder, classic Range rover, Newer Range Rover 4.6, and a 97 4Runner, I would have to say that the Land Cruiser is in it's very own class. That class marked "Dependable". I bought my LC with 125,000 miles on it and it is now ... read more

Pros: Style, handling, comfort, solid feel, quiet interior
Cons: gas mileage is poor, but you save on lack of repairs
I purchased my 95 LC with 126k already on it for $15,000. That was three years and 60k miles ago. I love this vehicle! It simply does not break, have had to make only minor repairs and those were mostly easy enough to do myself. I love the widebody looks ... read more
