headgasket headaches

by Smarter Than Before from Left Coast | July 24, 2012

These vehicles are lemons, all of them. Cut your losses and sell it to some kid who will roll it over trying to climb a four foot tall rock.

Outstanding offroad vehicle

by Wheeler from North Carolina | January 18, 2009

The FZJ80 series Land Cruisers were the last of the solid front axle Cruisers sold in the US. With optional factory lockers, 1 ton axles and the ever reliable 1fze engine they are considered by many the most capable 4x4 Toyota ever sold in the US. 1997 being the last year this series was produced, they had the most luxurious appointments and the peak of technology, such as the electronically controlled A343F automatic transmission. The 40th anniversary models also available in 1997 came with unique paint colors, two tone leather and automatic climate control. Not all Land Cruisers came with the sought after factory equiped front and rear lockers. A quick way to tell if a vehicle is equiped with them is to check the dash to the left of the steering wheel. A factory dial type switch that says "Diff Lock" indicates it is. This switch is not to be confused with the more common "Center Diff Lock" switch usually found in the center dash area.

bullet proof suv

by mr t from San diego CALIFORNIA | February 15, 2008

If you are looking for a SUV that all you need is Gas, Tires, Brake pads and no electronics this is it. I owned many many cars from Mercedes, Audi, BMW and other but the Land Cruiser is in a league on is own...THE MOST REALIABLE CAR EVER....That why many many off road lovers always look for this incredible Model and year...because they are BULLET PROOF 300k 400k no problem.

A great vehicle if you like 1950's technology!

by No toyotas! from Denver | September 25, 2007

Gutless and gas guzzling! Primative suspension design! Terrible handling and ride. 15 mpg and it can barely get out of its own way! Big outside and bulky. High stepin to a bland interior. There are many better and safer vehicles than this!

best suv for the money!!!!!!!!!

by skoal from Washington, DC | September 30, 2006

This is the best of the suv class...regardless of the suvs age. This suv's style is always going to be the gold standard to which others hope to be. The 97 was the best year for the landcruiser...before it turned into a mini van like suv. This thing is like a 4runner on roids...but it also is very posh.
