Land Cruiser: The GodFather of all SUVs
April 3, 2019
In the 1990s I owned the 100 series Land Cruiser and it was a phenomenal SUV for the desert and mountain terrain. The LC never betrayed us but was the strongest, sturdiest and most reliable vehicle I have ever owned. Presently I own the 2008 LC 200 series and though it has a new design and many upgrades, it maintains its reputations for durability, reliability, strength, off-roading and the largest engine in its class. No other SUV can be compared to the Land Cruiser for the status quo it has achieved in all these years. This is the vehicle that the UNO uses for all their outreach work around the world. What an endorsement! However, it does not have fancy logistics and décor but something robust and long lasting. Anything between 200K-300K miles is fair game before any repairs begin happening but I have learned from many owners that it can easily run anywhere between 500K-600K miles before anything major happens. Above all this is one of the very few vehicles in the Toyota line-up that are still made, assembled and created in JAPAN. That tells the entire story.
