I have a 1999 TLC bought new with 116,000 miles. Tires 55,000 and 110,000. Additional another $1,800 in repairs, including changing all belts and hoses at 105,000 miles. Oil changes every 3,000. Planned to keep in 10 to 12 years, now may see 200,000 or more miles and 15 to 20 years. During this time I have has four new Mercedes Benz cars. The last one a 2007 R 320 cdi diesel which gets 23-24 mpg city and as much as 27 mpg on one measure tank of fuel in city driving. This compares to 13-15 MPG for the TLC. Wish Toyota would invest in bringing a diesel to the US. The TLC should be a good vehicle through plus 200,000 miles. In the first 116,000 mile the MPG have not declined. It drives like a car. Handles very nicely. We like the MB R class diesel, but I love the 1999 TLC. Best $55,000 I ever spent. Though the MB line up of diesel engine SUVs is compelling.

I think the 2008 LC has all the features you just mentioned if you buy the upgrade package. That puts the price at just over $71,000.
#84 of 90 looking at a 03 TLC with 38K

I am looking at a 03 with 38K miles, any suggestions or specific items to look at? I think pricing will be around $22K. Pictures show very clean, I saw several postings with concern over the electronic navigation-has anyone had problems with this? I currently have a z71 tahoe with 150K, I am looking for a dependable SUV at a decent price that will last me to 150K easily...

So has anyone bought a new Land Cruiser recently? I still see quite a few 2008 left-overs and I'm wondering if any one has scored a deal on one recently.

Just getting in the mix now.
08 LC with $72K sticker. Low so far is $61500.
09 LC with $74K Sticker. Low so far is $63900.
Never thought id see the day these discounted that much.
Depreciation of the 08 no matter as i plan on driving for a long time.
I'll see how much they are sweating as the end of month is Thursday.

Can you tell us where you found those great prices on the 2008 and 2009 Land Cruisers? Apparently, there is $4000 factory to dealer cash on the 2008's, but not the 2009. As it is more than half way through the 2009 model year, I am wary about going with a 2008 if it is not going to save much money.

I made the deal on a 09 LC in the Philly area. Final price was $62k.
Could have got a 08 for a little less but the inventory of 08 was small and the color I wanted was not avail.
I was dealing with 3 dealers, and in typical dealer fashion, the two that I did not use "said" they could have done the $62K deal I got.
I would think you may trim a couple of bucks more if you play your cards right. LC's are not flying off the lots these days.

Thanks for the posting!! What was the MSRP on the vehicle that you purchased for $62,000? It seems that the MSRP's range from the high 60's to as much as $73,000. I am curious as to how much you got off the MSRP.

Total Sticker price was $72,954 plus I had them add the Sat Radio as well which would put it well over the $73K number.
Best of Luck.
