I disagree about no heat in the third row! There are three vents in the ceiling for the third row. Look on e-bay and you will see. Even though the LC does not have all of those features, most people know the LC for dependability and reliability. period...

You are right historical dependability and reliability are great...but for $60K...I dunno but that seems like a lot of money to be sure the thing starts everyday.
The reality is that consumers expect more for this price. Perhaps that is why this vehicle will be completely redesigned in 2009 (2008 for the LX)....
maybe I am not so far off in my observations?

I agree. Lots of just as reliable vehicles out there for lots less. I was very dissapointed that the LX was not redesigned this year - it puts it way behind the rest of that pack.

Toyota should "idle" the current model LC in the US because the MSRP is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY out of line for what you get compared with others in this market.
The LC should be loaded with incentives, but according to Edmunds the only incentive is $500!!!!! Now that's just crazy. This has got to be the office joke at Toyota headquarters..."Let's see how many outdated Land Cruisers we can sell to nostalgia-blinded people."
In it's current form I'd say it's worth about $45K and that's a stretch. What ashame, it could be a nice SUV too.

I agree. I've been waiting too long for the new Sequoia to come out and I have offered $45k for an LC but no bites. The best price I have seen was for a new 2006 sitting on the lot (still) for $53k (this was a month ago).

Agree with you completely....unfortunately I bought the "office joke" a year back and the laugh is on me. I liked it in the test drive and was assured that this was the cats meow when it comes to suv nirvana...but the ownership experience has been well below expectation...I am appauled by the lack of some pretty basic features... looking forward to trading it in at some point on something more up to date.

Sounds like you're more in the market for a comfy "office commuter" to tool around town, rather than an all-purpose SUV. Cruisers were not designed for America's soccer moms. It's a shame the Cruiser's talents are being wasted & unappreciated.

im with you jamesbass1...
office jokers at the headquarters are the same people who cannot really afford a landcruiser to begin with. And people who wants a "sofa" on wheels are better off with one of those "wanna-be SUVs" like ones offered by caddilac, porsche, etc. etc. etc... TLC are really for the chosen few who really appreciates the beauty and power of the legend!
#73 of 90 You might want to ask Jim Press what he drives

He's the President of Toyota here and he drives a LC. It's not perfect, but why not trade it in on a RR, then tell us what you think Or just wait a bit longer for the new LC to come out.
