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.

Talents? I am still searching for these...

I am considering a 2002 TLC with "the works" and 65K miles. They want ~$27K (~$29 after all the paperwork, tax,etc. It looks mint condition inside and out. How many miles can I expect to get from this model--i.e., what is typical?
Mar 23, 2007 (8:28 pm)
I've got an '02 with 53K on it. No issues at all, except replacing an '02 sensor. As with most any used vehicle YMMV, but I've got a friend with a '99 and over 100K on the clock. No issues either.
If you've got service history, carfax, etc. then probably should be fine for several more years. Nice to have option is Nav

Many thanks. Yes, it has Navigation and a whole host of frills that I never considered useful, but reliability makes it worth the price.

Do you know the service history? A well maintained cruiser will run longer than you will probably keep it, but if the service hasn't been done on time you may end up paying for it down the road. Has the 60K service been done? If not you should factor in the price of that.
