You are in the Toyota Land Cruiser
What is this discussion about?
Toyota Land Cruiser, SUV
Feb 06, 2001 (11:51 am)
Even though the topic whether Toyota will continue the Land Cruiser seems to pop up every once in a while, I am convinced that Toyota will continue to sell the LC since the Sequoia is mainly made for the US. The current LC model has been on the market with "minor" changes for close to ten years. Has anybody heard of possible major changes for the model year 2002?
Thanks for your response,
#470 of 5282 Power Antenna

In answer to the question about the power antenna, I just replaced the mast/cable assembly in my 98 after it snapped. TLC has about 55K miles and frequent daily use. Replacing is a little tricky. First, unscrew the chome ring at the antenna base using a special tool or a nice rag and pliers. (I used the rag/pliers route carefully and left no marks.) Remove front right wheel/tire and then the inner-fender trim. You have to disconnect a few more things than you'd like to get the antenna cable off but once out, it's easy to take apart the spool to remove the broken cable which you'll find wound up inside. Put everything back together,reinstall in the TLC. Now, have someone nudge the antenna down button while you feed the new cable mast assembly down from the top. Once you've fed it all in, put the chrome ring back on and you're done.
Hope this helps.

Having used a Valentine One for three years now - in autos as well as mounted on my Ducati touring sport - there is no superior product. The range is very impressive. BTW, mounted behind/under the small windshield of my bike, the unit "sees" around/through me to detect radar approaching from behind! Expensive, but excellent protection.

With regards to my purchase. Yes it was on open MSO vehicle; meaning it had never been titled. The list prise was 58472. Options included Third rear seat/climate control, power quarter windows. Gold trim package; Extra Mile Option package D. Color: White w/Oak.
Mileage: 10,000. However, my vehicle was bought through the Toyota Auction in Texas. Most of the vehicles are lease cars with a few like mine that were driven by a Toyota employee (not a dealership) in the Gulf States region. So the price I paid (44,000+) would not be fair to compare to a dealer's price. I believe that this vehicle has an invoice in the area of $51-$52,000. Hope this helps.

From one of the other boards:
#18 of 18 The Land Cruiser is definitely being discontinued!! by krisko Feb 04, 2001 (11:23 am)
This is as close to fact as it can be, info from Southeast Toyota in Jax. The fact is that the LC is eating into Lexus sales, the Sequoia is eating into the LC's market share. Bottom line, Lexus will sell the $65,000 SUVs, Toyota will sell the $40,000 ones. The Land Cruiser will still be available for other parts of the world. 2001 is the last model year for the Toyota Land Cruiser here in the states.

Last week I went into a local dealer to "look". He really wanted to unload a new 2000 Land Cruiser. He was into the $47,000 range by the time I left. Options included: Third rear seat/climate control, roof rack, towing hitch, running boards, hood protector,auto dimming/temperature displaying mirror, and wood trim. Color: Champagne Pearl with oak interior.
Hope this helps.

Funny, I have been told by every person I know at Toyota that the LC will not be discontinued. Where did you get this rumor?

From the Toyota Sequoia vs Toyota Land Cruiser forum. I copied it as it was printed.

Thanks for the info drumbold.
ssolomon -- I thought I remembered you posting that your vehice was pre-driven but untitled. Thanks for the confirmation. Congrats on your purchase.
2cruisers -- I would still be interested in hearing what options, color and price you negotiated in your deal. I am stalled in negotiations and would appreciate any info ASAP.
