You are in the Toyota Land Cruiser
What is this discussion about?
Toyota Land Cruiser, SUV

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.
#479 of 5282 Service Question
Feb 07, 2001 (10:18 am)
Hello fellow "cruisers"!! I hope that someone out there can advise me on the cost of getting my 1997 TLC serviced. I'm approaching 90K and I'm not having any problems, I recieved a card in the mail from where I brought my vehicle and they're saying that I need to have it serviced. I just called and was told that the price of servicing my LC would be around $450.00. First of all, is this fair and would it be worth this. I will do it if I feel that it's needed, but I really would hate to pay for something that I don't need. Any advise would be appreciated.
#480 of 5282 PLASTIC WIND DEFLECTOR
Feb 07, 2001 (11:52 am)
Does anybody here knows why they change the metal rear wind deflectors on the 2001 LX470/LC to Plastic/fiberglass?
Your comments are greatly appreciated.
DWRICHA Answer: About your service question on the 97LC.
Go to your owners manual and check what is the service schedule for 90K or talk to the service department.
Transmission oil change
Differential oil change
Fuel injectors clean
Adjust diferential shaft
check your wires houses belts etc.
These are just the basic items. You will be surprise how much you can save in this doing it your self items. I will recommend you doing the transmission and differential oil change by a service tech or dealer.
I keep my cars in excellent shape following this basic rule trouble free and I save a ton of money. Remember a TLC is no different than any other car out there. Some times people take you for a ride just because you have a Land Cruiser just like owning a boat and going to the dealer they get you for everything they can.
Your Land Cruiser will have no problem going in to the 200,000 miles range if you fallow this.
Hope this helps.

The Landcruiser is NOT being discontinued. Good heavens, were I to type "Cliffy wears green shorts on Sundays" would that make it so just because it was here!?
Landcruiser isn't being discontinued, and they are even bringing out a 2nd Landcruiser "retro" model in the next 18 months.
PS: you can cut and print that because it's true. But, I do not know Cliffy's undershorts color on Sundays.
