    Brand new Land Cruiser rolled

    Above question was asked about GPS tracking. The GPS always knows where you are. Most of modern auto GPS systems have saved back log of data and route info. If the overall system contains a cellular call out option it can report Location information in case of accident that triggers any safety...

    2017 200 LC Steering Wheel Leather issues

    Woolite in water will help keep clean and not harm leather and might be something you already have around the house.

    Cruiser Shopping....2014 vs 2016

    It was already said but 2016 head lights are best headlights I have owned in any vehicle. Did run home from parents on Friday night about 100+ miles in Fog and all I can say is that alone worth extra money. I like my 8 speed but never had 6 speed so can't compare. I had TSB update done on my 8...

    How long a 2 x 4 have you fit in your 200?

    10 feet is about it I think based on 4" pvc front to back. If you have factory roof rack with factory 2 cross ribs. Just tie down on top of that you should be good to go.

    5000 Mile Report

    I am assuming that you stored it for winter cause you don't want to mess it up as in rust, accidents, etc... as opposed to you do not trust it for winter driving. Any way glad you are happy with your purchase.

    Considering first time LC purchase - need advise

    My guess is dealer is asking 28k. I would offer $24k and work from that point. Note I am just guessing based on 500mile from my location in TX search of 2006 to 2010 models but all had nearly or double miles you are looking at and they were asking 20 to 24k. Good luck

    2016 LC needed pads and rotor turned at 45K for front. I did not own it for first 14.4K. The rear rotors need a turn at 47k pads were ok. This is by far the worst mileage of any vehicle I have ever owned for brake work by more than double the mileage. However as I did not own the LC in first...

    2016 LC pulling 3500lb boat. I run with PWR button on and set for 6th gear. I am able to use radar cruise and normal cruise no issues. Done this for 235 miles multiple times. So overall weight and terrain may play a factor.

    I test drove a Land Cruiser today - first drive in one since 1977 - EDIT: On order

    Simple Example I went to NTB web site. Nitto Terra Grappler G2 is $875 for 4 LC (285/60/18, note $915 for higher load index) and $647 4Runner (265/70/17, note $819 for higher index load). While not a giant the spread is $225 on high end and $90 on low end. Just a cost that across the...

    Would you buy a 200 again?

    YES I have a 2016 purchased used in 2018. I would buy another 200 if something unexpected happened to mine. The plan is to keep it at least 20 years. 2 years down 18 to go.

    I test drove a Land Cruiser today - first drive in one since 1977 - EDIT: On order

    If you are having second thought on price what I going to say is not likely to help. Cost of ownership for LC will be more than your 4runner. Insurance is going to cost more. Tires are going to cost more. Oil change if going to cost more 8 quart to I imagine 5. The amount of Gas to go 1 mile is...

    Outdated LC's

I have driven the...

    I live north of Austin and monthly travel to Beaumont area east of Houston. I mostly listen to radio and I can say with certainty that standard AM/FM signal sounds blah. Quite a few stations that I listen to transmit in HD. I can tell when I loose the HD signal with out looking at display just...
