A reliable off road workhorse

Seats seven perfect for family and friends off road trips. Very reliable on and off road. Nice gusty engine and cool diesel revs. We hired a 100 at Fraser Island with family and friends and Fraser's tricky, bending, curving, and wet terrain, this land cruiser handled it with ease. Normal land cruisers are quite uncomfortable but the 100 was OK. It was fun to drive off road moving up and down like a Cruiser boat which is probably how they got their name. This is a great car and I recommend a second hand Show details

Yayla yolunda asfalt konforu

uzun yolda yorulmak mı asla ,şehir içinde çok güvenli ve kesinlikle geri getirir sizi endişe etmeyin... zamanında bakımlarını yaptırın (yetkili servis)ve 700.000km kullanın.. 4.2td vx100 2006 aracımı seviyorum keşke aynı kalitede sıfır km si yeniden üretilse... söylenecek çok şey var ama hepsi güzel şeyler land cruiser için değer.. Show details

Landcruiser 100 diff lock

My LC 100 centre diff lock keeps engaging by itself, I have had it to an auto elec but he couldn't find out why, he did say after they got it out of lock by reversing, they were playng with it and turned the radio on and the diff lock engaged, I drove it home and the lock came on again, I looked under the bonnet for the obvious but could not see anything strange, then the door lock stopped working, went out the next day, disconnected the battery cleaned the terminals and put it on a charger, later reconnected the battery, started it, pressed the lock button and it disengaged, but when I put the radio on it went back into lock, the alternator gauge does not appear to move when I rev the engine, any suggestions please Show details

The best vehicle I’ve ever had

I bought my land cruiser when I sold my 2017 navara as I got a new 2020 highlux for mahi.

I bought a cheap v8 100 series for 14k to dunk in the ocean while launching my boat of the beach.

After towing my boat the first time I realised it towed my boat so much better than the new turbo diesel lux.

I still use it as my boat launcher but now it is also our tow vehicle for the caravan and our family get away car due to the seats that feel like your are in a lazy boy and the amount of space.

It absolutely sucks but gas and since getting extractors and high flow cats my foot had gotten 4x as heavy due to how good it sounds!

I will never sell my beloved lands she’s just to reliable I can’t fault her at all. Show details

Cruiser of choice

Despite my vehicle now being 16 years old, it’s still one of the most comfortable cars I’ve ever driven. Add to that the wondrous burble of the exhaust and acceleration when you need it, I can’t see myself changing cars for some time. Yes, there are some modern niceties that newer vehicles might provide, but the replacement vehicle for mine in 2021 is over $100k which I just can’t justify (or afford!). Vehicle tows a 16’ Jayco with ease, and climbs the sand dunes without a problem. Minor servicing is done by me and everything is easy to get to. Show details

Does everything it’s asked and it’s so reliable

I own the diesel non turbo 1HZ motor in a 105 Series Landcruiser after previous owning an 80 series and 200 series V8 petrol I must say the 105 series is my favourite so far. it’s a 1998 with about 225,000kms manual transmission. Things don’t break but they do wear out over time so just factor that in. Being a diesel it’s reasonable mileage generally getting between 12-13L per 100kms with a mix of city country driving. It’s no rocket but it’s not designed to be. Drive it like a truck eg don’t thrash it everywhere maintain it and it will last a long time. Show details

Had this car 18 years and it’s been brilliant

Owned this car since new in 2003. It’s been taken care of, but the build quality has resulted in it being almost in brand new condition after all that time. Have never had an issue with it. Only tyres and battery replaced. Comfortable. Reliable. Capable. Only issue is fuel economy around town is a bit steep - 18l/100km Show details

I have a 2001 105 petrol

So simple this truck, better than todays modern things. I use it every day and i do all the work myself, its that simple to work on. They are heavy on fuel, but its to be expected with 2.5 T to push along. Oil and trans fluid changes are so easy to do as is the plugs. All in all, and not its never been off road, just used for towing, you could find a better vehicle to own.

This is the 50th Anniversary model in the limited Aqua colour, they only made 500.

Plenty of room of all the family, we have 6 kids and enough room for them.

Cheap to service and parts easy to get.

Reliable top quality Toyota equipment.

Great car

Its a great car - we upgraded from an 80 series to the 100 series and it was like going from a pushbike to a Mercedes.

Its drive well, not too rough. We have all terrain tyres so its probably a little noisier than a stock standard cruiser.

Its a diesel, so a bit slow but tows our camper trailer with no issues.

I do miss having an all vinyl interior. The carpet is a bit trickier to keep clean with the kids and any camping trips.

We purchased this one second hand so not sure what has been done to it in terms of repairs. They are fairly reliable, especially if you service them regularly.

Done over 500 000

Purchased our 100 series GXL auto new in 2006 with the 1HD FTE motor, the vehicle is excellent we frequently tow 3-3.5 ton occasionally up to 4.2 ton. Vehicle is stock standard, serviced as per the book apart from normal wear and tear. Around 400 000ks we changed the front CV's, at 480 000 we changed the rear wheel bearings. We don't normally keep our vehicles this long but the 100 series has given such great service we kept it. We are now looking at selling it and replacing with the Amarock V6. We have owned the 60 series, 80 series and 200 series. The 100 series for user friendly, simplicity,longevity and reliability is without a doubt the best.

Well I actually hired a Land Cruiser 100 at Fraser Island and stuff, I've seen some but never actually owned one and it was not the special sunroof and navigator. Maybe try the Toyota website. Hope this helps!
