Cheap and Nasty Steering Wheel

I own a 2017 200 Landcruiser Sahara - the top of the line Landcruiser at the time. In the last 6 months the leather trim on the steering wheel has been falling off. looked up Toyota blogs and it appears that it is a very common problem with Landcruisers around my year build (2017). Took it to Toyota for a warranty claim, in my opinion this should be a recall. Toyota refused warranty and have quoted $2334 for a new steering wheel! Show details

Love the V8 Cruiser!

Now owned for 6 months (driven 10000 kms) now and it’s done 98500 kms

Pros:
- Comfortable and smooth ride
- lazy power, but has great pick up
- the tech is dated but functional and it works
- loves the open roads about averages 10 kph
- plenty of room for (last trip had - 2 golf bags, 48l fridge, luggage, fishing gear and dog)
- fixed price service
- value has not dropped as yet

Cons:
- need to consider parking options if you are traveling to shops etc
- fuel economy ok for size / weight but small trips / stop-start trips are bad averages 13 kph
- service intervals 10000 or 6 months

Because it’s a daily driver I have kept the set up standard but flexible. Show details

Horses for courses

You don't buy a pair of football boots to play basketball, similarly if you don't need a rugged off road vehicle with 7 seats and towing capacity then buy something else. The 200 is a truck, adapted for the road. It's heavy, uses plenty of diesel, 5k service intervals and the features - even I'm the Sahara - are a generation behind. But as a large, family friendly towimg vehicle there is no competition. Super reliable and capable. Show details

Absolute satisfaction at this stage

Am on the sixth 200 series being 2 GXLs and now fourth Sahara and the last being Horizon mod,have not had a single problem at 44000ks,as usual the Toyota fuel figures are wrong as with this one and previous ones about 11.5 to 13.5 per 100ks,oil use was a little bit on the first 3 but oil is cheap,getting it to stay in 6th has always been a problem but by easing off a little it will hold and pull at 1500revs,have never towed but of course you will use fuel,amazing how many people who have them do not about the ECT power button for towing or quick acceleration which does of course use more fuel but not as much as my friends Nissan Patrol at about 22 ltrs per 100 ks plus Show details

Love my Sahara

I drive my Sahara every day to and from work. On the weekends it tows my boat to the ramp to go scuba diving. The big V8 tows the 3.5 tonne boat easily! Show details

That’s why they’re called ‘King of the Road’, because they are

General commute, Interstate travel and Intrastate travel towing a 6.2m boat.
My boat trailer is 1.5 feet longer since I’ve been towing it with my twin turbo V8 diesel. Lol
Comfort is great and due economy is good considering vehicle size. Show details

Top of the World

I use this car for long distance driving and offroad. Before lockdown I was out every weekend. I have it regularly serviced as per manufacturers recommendation . It is a great car and you really enjoy the drive and it holds the road very well.
I now have had this vehicle for 4 years and its a great beast in looks and drive. The value has also appreciated. Show details

2nd 200, Perfection. Nothing comes close

King of the roads with nothing else coming close. I use it to tour, tow and as a daily driver and it does it all. Last one had no issues either. Show details

Still happy with the vehicle as a whole

On the 4th 200 and second Sahara and still happy with the overall performance having done 16ks but still waiting for the 9.5lts per 100ks and am sure it won't happen, i think the extra horsepower was gained by increasing revs to get it to 200kw by an extra 200rpm at 3600rpm where as my older ones were 195kw at 3400rpm so what would you think, safe wise i feel better being in something which is solid and reliable like the old saying you can take a Landrover into the scrub but you need a Toyota to get back.

I love the vehicle. Hate the GPS

I live in the bush and bought 2016 200 Sahara to be legal towing our van. It does everything with ease.
The GPS map is 20 years out of date with the road names around here. I have been checking for updates only to find they are still out of date. All other maps including Toyota link have the road names correct.
Why is Toyota wasting theirs and our money on this supplier. Tom Tom. Show details ·  2

Extremely high quality - best car I have owned

Use the 200 for commuting, family transport & towing a 3700KG boat. (I had a second stage mfg increase the BTC to 4T). The vehicle is more solid than anything else I have seen designed & built today. Comfortable for long trips, large car that is easy to handle. I will have a very hard time letting go of this one when the time comes. Show details

Comfortable car

This is a really comfortable 4wd to drive around. Lots of really good things about it. Some frustrations with the navigation unit being poor, as is toyota form it seems, and some of the alarms and bells can't be turned off, which is annoying. Good long distance tourer. Second major issue is the payload capacity. Toyota need to look at this and address it. Considering so many buy the car as a tourer, tow vehicle, the 650kg capacity is no-where near enough.

Power and the glory

Had my 2013 Sahara since new, 100,000km of trouble free luxury and hauling tools for work. A great machine to cover large distances easily and comfortably. Economical diesel albeit a twin turbo V8 powerhouse. Love the chiller box and dvd for children in the rear. Plenty of room for the larger framed folk! Reliability is first class.

2020 Sahara- don’t think it comes with hill start assists? Does it have an emergency braking system? The active cruise control will not work under 50k/hr?? And the front parking sensors only at either corners? The power mode and the eco mode both produce the same kms and both tank combine city driving will yield just 700km diesel.
