  LandCruiser 200 Mark II 4.5L Twin-Turbo Diesel Sahara

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

New Car Old Technology

Toyota maps in this car are stone age. Put in a destination. some Streets DO NOT exist. Get Google maps on your phone, and there is the address. Want a map update. OH! That is going to cost you. I paid $130 k for this 200 series, and Toyota still want more. The maps where out of date when the car was new.

Now the new Toyota Connect App does not even have my car listed. 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

Great reliable vehicle

Bought at 195000klms, now at 290000klms and only regular servicing needed, comfortable, effortless towing. Reinforces Toyota's reliability IMO. 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

Dusted engine. ABS packed it in

Great car to drive, but I also had a dusted engine at 300000kms. $25k to fix it. It’s a known problem with these cars so second hand buyers beware. Love the car, but parts are expensive. just had the entire ABS system replaced at a cost of $5k. I’ve now gone back to the 100 series for reliability. Show details

  LandCruiser 200 Mark I 4.7 Petrol GXL

LC200 GXL 2011 Petrol Extremely Reliable

We purchased the Petrol Landcruiser back in 2014 with 90000kms for half the cost of a Diesel. Just clicked over 228000kms and still going strong. We use this car for everyday commute, and regular trips to Sydney return (8hrs). You can not beat this car for highway and country driving, the petrol V8 is quiet, powerful, and soaks up the poor road surfaces in Central NSW. KDS suspension is standard on the petrol V8s and just adds to the exceptional handling of this car. Had timing belt changed as recommended at 120000kms, other than normal services we have had trouble-free motoring. Show details

Smooth driving and up high

I've only had my brand new Toyota Landcruiser 200 for under 6 months and I love it. Such a spacious car, so smooth to drive and your up high so it's much easier for parking. I drive it daily for the school runs, for errands etc. but have also taken it on long trips. I love the back for storage, my five kids can move around so easily and there's plenty of space for the groceries. Excellent power when taking off and passing. We have never taken it off road and do not intend to. Show details

One Of The Best Cars I Have Ever Owned

I use the car as a daily driver as well as extensive towing a 3 ton van around Australia which involves some off road driving without the van to go to remote camping spots the car is serviced by my mechanic of over 20 years every 10000 KMS. The car now over 4 years old has never missed a beat. 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

Is it a private sale or dealer? Do you know a mechanic to help you look over it for you? Or someone.
Check the log book services, How many klm. What has the car been used for? On road or off? Lots to look at.
