Landcruiser is leaving - who cares?
Pros: smooth and powerful V8, thoughtful features, bulletproof Toyota build quality
Cons: so-so mileage, styling quibbles, lack of vanity mirrors
Get this truck if you want off-road capability, above average street manners and near limitless V8 power. Toyota really nailed the new drivetrain technology. Couldn't be happier. Read More at Epinions.com

2003 4Runner Loaded w/Positive Changes
Pros: Sharp styling both interior and exterior, big improvements in size and cargo capacity.
Cons: None noted.
