    My land cruiser just blew a transmission at 100k miles..., be careful how much you believe about LC’s.

    My experience so far is the 100 series is the least reliable and most failure prone for both minor and major parts.

    My 2000 LX470 has lost a transmission at 170k, had an ignition switch failure (read up on it, it’s a huge pain) and the previous owners dealt with a host of other issues as well related to steering.

    Not to mention the chronic issues with window switches (Oftpiste is not the only one) and wiring.

    Plus the CV axles like to leak and start clunking.

    Personally in hindsight I think skipping the LX and either staying 80 series or earlier or going for a gx460 or 200 series is the way to go.

    But my wife loves her lx470 so I keep fixing it like a dummy.

    I think I “warned” you about the ignition switch a while ago, no? I believe the issue exists with several Toyotas and Honda’s.

    For us, the choices in our price range to meet our needs were 100-series, sequoia, or Tahoe. A good 100-series came up first that was not a fly and drive.

    Here’s a 100-series question, can i switch to cheaper plugs that I change out more frequently? The whole plugs backing out of their threads “issue” over their 120k use is concerning to me after my previous experience.

    I still have not done my research about ifs issues which mostly involves finding and looking at my mechanics recommendations.

    I didn't even know they were still sending FJ45's into the states in 1978 but then I saw this at a gas station a few days ago Click image for larger version.

    Love the shop and what you're doing out there. I really appreciate good dudes doing good work for the real customers.

    Question: I'm shopping for a SUV sometime in the next 6 months - wife wants a 4Runner, I'm more GX or LC/LX, but she thinks LC's are "too big.". I've always really liked 100s (and there are tons around Aspen), but I've been a bit wary with added mechanical considerations. Which brings me back to the GX - I realize the size is not much bigger than the 4Runner, but I like the concept and we rented a 2012-14ish Prado in Oman, did some good offroad with it and really liked it. Anything mechanically, big-picture, to be aware of with GX460/470s?

    Can you source a 60 series steering box, either with a quality rebuild or low miles? Old man's truck has been loosey goosey for too long.

    Pretty much spot on. So far this year I had my ignition tumbler snap and the tranny blow. That said...I still love the 100 series.

    I think if I wanted to buy a "newer" truck for my wife to drive, I'd get a GX460/470. They seem to be the "new" version of the 100 series, in terms of size/power. Put some KO2's on it, and you're good to go. I test drove a 200 series LC earlier in the year, and thought it drove like shit compared to my 100, possibly due to the size.
