Jason Crooks: Our 2012 LC200 GXL diesel is used as work transport when I go to remote locations, and as a family car for three kids under eight. It’s done over 300,000km and I still trust it; no major problems except a few electricals. It’s quite expensive to maintain. My bills for bigger services, new set of tyres and any problems always costs over $1000, and it is quite thirsty. But it’s a pleasure to drive; comfortable, cruisy and capable off road. I’ve used a Mitsubishi Pajero and Toyota HiLux through work, and the LandCruiser is just in a different class.
