First of all, a HUGE thank you to Toyota of Long Beach20 minutes ago
The 200 Series Land Cruiser was first introduced globally in 2002. Over six decades of know-how went into the engineering of this SUV, fusing new, modern luxuries with legendary capability. In 2013, this icon was transformed into the off-road flagship it is today. Every Land Cruiser is loaded with refined creature comforts like heated and ventilated front seats, leather-wrapped surfaces and four-zone automatic climate control. Terrain-conquering prowess is enhanced with standard technologies like an advanced 5.7-liter V8, standard Crawl Control (CRAWL) and a Multi-terrain Monitor. This is how we take adventuring to the next level. Here's to another 60 years of exploring.
Both the IFS 100 and Live-axle 105 models have been reported to be suffering from broken front differential centres when driven in harsh conditions. The most common front differential failures in IFS models are reported in vehicles produced between mid-1997 and mid-1999 (i.e. the model years 1998 and 1999), when Toyota fitted the 100 Series IFS with a 2-pinion front differential (the pinion gear would flex away from the ring gear under shock loads). In 1999 (model year 2000) the IFS Landcruiser received a 4-pinion front differential that was more robust – fewer failures were reported.

Passing performance improved by a tenth of a second, with this Land Cruiser scooting from 30 to 50 mph in 3.8 seconds and from 50 to 70 mph in 5.0 ticks. Such swiftness does come at a cost, and the Land Cruiser swills fuel as ravenously as Barney Gumble downs Duff beer. We saw 13 mpg over 1100 miles of driving, matching the EPA city rating, and averaged 17 mpg on our 75-mph fuel-economy test—1 mpg below the EPA highway estimate.
