The Toyota Land Cruiser “80 Series” is a fantastic SUV — and it’s rapidly becoming an icon. Today I’m reviewing the FZJ80 Land Cruiser, and I’m going to show you all the quirks and features of the 1990s Toyota Land Cruiser and Lexus LX450. Then I’m going to drive the Land Cruiser and show you what it’s like on the road.

  1. Does Doug not understand that if a seat is split evenly 50/50 that it would be impossible to make the armrest one piece? Every 90’s suv with a 50/50 split had this design

  2. "Proof that 90's cars had a long way to go." Wow that's brilliant. Because I'm sure you won't be saying that about current cars 30 years from now?

  3. No matter the country or care – the paint on the roof is always terrible. In Australia you can't change the number of seats in a vehicle without getting a mod plate…so if you remove them and the police notice…you get fined. So having the seats fold to the side is necessary here at least.

  5. The "luxury" model for any car brand is as easy as putting a bowtie to the base model.
    Toyota-Lexus, Nissan-Infinity, Ford-Lincoln, etc.

  6. I still remember the day my uncle Leo rolled up at our house a month ago, 1.4 million miles on her and she still runs great.

  7. The Lexus Land Cruiser is just called a Land Cruiser Cygnus in Japan. My 99 LX470 has additional AHC suspension control system and Nakamichi sound system. That said, it has proved utterly reliable in the four years I have owned it. I wasn't much of a Toyota fan until I bought this essentially 100 series Land Cruiser.

  8. Hey Doug. I think the little cup holder on the drivers side is actually a coin catch. Every driven a truck and the coins rolled out of your pocket? Luxury suv owners apparently had lots of change in their pockets and needed the coin catch.

  9. The antenna up/down is actually used for off-roading. You can lower the antenna so it doesn't get snapped by brush and branches.

  10. We have a 1997. This machine has seen it all. The sarcasm of this guy is not appreciated when the information is incorrect. I suggest this guy take a course in basic sub knowledge. You like it or hate it? Make up your mind.

  11. My father had the Toyota land cruiser Prado one of the 90s and then another one of 2005. These things last forever. These cars are everywhere here in Colombia. Some people even exchange real state for one of these cars lol.

  12. My wife and I bought a 1997 LX450 last March and this video pushed us over the edge to make the leap. It's been awesome ever since. Beach driving in the outer banks, family outings, etc. Bought it with 245,000 miles and have base lined it and am slow fixing all of the little things, but it's great. Thanks Doug! We are in Kennett Square outside of Philly, hope your west coast living is treating you right
