“Loss of Power”

Written on: 03/04/2013 by piphardy (1 review written)

Can somebody please help. My Land Cruiser is 10 years old and I love it. A problem I have at the moment is , I can be driving along and suddenly the engine management light appears and I lose power to the poiny where my car will only travel at around 20mph with very little revs. I stop, turn the ignition key off, turn the ignition key on and the management light goes off and I am back to full power, If anyone has experienced this I would be glad to hear from you. Thank you… Read Full Review

Please check your valve sensor. Once change, it goes back to the iriginal power instead of 30% of the original power. The ither thing is, at lost if power, dud you slowly increase the throttle to move faster and suddenly drops back to 20mph? If this is the case, most likely it'll be from the valve sensor.

My current Amazon is My second Amazon which has covered 117000 basically trouble free miles. The only issues I have had have been withe air conditioning system which has been irritating also expensive to fix.it may not be as fashionable as a Range Rover, but the vehicle is ultra reliable with a classic statesman like look.I can,y think of anything I don't like about the vehicle.it tows my large caravan fully loaded with ease.I would recommend this vehicle to any potential purchaser as the best… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/12/2009

Massive, fairly economical (4,2 TD), secure family wagon. "Impossible" to get stuck. Perfect during Norwegian winters. Very reliable (except Torque Converter until mid 2001). I think it's the best car I've owned (amongst about 50 cars). Comfortable to drive, safe in a collision, perfect view also for kids. Highly recommended… Read Full Review

The Toyota Land Cruiser Amazon 4.2 TD is one of the finest 4x4's one could ever purchase!
One only has to look in countries like the Far East and most of all in Africa. The owners in these countries are very hard on their vehicles driving them anywhere with out a second thought, even to a point as using them to plough their farm field in places in Africa. They are not the best at keeping them regularly serviced and clean, but they never seem to give up, just keep going. They out preform the… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/01/2008 by Hopkirk (1 review written)

I am on my 3rd Landcruiser. The last one was a 1990 model VX which I had from new. It was 17yrs and had done 180000 mls. My recent one is a 2003 Amazon with a manual box.
I do a lot of towing so I want a vehicle which is up to its job. I would not recomend this vehicle as a family car replacement but if your requirements are for a 4X4 then this is the car for you.
My Amazon has a common rail diesel engine fitted and does around 25mpg.
Would I buy another one? - yes providing I am still arouind… Read Full Review

“The Toyota Land Cruiser Amazon is exceptionally...”

Written on: 24/05/2006 by Philip Caterer (1 review written)

The Toyota Land Cruiser Amazon is exceptionally spacious and comfortable but even the 2006 model looks dated alongside a Range Rover, Discovery 3, Merc ML, or most other modern 4x4's to be honest. Where it leaves the competition standing is in reliability and durability. Treat other 4x4's hard, perhaps with the exclusion of Nissan, and they will break. The Amazon won't.

To me, the most attractive 7-seat alternative is the Discovery 3 HSE which has been brilliantly thought out and has a… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/08/2008

My Toyota Landcruiser Amazon is now 7 years old. It is the special edition and its an amazing car. The model was a bit infront of itself with Sat Nav and full specs touch screen controls.<br/>I have a new Range Rover Vogue Supercharged also, a wonderful car but have to use the Amazon more because of the size for my work.<br/>Will be looking forward to the new version due this year.

Written on: 22/04/2010

If you buy a Landrover alternative you had better plan for breakdowns. Make sure that you service it on time and be firm when you claim under warranty. My last 2 discoverys needed: 1 engine, 2 gearboxes, 1 diff, 1 rear door (rust)1 turbocharger, 1 water pump, front doors painted twice. I now drive a Toyota product and apart from servicing I have purchased 1 brake light bulb in 5 years. I agree that Landrover design fabulously practical and well thought out vehicles, now if they could get Toyota to build them.............

The Toyota Land Cruiser Amazon 4.2 TD 4x4 copes well with anything you throw at it. Surprisingly sprightly considering its bulk. Engine noisy and auto 'box doesn't change particularly smoothly under hard acceleration.
I had a Mitsubishi Shogun (Pajero) previously and the Toyota is in a different league… Read Full Review

I use this Toyota Land Cruiser Amazon 4.2 TD 4x4 for every day use, as well as a tug for our twin axle caravan. We have had many large 4x4's over the last 10 years for towing, but my Amazon is the best by far. Our first Amazon covered 196000 without any problems at all. Great engines but change the oil every 4000 miles… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/07/2003 by Mick. (1 review written)

Well were do I begin. I have the 50th Anniversary VX Toyota Land Cruiser. I brought it just on two years ago. It has the Sat Nav which is nice and big screen and a very pretty voice that tells you were to go. I have a reverse bleep on it that is a must for this big brute when you are backing back near walls. Cruise control heater and cool control all touch screen so you don't need to fiddle with buttons. I would say to any one that this may bee expensive to pay, not the most expensive one… Read Full Review

I reviewed this jeep earlier in the year when i had just purchased one and was extremely happy with it. I have since been to Europe in it and had a fantastic time in it. It really made the holiday. I have also test drove the latest range rover and am glad to say i own an amazon! i think toyota have to be commended for their success in putting a new top class jeep ahead of the pack. well done!… Read Full Review
