What should I look for in a used Toyota Land Cruiser 4x4?

Apart from a few early cars that were recalled because of a possible fuel leak, the Land Cruiser seems bereft of problems.

Mind you, that should come as no surprise. Toyota has consistently performed well in JD Power surveys, and other 4x4s from the company have also done well.

Warranty Direct has no figures on this latest Land Cruiser, but the omens are good. The previous generation car has enjoyed better than average reliability and the company's smaller SUV, the RAV4, has always been one of the most reliable cars on the company's books.

Last, but not least, reports from owners have been good. True, there is the occasional glitch, but for the most part there have been no reports of any major problems.
