Toyota Land Cruiser Problems

Power Steering Pump May Leak on Higher Mileage Vehicles

At higher mileages (125,000 -150,000) the power steering pump may begin to leak on the 6 cylinder vehicles and could require replacement.

Failed Electrical Junction Block May Cause Power Windows and Mirrors to Stop Working

The power windows and mirrors stop working because of a problem with an electrical junction block—where power from the battery is distributed to that system.

Check Engine Light Due to EVAP System

The Check Engine Light may illuminate due to an evaporative emission (EVAP) system fault. Our technicians tell us these EVAP system faults can be difficult to diagnose but it is not uncommon to find a failed charcoal canister or a loose or worn gas cap.

Toyota Land Cruiser Recalls

Side Curtain Air Bags Deploy Unexpectedly

The side curtain air bags may deploy unexpectedly, resulting in possible occupant injury. Dealers will replace the air bag control module with one that has improved programming free of charge to resolve the concern.

Loose Accessory Installation

Vehicles with accessories (running boards, etc.) installed by SET are being recalled due to incorrect installation. Fasteners used to attach these accessories were installed with incorrect torque, and may detach resulting in unsafe driving conditions.

Incorrect Vehicle Weight Rating Label

Vehicles have a tire size/weight rating label to inform owners of the carrying capacity of their vehicle. These models are being recalled because the incorrect vehicle weight rating is shown on the information label. This could result in vehicle and tire overloading, increasing the risk of tire failure. Owners will be provided an updated vehicle weight label to correct this concern.

An Awesome Car.......has 270,000 miles and going strong. Still looks and drives like a new car. When I take it in for routine service........they can't believe the miles and condition. Would do it all over again.......I'm the original owner
Original owner, all we have ever done is oil change and routine service requirements.Getting ready for the 120 K service. The money you put out in the beginning will amoratize over the long haul.

Did I mention she travels on 7 miles of gravel road an...
