Who ever answers the question is going to start a flame war.

Both marques have the good and bad. I have a Land Rover and depends on the day if I love it or hate it. I hate it at the moment because it has been with Land Rover for nearly a month having warranty work. But heh flip side is Land Rover are doing the warranty work.

Maybe the Toyota may have similar issues but would not do the warranty work.

Really the selection of vehicle really depends on $$$$, use, no of members in your family plus lost of others factors.

I really do not think there is any one answer.

Hi Antonio, Yes there is good and bad in all, I own a discoveryII V8 And i love it, Yes we have had a couple of little problems but landrover were there to back us up. Cant complain about the service we have received even after it was out of warranty. That really is one aspect you have to look at. I think for long range i would look at the TD5 for its fuel efficiency,also the toyota Prado comes with standard long range tanks and is a great vehicle as well with the 3 litre diesel is also very economical. All the best and happy shopping. Steve

Antonio ask yourself why is everyone talking about Landrover aftersales service.If you buy Landrover,you are going to need them,for sure.

There appear to be many agenda's in this forum, and it perhaps includes at times of some annonymous opinion. I would also suggest you have a look at some of the other 4WD forums around the WWW and ask the owners of some of the Yahoo groups if you can become involved (even if its for a very short period). If you go to and then register into groups, you will find groups about anything and everything, specifically about the Landcruisers and Landrovers you are asking about. There is an absolutely unbelievable amount of information in these groups and they will answer and discuss anything you can think of in relation to the relevant vehicle.

Slunnie,it sounds like some of the agendas here dont agree with you.This forum is perfectly suited to all the questions about 4x4.If you dont like certain agendas i suggest you should not read follow- ups.Or you can go to some of the groups.

Hmmm, thanks Goran. I’ll take what you have said on board and make my own decisions on where I will look and what I do on the computer thanks. There is no prerequisite to agree with the loudest opinion or any person on this site, unless you can show me where this is stated. I also know I can go to some of the Yahoo groups Goran, and have done so thank you. The groups I have subscribed to have all been very high quality and informative also. If you feel I’m talking about you specifically then that’s also fine, and your decision, especially considering you seem to post with a legitimate email address. What I am suggesting here quite clearly, is that there seems to be a strong negative feeling towards one of the products being examined (Landrover obviously). What I am saying, and what I would think most would interpret me as saying, is speak to groups with specialist knowledge about the 2 products and they can discuss the issues surrounding the vehicles and possibilities with them. I have found the people in these groups to be quite realistic. This forum isn’t a specialist LC or LR forum, and although many people here have a lot of knowledge about those vehicles, a specialized group might have 500 LC or LR fanatics who email about them around the clock. The guy is going to spend probably the best part of $50,000-$60,000 and should make a fully informed decision with specific product knowledge. This type of forum although good, isn’t going to provide all of the answers. Regards Slunnie.

Goran, Slunnie is a member of the Yahoo Group that I own, and is a valued and knowledgeable contributor. Believe me, if he wasn't he'd be booted off the group, for inflammatory posts as an example! Bill

Here, here Slunnie. When people ask questions on this forum I'm sure that the they would prefer informed replies, including constructive criticism if need be. Slunnie makes the point, someone who is considering parting with their $50-60,000 surely deserve our respect. They are not after 2nd hand stories, but genuine, mature and informed comments and experiences.

I have owned both LR's & LC's and they both have there good and bad points. My current vehicle is a LC 100 Series and right now IMHO I would say the LC has it over the LR from a cost/features/space/trim/build/spares/service/engines/ point of view.

I think the only way to figure out for yourself the best vehicle for you is to do a fair bit of research and test driving and talking to people about there own experiences.

What I will say is I am very happy with my current set of wheels.
