Ok, so I've got a 2004, 120 LC3 that I've had from new, it's been fully Toyota Services and is just coming up to 190k

It's manual, still has the original Clutch, Exhaust, brake disks (?), only had to change the batteries last winter as the old ones just didn't have the punch in the cold weather.

This that have broken - lower nearside wishbone, near side drive shaft, fuel pump twice and the AC pump (replaced with a recon once, but that's gone now)

Whenever I've been into Toyota the mechanics never seemed all that enamoured by the 150, the suggestion being stick with what I had...

So have I been really lucky with my TLC what can I expect from the 150s?  Do they hold up to the same kind of mileage or is it like all things modern, just not made to last???

Thoughts welcome

Hi,

I've done the same thing, swapped into a 150 from a 120 I had for about 7yrs.

had it now for about 3-4yrs, see my other posts on this 150 pages, done about 40k MLS.

I'd say a Big change between models, in a good way,  whilst it may fall short against its rivals in some areas, LC owners I think buy for different reasons to mainstream 4x4 users etc.

Still like it, and can't see changing anytime soon, and there still doesn't seem to be many around.

Just a quick post for now, have a read through the other ownership threads, I've give some updates over ownership time.
