    To the engineer at Toyota;

    What is the repair for the 3.3 V6 turbo diesel's excessive oil consumption. I have heard every two to three thousand kilometres it needs nearly two litres of oil?

    I think this is unsatisfactory for Landcruiser in the new 300 Series.

      If they really gave a damn about it they would design a new inline 6 diesel to replace everything.

    Why is the Telluride better?

    What’s the expected lifespan of the hybrid powertrain? Will the hybrid powertrain be as long lived and maintainable as previous Land Cruiser powertrains?

    The Land Cruiser model is largely expected to last reliably 20+ years and 200,000+ miles. Are these milestones possible with the hybrid?

      Only mentioning V35A as it and 8AR are the next recent turbocharged Toyota engines with several years of service. I hope the V35A is reliable by now, with the wastegate actuator issue resolved, I drove an LS500 and really enjoyed the engine along with the rest of the vehicle it's no ATP-Master Genesis but I'd still go w/ the Lexus.

    Are there any surprises with the model that you haven’t told us about yet? Any Easter Eggs?
