Toyota Prado: Buying for age or mileage?

Asked by Monica O’Brien

I am looking at buying an older Toyota Prado or Mitsubishi Pajero, about 2003-2005. It would be used mostly for city driving, but would have about four or five long country/camping trips per year. Is it better to buy a 2003 car with fewer kilometres or a 2005 car with more? I am not sure when comparing prices if I judge by the year or the kilometres?

In this case I would be tempted to go for the older car with the fewer kilometres, as long as you were sure the odometer reading is correct.
