Best used 7-seat SUV under $30k

Answered by CarsGuide 25 Nov 2016

Your budget limits you to older models, such as 2008/2009, which will have done 120,000 to 180,000 km. I am loath to recommend buying one of these cars with such a mileage on them; you would be heading the period of pain when you are quite likely to face increasing and expensive repairs. If you were to choose to buy one I would go for the Discovery. I would also urge you to have the car you choose checked over by a specialist mechanic who knows the brand intimately. Instead of the European models you are considering I would suggest you also look at something like the Toyota Kluger, which would likely to be more reliable and less expensive going forward, and your budget would stretch to a later model.

Toyota Kluger 2010: Snapped valve spring

Answered by CarsGuide 22 Nov 2013

Toyota has had problems with valve springs breaking and recalled a number of Lexus models in 2010 to replace valve springs. The recall followed similar recalls in the USA. The recall was for different engines and didn't affect the Kluger, but the failure you report appears very similar to the failures on the engines that were affected. Call Toyota on 1800 869 682.

Toyota Kluger 2010: Rust on brand new car?

Answered by CarsGuide 21 Dec 2010

Although Toyota has put the blame back on you I reckon they have a responsibility to justify to you their claim that you have done something to cause the rust. What do they believe you have done? I would have your solicitor send them a letter demanding a full explanation of their findings, including justification of why they believe the car is not faulty. If you want to pursue an independent assessment of the car contact Graeme Cuthbert on 03 9899 7177 or 0422 444 335.
