Check out real-world situations relating to the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado 2012 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Noisy injectors in diesel Toyota Prado

    It seems to be a common problem with Toyota diesels, and one that doesn't have a fix. Others I know of have had the injectors replaced, only for the problem to come back a few months later. Go to a diesel engine specialist and get their advice.

  • Toyota Prado: Towing capacity

    No. The manufacturer determines the vehicle's towing capacity taking into consideration things like the design of the vehicle, its rear axle load, tyres and the effect the trailer will have on the vehicle's attitude and stability. You can measure the tow ball weight using bathroom scales, or putting the laden trailer across a weighbridge and getting the weight borne by the axle/axles. The tow ball weight will be the total weight minus the load on the axle/  axles. It's generally about 10 percent of the total weight of the loaded trailer.

  • Prado service

    As you can see with Peter, above, Toyota has approved his claim for repairs, so I suggest you persist with your claim, and I feel confident it will be resolved.
