Good budget 4WD's for travelling

Answered by CarsGuide 24 Apr 2017

You have to consider what type of four-wheel driving you want to do. If it's heavy-duty then go for an older Toyota Landcruiser or Prado, if it's less taxing then a lighter model might do for you. I would suggest a 2006 Toyota Landcruiser Prado or a 2007 Mitsubishi Pajero.

Replaced Prado seals before recall

Answered by CarsGuide 8 May 2015

If they’ve been changed I see no need to do it again. It’s unfortunate that you have replaced them before Toyota contacted you, but it’s done and I don't think you’ve got any comeback on the company now.

Toyota Prado: Engine rattle

Answered by CarsGuide 29 Nov 2013

No, it's not a coincidence, the faulty injector is likely to have been the cause of the rattle all along. If you still have the records of your previous reports to the dealers about it you could possibly mount a case with Toyota for compensation.

Leaked fuel injector seats

Answered by CarsGuide 17 Jul 2012

We've already publicised the issue with the D-4D engine, and have helped one owner get a replacement engine free of charge after his Hilux suffered the same problem as your has. Other owners should consider checking the oil pickup in the sump for a build-up of carbon that could potentially block the pickup and cause a total engine failure. The pickup can be inspected by looking through the oil drain      plug, it's easy to do, and could save you a lot of money and heartache.

Prado cracked pistons

Answered by CarsGuide 24 May 2012

Toyota has undoubtedly tested the D-4D engine in Australia and on Australian diesel fuel and I am sure it would not sell the vehicle here if it there were a problem. As for keeping it alive I would service it religiously, and I would take note of the known problem with leaking fuel injector seals that has resulted in a recall in other parts of the world, and led to a policy in NZ of changing them every 45,000 km. Perhaps you should think about changing the seals as per the Kiwi recommendation.

Toyota Prado 2006: Noisy clutch

Answered by CarsGuide 9 Aug 2010

You’re on a loser trying to convince Toyota to pay for a new clutch. At the very, very best they might cough up for part of the cost, but I doubt they’ll show any interest at all for the reasons you quote. If the clutch is still operating fine, then take the clutch man’s advice and crank up the radio until the clutch fails and needs replacing.

Dash destroyed in Toyota Prado

Answered by CarsGuide 20 May 2010

Yours is the first report of a problem we have received at Cars Guide. We have passed your report on to Toyota for their response, and in the meantime ask Prado owners to contact us if they have had the same problem.
