Toyota Land Cruiser Prado Recall - Information & Updates

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.

Answered by CarsGuide 24 May 2012

Given that this is the second such failure on your car and Toyota coughed up for the first one I think you are on solid grounds for a claim against the company. As you have tried the consumer affairs route and that has failed I would consult a lawyer and consider taking the company to court.

Toyota Prado 2005: Soft brakes

Answered by CarsGuide 26 May 2011

We have been told that some softness is a characteristic of the Prado, and despite this uncertain feeling the brakes do work and stop the car effectively. We have also been told that there is an issue with the brake master cylinder and Toyota has been replacing them under warranty. I would suggest you quiz your dealer about the master cylinder issue and request that he checks yours.
