Hi Folks,

Does anyone know a good dealer for used 4WD's (especially Landcruisers) in Brisbane?

Thanks for any addresses, tips and hints,

Not sure what you mean by "good". I think you need to have the vehicle you're interested in checked out by a trusted mechanic (or maybe RACQ if you don't have a trusted mechanic, although my mechanic wasn't overly complimentary on their checks). Bought my Cruiser from Cousins at Rocklea and had no complaints. They were only too happy to let me get it checked out at my mechanics premises.

I bought my Patrol from Cousis at Rocklea, personally I found them difficult to deal with, but they have wide selection to choose from. East Coast Commercials also usually have a good selection as well!

Cousins and East Coast buy their vehicle from the auctions.

Before I purchased my 100 series I was going to the auctions and checking out the dealers for about 4 months. I would go to the auctions and if I didn't find anything suitable I would stop at the car yards on the way home. I would check out dealers like Cousins and East Coast on the way home because they specialised in 4 x 4. On many occaisions I would see vehicles that they had purchased at the auctions with greatly inflated prices then what the dealer had payed for them. These vehicles were marked up anywhere from $3000 to $9000.

Depending on what you want and how patient you want to be go to the auctions and check them out. I found Pickles at Geebung generally had a good selection as well as the Government Auctions at Pinapple Street Zillmere, however the government auctions prices were generally a little higher(but still cheaper then a dealer).

I bought my 2001 100 series Standard Diesel at Pickles when it was 12 months old with 60 000km on the clock for $34 000. When I bought it Cousins and East Coast were selling 2000 models with similar Km on the clock for $40 000 to $43 000 with no extas wheras mine had bulbar, spotties, UHF, window tint, towbar, side rails with side steps.

Use the internet to check out dealers and auction web sites it willm save you a lot of running around.
