Hi All,

In my quest to find a good value v6 4wd wagon I've accepted that I cannot afford a current model vehicle (budget $20-25K). One question I haven't found an answer to though still bugs me abit.

Am I going to find it easier to find spare parts for a discontinued model e.g. Jackaroo or a superceeded model like a 90 series Prado?

Don't want to find myself digging around the wreckers in afew years time trying to find basic parts for servicing/maintenance.

jacks are isuzu so finding parts for them shouldnt be a problem for a while. I think there is a law that manafactures must have spares for x amount of years also there are plenty of jacks around that holden can still make money selling parts for. Prados comand the toyota premium so you will get more bang from your buck elsewhere (by all acounts the prado is worth its money). Have you considered the pajero?

You will have no problem getting the tojo parts for years to come. the only suspect thing in about ten years may be some trim items but mechanical bits are right for 30 years or more.

I've found the 90series Prado parts to be very reasonable as far as cost goes. I'd guess its one of the the best vehicles for the budget you have available.
