Am trying to track down a 2002 Prado auto TD during the run-out.

Has any-one seen them advertised by dealers in the paper this weekend? Any prices mentioned? Not concerned about location, but east coast preferrable.

Thanks,
Rohan.

Hi Bernie,

Yep, I've got a print-out of all Toyota dealerships and am trying to track one down.

I'm based in Melbourne, but at the moment I'm o/s for work, which is making the whole process a little more difficult again!

If you do find out anything I can be contacted directly on rohan_lees@hotmail.com.

Thanks for your help,
Rohan.

Rohan was at the dealer on the weekend asking about one myself and was told they did a search for someone else several days earlier and found one only in Australia which was already promised. Plenty of petrol ones though. New model comes in about 4 to 6 weeks they said. Different shape though not sure if i like it .Not the news you want to hear but you never know some one may not be able to close the deal and you might get lucky.

Hi Glen,

Have you seen any specifications or reviews for the "new" Prado ?

Phil,
Go to http://www.toyota.com.au/allnewprado/
Not too many details, but a few pictures. Apparently it's going to have the same 3l diesel and a new 4l petrol motor. Running gear is basically unchanged. Hate those wanky-looking headlights - they are going to look really dated and silly in a few years (like the NM Pajero wheel humps). Why can't we have a more conservative, utilitarian look for 4WD's that won't date?

Phil, the Australian 4x4 Monthly has a review in the Feb edition. Usual story some good points - new motor, more room, and some bad points - can't remember them, but I think price is one).

Glen,

Might be interested to know that I am just finalising the paperwork at a dealer in Vic for a new 2002 Prado TD Auto with a/c and afew bits and pieces. He has another one on his lot, and knows of one other in Vic that is not spoken for.

Have to admit that the price isn't as sharp as those in Qld, but it's still pretty good value on a new Toyota.

I'll post the dealer name when I've got my contract signed if you're interested.

Rohan.
