Hi

My search for a 4wd continues and have now decided I want 100 series. A 2002 Intercooled TD has popped up but $35k (asking price) for a car that has done 200,000 + klms is hard to swallow. Would anyone else pay this?

Appreciate any feedabck

Thanks

That sounds a big\t high. Would have to be the 5-speed (Nov-2002+) to consider near that price. But you get what you pay for - very good vehicle.

Yep he'll get what he pays for all right..... an unknown, overpriced, 6-7 year old vehicle with 200000km on the clock. Good vehicle OK but not at that price.

Condition is far more important than ks. A high k car used for touring will be a better proposition than a soccer mom car run around the city. My 2003 turbo 5 speed auto has 210k klms and runs smoother and gets better fuel than when new. They really are a top car, still no rattles, always run on Mobil Delvac, at 200k these motors are just nicely run in. Tell me what you can replace a car like this with? No wonder those of us that own them keep them. Cheers Rob

35K is a bit high for 200+ k car, they are a very good vehicle but you have to draw a line somewhere, i have an 03 TD 5 speed auto and would not part with it.keep looking,one will appear even though they are now getting quite scarce

Thanks Paul

That the trouble!! You lucky buggers won't trade 'em giving people like me the chance to get a good second hand one at a reasonable price. LOL

Are Toyotas overpriced? It would certainly make me look elsewhere. Nissan/Pajero/Jeep could be just as good at less than that price - depends on what you want it for.

So, what do you want your 4by for? You haven't told us that and you haven't told us why you settled on the 100 series.

Hi Family Guy, Toyo prices are hard to follow at times, a mth ago there seemed to be a real decline in values of all models petrol and diesel, But that seems to be only short lived, for the 100s TD,as you are finding out. The 200s has helped at the moment with a few nigglng probs that seem to be well advertised..lol. I paid 25k for a 04 GXL v8 petrol 5 speed auto 175,000km,6mths ago with a nudge bar,, full tint, four new tyres. Although i had motor issues it was sorted eventually at no cost to me, so am really happy with vehicle. I would think my model in a TD would be a reasonable buy at 35k
under 200,000 ks though.


Cheers Axle.

Been meaning to ask how its going Axle - have its settled down to any consistent mileage yet.
Went past I nice black one today at montrose , I wouldn't have the 4.2 diesel one but this V8 seemed ok at $30000 which is as you say a little more than they were ater xmas.

G/day Robin, Its going well oil and water levels perfect, Fuel consumption, is,getting better each week, Missus doing short runs about 16l/100kms.

A run up the East coast NSW with 2tonne van on (only 300ks each way) But 20l/100k up, 18l/100km back light footed though..lol. still they are the smoothest and quietest thing , But in saying that i think the UZJ family of toyo motors maybe just a tad light, but overall very very happy.

Cheers Axle

Try looking up the 'used car values' at redbook.com.au, or for comparison, try the same at drive.com.au
