2007 Toyota Prado TX 2.7 petrol

Summary:

Smaller Land Cruiser, bigger practicality. 100% reliable

Faults:

Nothing. Zero.

We have had it 12 months. I have resprayed the back bumper twice for minor scrapes.

Total reliability.

Driver's leather seat squab is looking worn.

General Comments:

So much more refined than our Toyota Fortuner 2007 and our 1989 Mercedes G-Wagon. Light years more civility and practicality than my 2004 Land Rover Defender 110.

You need big powerful cars for the cut and thrust of Singapore city traffic. The Prado (AKA wife's Prada) gets us there.

2700cc is enough since we can not tow in our city state. Built very well. The plastics will survive the tropical heat. Toyota SUV reliability at its best.

The 8 seats come in useful though we normally use 5.

Smaller than the Amazon, so can fit in most car-parks - but not all.

Still looks shiny, new and unmarked after 10 years of driving.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
