Summary:

Reliable car, no mess no fuss

Faults:

Besides that it's slightly underpowered, absolutely nothing wrong with my Prado.

General Comments:

It goes just about anywhere, somewhat comfy and I know my family is safe on the road. Lots of space, even in a 2 door, nothing rattles, nothing EVER breaks down, and it's firm on the road as far as 4x4's go.

It might not have flames down the side, or be as cool as a Chevy, but it does it's job, exactly what it was built for.

What more do you want, what more do you really need?

Summary:

Simply superb, and you will enjoy every ride

Faults:

Nothing wrong, but I feel the brakes are not sharp enough to handle the power and weight of this 4x4. It's too strong.

General Comments:

It's so comfortable and quiet that you wouldn't even know the car has started if you sit inside this one.

It's got an amazing acceleration, so that you can be first at the traffic signals (you will like it when you just fly off, seeing others in the rear-view mirror).

I went for one with dual fuel-tanks, so I get 1200 kilometers on one fill. On motorways, if you keep between 120 and 130 kph, you will get about 13 litres/100km, cities you get about 14.5 litres/100km, and offroad you get about 17 litres/100km.

Missing services won't upset the car, but you will notice the mileage going down if you don't.
