Summary:

Nice comfortable drive with ample features and extras

Faults:

I have a 3.0 Four Harrier Japanese import. When I bought the car the CD player was not functioning - it was rejecting Cd's. The rest of the audio-visual system was functioning properly including tape and radio. I took it for repair where the front panel was dismantled and the CD player determined to be faulty. It was not repaired, but when the components of the audio-visual system were put back nothing was working. The radio, tape and TV were not functioning. The visual display was also blank. The air conditioning works, but I cannot determine settings because the visual display is not working? What could be the problem? Could it be a software problem and how can it be repaired? Thanks.

General Comments:

Too early to determine, but and it is a general all-rounder however I have not tested its off-road capability.

I had similar problems with my Toyota Harrier's CD player, till I discovered that it functions perfectly well when you use the CD changer, which is located in the glove compartment.

Faults:

Have some noise with the driver's belt. Some rust appeared on the iron tail tow hook.

General Comments:

Good perfomance at high speed but acceleration so slow at low revs.

It's more reasonable to buy than the Mercedes M Class that is too expensive and has a more outdated interior than the Harrier.

I just import an Harrier from JAPAN, but the TV channels and the Radio is not the same frequency, and the language display is in JAPAN.

Please let me know if possible to change a module so that l can modify the TV channels and Radio channels.

Thanks in advance.

Regards.

Phil.
