Very neat inside and outside and well maintained vehicle with Ironman suspension. Biggest scuff is the little nick on the front bumper corner. Only 2 problems came to light in the past 2 days.
1. Is the P-N-R-D-1-2 next to the gear lever supposed to be illuminated when lights are switched on?
2. Only the driver’s door mirror collapses and can be adjusted via the designated buttons. The passenger door mirror does not move or fold. Where can I start looking?

Thx

Nowhere, those minor imperfections only add to the character of the vehicle :)
Looks great, hope that you have the most fun in it!!

I hear what you say, but as I did with my 1996 Pajero, I like to fix every bulb, button, feature...that’s not in working condition (within limits of course) :)

True true.
It will also add to the value again if you ever decide to sell that everything is in perfect working order and 'as new'.
Looks good though. Enjoy :)

Baie geluk Bram!!!! Baie mooi voertuig daai!!!! Die PRND2L moet verlig wees op die vloer as die ligte aan is... Of die gloeilamp is geblaas of daar is n swak kontak.

Haal die deur paneel linksvoor af. Die spieels het n geneigheid om hulle stopper op die micro switch the nie meer te activate nie en vou dan heeltemal ander kant om. Vermoed dit is wat gebeur het. Klink soos joune is uitgeplug. Myne selle gedoen... Het die spieel laat n stopper insit deur my dental Lab. Nou stop myne op sy plek weer.

Nog baie tevrede met die 2000 prado!! Alle liggies brand nou soos dit moet. Die elektriese lumbar support op die bestuurdersitplek werk nie. Dit lyk my dis die motor. Daar is krag tot by die motor. Hoe haal ek die bekleding van die rugleuning af? My VX het nie spoedbeheer (cruise control) nie en ek stel belang om dit te installeer. Enige Prado90/95 eienaars wat al so n "after market kit" laat installeer het? Enige raad van watter merk die beste is?

Nee. My gat jeuk al jare vir een. Baie navorsing gedoen en die grootste probleem is dat die gearbox begin "hunt" tussen 4e en overdrive. So ek het dit gelos. Maar Scott sit die beste een in van die lot.

sommer so ter inligting - cruise control kos nou tussen 6 en 7k op n nuwe voertuig, as jy dit kies as n ekstra.

Persoonlik dink ek nie die 4 Spoed ratkas is die beste vir cruise control nie. Ek self verkies om met die voet te ry, kry heelwat beter verbruik so as die computer self. Die torque op die 3.4 op 2400 rpm is nie genoeg om cruise control te laat loop nie, en soos James noem dan begin die terug skakel en weer opskakel teen opdraandes.

Ek self gebruik eerder die PWR shift teen gemiddelde opdraendes of skakel overdrive terug teen lang opdraendes. Verander nie verbruik merkbaar nie en die enjin bly baie naby sy snelheid tot bo. Cruise control werk lekker op n Turbo Diesel motor as jy 4 spoed auto box in het soos die D4D is heel gemaklik met dit aan tot so op 140 waarna hy begin hunt ook.

Dankie. Julle het my oortuig. Ek bly maar by die voet-beheer. Ek gebruik ook die overdrive teen lang opdraendes. Die Prado hou dan met gemak sy spoed.

Hi

Maar niks vir die prado90 nie 1997 -2003

Laat weet asseblief of iemand het, wat dit nie meer gebruik nie. Dankie

Hallo Bram

Ek sien jy het ook n probleem gehad met die liggie by die "gear lever". Is dit n vreeslike mission om dit reg te maak? Moet mens die hele centre console losmaak en afhaal?
Groete uit Danabaai!
