Re: RE: Re: Advice

Ahmed, from the sound of it I'm inclined to say no. I might be wrong of course and it all depends on the actual condition of the vehicle over all. I have to wonder if there is anything being 'hidden' under vinyl wrap, and not knowing would be of serious concern to me. Then there's the 'investment' ...

Re: RE: Re: 3.0 d4d vs 4.0 v6 150 prado

IF for some reason you do get the D4D, just remember to make sure u=it has the upgrade doen by TSA on that gearbox. Something to do with the box overhating when towing. They fitted an oil cooler I think, and TSA lowered the towing capacity specs on the Diesel. There is, of course, also the 200 Petr...

Re: RE: Re: 3.0 d4d vs 4.0 v6 150 prado

[emoji106] No probs Ahmed Sorry I got your name wrong............ Go drive both, and decide. But the V6 is a nice car. Nice engine, nice gearbox = nice 4x4. They're hevy(ish), yes - but if we both start and drive to CT and back, with the V6 following the Diesel at the Diesel's speed, there's not TH...

Re: RE: Re: 3.0 d4d vs 4.0 v6 150 prado

Mohamed Make your sums........... V6 is, say, 2 km/litre heavier than the D4D. The V6 is bot that heavy, as in 5/6, and the D4D Prado is not that light, as in 9/10. Ant that's the only negative.....D4D is : 1) Lazier 2) More expensive to service 3) More expensive to fix 4) It had an issue with the ...

Re: RE: Re: 3.0 d4d vs 4.0 v6 150 prado

NOPE. the fuel difference over those few kilometers wont make any difference to your monthly fuel bill. And for the longer runs the V6 will be as light as your right foot .... For what you describe I would certainly go for the PETROL Thanks Chris U really helped and made my decision easy Really app...

Re: RE: Re: 3.0 d4d vs 4.0 v6 150 prado

How many kilometers will you be doing with it ? Daily driver, with the occasional trip : D-4D Mostly just the holiday runs : V6 !!!! You wont get much better than 9km/l on the D-4D. You will probably average 6 km/l on the V6 .. depending on the weight of your right foot ..., some do claim to get 7k...

3.0 d4d vs 4.0 v6 150 prado

Good day guys I know I previously posted a similar question I'm still stuck really don't know which to get Is the d4d slightly low on power for vehicles it's size and will services be more costly, but I'll get better consumption Or the v6 better as it has more power also I'd it that heavy on petrol,...

Re: RE: Re: Which prado to get

I have a 2007 Prado V6 and it is great! :) It is heavy on juice though, the gauge shows around 16L per 100kms. I have chipped it and put a free flow to try and help the consumption, but can't say it made a huge difference with consumption, maybe around half a liter or so. Did give more power though...
