Thread: Prado v6 2007

    Prado v6 2007

    Hi, I'm looking at buying a 2007 prado. Petrol, auto with 90000 kms for $25000. The car would mostly be used by the missus for around town and the occasional trip to Stockton beach in Newcastle, and a bit camping. Prado is in excellent condition well looked after and serviced. Not sure wether to buy the petrol prado for 25000 or a diesel with 180000 for the same price. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Hey Wazza,

    Here's a regression of 19 Prado GXL petrols from carsales, includes autos and manuals;



    I get the average price for an 07 with 90,000km at $26620. That $25K figure you've been quoted is a good market buy price right now!

    Best

    Question

    Hi, Am in the process of buying a 2007 (upgraded) prado grande car has done just under 200ks. I have test driven the car and also did a State road inspection, the mechanic who did the inspection stated a few things about the car,

    The Automatic Transmission Oil Condition: Requires Service.

    Front Brake pads are worn low and will need replacing/servicing including disc rotors as required. Light Brake shudder caused by disc rotor warpage- will need disc rotors machined/replaced to rectify.

    Thump at transmission when pulling up at times, will need further investigator/service. I Believe it's the tail shaft problem commonly seen on prado and other Toyota vehicles, but this car has done nearly 200ks and this confuses me as most people here have had the issue sorted by itself after reaching high kms.

    Traction control lights come on when driving - Will need further investigation/repairs.

    Rear third row headrests are missing.

    The car has few(110k to 170k) missing service record. there are few more things like missing spare wheel cover etc which am not worried about.

    The car was at the workshop getting roadworthy done at the time of inspection and the state-road guy said that the ABS lights could be because of them (workshop guys) servicing the abs? or breaks.

    Now to give you an overview, I test drove 3 grandes so far and this was the Best one among them the price is not cheap, in fact it's almost 4 or 5 k more expensive than the other ones i test drove.
    From all the conversation i have had with the seller, i Think they will get a roadworthy and that's about it- so Ive got a feeling that the drive line issues may not be sorted but its still at the workshop getting things done.

    Also forgot to mention that I will be driving this car to Darwin (from Melbourne) in a week time (if i end up getting this) and My wife will be using it for few months there. will will bring the car back to VIC by end of this year.

    I have attached a few pics from the inspection report.
    I would like to hear your opinion on this car. is it worth getting it?

    OP- sorry for hijacking your thread, Thought its better to post here than opening a new one.

    Thanks
