    Default Thinking of buying Prado old shape (advice needed)

    I was going to buy a new Honda Civic, but I have a big family and want to buy a 7 seater car. My idea is that I can probably get an old shape Prado for almost the same price as a new Civic. i.e. around 18-20 lac.


    I have no knowledge about Prados, the differnet type of models, what are the common problems with it. What kind of fuell consumption I should expect out of it. How expensive are common parts suh as Air filter/oil filter etc.


    What should I look for when selecting one and most of all is it even advisable to buy it ?


    Will appreciate comments from knowledgable users.


    Thank a lot

    Glad I came across this thread. I very nearly bought one of these old Prado's also.
    Have seen a couple of nice examples but decided it against it. Im also a new car kind of guy and have kept nice big cars abroad. I recently sold my Civic prosmatic 4 months old and thought id go for a big jeep. Problem is they are too old and smelly. As has been said cant beat a new car. So I guess i'm back to the drawing board again.

    By the way I havent seen any 97 Prado for 17-18 lakh. For a decent example they are asking 24-25 lakh. Maybe i have been looking in the wrong places. I suspect the 17 lakh versions must be very bad examples.

    Here is a simple advice.

    1) Prado old shape comes from 1996 to 2002
    2) You cant et a good prado for 17 lacs at all
    3) good 1996 to 1997 prado could be get for 19.5 to 2.3 million (a complete trouble free car)
    4) Mileage of 150000 are normal on these machines as 1KZ engine could go for 300000km with ease without overhauling.
    5) I have kept 4 of these machines in past five years and believe me that it is excellent, i have gone from karachi to khunjrab 3 imes on these machines with no issues at all.
    6) Diesel average of this jeep is 7km fixed in city and 10.5 to 11 in highway mode as at going 110km/h engine revs only at 2800RPM
