I m planning to buy Prado TZ 96-00 (5 Door) , which i think i could fetch at less than 2M. I m buying this vehicle for off road mountain adventures. Pl guide me is this 12-15 years old vehicle still reliable, comfortable and tough to take for adventurous trips. What is the major prob in the car and which things should i check before buying one. Also tell me, is this 3000 cc desiel engine 6 cylinder or 4.
Thanks in advance for ur advice.
I think you've got enough advice from members already...
nomi bhai but i need ur experience and expert advice, i m getting 97 tx limited for 19 lac, in very good condition, my friend owns it for last 2 years and i know he drives very well and never used it offroad.
Well...go for it...in city, my 1kz (96 model prado tz) used to give me 5-6 kmpl...and on highway it gave around 8-9kmpl. If you care about its oil change / oil filter, then it wont give you any problems inshAllah. Also, dont leave the 4x4 transmission un used for a long period of time, or its chain would get stuck.
i m having tz 1997 converted to petrol 3.4l its like a rocket and having a good mileage and i dont think u will get it for less than 2.4m in petrol as its enginge is only for 275k well to have it in a petrol is very good wish u best of luk
