    there are no issues with the color brother. black and white sell easily.

    If you can maintain a black colored jeep, go ahead with the deal

    In Prado's, black is the color with highest resale.

    2003 shape is around 35. The ones above 4M are 2004 or 2005 with new engine.
    2003 petrol sometimes do sell around 38 too.

    Diesel sells a bit lower than that.

    But, then again, people who want a diesel can't find one these days as they are very few in number.

    Dene jao to 30ki hy. Lene jao to 35 ya is se bhi oopar ki.

    Okay but now a days u can see it ur self that people are demanding too much for those jeeps maybe its due to the political situation of the country.

    Actually my mechanic was saying that black color is not usually preferred but I personally love a black prado with tints... <3

    Bhai mere, if a mechanic comments about the engine or suspension durability, it may be considered but nothing other than that

    its a truck - who cares what color it is as long as its not pink, yellow or flourescent green. If you are so worried about the "market" of the colour then best not buy this truck as you will be thinking everyday about what would happen next.

    IMO relax and use the truck.

    Mechanic's opinion must only be considered as long as it is related to engine, suspension etc.

    Color choice is yours. It is mine. It is every user's choice. A mechanic has got nothing to do with it my dear.

    Sir with all due respect this is pakistan... And we guys are not that rich ke humare abo ki mill lagi hai so we would have to sell that jeep after sometime so market value is considered important in our case and in pakistan color is considered important as pearl white is preferred more and hence people pay more for pearl white while green color is preferred less while its not such a bad color it gives beautiful shine when detailed. This is the example which im giving u as am facing this problem currently.

    Yup but actually he also deals in the cars and he told me that black color is preferred less so the market price is also less... Is it true?
