For the record, Toyota's worst is 2LT......the 2L motor( the one you mentioned... without the turbo) runs forever!!!
Cherokee ....power being the added attraction, it's good value for money owing to it's poor resale.
Surf, except for the new generation( '03 onwards), has interior resembling something close to a coffin box!!!
Prado '93-4.....shaped like an ambulance...... the word 'oudated' is the politest comment I can manage!
But if Prado it is....'96 with the 1kz motor is the way to go. Despite all my UNFONDNESS for Toyotas, this one has my vote....power, looks, parts, price,.....all neatly packaged into one!
But hey, if you are planning to spend only around a mil, the 2800 Pajero is a good choice with decent power, looks,abundant spares and loads of accesories! Look for ones auctioned by diplomats in Isloo!
