Toyota Prado Never Again

Toyota Prado VX 2018 goes into limp mode when towing a Caravan, the car is regular serviced by Toyota. ( what a waste of money) Our local Dealer doesn’t not know what the problem is. Toyota is well aware of the problems but will not fix it. DPF and other problems. That Engine is Toyota’s worst nightmare
The 2019 model has also the same problems. After driving Toyotas 4x4 for more than 20 years I believe there are better cars for that money.
Looks like we have sell the car to tow our Caravan again.

  J150 Kakadu 4 Cylinder, 3 Litre

The lemon that keeps giving

I own a 2010 Kakadu. Imagine driving a car that could blow its pistons at any time due to a known fault. Imagine being stuck on a narrow mountain road with an over heated transmission that was fully serviced just a week ago. Imagine your gearbox has a nasty clunck when dropping back down from 3rd to 2nd on a slow steep hill. And these are all known issues. It is also quite prone to rust on the underside.
I have owned several Pajero Exceeds over the last 18yrs and never had a major issue. This Prado 150 is incredibly disappointing and I do not recommend them. Show details

  J150 Kakadu 4 Cylinder, 2.8 Litre

Great family car

We purchased this vehicle as an upgrade to our previous vehicle.
We use it for family, sports and off road daily.
Car gets serviced every 6 months which is ok. Previous vehicle was yearly.
Turning circle is great considering the size of the vehicle.
7 seater spacious in back and front. Show details

Great Prado

I only have Mazda CX-9 and my dad owns a Tesla but a friend has a Prado. I ride in it. It rides a lot firmer than the land cruisers which makes it a little less fun to ride. The smaller than land cruiser size is perfect for carrying large items and shopping but fuel consumption isn't any better than land cruiser Show details

Great adventure car. Love it

Bought the Prado GXL 2022 and so far it has been perfect. Comfortable ride, great fuel economy and looks amazing. Recently drove from Sydney to Queensland only using half a tank. Managed to fit all the luggage in the boot with 4 passengers and with some room left. The drive up was comfortable and it drove like a dream. The manoeuvrability was surprising good. Managed to squeeze into tight parking spots with nil issues. The interior feels a little outdated but that’s not a big issue. The paintwork and the exterior of the car is made to a high quality. To bad someone already reversed into my car while parked! Over all I’m extremely happy with the car. Will eventually take it off road which is the main reason I got the car. Show details

My New Prado

Had this new Gun Metal Toyota Prado for two weeks now , what i like the best about it is i have better vison with having ther spare tyre under the car now rather then on the back tailgate , so it does reduce the fuel tank capacity but who cares , i rather see more on what is happening when driving , The Technology has increased since i had my last one i got in 2018 but the saftey features are really up there and its a much safer vehicle to drive , i recommend anyone looking for a new 4 x 4 check out the Land Cruiser Prado. Show details

Almur , i would suggest refer to the Manual for this one as you may need to do this change when out back and this will need a step by Step by the manual.

I have a 2016 GDJ150, Diesel. It has a problem with idle speed. When it is cold and in Park, the idle is around 650RPM, As it is in drive, when stopped at the lights etc. When the engine reaches normal operating temperature the idle speed when stopped at lights etc is 1000 RPM., it is also the 1000 when in Park. The odd thing is when reverse is then selected it drops back to 650. Then Drive is selected and its still 650, but then climbs again to 1000 after a short drive. Any ideas on this problem would be appreciated. Currently this is destroying the fuel economy. Thank you.
