Anyone know this 3.0 Diesel??

Anyone know this 3.0 Diesel??

Postby ricster » 30 Jul 2015 14:00

A mate of mine rolled his diesel Prado a few days ago and well.... the Prado she is finished. Luckily my mate walked out of the wreck with just a few bruises and a stiff neck and a sore foot.

So now he is looking for a replacement..... He is looking for a Patrol/Cruizer/Discovery type vehicle as he is not the smallest chap I know and he will look a little out of place in a Nissan Micra....hahaha

Petrol is not an option as its going to be a daily drive. So diesel it will have to be. The old school 4.2 is not ideal for him as he needs a little more zip and the turbo 4.2s can deliver that, but he still prefers the fuel consumption of the 3.0 better for daily driving in town and on the highway.

Does anyone know this vehicle? Frans ?? dis net om die hoek van jou? It is a 2001 but the motor has been rebuilt so possibly everything has been resolved?

Not a bad price if it checks out, I'd suggest your buddy gives Frans a call.

Ja .... Very smart looking !! just a matter of ensuring the motor is good and strong. My mate is not a mechanically minded dude, so would prefer it if it is 100% sorted with all the NADS stuff before he takes a 3.0 diesel.

Cedric I believe that Patrol belongs to a forum member and I'm pretty sure it's the one in this post. I remember that front bumper from Maniacs. As far as I can remember all the issues were sorted in the end.

I think hes expecting too much, especially if I look at what he wants for the extras in the add.
If you consider there have been a couple of newer shape 4.8's 2005/6 around same price... and this with an engine thats had an overhaul!!

Wouldnt touch this ...

1) Price
2) 2001
3) Engine Rebuild
4) Unknown service history

If your mate needs a vehicle to replace/ rival a prado, he's gonna have to do better than this cause a prado is probably the most well rounded, reliable, multipurpose vehicles in the world, and def the best all rounder to come out of Toyota Stable, better all rounder than even the cruisers.

I would love to see your mate in a patrol, but i reckon there's better examples out there than this.

Whats his R? limit..

Russ, it depends on what he gets out from the insurance, but around the R130k mark. He is going to look around a bit too but will see what he comes up with.

But yeah that is a bit pricey for a 2001. A motor rebuild may not be a bad thing, then the motor should be good ..... if done correctly !!
