  2. Re: What's it worth? Toyota Prado vx kzj95 2001

    It is subjective, but I've owned them all, '99 KZTE, 2004 120 V6 and now a 2010 150 V6. And I can honestly say the 120 for me was the best. I'd swap mine for an '09 V6 120 in a heart beat if I could...

  4. Re: What's it worth? Toyota Prado vx kzj95 2001

    Re: Buying a late 2009 Prado 150 vx

    I think a one way plane ticket to Lanseria and an uber to the dealership may be the best money you can spend. Then a leisurely drive down to CT and bond with your new car.
