    Re: 2022 Prado V6 TDI

    That will just be sad.

    If the petrol LC300 engine is available in the Lexus platkarre since 2017 why not something worthy like the Prado? It deserves a better engine.

    Re: 2022 Prado V6 TDI

    I reckon it is a given that it will come with the V6 diesel towards the end of next year.

    The Prado J70 was on the market for 6 years, J90 6 years, J130 7 years and the J150 is a whopping 12 years...

    That's totally cool, there's nothing wrong with a good restomod. It's your car you can do whatever you want with it.

    My Corolla is nou net oor 40 000km en kort 'n ernstige "skim". They don't make them like they used to. Voriges het darem 330 000 km gehaal sonder probleme.

    The suction control valves can cause a lot of strange issues and is a fairly common problem on the Mitsubishi's. Rough idling is one of the symptoms. By the sound of it yours is something else.

    Well an automatic gearbox automatically selects the best gear/ratio for a specific situation but is limited by the number of ratios.

    Re: Corolla Cross launched

    You need to know how to drive a CVT properly to make it work for you.

    I average 17,5 km/L (mixed, calculated) with my 1.8 CVT which I reckon is phenomenal for a NA petrol Auto.
