    Thanks Jwagener, Hienri.

    Hy bestuur soos n droom. Ek kan nie glo ek het so lank gewag om een te kry nie. Maar nou ja, goeie dinge vir die wat wag. Probeer gou die fotos oplaai.

    Smile

    Just some feedback on my purchase.

    I have now had the Prado for 1 week exactly. I know it's to early to really draw up a pro's vs cons list but just for the fun of it, i did.

    Pros

    It drives like a dream. It is super silent. It kinda sounds like there is no engine at all. Of course when you gear down, you can hear the power, but otherwise... sound like im gliding and riding on air.

    The aircon is great. Yip... I know it's not why you buy a car, but it takes about 5 - 10 second for it to be completely cold and great to know you can cool the car down in a couple of second as opposed to some other car's aircons. It's still winter, but I can feel summer is coming and the powerful aircon will come in handy.

    Love the dash and the interior. I can also see that if you take care of it, it will last many years. It's a 2005 and inspecting it, you will not say that at all.


    Cons

    The Radio!!! Yip... It's not great. No RDS, No MP3 Support etc etc etc... But once again, you don't buy a car for it's sound... Well atleast I dont. It will definitely be upgraded in the next 3 months. Still searching. But the addition of RDS would have been welcomed. However, it's not a deal breaker at all.



    Still undecided about one thing.

    The Petrol usage. I am averaging 13.8L/100km. Most of the driving was done in and around town with only about 50km on the highway. So even if it does shoot up to 14.5 - 15.0, I think it will still be okay for me. You have to realise that the 2.1 Ton beast will not move itself. But i'm sure I will give some more feedback with regards to fuel cosumption after a few tanks. Still early days now.


    But yeah, all in all, so far so good. It's by far the best vehicle that I have driven in my life.

    Now time for some mods.....
    Any suggestions

    Ek dink ons moet 'n plekkie skep net vir die 120. Daar is werklik baie ander voertuie wat ook wonderlik is, maar ek dink meeste 120 eienaars voel dat hulle s'n net so bietjie meer spesiaal is. Ek het my eie een, maar elke keer as ek iemand sien een koop of selfs net verby een ry raak ek 'n tikkie jaloers.

    Op die radio. Ek stem heeltemal saam. Dit kan beter. Dit is baie beter as 'n Navara s'n byvoorbeeld, maar nie cutting edge in vandag se terme nie. Ek sal sterk aan beveel dat jy kyk na een van daardie touch screen navigasie en MP3 en Blue tooth all-in-one toestelle kyk. Dit kos nogal, maar jy gaan jou 120 nog lank ry en hoe vror jy dit insit, hoe meer kry jy daaruit. So dit is die eerste MOD wat ek kan aanbeveel.

    Volgende: Bash plate voor. Ek het my vorige een lekker gebuig. Lynx maak 'n ordentlike een. Kyk na die opsie om dit te lig. Hy sleep soms in diep sand. Maak net seker jy sit die beste in. OME het myne meer soos 'n bakkie laat voel. EFS or look at Mikem Suspension?

    krouxsa, i have the same complaints about the radio... I just bought a little FM transmitter from a local electronics shop (R160) and it works like a treat with my phone / iPod...

    there is plenty of space for it as well...

    I have used them but found some feedback from the engine that interfered. But as a temporary solution it can work. But im always trying to guess which station im tuned into. So the RDS is really a feature that they realy could have build in. But i also think since the rest of the dash and instrumentals are good looking, the radio must be replaced as well. That tape deck really boggles my mind. Any other car made in 2003 that came out with a tape deck? Haha... Maybe they had to fill the dimensions of the console and that was the best they came up with. Still its a minor. It can be replaced easily.

    Ouens.... julle moet duimvashou. Pas 'n aanbod gemaak op 'n 2006 met 154000 km vir R250k! Puik toestand! daars een of twee klein goedjies wat hulle nog gaan moet uitsort, Maar dinge lyk belowend!

    Hulle het 'n baie sleg prys vir die Terrios aangebied vir trade-In, wat amper die deal gekelder het. Maar Daihatsu het toe vorendag gekom met 'n Baie goeie prys.

    As alles goed gaan het ek teen die einde van die week 'n Hilux EN 'n Prado.

    Dealer het my sopas gebel.... Hulle het 'n fout gemaak in die ad! die prys is eintlik R270k. Ek het hulle vertel van so 'n funny ding wat CPA genoem word en dat ek my gaan hou by die prys soos geadverteer. Die DP het toegegee. Prys bly staan! (Maar ek kan nie meer vra vir discount)

    Hulle bring hom weer vanmiddag vir my sodat ek hom met 'n fyn kammetjie kan deurdraf.

    Hoop regtig dit kom af..

    Waar is die dealer? Ek het ook so 'n ervaring gehad by een in Gesina. Dealer = Stealer? Staan op jou regte en kam hom fyn deur. As alles reg lyk gaan jy die ryding van jou lewe koop. Geniet. Kyk in nuutste Wegry se ho kilometer seksie. Daar is een met 406 kkm en die eienaar het nog net bande, skokbrekers en battery vervang.
