    Default Is this vehicle deal good value???

    Hi I am helping out a friend who is in the market for a Fortuner and somewhere he has either seen, or been offered the following vehicle but he doesn't know if its good value or not. So please can the forum give input on this. The asking price is R390000

    It seems he has seriously done his checking and he says the vehicle is in immaculate condition and the reason for the sale is that the guy is going to work overseas and he wont be able to use it. Here is what we know


    2011 Fortuner 4x4 auto D-4D, white, 100000Km, FSH with Toyota, extended toyota warranty to 180000km.

    The vehicle comes fitted with the following extras already

    LAsport bullbar with sump guard
    EFS Elite suspension
    Cooper STT Mud terrain tyres (+/- 95% left) - The original Bridgestone duelers are also available if wanted
    Front runner roof rack with gas bottle bracket and ammo box corner holders and tie down hooks
    Rock sliders
    Outback extreme rear swing arm (with the spare tyre on)
    Rear view camera
    75 liter long range tank
    Front runner draws
    Takla seat covers all round
    Plug and plug engine chip (I was told it gets taken out at service time)
    Kenwood DVD media player
    Dual battery

    So if I was him I would buy it because all the accessories alone are well over R100000 and if I look at the market the asking price is basically in line with other offers that dont have anything fitted.

    What do you guys think.

    oh PS it can be financed as a friend of his owns a dealership and is willing to put it on their books to help with the sale. Wow a great bonus if you ask me.

    thats R147 000 more than a 4 year old with 100 000km on it, with no warranty or service plan....

    insurance will be about the same.

    No idea what the retail value is but a quick search on Carfind shows you that the price is a bit optimistic. Most expensive one on this site (same specs with 50k on the clock) is R350k.

    Your friend will have to decide whether he is willing to see the premium as payment for the extras, I wouldn't pay more than retail for a car even if it had extras.

    Hi, do you have any idea of what the extent of incentives are? I know there is a new butt ugly fortuner coming next year and they certainly want to move all stock they can before, but i doubt they would give incentive around the R100K + mark.
    it does have a warranty for a further 80000km with toyota so it would be covered for almost the same amount of time as a new one. I see that as a Im not sure about service plan but Toyota only offer to 90000 as standard.
