    Pajero Gen4 LWB or Prado 150.... problem in this price range and your intention to keep forever is the mileage may be a little high.

    Alternatively a Fortuner or Paj Sport.

    Personally I would wait for an MU-X to become more affordable.

    Pajero 3.2 would be my first, second and third choice. You own a Triton already, so you understand why I say this

    N vriendin van my het so rukkie terug vir my gevra vir opinie: fortuner, of pajero 3.2.

    Ek s toe pajero os def die nicer voertuig, maar hul onderhoud is ietwat duurder (my persepsie, ek het nog nie een van twee besit), maar hulle besit reeds n triton, so hulle sal weet oor onderhoud van n mitsi.

    Elkgeval, my voorstel, nadat hulle genoem het dat onderhoud op triton nie n probleem was sovr, was, go for it, vat die pajero.

    Nou voel ek soos n aambei. Hulle het die ding 6 maande, en sit met n moertoe engine wat basies meer gaan kos om te herstel as n klein voertuig se verkoopsprys.

    Met hindsight, moes hulle die fortuner gevat het...

    Was going to say that, but seeing that he's got a baby and plans on keeping the vehicle for long, the Prado might be the better choice. FJs aren't really that family friendly.

    That is uncalled for. You don't even know his wife. Not all woman are made the same. We all know how hard the ride is in Toyota and the hard ride and bouncy suspension (that only Toyota can manage to get wrong) is even noticed by the most casual observer.

    Anycase seeing that it has already been mentioned a second hand Amarok is definitely the one to go for. Even a second hand Touareg would be absolutely perfect. Nothing else will even come close I promise you

    I will not buy any VW product secondhand without motor plan or Warranty. Repair costs can quickly ruin a sale that were intended to be a bargain. I know I were about to spend R50k on my Swambo`s Volla bus at 120k km. In fact I will not drive any new High Tech vehicle outside motor plan or warranty. Doing a head on a 2.0l VW engine is R100k straight from your budget.

    Safest buy is FJ or Prado.

    It is not what you buy its what you build.
