    Do you mean inside the vehicle? Thats not supposed to happen. Check that all of the rubbers are seated properly.
    I never had a problem in the 6 years I owned a Tuna.

    1) Don't drive with the windows open
    2) Drive with aircon on and recirculate option OFF

    If it still happens, then you have a serious rubber seal issue.

    New GD6 Fortuner?

    My Fortuner does not seal nearly as well as both the Prados I had, on all doors. Guess those small things that makes up the price difference.

    What he said.
    Recirculate must be OFF.

    I get dust in the FJ as well if the air is on circulate. I suppose the vibrating panels in the vehicle sucks in air and dust if there is no positive cabin pressure. Let the pollen filter take care of any possible dust sucked in via the vents...so yes, do not use the circulate option...

    Had a similar problem with one of my Pajero's and a Datsun bakkie years ago.

    Check inside your rear bumper below the tail lights, there are usually vents which are covered by a rubber flap. (These vents are there for a number of reasons but one is so that you can shut your car doors when the windows are closed. The air pressure without these vents would not able you to shut the door. When you close your door the rubber flap blows open to release the pressure and falls closed again so that you don't take in dust on the road or water when doing a river crossing.)

    What happened on my vehicles was that one of these rubber flaps would somehow get deformed and remain permanently semi open thus drawing dust in. Getting to it is probably the hardest part but cut it off and glue a similar sized rubber in its place.

    Hope this helps

    It could be worse, you could be driving a Defender

    But seriously, you need to somehow create positive pressure inside the vehicle, and check all your seals. Defenders have these vents under the windscreen, yet for some reason I haven't really used them yet. I often need a shovel to get the sand out the back.
    A sure sign that there is in fact intelligent life elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has bothered contacting us.
