    Default Landcruiser 76 SW service (200 000km)

    Hey folks,

    I've just gone over the 200 000 km mark in my Landcruiser 76 station wagon (4.2l diesel) and am now due for a big service (minimum cost of around R10 500 at my local dealership). Given the mileage - how much of an impact do you think servicing the vehicle myself will have on its resale value? The vehicle is wholly owned by me, and there are no warranties at play here. I have had the vehicle serviced at all the requisite intervals up to 190 000 km.

    Cheers
    Clayton

    If you ever sell privately then not much.
    If you ever trade, well that will give them a reason to knock a few rand off the offer.

    I have never used a dealership and have always got good prices when I've sold a vehicle.
    One can see when a vehicle has been looked after or abused.

    Just keep a detailed record with dates of every service. Km, work done, parts replaced, invoices etc.

    I think your 200kkm service includes the hub service (every 40kkm)??

    Isnt your belt replacement also due then?? (every 100000km??)

    I would personally get it done by Toyota, ONLY for the sake of the Toyota stamp.

    I'm with Petri on this one. If the vehicle had all it services done at Toyota up to 200k km, why start skimping now. Don't get blinded by the R10k price tag. Get some of the work done on time and do the rest a month later.

    Iíve just had my 120k service, which is similar. My dealer knocked 10% off the price without me even asking, might be worth a shot.

    If you have all the tools and knowhow, do it yourself.
    Just take it in for a valve gap check and set if you feel the need.
    I believe that the belt is only at 150K, so check that it was done and rest easy if it was. If not, this is also an easy DIY job.
    If you are nervious about the hubs, take it in for just that.
    Use the Toyota specified coolant as well.

    I agree. Have the critical elements (belts, hubs, valve shims etc) done by a dealer and the rest by an indie or yourself. No use paying the same high labour rates for oil & filter changes.
