    Any reputable car dealer will provide that info using their bank approved trade and retail guide books.

    However, since a lot of features might have been extras, would you want a base value or a final value?

    In 2008, I purchased my 5th Land Cruiser - A 200 Series VX from a Toyota dealership in Durban (Kingsmead) for a just under ZAR 880,000... It was fitted some extras such as a Warn 9,000 Lb winch, different tyres from OEM, and a towbar and etc...

    I live in Ballito, and it was serviced at the Toyota dealership in Gateway (Umhlanga Rocks area) At 138,000 a light came on on the dash, which I was told were the EGR (Exhaust Gas Reticulation Valves) which the Toyota people charged ZAR 14,500.00 to fix. 6,000 kms further the light came on again, so I took it back. (I only use this vehicle for towing and long trips as it is too big for regular city running around.) It sat with them for over a month and they did nothing, apart from tell me it was intermittent, but they were too busy to do anything more about it!...

    I removed it from them and gave it to a local, highly qualified mechanic who works on vehicles himself. He service my other vehicles, and is one of the finest mechanics I have ever met. He is not a "spanner boy" who just replaces parts. He tested the vehicle and had to remove the engine which took over 24 man-hours (That's how long it takes to remove one of these engines) He told me that there were no were no spanner marks on the bolts of the EGR valves! But on further inspection he did find one turbo was blown, one attenuator was malfunctioning, and the Cat converter was seized, and the water pump had rust marks!

    I immediately notified Toyota SA directly, and after an inspection by their local representative, and numerous vigorous discussions, Toyota SA instructed a Toyota dealership in Newcastle (who have the correct tooling which was installed there by Toyota SA) who removed the whole vehicle and loose engine, and ended up replacing the entire engine with a brand new engine, including a new fuel pump, and uptake in the fuel tank etc... At no charge. They also fully reimbursed the mechanic who removed the engine..... The point I am making is that no matter what anyone says, you choose a Toyota because of the professional back-up that Toyota SA provides.

    My vehicle is running beautifully with its new engine and and our insurers have insured it at an agreed value because it isn't really a 2008 model. A 2008 Land Cruiser with a new engine should not be valued according to "The Book" as dealerships like to dictate... Do you believe that they would sell a 2008 model with a new 2018 engine for the same price as a 2008 model...according the "The Book"? Just saying...

    BTW: I have been in the transport industry for >40 years, have had fleets of Volvo, of Scania, and Internationals, as well as having had >30 support vehicles (Toyota), and this is my 5th Land Cruiser. ( My son is on his second Land Cruiser.....I have never had, or signed ONE warranty on any vehicle... I only purchased vehicles in terms of The Common Laws of SA, and my Common Law rights, which entitle any owner to receive vehicles free of any latent or patent defects.

    That means in effect, that any motor vehicle dealer only sells vehicles on behalf of the manufacturer... The only reason why they issue a warranty is to ring-fence a contractual obligation to repair certain elements, and parts of that vehicle. You accept that, and you are ring-fencing yourself by legal contract, and also ring-fencing your rights. Dealerships are given a percentage of their sales as "Returns funding" to cover them on minor claims, which is why they will wriggle when asked to fix stuff which doesn't work through no fault of the customer, and that's what really upsets customers... The dealerships are also trying maximise their profitability, and what they don't have to pay for repairs, goes onto their bottom line...

    Most dealers will will shy away, and refuse to sell a vehicle under Common Law rights, but that is sheer ignorance on their part!.... The Common Laws of SA protect both the dealerships (Sellers), as well as the customers... If you don't believe me, feel free to ask an attorney who will confirm what I say...

    I have been a loyal Toyota supporter for >40 years for good reason...Hope this helps anybody contemplating the purchase of any vehicle.

    Hi Tim,
    Your experience with Toyota South Africa is extraordinary - would that all manufacturers responded this way. When I got to the end of your post, read about your business (logistics?), purchasing of lots of vehicles and saw your previous CEO position, my cynical nature wondered if Toyota SA didn't make a commercial decision to look after an important customer (or potential customer). Not sure if us ordinary owners would have got the same treatment. The irony is that if they were to follow a similar pattern with all their customers they would achieve a huge loyal following - at a fraction of the millions they spend on ad campaigns every year.

    Good Observation.
    Having owned a Toyota for 8 years, all I can comment is that there is nothing special about TSA, or driving and owning a Toyota, compared to other brands I have had.
