    200 series in my eyes is a soft roader.

    I'll stick to the 70 series cruisers, one for leisure and one as a work horse.

    The 3.5 twin t V6 petrol in a 70 would be awesome! But I guess that is something we can only dream of...

    Yes, maybe, maybe not, but I think that might be a possibility in future, seeing that the V8 may? not be available in future.

    IMHO if ATF overheated once it is toast and should be replaced ASAP.
    Interesting point. Toyota never recommended this even when the tech saw it happen.

    It's well documented that ATF is for life and never has to be replaced in Toyota's opinion, it's however similarly well documented that many users find this to be BS and found that replacing ATF as preventative maintenance at higher kilos or if they experienced some box issues made a big difference.

    A few years back a friend had to practically beg Toyota to replace the ATF on his v6 Hilux after he cooked it due to his own stupidity, even though he said he cooked it and could clearly smell it being cooked, they still insisted that the ATF in that box never has to be changed and that it will be just fine.

    We just got news Today that one of the off road racing Hiluxes is now fitted with the 3.5 Twin Turbo engine instead of the V8! But we don't know yet if Giniel or Lategaan will drive it!

    I am not a Toyota man. Had a Hilux which was a disaster and later a D4D Fortuner which did exactly what it said on the box.

    That said, any Cruiser Wagon, 200 or new 300, can fill my garage at anytime. They are what they are - big, bold & indestructable. Certainly not a softroader. They are the Alpha dogs of SUV's (that actually makes it out of Sandton).

    Maybe one day when I do less kms per year...........from a non-fan nogal.

    Bruce, I wouldn't be worried about the "clunk". When you put the gear selector into P, the gearbox is not under any strain since it is in neutral. It is a locking mechanism on the prop shaft which prevents the shaft from turning. That thing is designed to do what it does, even clunk when parked up or down hill.

    No emotions at all. Just noticed he has a dislike for one specific 200 that he owed.

    If he is that objective, im sure he will not let his experiences with his 200 cloud his 300 experience.

    Judging by his response, that is that is the case in fact.

    Strange, in the FJ owner's manual the service schedule shows that the ATF must be checked every 40k km and changed when necessary.

    Is this on the TSA service schedules as well or only in the owners manual?

    Maybe @JWR can chime in here, but as far as I have it, TSA is of the opinion that ATF is for life.

    Interesting for me to see that the 3.5 v6 petrol is running a watercooled intercooler with 2 additional radiators to keep the intercooler cool . I just can't see if its running a seperate cooling system or if it is somehow integrated into the standard cooling , I do see that it has its own electric waterpump , giving me the idea it is probably seperate !

    No, some dealership workshop managers might be of the opinion that it's sealed for life.
    And since hardly anyone reads the owner's manual properly, they get away with it and these rumours are being spread.
    People should stick to facts more often.

    True. But it is a much smaller car. I mentioned fortuner its space configuration is near identical to 300.

    It's about so much more than getting somewhere...
    By the way, it is okay, perfectly ok to differentiate oneself if it makes u happy. You can work hard and play hard. I know a folks that can afford to have a G63 every year, but his love for the green earth makes him buy every new Yaris 1.0 and he is very happy.

    But truth remains, some toys are simple symbols of display of status. And what a boring world it would have been for everyone if we were guilty of showing off to each other.

    It's not just about displaying status, etc. A 200 or 300 cruiser will be infinitely better "screwed together" than the bakkie based Fortuner. You can already feel that difference between a Prado and a Fortuner, and I am sure a Cruiser will be just a big of a jump in perceived quality and NVH levels.
