    NB - I am not mechanically minded by any stretch, so my queries are genuine (before I also get labled)
    Nys I think 15k and higher km service intervals is fine for vehicles traveling tarred roads only. I think that the operating environment
    dictates the service intervals I in person will follow.

    Does not matter what oil you use if contaminants enter the oil it will be ruined. If you use oil samples it is sometimes shocking what the state of oil could be. The oil I had analyzed on the VW bus showed high levels of silica. Which pointed to a not so effective air filter system.

    Even if a manufacturer states a 15k and higher service intervals I would at least take an oil sample at 10k km.
    Then very few people push their vehicles to high miles. Most vehicles get sold before they are out of warranty or motor plan.
    I am sure most engines today will see 100k km without any oil change. The benefit of frequent services will only been seen at very high kilometers.

    I have opened engines that were badly neglected that needed a rebuild at 160k km. Have seen the inners of many engines at 500k km with little or no wear.

    I do agree with Francois Theron that Toyota might play save with their 10k service interval.

    Partly correct, some Toyota models are on par with the rest of the world (including Brazil). Taxed to death!

    You made my point for me

    The advertised warranty of the 300, like the Fortuner, is three years. Yet loads of Fortuners gets sold with much longer warranties as standard.

    Let's just breathe and calm down to panic and see with what warranty the 300 actually gets sold.

    If the 300 does not fulfill a person's needs, move along to something else that does. Why moan about it like 2 year olds.

    That is why I think Toyota took their eye of the ball... Agree with you 100%, but why offer the Lexus with a 7 year warranty and not the Land Cruiser? Of all the off road SUVs available I firmly believe the Toyota range leads, but let's be honest, the warranty offered (as standard) is way below what one expects of a leading brand. Even more so if elsewhere better warranties are available. My point being, at the end we as customers determine the end service, if we accept below standard, then below standard will be offered.

    To quote the Lexus SA website:

    Due to the level of faith we have in our craftsmanship, we offer a remarkable 7 year / 105 000 km Warranty and Maintenance Plan on all Lexus models.

    Considering the new LC is more expensive than the Lexus, one would expect premium backing by the manufacturer...

    Think the Grenadier is more on par with the 70 Series. But we are going off topic.

    I have always gave the LC +100 series a second look but being just two persons mostly ii is just too big a car for us.

    The Grenadier will be comparable with the LC70 (in size but not style) as said and the G-wagen.

    The LC +100 range is comparable with the MB GL models. Perfect as an upmarket family SUV

    Off topic here but, with a Fortuner, after a month on a lot of dusty gravel / dirt roads in Botswana I have asked my dealership to change the oil, filter & air filter even though I am 4k short of the 10 000km service interval. Amused at them trying to talk me out of it (maybe they are right?); R2,5k cost. The adviser even suggested I switch to a K&N filter to save cost. Aikona, standard Toyota and grease the seams when it comes back from a service; that is me.

    If I had dropped R1.6m odd I would definitively still do this.

    Most manufacturers put that into their owners- / service manual. The moment you tow, use in dusty or any other than normal conditions, the service intervals shorten.

    So GXR, no reverse camera but has apple car play and android auto? No air suspension, has cloth seats, rear locker and missing some safety feature. has a 30L auxillary fuel tank, 2600kg, not too shaby for the GXR at 160KG heavier, more payload and GCM than the VXL Prado at similar price. GRS is just too far a stretch for just front lockers and luxury features
