    Default New (to me) Landcruiser 200 advice

    Hi Guys,

    Need some help. Can get a 2014 Landcruiser 200 diesel 167km. One owner, car looks very clean. Serviced every 10000km at Toyota. Can get it for R760k all in, delivery from Cape Town and on road costs etc. Brand new tyres.

    Have been looking for awhile. Just worried itís overpriced although I see this is across the board. It was not long ago that I thought 167km is crazy for a 2nd hand car, but the cruiser bug has bitten.

    Do I wait some more? Do you think prices will get better once the 300 is out?

    And then, potential issues to look out for?

    Thanks in advance and looking forward to your advise.

    Most people will tell you 167k on a toyota is barely high mileage - my hilux is on 230k and have needed barely anything besides the usually service. R760k for a 6 year old car i think is quite steep though - prices are likely to come down towards year end, shortage of supply at the moment.

    That said the cruisers do hold their value but i suspect with the 300 coming, you are likely to see some drop in value.

    If you go back and look at the trend then 2nd hand cruisers prices do not follow the norm. When the 100 came out the 80 series's prices went up because of the move to ifs. When the 105 came out the 100 went down but the 80 stayed the same.

    When the 200 came out the 105 and 80 also went up and even now with the 200 4.5 d4d being discontinued their prices are going up and I'll bet you my paycheck they will still remain at a premium for the foreseeable future.

    I agree, these cars just do not conform to the normal depreciation trends we see in other vehicles.

    Very interesting trends.
    In May/June 2017 when I was hunting for a VX 200, the 2014 models were selling for R750-R790k, the 2015’s selling at about R850k.
    Here we are 4 years later and the advertised price appears to be very similar to back then.
    Personally, I think that you could do a bit better than 167 000km, especially at that price.

    For R50k more you can get this vehicle with 60k less km, https://www.autotrader.co.za/car-for...00/vx/25997292

    or this one but modified, https://www.autotrader.co.za/car-for...00/vx/25875648

    The facelift was in 2016 therefore the hefty jump in prices

    Correct.

    Much value as they may hold, when the 300 does go on sale, there will be a huge drop in used prices of the 200. I would wait a bit if I were you, because definitely the 300 will be better.

    Yes yes mourning for the V8 and all.. but who cares when the v6 outdoes the V8 in all aspects?

    Thanks everybody for the comments so far. I have been searching for a couple of months and 4 months back I would not have considered this due to the higher mileage.

    The mileage does bug me and I would rather pay abit more (not much) if I can get a low mileage car. I can also afford to be patient and wait till the 300 comes out and see what that does to the price.

    I guess I just didnít want to miss out on the deal if it was indeed a good one.

    I do know the dealer paid 700k for the car and then have put on new tyres, so maybe this will be the new normal.

    Thanks. And although it probably is the wiser choice, I will forever have that itch for the 200.

    I think bite the bullet and buy it. My son in law was also looking everytime he saw anything the price was more over retail as before. At the end he bought one with 200 000 on the clock and it is running without problems for a year now and just back from the Khalagadi. See if you can find one anywhere currently less than R 100 000 above retail. That is the norm nowa days.

    I have a mate who is selling a spotless 2015 with 90k on the clock but he needs R905k for it. Crazy part is I think he will get his price

    Sadly I would only look at pushing the budget to 850 so itís not for me unfortunately.

    Like bitcoin the prices have to tumble at some point.

    Not only can i not afford the above mentioned vehicle, but it is a crazy amount of money to pay for a 6 year old vehicle. low mileage or not.

    We can only connect the dots backwards - it is all about your conviction. either way you will have to live with the decision. I have been on a market for a V8 Touareg for over a year now. I have budget in mind and will only breach it by a tiny amount (max 30k). I missed out on one that was within range earlier in the year because dealer marked it up by 120k (I knew what they paid for it). The prices have gone crazy but I still won't breach my budget. Obviously helps that I want and do not need the car, hence can afford to wait/miss out - your situation might be different.

    Good luck!

    This is the reason I didn't buy a Landcruiser or Hilux the prices are just too unstable.

    2020 Hilux retail is +-R700k yet they sell for R800 - R900 000

    What is going to happen to the Hilux in 1 or 2 years time when everything is back to normal, secondhand market gets floaded with Legends and RS because the "New Hilux GR" is out?

    Or is the Hilux GR V6 going to cost R1. 5 million?

    Not to mention how the 200 V8 Cruiser wil drop once everyone accepts the 300 V6 Cruiser and want that instead

    How do guys buy 200 Cruisers at +- R1.8 million?

    If the new 300 V6 Cruiser is going to cost more than R2. million then I'd understand buying an 200 at R1. 8 million
