Toyota Land Cruiser LJ78 Turbo Diesel VIN ; LJ780003021 Showing 113,300 Km's (69,236 Miles)
The Prado is a lighter, narrower and more fuel efficient version of the venerable Land Cruiser.
Recently imported from Japan - Right Hand Drive
Impeccably maintained, fantastically clean top and bottom. They don't use rock salt in Japan and you can tell. Carpets and upholstery are super-clean. Even has the full set of factory Land Cruiser Floormats in excellent condition.
I just did a full oil service with Rotella T5 10w30 Synthetic and a Factory Toyota filter.
If you're familiar with Japanese vehicles, most are serviced far more frequently than Americans are used to.
On this Vehicle there are Factory Toyota Dealership Stickers for the transmission service and timing belt service. These were all done at around 104,000 Kms (6000 miles ago). That means you've got 60,000 worry free miles in front of you.
Only 69,000 actual miles with the full timing belt service done at 63,000 miles.
This is an overland adventure rated vehicle, it can go anywhere. Full locking 4wd differential. These are favorites of the Military and Law Enforcement all over the world. A true blend of off-road capability with every day comfort and conveniences.
Push button 4wd with electronic diff lock and transfer case.These units can be set up with a factory PTO winch there's a fantastic tutorial on ih8mud.com if you want to really go out in the woods with it.
ECT Electronically Controlled Transmission gives you the choice of shifting in Power or Economy Modes.
Electronically Controlled Suspension lets you choose between Sport and Comfort modes.
The running boards are SOLID, like mounted to the frame in 4 places SOLID : I'm pretty sure they cold hold 4 people each. There isn't a hint of flex or groan even when you jump on them.
4 very new looking Goodyears mounted with the factory Dunlop spare outside on the spare carrier in excellent shape with a factory keyed lug-nut lock installed.
It gets over 30mpg - Goes down the freeway at 80mph no problem.
Interior is super-clean / mature woman previous owner (there were white lace curtains hanging in the windows)
The Glass is tinted dark in the rear and is in excellent shape, it's obvious this vehicle was lightly used and cared for regularly.
Comes with JDM remote control Sony NV-XYZ77 GPS system (Good luck downloading USA maps) with built in back up camera and MP3 player loaded with 50 hours of American Jazz, this unit was $2300 when new. There's very little it can't do, but you'll need to have a japanese translator to get through the menus. I've been using the Google Translate App, and it works pretty well for the basics. But some of it is kinda technical. I found a 215 page PDF Owners manual for this system online for free, it's in Japanese. I figured out how to get it to play mp3's and use the back up camera. If you can figure out how to download the US map files, you'll be in business.
Goes down the road perfectly, no shakes, shimmy's, wobbles or vibration, suspension feels as tight as a brand new SUV.
Do your research on these. These Land Cruisers can go ANYWHERE. This one has had the head/coolant mod to protect it from head cracking during extreme duty, and the coolant in the radiator and overflow both look and smell great.
The Good Stuff:
Power locksPower WindowsRear wiper / washerHeadlight washersHeat that will run you outA/C needs a charge, blows moderately chillyElectric Lumbar support seats3 Row seating easily holds 73rd Row seats fold into the sidewalls and 2nd Row seats slide and fold forward for maximum space in the back. I'm 6'1" and I've slept back there.
The bad stuff:
The clearcoat is coming off the front right fender a lot and not so much in a few other places. My local body shop wants to charge me $250 to make it look new again.
The decals on the sides are sun-kissed and coming off.
The Drivers Sun Visor is wrinkled, and a bit wobbly, it gets the job done, but nobody would describe it as "tight".
There is either a cigarette burn or some other type of small hole in the passenger front seat. The Cruiser doesn't smell smoked in, and the ash trays were all clean, but there's a flaw there none the less. It's 1/4" and you may be able to patch it by harvesting a little material from under the seat and super-glue'ing it in place, but that's up to you.
