Not buying a Toyota Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle?  Here is what to look out for in a Used Toyota Landcruiser Prado

In the market for a Pre-Owned Toyota Prado? Buying the best with your budget means searching for the best possible condition by making the following safety and model-specific checks before you get that "oh what a feeling" and drive away with your purchase.  

Non-Genuine Toyota Parts, repairs, and accessories

Avoid a void on the warranty of your used vehicle. The Toyota Prado, being a seven-seater, is a popular model to have accessories added that increase storage, such as roof racks and pods. Check to ensure they are Toyota Genuine Parts installed correctly by professionals. Any damage caused by non-genuine, or aftermarket parts is not covered by the warranty and may even void the warranty on other parts damaged due to the use or installation of non-genuine parts.  

Check that any repairs and all services have been conducted by authorised technicians and all replaced parts are genuine Toyota parts, in line with the high quality and perfect fit expected to keep your Toyota running smoothly.   

Buy a newer model if possible

Ensuring that the service has been meticulously adhered to and investing in a model that is still new enough for the warranty advantage, it is worth considering buying a newer model with the further two years on top. With a service cap of $260 per visit, at six-month intervals or 10,000kms, taking the time to find a newer model will reward you with a top-class model with the latest in safety and technology developed in all Toyota Prado’s as standard.   

Run your hands and eyes over the body to check for poor repairs or obvious damage

The Toyota Prado is well known for its seamless ability to switch from the school run to an off-road adventure without skipping a beat. However, off-roading can cause damage that might not be seen at a quick glance. With suburban roads getting busier and life faster, even the city mover can sustain damage from accidents.  

Since the Prado had the prestigious award of a five-star ANCAP rating in 2011, many more safety improvements have been added, such as AEB braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, reverse camera, rear parking sensors and adaptive cruise control. But accidents can still happen, as can neglect.  

Check for ripples in the metal, poorly matched paint and creases in the bodywork, which can indicate accidents with poor and inferior repairs.  

Service and report history

Known for its excellent resale value, a Toyota Prado with current and integral history of service and repairs makes your investment a sound and reliable option to discuss with Ken Mills Toyota. Choosing the option of a Certified Toyota Pre-Owned Prado means that all the necessary checks are completed, as well as the high standard checks conducted by Ken Mills Toyota that far surpass those required for just a roadworthy check. For a reliable background check, all services, ownership (not stolen), accident, recall and integrity of all parts is conducted by Ken Mills Toyota to ensure you drive away with a Prado that is high-value and has the potential to last you a lifetime.
