Default Prado 120 issues

Hi Forumites,

I recently bought a 2008 Prado 4.0 V6 Auto. I was initially interested in buying a Discovery 3, but then a family member offered me his low mileage Prado for around the same price as a 2009 Disco 3 HSE.

I noticed that there is not really many threads relating to problems with 120 Prados. Please post yours so we can share info and help each other.

The Prado's history is as follows. Wife drove it since bought new in 2008. Never towed (doesn't even have a towbar). Has not had any body repair work done. Excellent condition inside and outside. Mileage is currently at just over 100 000km. Never used off road - was used for transporting kids etc. Sometimes used on highways for vacations etc. Full service history.

The vehicle has had small maintenance/wear and tear items repaired over the years the previous owner had it.

Since I bought it I've had some problems with it:

1. Gearbox got stuck - gearbox was opened and some bearings needed to be replaced
2. Starter motor packed up
3. Rear door lock wouldn't unlock -replace locking mechanism
4. Noise when travelling sounded similar to bearings, turned out to be something on the diff

I will add on as the problems arise.

Please post any problems you might have experienced to date on your Prado's as well.

I didn't know that they also had Prado's in the UK.
