I have no connection with this dealer . He has imported a MWB Landcruiser from Japan It has only done 88, 000 km. from new . It is fitted with a PTO winch from new . It is auto matic with turbo diesel . You would be buying an as new 4 x 4 for a cheap price . It is at Sunrise motors , Ryde , Sydney .

The wait for new cars from dealerships is crazy.
I have seen low km used 4wd selling for more $ than new. Covid tax is real.
It cant last though, the bubble has to burst eventually

Agreed i sold my 2021 duel cab 4x4 triton as i couldn't put up with being told I'm bad driver alarms and this thing never stopped beeping alarms very distracting
i got 5k more than i paid for it with 8000ks on the clock.

I ended up buying a new Mahindra single cab 2wd ute which I'm enjoying, the dealer in my town ordered 10 utes 2wd and 4 duel cab 4x4s all sold in two weeks
no trade-ins with the sales.
personally, for me, i thought long and hard about do i really need a 4x4 in fact i have taken my Mahindra on harder tracks than any of my other 4x4s and treated it badly
which i think is due to only investing half the value of my Mitsubishi and not worried if i scratch it

if you have no use or rarely use a 4x4 and re-think a better option in 2wd will save you on covid tax

everything in WA has gone up with regards to "everyone is a camper now" 4x4 camper trailers, trailers, camping stuff, to the point of now way pricers
the 2nd hand market is the same bring out ya dead old Rustie camper trailer for 6k as an example
bloody covid tax

There's a lot of toy 4wds out there now that are fuel efficient and have a lot of bells and whistles but wouldn't last 6 months on a farm or minesite! I reckon I'll keep my 1hd-fte cruiser ute till the day they lay me in the ground.....they're not cheap to fix but they don't need fixing very often!

My mate bought a Landcruiser wagon which has all the bells and whistles.
That is all he is experiencing of late, alarms and and computer errors.
Told him he should have bought a Nissan, my now old 2002 Coil Cab is still cruising without all the new beaut computer :poop:

I bought my MWB in Nov. 2006 . Done a lot of kms. but it is not the daily driver . It is on the road but resting in the garage . Not had any major problems . Engine is 4 cylinder type 3B diesel .

Most of my reasoning behind buying new was emission wanted Euro V standard due to changing emission laws over the next 5-10 years with carbon net-zero by 2050 and more worrying carbon neutral by 2030 and no doubt older diesel will have to definitely clean up their emission as sooner if labor/greens get in the up and coming elections and a push into electric cars
