Default Prado Vs Patrol

Here is a question for all you petrol heads out there.....

Which would you recommed, second hand at about 4 to 5 years old should i go for a Prado or a Patrol ?

Perhaps i should add that i will be taking it off road as well as driving it up and down the SZR

Either really, both do pretty much the same job. At 4 or 5 years old I'd mainly be buying on condition as it is likely the vehicle in question will have been off road at some point. If you find a good one at a sensible price buy it whatever the badge says.

Based on the fact that the number of offroad Patrol drivers far exceeds the number of offroad Prado owners, I'd be looking at Prado...

Less chance of having been raxed, mate..........

Whatevr you do, go for a Prado...The men in white have forever tarnished the image of Patrols and Land Cruisers...I hate it when a clown in one of the former cars sticks himself to my rear bumper...
