my brother went to view this landcruiser 80.. wasted his time going plus took time off work as well

http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201040369800563/sort/priceasc/usedcars/transmission/manual/engine-size-cars/4l_to_4-9l/model/landcruiser/make/toyota/postcode/m337fw/radius/1501/page/1?logcode=p


"134,000 miles, THIS CAR IS FROM 1996 NOT 1992 SORRY WRONG TITLE, TOYOTA LANDCRUISER 4.2 GS Manual 24 valve Turbo Diesel Station Wagon Genuine uk car. 3 months mot and no tax 134000 miles with full Toyota service history . 2 new battery, new exhaust.2 new tyres, Manual gearbox with hi/low and 3X diff locks, 7seater, Folding rear seats, Electric sunroof, Electric windows.Electric mirrors, very reliable car and powerful. everything works perfect, Find my location LONDON. 4,800."

all windows not working and lights dont work properly, otherwise vehicle was good..could be sorted

ad obviously wrong ( hate when that happens)

chap didnt have the v5 on his name, apparently had to vehicle cos someone owed him money and gave it to him

I told my brother to just walk away,, not worth paying a penny for it

this is the second time i heard a story like this, i phoned a chap last month who advertised one on e bay and autotrader and he gave me the same story ie. someone owed him money and he got the vehicle, but that vehicle on a text check was recorded stolen in 1998.. didnt bother therafter


are there any cons going around with this type of vehicle or has anyone had a similar experience ?

yep.. GS not seven seater... but im sure 3rd row can be fitted  ( planning to do that to mine at some point)

this vehicle didnt have the 3rd row of seats

looks like ad been copied and pasted from somewhere... seems even more suspect

seems like the GS not in autotrader anymore,, just checked the number we used to call him and its the same as  chap who has a 1992 vx auto for sale now or is it 1993.. dont think he knows ( both years in the same ad)

anyone going to look at it,, check the paperwork carefully
