Holy shit. Might be worth the ask. Despite the mileage because of how pristine it was kept.

I love the way these look. But that 18 month maintenance isn’t an anomaly in these. They will rape your wallet.

Yeah, it's a really nice example. The amount of pics in that ad is amazing, it has been well cared for its entire life.

165k on the chassis and trans. Better budget for a trans replacement.
217 HP V8 :lolol:
0-60 10 seconds if working correctly
12 MPG city, 16 highway

$13k is a bit much for this. It should be around $7k. But it does have some nice modifications, seems to have been kept decently well, engine rebuild is a good thing, etc. Gotta remember this was a $39k SUV in 2003, about equal to a $55k SUV now. So it'll have $55k SUV upkeep costs, RR tax, etc.

Would be interesting to check out. This would be a great overlanding vehicle if you lived somewhere you could do that sort of thing.

But since asking price is rather equal, the 4Runner you posted earlier is the FAR better pick as it's about 500x less likely to strand you on a mountain pass.

I would 4Runner 5 out of 7 times over that LR, especially that 4Runner. Hell, I have thoughts about how to pick up that 4Runner now... :plac: :lol:

The ONLY hold back on that 4R... no mention of any trans or diff fluid changes. First owner drove it with an intermittent CEL and sticking caliper, bad wheel bearing, etc. So first owner was a :derp: to cars but kept it clean and no rust because Florida.

Second owner here goes full :troywax: on repairs and after spending a shitload gives up after 4 months and gets a newer 5th gen. :butwhy: Just flipping it? Or sick of chasing shit? His wife get annoyed and think it's unreliable? Or is there more stuff wrong like trans slipping/lurching or a diff whining?

It would need a good test drive and inspection for sure. I don't want to be chasing gremlins all the time.

Honestly, the 200H was a great driving car. If they threw a 2.0T and :manuel: in it, it would have been a proper hot hatch. Shame.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

The gray one looks like a pretty good buy. Sport Chrono package is good for throttle response.

Always thought these were good looking and deserved a better engine. But alas it’s a more normal looking Prius with a normal interior and normal gauges. Really the best way to get a Prius if that’s what you want. Would probably be great for the city.
