    7 seater SUV Diesel

    Howdy fellas,

    Anyone looking to upgrade there SUV? kids flown the coop?

    Number of options out there. I'm not set on make, but am after a few key features..

    Mainly looking at Land Cruiser Prados or Ford Territory Titaniums.
    Other options if priced right would be Hyundai Sante Fe or Nissan Pathfinder or Mitsi Pajero,

    Looking at 2008 vehicles onwards, Automatic, diesel, 7 seats +, less then 200,00kms on the clock ideally closer to a 100 if not a Prado.

    Budget upto 25k

    Get at me if you know of anything that fit the bill

    Cheers
    Tim

    Kia Sorento are good. They are Hyundai under the skin (same company). The Hyundai 2.2 diesel engine in them is awesome and they seem to be a bit cheaper than the equivalent year Sante Fe.

    My brother in laws Super charger 4.2 V8 Range Rover returns 14L/100km on his daily commute to work.

    I think it's worth while going for a diesel in a SUV especially one that's going to be doing towing.
    Paying for RUCs is annoying, but the diesels are usually more economic so make up for any extra cost.

    Not sure on the reliability front, but you will probably find they're not as bad as you'd think, NZ mechanics will still charge over the top for repairs though as it's a scary european car.
    They are generally well regarded in terms of comfort and features. I think the XC90 is a 7 seater if that's important to you.

    Unless you are really handy with repairs I'd go for Toyota or Hyundai; they have a proven track record, easy to find a mechanic who will fix them and be able to get parts and most importantly they are common so most mechanics will have seen any issues you've had before. The Santa Fe has proven it self to be a very popular and reliable vehicle.

    Personally I'd buy a Land Rover Discovery 3, but I'm a Land Rover nut and do all my repairs myself.
