Lubo,
Sorry to rub salt into the wounds but I am the fourth owner of my 80,
purchsed with approx 100, 000 km on the clock. In just over 3 and half
years and approx 60,000 km I have had no major problems and merely had
to replace consumable items.
I think the moral of the tale is always buy the best you can afford as
running repairs are time consuming and always more expensive than you
first think. It is seldom cost effective to buy a vehicle that requires
work doing to it for these reasons.

Hi Gareth,
That's not always the case, when I bought my current LC I realised straight
away there was a problem with the auto box, but as the seller was asking
much below the market value at the time I figured I could at the worst have
to buy a new gearbox and still get value for money. In the end all it took,
by trial and error at my local auto centre, was the replacement of four
sensors at a total cost of ?540. I ended up with an LC for ?8000 that
should have cost about ?11500, maybe I was just lucky!

HI Gareth
agree with you 110%
the worst of all is that I was aware of that all but I call it 'blind
sunday' -that what happened to me- I bought the car with my heart not
with my head.
to much trust in Toyota and the people in general ( though I
should've never trust the Afghan seller who sold it to me ......
next time will be OK!!!!!!!!!! exactly now there is no forward or
backward way out...
cheers
