Thanks - that's what I had assumed, but I am still surprised to see many of them. I wonder if the V8TD sold here is different than the one sold in Australia.
In any case if I were to buy a new Land Cruiser here, I would go with the 1HZ.
Quick question for you - sorry a bit off topic - it looks like (in Botswana at least) you can have a choice of the 4.2 1HZ engine and the newer diesel V8 turbo. We are the Toyota dealership and I was looking at their new models...
Do you know if the V8 work well with the lower grade diesel?
Sorry to hear about this trouble. I know this is not going to help you but perhaps it may help someone else.
Your story is one of the reasons why we bought a Transit AWD with factory windows.
We can sleep sideways without installing Flarespace, saving a lot of trouble and money. And we got one...
