Potential buyer


Recommended Posts

Hi ,I am very likely to be purchasing an alphard camper this year 

I have a couple of questions I am sure you have been asked before .

What engine should I be looking for?

Is the v6 too thirsty? The diesel underpowered? If so would a remap help?

Can it be used as a daily driver without issues?

Any dangers I should look out for ?

Many thanks in advance 

Paul

Hi Paul,

 

Welcome to the Alphard Club Forum.

 

Alphards are not fitted with diesel engines, Both the larger and smaller engines in each Generation are petrol.

Fuel economy is a matter of choice and depends greatly on the type of motoring you do; especially if commuting.

But that applies to any vehicle.

 

Many owners use them as daily drivers.

 

The only thing to watch out for is that many Toyota Dealers will not work on Imports; so having a local garage that will if quite important.

 

I would suggest an AA or RAC survey, to be sure.

I had one that cost £300. It was very reassuring.

Also make sure you get a copy of the auction sheet as they can be very informative.

 

Good Luck with your search. Take your time and you won't be disappointed with your new limousine.
