This is the best advice . Why not just buy the newest and nicest spec landcrusier you can find in your budget ?

A 2013 / 14 top of the range landcruiser will be a far better motor than either of the two mentioned .If you could find / stretch to an amazon you would have the best 4x4 on the road

Hardly any amazon's were sold and 40 k would not even get you a 2011 one, besides they are too big

I'm looking for a change, landcruiser are bulletproof but very bland themselves

There are a handful of 2015 landcruisers on Carzone atm with 50-80k kms on them. All between €39 and €45k

If you go through the UK I'm sure you could do better the that on that price and get a higher spec one.

I love the Jeep and the Skoda is a big meh to me. No comparison but something would put me off a Jeep if I was planning on keeping it for that long.

If you're planning on buying something to keep for 10 years, I'd stick with what I know and buy another landcruiser.

Just my 2c

Best of luck with whatever you choose.

Jeep are not terrible. Just traded mine in after 3 years of no issues at all (well apart from hitting a deer).

I know I only paid $39K for it, but in Ireland they are looking at some ridiculous amount close to 100K euro.... makes you wonder what the mark up/VRT/vat and import duties are for a pretty basic car here in the states.

Cars are dirt cheap in the states compared to most of Europe, let alone Ireland

Warranted or not there is literally no market in Ireland for Jeeps. Your car is only worth what you can sell it for..

But not everything has to be exercise in accounting. If it's something you want then it might be worth it to yourself.

Landcruiser are no cheaper in the UK and those you refer to between 39 and 45k are business class, those were never sold in the UK as there was no need, our vrt system demanded a third option between straight commercial and the full on passenger landcruiser, you can still carry passengers in the business class but one less row of seats

Until last summer, business class was 60 k new where as the passenger was 90 k

Business class no longer available new in Ireland and the cheap road tax also gone

That's why I have to go to Northern Ireland for one, there are a few for sale down here thee odd time, they are cheaper than the landcruiser for sure but more expensive than the likes of the mitsubishi pajero..

There are no dirt cheap post 2011 grand cherokee no matter how little demand you perceive there to be

Just on the kodiaq, was talking to a guy in the trade earlier today who it has to be said was offering a very attractive deal on a two year old kodiaq, same guy claimed that hardly anyone bought the five seater kodiaq and that say a 2017 seven seater 2litre diesel kodiaq would hope to sell for 30k plus, the otherwise same five seater would not even be worth 20 k, I found this extraordinarily hard to believe, in fact had he said 25k, I'd have viewed it as a hefty price differential as surely plenty of people don't need huge space?

Might be BS

Talking to my colleague in Spain, he drives a VW passat (about 10 years old in fairness)
Insurance is E400 a year, and road tax is E190 ....

wtf is it with Ireland ?

5 Seat would be very hard to sell alright. Same thing happened Santa Fe’s around 2007 or 2008 when they introduced a 5 seat version. Couldn’t raffle them second hand. I think your man is a bit wild with the €20k figure though. Ask him to get you one!
