2000 Toyota Caldina GT-T

I just wanted to let you know I collected my Caldina GT-T on the weekend, and it is absolutely fantastic.

It came in virtually right on budget, which left me a few dollars to do a few nice things to it, such as the plates and a new set of wheels.

Thanks A LOT for always happily answering my pestering questions, and keeping me well and truly informed the whole way through the process. Having never imported a car before it was very reassuring to have someone keep me up to speed with everything. I'll be more than happy to refer any of my friends to you, as you know i've already pointed a friend in your direction, and after having shown the Caldina off to my family and friends over the weekend, don't be surprised if you have a few more customers shortly.

Toyota Estima (CR30 / CR40 Series)

The Estima (known locally in Australia as a Tarago) was an incredibly popular vehicle for Toyota, and with good reason given their excellent features and value for money. Toyota's flagship people mover came with 7 or 8 seat layout, and a 2.4L 4 cylinder or 3.0L V6 engine choice, plus 2WD or 4WD available with both engines. A petrol/electric Hybrid version is also available with the 2.4L variant.

The 2.4L 2WD set up is the same as locally available Taragos for those who want easy parts availability, however Estimas come with more luxury options and have usually done significantly lower mileage.

Available features can include:

Climate control Power sliding doors
Up to 3 parking cameras ABS brakes
Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) Steering wheel shift buttons
Stability control Cruise control
Xenon headlights Parking sensors
Power driver's seat Dual airbags
Dual sunroofs Keyless entry

2000 - 2005 models are eligible for import in 2.4L and 3.0L engines, and 2WD or 4WD layout.
