Ok, my brother in law in shopping for a new suv and has pretty much decided on a Toyota Prado (new). I have looked at them with him and they look like a great vehicle. However, his best friend is very vocally opposed to the Prado as he says that it is a very dangerous vehicle as they are a target for thieves and other bad guys. He says that it is the most stolen vehicle in the DR and that it is highly dangerous to drive one! Normally I would not pay much attention to this but he is normally a fairly intelligent person and quite reasonable so this seems out of character for him. He is also wealthy so it is not a jealousy thing. Anyway, he is so emphatic about this that my brother in law is now having doubts in case this has some thread of truth to it. To me it seems equal to other suv's. Does anyone have any knowledge about this suv that we don't know?
