    We were there on Friday 4 September 2020, coming from the Clanwilliam side. We had to turn around at the Doring river. Even so, it was a beautiful drive.

    Re: Where to servive

    Standard service. Sometimes people have less than "good" service (or should I rather say, experience) at a particular dealer, for whatever reason.

    It handles it very good. An extra few mm of ground clearance would have been great, but for most of what we have done it was perfect.....especially at around 18km/l.

    If you compare the size of the towbar to what is used elsewhere and also look at hiw it is mounted, my bet is that it is pretty solid. I never used it for snatch recoveries though.

    I think on the pre-facelift models (2016) they stayed on permanently. With the facelift models, they will stay on until a door is opened.
