    Re: GD6 2.4 vs 2.8 fuel consumption.

    I went back to a 2016 test of a 130 kW Fortuner Auto and compared it to a Feb 2021 test of a 150 kW Fortuner Auto by CAR magazine.

    Toyota claimed figure 2016: 7.6 L/100km

    Re: GD6 2.4 vs 2.8 fuel consumption.

    You will also need to distinguish between the 130 kW and 150 kW 2.8. The 150 kW is heavier on juice by a fair amount.

    If the speed is low enough and the occupants are wearing their safety belts the air bags won't deploy.

    10 L/100km is actually the norm for that size of vehicle and tech. Prado's and the like will not do better and in most cases slightly worse.

  9. Re: Considering pulling the trigger on 2016 Pajero 3.2 LWB GLS

    I get around 8 km/L for city driving and 10 to 11 on the open road with a pre 2010 3.2 LWB. The 140 kW Pajero's are at least 1to 2 km/L lighter on fuel.

    O, eks met jou. Wat ek bedoel is dat meeste van die gevalle waar daar onderstelle gebuig het, dit nie is as gevolg van swak ontwerp of airhelpers nie maar misbruik van die voertuig.

    Re: Prado as First 4X4

    I see you mention "aftermarket performance upgrades". Dont chip the diesel accept if you like holy pistons. Not a good idea. A petrol chip is probably fine but the gains are small on a NA petrol.

    Although you say it's not the battery maybe it is. It will be strange if it drives there and then just die without any warning.

    Agree, I always say the only Toyota that's a bargain is a brand new one. Second hand you pay way too much for it.

    And I drive one myself.

    Re: First 4x4

    Newer than 2016 good options are NP300 2.5 4x4 or Ranger 2.2. I see that you list a Ranger as a vehicle and on a trade another Ford is a good option.

    I reckon the sweet spot for that kind of money is the 2014 to 2016 model years.
