  1. Re: From a Toyota Rav 2.2 d4d awd to a Isuzu Mux 4x4?

    Most likely 7.1 L/100km which is really good.

    Re: GD6 Service schedule

    Agreed, my discs warped at around 38k km and Toyota wouldn't touch it. Said it is wear and tear and for my account.

    Fortuner Re: My 2016 Fortuner GD-6 is RUSTING - Is yours?

    Not all of them. If the water level did not reach the lower sill they were deemed sellable. That was according to a newspaper article a while back.

    Re: My new MU-X

    Totally possible to beat the claimed figure. My platkar Toyota's claimed figure is 6,3 L/100k and my average is 5,6 combined over the past 50k km. Close to 10% better than the claimed figure. If you...

  9. Re: Buddy ordered Fortuner 2.8 VX 4x2 - was it the right choice?

    Nothing wrong with the 2WD Fortuner if he can get it immediately. If he needs to wait 6 months for the 4WD I would think twice. The new Fortuner is supposed to be launched next year sometime...

    Re: Why not a Patrol?

    This I agree with. So if you buy new, buy the Cruiser, if you buy second-hand buy the Patrol.

    With the one you will save money later and the other you save money on purchase.
  13. Re: All new Kia Carnival - any feedback or opinions?

    My only gripe with the Carnival is that it is fairly low, 180mm ground clearance. If you are looking at the SX or SXL spec Carnival, I reckon the 8 seater Pallisade for more or less the same money,...

    I think your private amount is spot on. I see they still sell for between R220k and R240k for the year model and mileage. Not bad!

    Re: New Isuzu 1.9

    110kW and 350NM, it's more or less what Toyota did with the 2.4 GD6. For a 2.4 it is underwhelming, 110kW and 400NM, but it's the entry level engine so no need for more power. If you want more power...

    Re: Strong opinions needed

    Can't think why it would be better. My Toyota is also "Made in Japan" and the paintwork does not impress me at all. The paintwork on my "Made in RSA" one was definitely better.

    In fact none of the midsized SUVs or bakkies will be able to tow it legally. To tow it legally you will have to look at Cruiser 100 or similar, Patrol SW, Ford F250 etc.
