    I know it's hard to discern the engine from that photo, but do those Discos have interference engines in their line up?

    Hi all,

    Question:

    Can I run an 80L engel fridge off of a 14ah battery/inverter system and a 50W solar panel for multiple stationary days in a Campsite?

    My gut feel is no... But maybe I am...

    Re: Pik-up 4x4 DC stiff steering

    I have a Pik Up too, it's normal. You will also slightly feel it Offroad at low speeds. The steering gets heavier because there is suddenly more traction in the front. The same will apply in 4L. The...

    Suspension Re: Modifying my Rav4 Gen 1 Awd

    Looks great! Congrats on the build. Might be a stupid question, but how reliable are these RAV4s? Do they use the same 2.0L that went into the Corollas and Carinas of the time?

    It's worrying that the "thing" was in such condition, especially because they are blady expensive to replace.

    If I'm not mistaken the XUV500 was still offered in AWD in some variants, up to 2018. I don't know if the option was available on the W6. The new ones are all FWD.

    Hi there

    I own a 2018 Scorpio Pik Up. Has the same engine as the XUV500. I have also driven the XUV500 for a couple of days, and I enjoyed it. It's very spacious and the engine is the real star.
