  11. Re: Most "Comfortable" family road vehicle?

    I am 6'8", I have spent a 1000km in the back of a Hilux, never again. My eldest son just turned 15 and is already 1.95m tall, he is comfortable in the back of the Prado.
  12. Re: Most "Comfortable" family road vehicle?

    I dare anyone who said double cab to spend 1000km in the back seat of one! Comfort and double cab rear seats cannot go in the same sentence.

    Fords need all the help they can get to not blow their motors, you drive a Hilux, don't worry about it.
