    Re: Ford Figo Service

    According to my software, a 180k km service at my shop would cost around R1963.

    Includes air filter and cabin filter.

    My BIL bought my Koleos with the Nissan Xtronic CVT gearbox (as is in the Murano). At 180k km the gearbox ate it's insides.

    I'm quite sure you can disengage the handbrake some other way.

    I do know my Autel Diagnostic tool has a whole EPB section, however I haven't had to use it yet.

    Freelander without a doubt.

    As stated the CRV is fine, but more car like.

    Indeed. My 350SE had the 3 speed. It worked surprisingly well, though it sometimes needed some encouragement as the vacuum supply was dodgy. Regularly saw 160km/h+ on the highway.

    Powershift is Ford's attempt at a dual clutch (DSG) box. Not a very successful one. Especially the earlier ones which you will probably be looking at.

    Get a D3 or D5 in either 60 or 90 and you will be smiling.

    Re: Tyre age vs condition

    If you have a blow out and an accident / skid on a wet road and your insurance company is clever enough to see you are using a 17 year old tyre, you won't have a claim. I've seen it happen.
