    Fortuner Re: New Shape Fortuner

    Power button on the manual is just a pedal booster that causes unnecessary stress and wear on the drive train. It makes it harsh, not more powerful.

    Cant comment on the auto though.
  19. Re: Long Term Impressions etc etc : New Hilux 2,8 Raider 4x4 DC Manual

    How much of a knock do you take every time you trade in if I may ask?

    I do similar mileage every year and wondering.

    Also, did you loose more per year when you traded at 78000 or at 48500 ?

    They replace the aircon filter at 20 000km (at least they did on mine). Think itís every 20000km along with the diesel filter.
