    Re: VX 200 Cruisers for Sale

    Or they can just buy the overpriced ones on Autotrader. There are always around 10 300's for sale.

    I see at least one or two per day on my daily travels in Pretoria and Johannesburg.

    Re: VX 200 Cruisers for Sale

    Before the launch of the 300 I took a couple of screenshots of the ten most expensive 200s on Autotrader. Most of them are still for sale although the prices have dropped substantially.

    No problem from full lock to full lock. I went the 185 route purely for a bigger foot print.

    Re: Plat car tires

    I went to Yokohama BluEarth 185/70R14 on a Swift. Works well. The Suzuki's gearing is fairly low so the extra bit of rubber works a treat. Came in at around R3800 for 4.

    Re: Proof that the new Navara

    The new one has progressive coils now if I'm not mistaken. It would be interesting to see what the different DCs look like with a full load on the back.

    Re: Proof that the new Navara

    TIC I know, but the double cab can carry more naartjies than any other regular double cab, 1061 kg of naartjies to be precise whereas the most popular DC can only carry 855 kg of naartjies.

    Re: Question to Toyota Hilux Owners

    Partly true, yes. Single cabs can usually carry more. The Nissan Navara DC can do 1060kg, Triton DC 1050, Amarok DC 950, Ranger 950 to 1050 depending on the model and then the Hilux 855.

    Re: GD6 2.4 vs 2.8 fuel consumption.

    Is that on the trip computer or calculated? My current Toyota is fairly accurate. The previous one was out by 3 km/L so on a tank it was out by 150 km. Hectic.

    I went back to a 2016 test of a 130 kW Fortuner Auto and compared it to a Feb 2021 test of a 150 kW Fortuner Auto by CAR magazine.

    Re: GD6 2.4 vs 2.8 fuel consumption.

    You will also need to distinguish between the 130 kW and 150 kW 2.8. The 150 kW is heavier on juice by a fair amount.

    O, eks met jou. Wat ek bedoel is dat meeste van die gevalle waar daar onderstelle gebuig het, dit nie is as gevolg van swak ontwerp of airhelpers nie maar misbruik van die voertuig.

    Daar was al gebuigde Cruisers met airbags op hierdie forum. Ek reken 99.9% van die gebuigde onderstelle is eerder a.g v. oorlaai as enige iets anders.

    Re: Prado as First 4X4

    I see you mention "aftermarket performance upgrades". Dont chip the diesel accept if you like holy pistons. Not a good idea. A petrol chip is probably fine but the gains are small on a NA petrol.
