  1. Ford & Mazda Re: Mazda CX-5: Rooiman se Rooiwa (Vroulief se wa om korrek te wees)

    Really do like the CX5, and that red is just stunning.

    Paid R2300 for 18" Yoko Geolandars on the Volvo. So still in the ballpark.

    Ford & Mazda Re: Which small car?

    VW Up.

    if not that

    Honda Jazz.

    I currently own an Up and I have owned 3 Jazz's.

    The rest is just not great at anything.

    Re: restricted performance

    My dad's Freelander 2 TD4 had similar issues. After mucking about quite a lot, it turned out to be a clogged air filter. New filter, car pulled like a train again.

    Re: Any deals to be had on VW UP!

    Bought a NP200 and an UP in the same week last year.

    For daily commuting, a Freelander is one of the nicer places to be.

    Better than the "big" Pajero, I'd hazard.

    Koleos was sold to my BIL end Nov 2018. Still going strong and he does some mega mileages.

    Engine is OK.

    The Auto box is Merc's version of a CVT.

    Apparently the control unit is inside the box in the oil. They tend to go bad. Google it. How expensive it is to repair, I don't know.

    My dad owns a 2007 FL2 TD4 Auto.

    He bought it a bunch of years ago at 120k km. It had a whiny rear diff then. It's now on 200k km and it is still whiny. It hasn't gotten any worse or better.

    I guess only having ESP and no TC makes some sense. I mean in how much trouble can you get into with 55kW of unrestrained wheelspin? ;D

    At this mileage you need to start listening for the rattling noise at start up which is the timing chain doing the "death slap".
