    Re: 2020 Ford XLT or New 250 Isuzu X Rider

    Based on your statement that you want something for a long time, I'd choose the Isuzu; its a tractor compared to the Ranger but their long term reliability and longevity is proven.

    Re: Lemon Amarok - Need Advice Please

    Thanks Marius,

    If I'm not mistaken, the manual says 1l/2000km is within spec.

    Even so, based on how many other Rok owners I've spoken to, oil usage is very uncommon.
