  1. Re: Ford Everest 2.2 towing a Conqueror Commander...?

    Just some feedback; I towed the penta (tare is 1280kg I think) and the 2.2 performed reasonably well. Could maintain its speed (100 - 110kmh), but went up a few steep inclines where dropping a gear...

    Re: Worth to trade in or wait a bit longer?

    I'd keep it; however if you want to use it as a family vehicle trade it in. Simply put you want your kideos to be safely strapped in a seat that was designed for that purpose.

  21. Re: New Ford Everest - Clunking while turning in low range

    That's the thing... It has never been in low range on tar. Being the only driver from new I can attest to that. Slippery hills and more recently a slippery gravel road (to test it) is pretty much it.
