    Re: Saving the crank battery

    A quick internet search suggests an outlay of about R1,000.

    Re: Cheers Trailblazer, Hello MUX

    My coolant temp readout absolutely mimics the gauge. Normal 3/8 is 80C, halfway is 90C and 5/8 is 100C. The temp needle doesn't remain dead on "normal" like my previous cars (excluding my student...

    Re: Back to where i started with 4x4's.

    I never "modded" any of my 4x4s. Roofrack and towbar and that was it.
    Memories, now that was made in abundance.

    Is there a "4x4" or "4wd" sticker anywhere on your MUX? I don't see one on your pics. The one I drove had a 4wd sticker, and I really would like one for my Chevy as well.

    Serious question please, even the sales manager couldn't answer it for me:
    Is your MUX Android Auto compatible?
    Or does it only support Apple CarPlay, which I know it does.
