    Re: Ford Everest 2nd Hand ?

    Friends have the Mazda BT50 D/C with that engine and the auto transmission.

    Apparently there is something on the auto transmission that goes wrong and they forked out R60k to get it sorted.

    Re: Nissan Qashqai surprise

    I briefly owned a first gen 2008 2.0 n/a Petrol Qashqai.

    I was really really impressed with the vehicle, the seats were amazing and it was at it's happiest cruising well above the speed limit.

    Freelander without a doubt.

    As stated the CRV is fine, but more car like.

    If you don't need the extra space of the Pajero, no brainer on the Freelander.

    Indeed. My 350SE had the 3 speed. It worked surprisingly well, though it sometimes needed some encouragement as the vacuum supply was dodgy. Regularly saw 160km/h+ on the highway.

  22. Re: Used Volvo XC60 or XC90 for soft roading and daily drive?

    Powershift is Ford's attempt at a dual clutch (DSG) box. Not a very successful one. Especially the earlier ones which you will probably be looking at.

    Get a D3 or D5 in either 60 or 90 and you will be smiling.

    My dad's 2007 TD4 sometimes went into limp mode, especially when you needed some power, i.e overtaking, accelerating hard, etc.

    My dad bought his 2007 FL2 in 2012 at around 120k km with the rear diff whine.

    8 years later and now on 200k km, it's still whining. Hasn't got better or worse.

    He just drives it.

    Re: Tyre age vs condition

    If you have a blow out and an accident / skid on a wet road and your insurance company is clever enough to see you are using a 17 year old tyre, you won't have a claim. I've seen it happen.
