    Love my bakkie.
    Die deure klink "hol" en ek moet hulle harder as die DC sin toeslaan - BTW, hulle is 200mm langer as die DC sin.

    Ek het Saterdag 7.3l/100km gebruik Heilbron toe en terug. Tank2tank, en dit het ooreengestem met die meter. Ek het so 120 - 140 km/h gedoen.

    Same reason you have an insurance policy, plus at the cost, it is really a no-brainer...
    Uys, I assume you also took the 8 year unlimited km option?

    Again, these Hiluxes impressed me over the weekend.

    We were towing with my partner's. 2.4, 4x2 XC.

    So we loaded 3 cattle on the trailer but the ladies was difficult and stopped in the middle, so we couldn't close the center gate to keep them in the front of the trailer. In a moment of weakness we decided to leave it as is and proceeded to load 4 calves as well - trailer was pretty full at this stage. Halfway between Heilbron and Sasolburg the cows started circling and ended up right at the back of the trailer with the calves following them. The first 1m of the trailer was essentially empty - I don't need to explain the consequences of this to you.

    So we ended up with a swaying trailer pulling the Hilux more than a meter from side to side at about 80km/h. This developed so rapidly, we couldn't believe it, because as it swings obviously the cattle "fall" over and makes it worse.

    Just as I went into the fetus position in the foot-well to prepare for the pending earth-sky, earth-sky, earth-sky view the Hilux made it's voice thick and announced: "Not on my watch", through the abundant use of gut-wrenching ABS sounds (there is boggerall elegant about Toyota's ABS - Other cars at least try to hide the massive predicament you find yourself in- Toyota announces it to the world!).

    What sounded like the end of the world turned out to be TSC - Trailer stability control! Literally, within not more than 2 lengths of the rig the little Hilux that could was running like a clock (I am assuming rolling his eyes from side to side with embarrassment to see who saw this episode).

    SO just for clarity on what happened we tried it again 3 more times and every time it was accurate precise and life saving.

    This is really a life saving measure which I honestly hope to never ever test again!
