    Default Went playing with the Koleos

    On Saturday a friend and myself went driving around Stuck in the Mud.

    The Koleos on it's platkar tyres impressed in the mud. My friend is a Ford Ranger driver and he was blown away with the capability of the Koleos.

    ESC was off most of the time and 4x4 lock engaged.

    Pub is nog oop ja.

    Daai spesifieke gat waaruit ek boontoe gery het, het nog 'n ander paadjie wat heel regs in hom inloop. Daai paadjie is heeltemal geblok met gemors. Hoogs frustrerend.

    Elke keer as ek daar kom, is dit erger.

    Ek sal so iemand iets aandoen as ek hom vang.

    @Bartho, kar is Maandag silwerskoon geskrop. Die modder pla my ook.

    Korrek. Dis die opdrag wat ek vir die washbay gegee het.

    Went to fetch SWAMBOs gran in Senekal this morning.

    About 400km there and back.

    Again I realised just what a superb vehicle the Koleos is, considering I paid R150k for it. Plus it is still under factory warranty.

    The cabin is very quiet for an SUV, the ride very comfortable. I had enough power for overtaking (the N1 was a MESS!), I had a decent sound system streaming from my phone, I had the climate control set just so. If it was chilly, I could have toasted my behind with the heated seats. I had built in Satnav.

    Enthusiastic driving and overtaking saw exactly 10km/l for the trip.

    Plus it is quite capable offroad for a softroader.

    If you buy any other SUV under R200k, you need your head read.

    Lekker. Ek koop nou vir mamma nou 'n 2011 model met slegs 71,000 op die klok. Is vir haar om soccer mom meer te speel meer as enige iets anders, maar ek dink ek sal hom moet toets op die duine kort voor lank. My brein s vir my dat die 2.5 meer as genoeg voema in sy gat moet h. Moet eerlik s ek was beindruk met hoe stil hy is in die kajuit as jy ry en met die ruimte voor en agter, is bedrieglik groot binne. Glad nie bekend met hulle nie, maar ons het 2 Renault Clio's van tervore al besit en ek het geen probleem nog met hull gehad nie, altyd nog 'n lekker kar gewees om meer te ry.

    I used to have that model. Very good car and capable offroad.

    One word of advise, DON'T add 3rd party sound equipment. I took my Koleos and had 2 amps fitted, 2 JBL 14" subs and Infiniti speakers all around on a separate amp. Even with the proper fuses and tapping the right power points the Koleos did NOT LIKE it. I had endless fuse box problems. The engine management gave problems - related to power issues on the computer. I would open electric windows and the motors would pop it was a disaster.

    It was just a nightmare.

    Other than, its a solid and reliable car thats also very capable.

    Sjoe! That sounds terrible.

    Koleos was sold to my BIL end Nov 2018. Still going strong and he does some mega mileages.

    Excellent car.
