    Hi Petra, just saying, they have a fully loaded one at IPop in West Rand (Roodepoort side). Has a few already extras last time I checked.

    It is a nice upgrade from previous version. Slightly bigger, more quiet and better cabin noise. Also newer tech.

    Petri , wat doen jy nou om so 'n draad te begin met lesers wat ook lede is van die www.mygatjeuknouvreeslik.com ! !😡🙈🤗

    Met die potholes deesdae in die Vrystaatse dorpe en buite paaie is 'n Polo TSI nie meer 'n opsie nie.

    Jeuk Jeuk Krap Jeuk, ek wil 'n outo he, met hak, reverse camera ens , wit/ivory of jungle green, maar ek kan myself nog nie oortuig om R 365 K te betaal nie, dit voel net te veel, tweedehands met beter prys gaan nie vinnig gebeur nie ..........maar ek gaan so vinnig moontlik draai maak daar by die hoek oorkant Kentucky om my nog te laat dink 😁

    Ek wonder hoe die 1500 enjingroote se kraglewering met die kronkel langpad opdraandes maak.?

    I had an old 2.8 Shorty Pajero in that same dark green colour, and it never became boring. I still miss that Paj, I bought a later model for SWAMBO, but I'm afraid the new ones have lost the character AND off road ability of the old model (the 65 profile tyres probably added a lot to this). So we since got rid of it and I don't even miss it.


    Did you know that the Jimny is actually bigger on the inside than on the outside? Struth, you can fit another Jimny inside yours.

    Wag tydperk manual +- maand , Auto +- 2 mnde

    Het gister die wit manual toets bestuur, definitief meer krag as die ouer 1300 en ' n lekker sag ry vir 'n shorty, ry gerief het my verbaas.

    Actually damn nice idea - small capable 4x4 camper.

    Daai agterkant lyk net te kort op die Wheelbase.......sou hom so knortsie langer gemaak het om minder soos 'n Tuk Tuk te laat lyk

    Gustav, since you own both, does the new one cruise a lot easier on the open road at 120 kph, up and down the hills? I had a 2010 model, and the only thing I did not like very much was stability on gravel roads and open road cruising ability.

    I stand 6'2 and weigh over 100 and I need to move the seat slightly forward as it's too much of a stretch to the steering wheel when it's right back, and about 8 inches of headroom to spare. Incredibly comfortable car and my other car is a Fortuner to give you an idea of what I'm used to.

    I wanted to buy the previous one, but I dont fit too lekker behind the steering wheel as the seat cant go back far enough and steering column could not adjust.


    I do LOVE the look of the new Jimny - its just got that something to it.

    I've been thinking about getting something else since I heard they stopped production of the Gypsy.
    Looked at Mahindra when I heard about the new Thar, but they are supposed to be about 450K.
    Looked at a whole lot else and realized the Jimny is after all not expensive at all, I just don't get paid enough!

    Had to use my retrenchment package from 2018 to pay off the Gypsy, and with everything going on job security is not great, but if things are stable at work this year I will slash the beer budget and get a Jimny, any colour as long as it's auto.

    Quite a big difference, the new model has a 1500 motor, I have had it up to 160 Km/h........
    It quite happily runs up the passes I normally drive in 4th gear, where the older one does it in third.
    Weird that you did not like the stability on gravel roads, for me it feels more stable than the old work Fortuner that I also drove......
    The older one is my trail/camping drive, still feel sorry for the new one

    Ek het Julie 2018 besluit ek wil ook een hê – ek was spesifiek hy moet wit wees en auto. Uiteindelike word een beskikbaar (na 8 maande se wag) maar net voor hy kom (week voor lockdown) laat weet handelaar dat hy is ongelukkig nie wit nie maar die “terrible” geel/groen. My eerste reaksie was nee dankie maar dit ek nie langer as ‘n dag geneem voor SWAMBO my oortuig het dat ek nie te oud is vir ‘n “funky” kleur nie. Toe ons hom eers begin ry het, het al die ander kleure skierlik so “bland” begin lyk en nou verruil ek hom vir geen ander kleur nie. Uit die aard soek jy natuurlik nooit vir jou kar in ‘n parkeer area nie 😊.
    Hy was van dag een ‘n twee sitplek – ek het lank genoeg tyd in “lockdown “ gehad om ‘n mooi semi permanente rak agter in te bou. Verder het ek 215x75x15 bande opgesit (kan nie regtig groter gaan met die 6” rims nie – en mooi 5 gat mags is blykbaar maar skaars).
    Behalwe leer sitplekke en OME suspensie wat hom so 40mm gelig het is hy standaard.
    Ons was in Oktober op soort van ‘n 4x4 trip gewees (St Lucia – Kosibaai) en hy het hom heel skaflik gedra. Op die oop pad was dit bietjie van ‘n gesukkel om oor 110 met cruise control te ry aangesien hy met die geringste opdraande terug spring na 3de – ek vermoed dat met handrat (5 ratte) sal dit baie beter gaan.
    Vandat ek hom het, het my Hilux nog nie beweeg nie en ek soek elke dag ‘n rede om met hom te ry.
    Ek laaaik my Jimny kwaai.
