    Default Vehicle Classifieds - why see non-4X4 sedans?

    Forgive me if this issue has been raised and explained before!
    I am an avid browser of the Classifieds to see what 4X4s are for sale from time to time. It however irritates me no end to have to browse past "everyday vehicles/sedans" e.g. VW Polos and Toyota Corollas. Surely this is a site for 4X4 enthusiasts and should be dedicated to 4X4 and related matters. Am I the only one irritated by this?

    Huh

    Unbelievable! I think most people who has a 4x4 also has a platcar. or a daughter who needs wheels for their university.

    There is only one or two items posted per day.

    Some people say this is everything but 4x4 forum i disagree we are a site for 4x4 enthusiasts but we live in the real world and their is a world outside low range, diff locks and 4x4 trailers.

    I am amused and my day made.

    If this is your greatest concern, you don't have many in life.

    When I was looking for a car for my daughter I often looked at the Classifieds for a platkar - the reason - I believe the people on this forum is more trustworthy than Gumtree or some used car dealers. So I disagree - it is not just for 4x4's. Just browse past the the items you are not interested in.....just like any other non-4x4 related item in the classifieds.

    Considering the 'Pub' is the most used side of this forum with all it's politics and philosophical thoughts and complaints etc and the overlanding section gets a new post once a week (I am exaggerating) I'm not surprised the classifieds has regular normy stuff and not just 4x4/overland gear.

    Maybe a sub section as
    a) Real vehicles (4x4)
    b) Plat karre

    Then we would have to define real 4x4s

    I would say at least front and back lockers with SFA is required
