    Is turbo lag a 'thing' on this 2.0l?

    Yes it is, one of the cons I will report on the car unfortunately.
    I put in an IDrive and it helps a tiny bit but brake boosting is part of my life now.

    Then engine power in general could do with a boost, many people do but I will not be going the mapping route. Not why I bought the car.

    That's why you have it.
    Out of curiosity, can you post a pic of how it is attached to the car?

    It is attached the same way my rangers side steps were. Bolted just next to the frame 2x bolts, front middle and back. So 6. Won't handle a hi lift or the full weight of the car but much better than a bent side step.

    Good day all.

    I am new to this thread. Was previously with Mazda/Ford. Had my 2.5 for 17 years so it was time for n new bakkie.

    I tested them all and settled on the LT.
    Excellent service from Vredenburg although I reside in KZN.

    So here goes. When fueling up I am used to fill my vehicles right to the top, but I am having difficulty with the GWM. On first click to me it is not full yet, so I keep on putting more diesel, maybe even 3 liters more and still not full. I am trying to find out when is it full, because it just keeps on drinking the diesel?

    Maybe I should stop on first click. I am not sure.

    Cheers

    The "80L" tank is closer to 90L. I have filled 87L personally.

    First issue, a spot of oil on the ground.
    Took off the sump guard and it was pooling a bit. Not a lot but something isnt lekker.

    Going into dealer tomorrow.

    Gearbox cooler pipe. Chaffed through from rubbing against the radiator fan cowl support.
    According to social media, a common problem on the LTD spec.

    Part is on back order but we agreed that it can rather be replaced with a generic pipe so I dont have to wait.
    GWM has sent the pipe for replacement and hoping for it to be fixed today.

    Well that was a pleasure Hatfield GWM/HAVAL. I have my car back in working order.
    Hose replaced, tied it away from the problem area, gearbox oil changed and sommer did a service all before lunch. Foreman kept me up to date, Q20'd my slightly squeaky ironman leaf springs on request while it was up there.

    I stressed that I really needed the car back for tomorrow for Race to the Sun so the aftersales manager drove personally to pick up the part and paid himself just so I didnt have to wait for warranty to approve before work could start. They said they will claim back once paperwork is done next week.

    Great service and quick turn around

    Possibly any photos so we can tie away as preventive

    If you take off the front bash plate, 5 bolts (Careful the thing is fricken heavy) you can see these 2 hoses rubbing where I circled going to the lower cooler.
    I would ask the dealer to order a replacement either way though as it is probably already chaffed a bit.
    I didnt see how they tied it away though.

    I'll gather some energy and remove the plate this weekend to check.

    I wonder if this should be a recall though...

    Definately should be. Iím sure Iíve seen this issue on one of the Aussie forums or Facebook pages only affecting the LTD

    Today I learnt I can change the car setting on the camera between opaque, translucent and transparent.
    Pretty sure this isnt in the manual. Will be fun on the next 4x4 excursion
