    Red face Re: Still good people in this country

    Hi All, so this is my profile. I am not on here much. Thanks so much for the very kind words. It is much appreciated. I am just glad I could at least get them all home safely.

    I am always here to help. If I can assist with any vehicle anywhere, I will. We at Auto House Vryheid always try and put our customers first and try to restore the faith in dealers. There is such a bad reputation of dealers.

    I think it is my love for Landys that taught me to help people and the good camaraderie that the community has.

    If any of you ever have any issues in the area, let me know and we will make a plan.

    I repeat it again. I find South Africans in general very helpful. We have never been short when something has gone wrong.

    Dennis is a good example. Thanks Dennis.

    Friend of mine was helped by a car thief in Standerton very very many moons ago. She locked her keys inside a Hi-Ace. Bloke had the tool to open the vehicle and he did it. Bloke was definitely a car thief but also one to help. That is the way it is here. I have many similar stories.

    I do have one benefit. SWAMBO is a true Afrikaner so the communication works better.

    Unfortunately our crime level is such that any person helping somebody on a road takes a risk.

    Thanks to everybody who is prepared to help.

    Just a correction on my first post, Dennis would not take the money for his diesel and said they will sort out later.

    Katberg Tour 2024
    The Jimny 1.3 was left at the roadside yesterday and spent the night there. This morning at 0800 a local farmer, his son and the farm mechanic arrived at the Katberg Hotel to assist.

    They took Tom (the Jimny owner) with them in a 4x4 bakkie back up the Katberg Pass and descended De Waalskloof Pass to where the Jimny was located about 4 km west of Post Retief.

    The fanbelt was changed (not an easy job involving removal of the radiator) but the battery wasn’t charging revealing a deeper problem with the alternator.

    The Jimny was then towed all the way back to the hotel via Adelaide and Fort Beaufort. The cost of this full day operation? “Only for fuel used”

    This was of course flatly refused and the farmer will be fully compensated at going commercial rates.

    It does go to show that the people here in the Eastern Cape have huge hearts. Our gratitude to Robert Gallo, manager of the Katberg Hotel, for setting the recovery in motion and contacting the right people.
