Summary:

Perfect car for extreme off roading

Faults:

Clutch repaired.

Engine was in a very bad situation when I bought the car. Changed with a Toyota Landcruiser turbo diesel engine (Type 2L-T).

General Comments:

Very strong body (used in extreme off-road races - won all races in 1st place).

Torque value is not enough.

Fast for an 4x4.

Successfull with 4.9m turning ability.

Not for tall people (I am 1.88m) as standard (changed the seats, it's OK now).

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
