A good work horse!


Radiator leak- discovered by dealer and replaced under warranty.

Oil leak from transfer case (twice) - several days off road for rebuild.

Rain water leak in cabin - 4 attempts by dealer to fix it and the leak is still there!

General Comments:

Tough unit - off road regularly and never a problem.

Comfort - bad driver seating position for anyone 6ft plus.

Great load carrier - hauled 3/4 tonne gross trailer and fully loaded tray for 800km with no problem.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
