A good reliable utility that lets you go just about anywhere


Nothing mechanical as yet, Touch wood. Just the ceiling material coming loose on the passenger's side.

General Comments:

Very happy with the old ute, ex NSW Agriculture car so its stock as with VN Calais wheels on it.

Interior is excellent considering I can hop straight in after my bike race covered in mud a not worry about destroying the interior, its got the plastic/rubber floors and vinyl seats.

The 5spd gearbox provides smooth shifting and offers you a range of power when needed.

Not really happy with the payload, but that can be easily fixed.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
