So far nothing has gone wrong with this. When I picked it up from the garage, it had a new shock absorber and also a new crank seal, and a new prop-shaft joint.

General Comments:

I swapped this Shogun for a M-registered Toyota 8 seater in mint condition, yes you may say I was mad, but this vehicle I think is great. It looks lovely for its age (H reg), has more miles, but is great to drive.

It is just as roomy as the 8 seater, although minus 1 seat. Great dials on the dash and also runs like new, and it has 169000 miles on the clock??

Fantastic car and would recommend this vehicle to anyone.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
