- My New Car (my new car content)
Coming flat out at 83mph (trailing a cloud of black smoke) to the outside lane of a motorway near you soon (and welded to the back bumper of the car ahead)…
That sounds a bit like the Navara I picked up during the week, although I got a bit more than 83 out of it on the M5 back to Royal Portbury Dock. It had had a fairly hard life, though; I picked it up from the Royal Marine Commandos base in Exeter, and it wasn’t in what you’d call showroom condition…
I wasn’t welded to the back bumper of anything in front, though there were a couple of people who were happy to just pull out without looking/indicating, but that happens all the sodding time. #rollseyes
Not what I’d choose as an everyday mode of transportation, though.Posted 1 year agojimjamMember
Nice one OP, pick-ups are great (despite what some miserable sods say). My first “car” was an LN107, had an LN106 and an LN105 and I recently bought an LN173 for a bit of part time arb work. I had every intention of buying a mk6 or mk7 but I couldn’t see any meaningful improvement other than size over my old trucks. From what I understand the mk8 is much improved though.Posted 1 year agoKitMember
Is there any reason you went for the Hilux over the Navara, Ranger or X Class?
Only the Ranger and Hilux were on my radar after doing an initial scan of reviews. Test drove both, and talked to loads of folk round here about their/others’ experiences with pickups. I preferred the feel of the Hilux (not as massive as the Ranger), the price was better, the warranty was better, I could get the colour I wanted (I don’t think Ford were offering a white Ranger without coughing up more money), and the sales guy had a much better (IMO) attitude. Wasn’t bothered about the interior – it’s only going to get covered in filth anyway.
The only weapon in my Hilux will be my big chopper.
