Best Of The Bunch?

Recommended Posts

Looking for people's opinions, good and bad on the usual suspects......l200,Navara,Ranger,Isuzu,hilux.

May possibly have 5/6k on somthing, am I pissing in the wind or are they worth a punt?

Cheers, Matt

Could you give a little more information about your experiences of reliability of the iszuzu cost of any repairs and mpg

 

I currently have a ford ranger which has been reliable apart from re occurring egr valve issue which mechanic says is the most common fault on all vehicles by far.

 

Just had it stripped cleaned and refitted.

 

Currently getting about 30 mpg.

better off blanking the egr. Cleaner engine and less hassle.

What was wrong with it, the dmax is one of the next ones I have been considering early next year.

I have a 2007 2.5tdci.

 

It had 114000 on when i baught it and apart from egr valve has been no issue pulls quad up to dales like its not there and a comfy ride.

 

looking to blank egr as has been mentioned more trouble than its worth putting on the warning light which without taking it to garage you do not know that.

 

I think every one would agree the hilux is possibly the best in class but the second hand value is just too much.
