What made you decide not to take it further? How much for the oil, air and fuel filter?...... Inform us.... What are the negatives???
ok been driving this a couple of months now, mine's is just over 15000km,so far haven't had any problems with it .it's been maintained by the firm since day one .First service was free second service cost $800,I know that they use a shell synthetic oil and as for the cost of the filters i never really asked but will find out next time.The body of the van is very study I must say and the ride is relatively smooth.Seeing that's its a pickup and I use it for work I have never driven it past 140km although it felt like it wanted to go more ,my average speed that i'm comfortable with is usually around 100km in ANY pickup.It's very good on fuel a tank goes to about 700 km.
I've never driven it off road other that some bad tracks and trace so i can't say anything about that performance
On the negative side the engine is very noisy so never drive with the windows down
I think it needs a better gear ratio ,it is a bit on the lazy side
Sometime while driving you would hear the injector pump race off for a second ,I have no idea what causes that.
Getting accessories for it sucks.I can't even get a set of rims unless I live in India (even the guys from Andy's Tyre shop believed that there are only 3 in the country) dean wheels said that wheel size does not exists lol.
And It's Ugly but but i have gotten used to it
I will continue to post the pros and con as I discover them.
