And those other models are 100% reliable too and don't have issues eh?

Latest toyota hilux (Fortuner, Prado aswell) - dust ingress issues through airbox/inlet that Toyota won't admit to, among other issues.

Ford Ranger - Gearboxes exploding everywhere especially when used for towing and engines melting pistons.

Nissan Navara......

Shall we start a list or keep the blinkers on?

Volkswagen currently holds a majority share in Audi, Scania, MAN, Porsche, owns Skoda Auto, Lamborghini, Bentley, SEAT and Ducati.

BMW owns Mini, and Rolls-Royce.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles owns Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep,Nissan, Mitsubishi Maserati, and Ram.


Every manufacturer has problems. It depends how they handle the problems that count.

VW were involved in one of the greatest scandals in motor vehicle history if not the greatest. That's enough for me to give them a big miss.

I watched my Mk6 Golf GTD drop in value approximately 20% due to that debacle, VW pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud the US, at least one VW employee has been sentenced to jail, but VW Australia denies that anything is wrong.

Why anybody would trust this company is beyond my understanding.
