I think this special warranty started in March and now extended to April. Don't know if it is ongoing. 7 years is awesome!

You should post some pics of your car, sounds like what I'm after.

Still reading, but leaning more and more towards PS on paper at least.

Nothing else comes close to the bang for buck.

When is the nicer facelift coming out?

Hmm, that's too far away I think.

Which is a shame as I don't really want to eat the next wave of depreciation that's coming for the series 1.

I've been toying with the idea of a Triton instead, ute would be handy for rural property living, but the PS has better space in the middle row (just) and appears to be much nicer as a daily.

Maybe i can just get some slim rear draws and an awesome cargo mat or something.

With a Triton, you're back to a leaf sprung rear axle. Comfort as a daily goes out the window! (no offence meant to Triton owners, but that's the truth)

Yeah I realise that, and will test drive, but the appeal of a ute on a rural property is good. Issue is my car tends to be the family trip car, so I do need something comfier.

After suggestions here I've also been looking at Pajero's which are a good 1-200 kg lighter than a cruiser, lighter than a prado, seemingly well regarded (was looking at say NX GLS).

Time to get out and drive some.

The PS is no doubt more modern and likely nicer to drive than the Paj, but I'm semi concerned about things like the new 8spd box, more gadgets to break etc.

Rule of thumb was never buy series 1 of anything, i realise the engine is not new to the platform but there's plenty of stuff that appears to be.

I'm very happy with my NX after 3 years of trouble free touring the country from top to bottom. One thing which would bother me on the PS is the smaller fuel tank. I know there's an upgrade around but that lowers ground clearance and still isn't as big as the NX with the second tank fitted.

The NX tows well and while there aren't many bells or whistles, it's a bloody good reliable truck.

The ground clearance is appealing also as I have a hilly block with some steepish angles in places, 2" lifted cruiser occasionally scrapes gas tank but otherwise OK.

Also bigger physically inside than PS I think and fairly well proven engine/box combo?

It's just the hair splitting between NX/NW and year grades with things like android auto vs normal stereo, reverse sensors or not (does nothing have front sensors? I came from territory that had both and it was great).

I'm not big on leather usually either I find cloth more hard wearing and easier to deal with, but it appears the GLS seats are actually different, not just the trimming.

I will pull my finger out and go drive some. I keep saying that but time is bloody short lately!
