Dankie mede Hilux Forum-mense vir julle terugvoer.

Ek het van gister af so 170km gedoen - ek kan eerlik se^ die kar ry ongelooflik sag en die masjien is 'n juweel. Ek het 'n V6 Fortuner gehad en ek was mal oor hom maar hierdie ding is op 'n ander vlak van rygenot. Moenie hom gaan toetsbestuur nie - jy gaan in die versoeking gelei word..... :twisted:

Hi Mark - ek wil net die tenk leegry dan sal ek die (eerste) verbruiksyfers post.

Soos ook met die Fortuner hou ek deeglik boek van elke kilometer gery en liter ingegooi so ek sal baie akkurate syfers he soos wat die tyd aanloop.

Mark - ek het nou net die eerste tenk volgemaak - 480kms en 59 liter ingegooi. So amper 8.2km/liter en dit was omtrent algeheel stad stop/ry kondisies. Hierdie een is verseker ligter as my Fortuner en die masjien is 'n juweel.
Hoop nie daar was vanmiddag 'n kamera op die N1 gewees nie want ek het gas so effens oopgedraai - wat 'n gladde, gladde, nogmaals gladde V6 - ek is in die wolke :thumbup: :thumbup:

Met die launch het ek daai ding van sy klok af gery - hulle trek BAIE lekker!

Wees egter wakker as jy bo 160 op die remme gaan staan - hy sukkel om dan mooi reguit te stop.
