A few days ago I drove past the Ford dealer and saw the new Ranger Wildtrak parked outside. It immediately grabbed my attention!
I went inside and asked the salesman if I can test drive it. Their demo was just out but he called me back the next day. Great service!
I went for a test drive and all I can say is: What a great bakkie! :drool:

I can see why Ford is doing so well.

Now the point of this post is that Toyota will have to get their act together if they want to be no1 again. Especially when it comes to customer service!

P.s. Don't worry I'm not buying a Ford. :taunt:

They are really attention grabbing machines... and the 3.2 engine has heaps of power... I drove one in the dunes last weekend, and I was very impressed... I agree Toyota will have to pull a big rabbit out of the hat.. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Ja nee, die 3,2 loop lekker, veral teen 7km per liter in die dorp, en 6km per liter as jy sleep......

My Hilux met die chip ry n 3.2 dat hy parking soek.

Collegue bought the 3,2 Clubcab. HAPPY !!

after 18 months he traded it in on a double cab - went straight for the 3,2 again.


Another friend bought the 2,2. I have spent a bit of time in his 2,2. VERY impressive !!!

The next conundrum is of course the price!

Here I can buy the Wildtrack, brand new, from the Ford dealer for R330k odd.
In SA the price is close to R500k.

We are definitely getting ripped off! :blackeye:

Iets om oor te dink !!!

Mens koop nie net oor looks nie.

Hulle gaan nog baie huiswerk moet doen om 500 000km plus uit daai 3.2 l te kry

Vriend hier by ons huil lang trane. 255 000km en 2 de Trubo.

Anyway, Ek sal maar nog saam die ouens van Toyota bly (veral die met hulle vingers in hulle gatte). :yahoo: :acute:
Hoop nie Toyota verander te veel aan dinge wat werk nie!!!

Maar net my view , ek kan bake verkeerd wees???!? :blackeye:

Hy kan bly wees hy het 255 000km sover, myne het op 70 000km die hele motor en turbo geblaas.

Toe staan hy 2 maande by Dealer want die fabriek kon nie n engine supply nie :thumbdown:

Het net 4500km gery nadat ek hom gekry het en toe verkoop, teen een mase moerse loss ook nog :evil:
