Hi Guys,

Just joined the forum recently and am in need of a bit of perspective.

I own a 2000 Hilux 2700i 2x4 mint condition with 158'000km on (real mileage) and only put 4400km on her in the last two years.

Now I am contemplating selling her (well knowing I would not be able to buy a D/C Hilux again with that mileage at "affordable" price).

Any advice? Or anyone that has made the same decision recently?

My sole motivation is the fact that I use her so rarely.

Are you going to replace her if she is sold?

If so, don't sell.

If not, sell.

Riaan, vat nou my opine asb. Ek het die 2001 model gehad en tot vandag nog spyt dat ek dit verkoop het! Ek aanvaar jy skuld nie meer op hom nie, prober hom hou en koop dan iets anders! Die mark daar buite gaan jou indoen op 'n inruil en 150% wins maak op jou voertuig! Dis fantastiese voertuie hierdie, wel bietjie swaar op die fuel, maar puik. Geen site visit op siviele projekte het my en my bakkie gekeer nie, groot geheim moenie onodig kanse vat in moelike terrain nie en die difflock werk wonders saam met die regte bandruk. Ek besef 'n 4x4 is almal se droom voertuig, maar 'n mens verloor perspektief omte ding 'n 4x4 kan orals gaan, nee! Jy val net vas baie verder van beskawing omdat jy begin kanse vat.

Wel dis my opinie!

Thanks for the input guys!

A couple of neutral opinions really puts things in perspective.

I am going with 4x4Bees' second comment - I am not going to replace her if I sell her (the past two years' usage proves that) hence on the market she goes.

I do agree with Rianc's comments: a 100% reliable vehicle that will take you 98% of the places you want to go. But no site work (for which I use my private vehicle) planned in my future... Sorry Rianc!

Anyway, thanks for the clarity!

Ja, if you nether use it sell it to somebody who will use it. 4000km in two years is like going to the caffe and back each day.
