My wife is considering getting the Fortuner.

I am suggesting the Automatic. Are there any concerns with the automatic transmission?

Welcome Christo you'll have to wait for the wise men to answer your post in detail . I have never heard any body moan about it,though the manual is always a good choice.

Ek persoonlik het nog geen klagtes gehoor van een van die twee nie. So ek dink dit gaan maar om te ewe wees en meer gaan oor persoonlik smaak en waarvoor die voertuig gebruik gaan word. Ek praat onder korreksie maar ek dink daar is wel 'n verskil in brandstof verbruik in dat die outomaties klein bietjie swaarder is.

My swaer het die Auto boks, die voertuig word meestal gebruik om die boot te sleep op die strand en die boot in die water te sit, auto op die strand is wonderlik, geen wheel spin soos n manual nie! Die problem kom by 'n afdraande pad, dan moet jy mooi tyding he met die vrag en die remme gebruik.

Maar soos hulle se, dit hang af wat jy wil doen.

Dankie vir die terugvoer

Dit Fortuner sal my vrou se ryding wees en ook gebruik word as familie kar. As ons weg gaan is dit gewoonlik erens in die bos en het net gewonder of daar enige iets is wat jy moet in agneem met die 4x4/ auto kombinasie. Dit sal natuurlik hemels wees in die verkeer.

My bakkie bly darem

Okay, so in convinced SWAMBO ( had to google this one :laugh2: ) to take the 4x4 in Auto.

Unfortunately Toyota is not very keen on discount, especially if you are trading in another vehicle

What do you guys thinks about fitting the Toyota nudge Bar and tow bar. Seems that it is cheaper to find these second hand. Will we jeopardize the warranty if we fit it afterwards?

I'm trying to convince SWAMBO to go for the replacement bulbar and at least rock sliders, but she is not keen. She is a bit of a 'par 3' ( golf slang vir 'kort gat') so she uses the steps to climb in.
