    Is it always you who drives

    plus, in the home town there are 3 pubs and I live right in the area they are all in so it doesn't matter which one is chosen, it takes me less than 3 minutes to get there

    Is it always you who drives

    It depends, I live in a small town so if we're there everything is within a walking distance. If we go to the next big town we most often get a lift with someone who's already going there, or if that is not an option we take turns driving. If in the capital it's almost always a taxi

    abandoned vehicle owes rent??Legal

    He probably would need a court order to impound and sell the van if there is no written contract that states that he can do that in case of the scenario where the owner doesn't pay. If he doesn't have a bulletproof right to do so he may be facing some serious legal percussions if he does impound...

    Which of the following cars can you tick off your bucket list

    It was a passenger hauling speedboat used for turism purposes. A really good boat. According to the news it might have been of use to you over there :toung:

    A tiny (398kg) car that'll leave a 600 super bike behind...

    That is an interesting project. I've been working on schematics myself for a lightweight high output car for the dragstrip and this is giving me some good ideas. Looking forward to seeing this project evolve

    abandoned vehicle owes rent??Legal

    There is some chance that your friend could take the van to cover the debt. This though would require a lawyer and probably some documents from the courts I imagine. At least that is how it works here (finishing my law degree myself in just over a year) and I'd imagine that there was some...

    Looking for a new offroader

    Went to look at the 4Runner today and all seemed good engine and drivetrain wise. Driveshafts newly replaced and gearbox serviced and rebuilt less than 10.000 km ago. Engine had a good maintenance history but the tires were pretty much done and on a modified car like that one new tires would...

    Toyota engine advise

    Hi there, I'm looking to buy a Toyota 4runner but am wondering about the engine. It has a 3 litre turbo diesel but it has a lot of milage on it (290.000 km / ca 180.000 miles). Does anyone know how these engines do after this much use and how likely it would be for me to have to replace the...

    Looking for a new offroader

    Thanks T9, Right now I'm leaning towards a Toyota 4Runner 3 litre diesel. Only thing is that it does have a lot of milage on it (290.000 km / 180.000 miles). Does anyone have any experience with how these engines handle this kind of milage. I know it is a toyota and will probably outlive us all...

    Do you get your 4x4 dirty?

    I don't have a 4x4 at the moment but working on rectifying the problem. I am however a part of a few communities where the off road car is used a lot. Including the Search and rescue, those cars do get dirty but are always cleaned as soon as we get back. I also go off roading with my friends...

    Looking for a new offroader

    Oil changes

    Yes I have, it's about every 3000 miles. More used to converting the other way around so I made a mistake there...

    Oil changes

    They say about once a year for me so I've followed that. I don't drive much since I live close to everything I need so it's about every 4-5000 km or 6-7000 miles

    Getz fuel consumption

    Geo, it's no problem getting it under 7L/100km on the highway, just checked it in my car and the computer says 8.7 and that is all in town and snow for the last few days. It can easily get down to 5-6 on highways

    RWD vs FWD In the Snow

    Speaking from a lot of experience driving in the snow and ice, DO NOT BRAKE while cornering. It may shift the mass forward but the tires won't grip as they do on dry roads. In my experience it only makes the car slide straight forward even if you have started turning. Best technique is slow...

    Getz fuel consumption

    I've got the same one and the consumptions vary. It's usually around 7-8 l/100 km in mixed driving but after I moved to the city it gets to be around 10 in the wintertime. No mods at all and regular oil changes. Driving on the highway is usually better, can get it down to 4.5-5 but when driving...

    Are you feeling smug

    In ice and snow you don't need a big 4x4 on most roads if you know how to drive in it. Have driven my FWD Getz through some really bad conditions without getting stuck. That being said, it is of course a lot better to have a big 4x4 if you are going off the main roads and it can, in some...
