Astonishing little car
I bought this car in March 2019,it being a 2013 manual model with 86000kms on the clock.I have just finished a drive lasting a month and traversing 10000 kms from Brisbane to Laverton via Winton Alice Springs Yulara and back via the Nullarbor and the Strezleckie track.Approx. 2500 kms of sometimes very rough gravel road.
The car was superb.Totally reliable.Surefooted on the bad corrugations and in the bulldust.Did not even rattle.Engine temp remained at all times half
way between C and H.
In short,a tough and dependable bush tourer.Heaps of space for its size.Just be aware it is a little thirsty at about 10 litres per 100 kms,although it does take 91 ron, and the tank is only 60 litres.However,never did I have to use the extra 20 litres I took with me.Some have commented that clearance is a bit low at 200 mms but this was never a problem for me.
I am enormously impressed by it,particularly bearing in mind it its modest cost and that it was unmodified except for AT tyres.Most 4wds I saw in the outback must have cost a few times more than this car and could not have done any better.To top it off,it is also a practical and nimble car about town.
Purchased at Grays for $13,000.00.
