Ford Terrible service and vehicles

Hi Guys Just thought I would share this with you and hopefully get Ford to solve this issue. We bought two new Fords for our transfer company in SA. Took deliver and noticed that the fords had a fairly severe rattle and vibration on the rear seats. We took it to the ford dealer in JHB and they said that this was a something they could not fix but rather an issue with the vehicle manufacturing. They contacted the ford engineers who then viewed the vehicle and responded in writing below: "Morning ...

Fortunator has been sold

It's a sad day as I say goodbye to the Fortunator, the vehicle that inspired me to build this forum After many years of amazing travel experiences, it was time to give her a new home. I made sure that I still had one Fortuner in the stable before I sold Fortunator, which my wife drives during the day and I steal at night on my neighbourhood watch patrols . I got a Hilux D4D 4x4 2011 with 50 000km on the clock in the interim but I do not think that car is going to last too long in my stable until...

Botswana info

hi Rory, I would recommend staying at Xnai pans if you go to Baines Baobab. Bains is cool but Xnai is the only place you will have water so if you want to see some wildlife then maybe stay at Xnai Pans which is a few km from Bains. I hope that helps a bit

Hi Members If you get a chance pick up your addition of the 4x4 Mag for March and check out our Fortuners in action in Zambia. This should be good publicity for the Fortuner's and their ability to rough it. Its a great article by Christopher Clark our travel writer.

Bad news on new Fortuner

Hi Guys, Something that might also help is to brand your car or put your reg number on your roof or pull a stripe across the roof so you car does not look like every other Fortuner. This is more if somebody steal the car and you want to track it down. Taxis do this a lot so there must be some truth in it. The other option is to move to Cape Town ...... I am touching a lot of wood right now!
