  1. I had an Anycar in my hilux, worked really really well, I still have it but did a quick swap out with a hiace to get it all in one unit,
  2. The first thing I will ask is are the front and rear tyres the same ? ie same brand/size/wear/pressure if not then this could be your issue
  3. @Dacerx
  4. I dont have an issue with them pulling over for my Hilux #bullbar
  5. Would not know, the Brumby not fast enough to pass much I do Know a lot hate getting passed by the Estima ( 200kw and AWD and we drive it like we stole it ) Also know they not happy when I pass them in the Hilux either ( 1kd 3 litre turbo and rolling on 20"s )
  6. I am a toyota fan, always have been always will be, have an 05 hilux, 310000km never missed a beat, I have never done the injectors, the auto is good, run it in 4wd once in awhile, running it on 20's, handles bloody well, goes good. the Isuzu dmax's are good better then the colorado The nissan seems good would not touch ford/mazda would not touch chinese/indian built just yet maybe another 5 years
  7. OK we are looking for a new vehicle to replace the Estima, Most likely another Estima because of 8 seats BUT I stumbled on to these so here are my questions 1/ body/ drivetrain which platform are they on ( guessing Legacy/Levorg) Engine 2lt t but what version ? 2/ Does anyone here own one that has a owners manual/ or know where i can look at one, want to know if rear seats are car seat compatible ( believe it or not MOST 7/8 seat vehicles rear most seats are not car seat "legal" ) 3/ any known issues Thanks guys I am so not up to the play with anything newer than 1990
  8. What type of diagnostic computer was it and did you go through the walkthrough for that code ?
  9. Is that what the Diagnostic computer said it was ?
  10. Oh you are going to hate me then I found mine in a barn in Tauranga, non runner but pretty good body wise, had a fuel issue ( turned out being a blocked pickup in the tank now fixed) 200,000 km on clock for $600, runs mint, no oil use does not over heat
  11. Got the house but a nice Tesla x wid ludicrous mode would be great
  12. Meh i have my dream 1989 Brumby, stock standard, fun to drive only owes me $1000 so I guess it all depends on what is your dream car
  13. Holy Crap, the lux is $183,brumby $ 148 Interesting the brumby is 5 seats SUBARU MPV 1.8 4WD 5 SEATER 1800cc PETROL (1989) $98 for the Missus' Estima, To be honest the information is pretty sketchy at best
  14. Coolant is necessary, it has a life span, usually about 5 years and do we know when it was last changed ? Once again a few dollars to change the brake fluid ( also has a life span and is anhydrous so sucks water out of the air) is cheaper than caliper rebuilds Going on that getting rid of your waste engine oil is getting harder as well ( I will take as much as I can get as I heat my house with it )
