History: We bought the car in August 2011 and traveled with it from South Africa up to Kenya and will drive it back now. Service was done every 7000 kms. The previous owner spent over 60'000 ZAR on the car (only labour). All the works have been done in March/May 2010, including:
Reconditioning of the engine, turbo unit and gearbox
Fitting new brake pads, fuel pump, 5 injectors, suspension,
Testing of cylinder leakage and all 5 cylinders are at 100 % etc.
...as he intended to travel to the UK (all receipts are available).
We replaced the probshaft, rearaxels, aircondition, sealed and redid the transfer case and other minor maintenance work as e.g. replacement of the brake pads, wheelbaring.
We are aware that you will find cheaper cars on this website, but there was a lot of money invested into that specific car just one year ago and thus it's a very reliable car. Nearly everything in this car is new or reconditioned, so it's definitely worth the money.
