Would never touch a Nissan Navara again after the farce with their chassis rotting through. I lost a fortune on that truck.

We have had 2 x Navarra.   Both have been very reliable and neither have had chassis problems. The previous model was very good, the current one, 67plate, has been ultra reliable apart from one sensor whoich was a warranty fix

The 1st one covered about 100k and the current one is on about 65k.

We will either get the same again or maybe a Ford

The new rangers seem good and a lot better drive that the old model.

All depends what you want it for? Out and out work horse, towing, family run about with a big boot? They have different strengths and weaknesses

Had a L200 engine lasted 55,000 before it was toast.

Mate has a Isuzu I personally think the interior trim is cheap

I was looking at a Pickup last month, And Was thinking hilux. but went in a mates Isuzu D Max and thought it was great. It has some miles on it now hard miles and its been good. Still a toyota hilux fan though, Toyota pickups are very good.

Pros and cons with all of them but I think Hilux are probably the best. Doesn't mean the others aren't worth having.

Never know ... You might open your eyes one moment and find a fit, young woman, straddling you, your chest racing ... if you do ... your probably in A&E and had a heart attack ;)
