I'll think about buying one when they are shown to be reliable as a Toyota, Subaru or Mazda

Wow, under reliability they say dodgy ( with 'probably' in MUCH smaller text ), see "what goes wrong". Under "what goes wrong" they say too soon to tell. . . .

Safety have scathing reviews because it lacks 3point centre rear belts and airbags. they grudgingly admit it meets all safety regs it is required to, but that is hidden in long text. . .

bias much?


Yeah. If they were any more racist we'd have to give them guaranteed council seats in our shiny new supershitty.

People have been lapping up Thai assembled Hilux models for some time now - I think after working on a number of them , the Chinese will probably run rings around their Thai compadre's
