New tow vehicle

Got a phone call from Sandy a few days ago asking me what sort of 4x4 I like . Thinking practically I told her which one so the search began . After looking at a number of them on line and in person (not me ) Sandy found a good one . Rang me again and said happy birthday.  Sandy and my mum collect it tomorrow but w hi knows when I will get to drive it .

That’s awesome Russ

 I just gave myself a belated 40th birthday new tow vehicle yesterday. Picked up a dual cab 79 series. To say I'm stoked is an understatement and my 12 year old car nut son is beside himself

 Don't want a bigger boat. Then other family members will want to come out all the time.

Not bad at all Russ, I got an email today from Challenger Ford today offering 5 years of free services if I go buy a new Everest. Has got me thinking.

Dealers were really struggling before the pandemic.

Fri, 2020-05-15 20:02

 If you can't get a good deal now, you aren't trying. I bought a new vehicle , picked up 5th February, just before it all really started to happen.

Is that a 3.0 or 4.2 Russ?

Fri, 2020-05-15 20:44

 A word of warning, if it's a 3.0 St 3ltr, check the wheel nuts regularly! Especially left hand side (undo rotation)

there was a cheap and shit recall for that problem from Nissan, and that was to provide 3x plastic Nissan wheel nut caps per rim. In summary, they can work themselves loose with the factory wheels. A change to sunraysa's fixes that. 
 

like others have said though, top b'day present, and I hope it serves you well. 
cheers

Sorry

 Just checked again, it's already for sunraysas so you're in the clear. 

happy motoring! The standard Nissan 5 spoke alloys were the biggest culprits of what I mentioned above.
