Hilux Mk7 Invincible

Gonna cut the L200 loose after nearly 7 years of trouble free motoring.

Anyone have any experience of the latest HL Invinci?

I'd take a long look the New Ford Ranger, a few of the Navara boys are moving over to them

I had a quick look, that'll do.

This Mk7 has only been out for a bit, I need to know that it doesn't eat clutches etc. like the other jap offering.

Two of my friends up here have a Ranger and a Hilux, the Hilux is a lovely looking bit of kit but it's owner (and avid Toyota fan) accepts that the Ranger is the better drive

Admittedly they both have the older (07) versions

I bought a new P100 1800TD in '89, that blew-up at 33k. No more Fords.

I have an 11 plate Invincible, I love it.

Ive towed everything from Quads to Argocats to mini diggers with it and it soldiers on without a bother.

It does like a drink when towing! Its in for its 20k service this week.

I took it down to the Formula 1 in Silverstone last July and I was as fresh when I came out of it as I was when I got in to it.

The only problem I have come across (albeit not with mine but other owners) is the diesel light comes on on the dash indicating water in the diesel, however it tells lies, it is waaaay too sensitive and picks up the tiniest little bit of condensation in the fuel. Its an easy remedy to turn the light off, turn IGN off, disconnect plug the turn IGN back on and reconnect said plug...job sorted.

Being a deerstalker my Hilux gets a tough life off the road, Ive put on a set of BFG Mud Terrains and it has affected the motorway handling slightly but its a small price to pay.

I hope some of the above is of some help, go on, buy one... you know you want to!
