Hi all, my name is Michael.
My first post here, I'm new to this forum...and soon new to owning a new Bakkie.
I'm interested to hear your opinions.

I'm looking at Toyota,Ranger primarily - both will do what i require but i like the the hilux the most.
What about current Hilux owners - can you share your experience?
Thanks.

Hi Michael,

I'm pretty new here as well. I've only had my hilux since December, but I love it. I have an older 2006 4.0L V6 SR5 dual cab. It is an excellent daily driver (doesn't feel like a big car at all) and does everything I need offroad on the weekends.

I have driven a ranger for work and I have to say I like the hilux much better. There was just something off about the ranger. I couldn't seem to get used to the turning circle or the sight lines. It's entirely possible that I'm just a terrible driver, but it just didn't feel intuitive to drive. On the other hand I felt instantly at home in the hilux. That being said I have a friend who drives a ranger and he's very happy with it. I guess it all comes down to how each feels to you. What models are you looking at and what is your intended usage?
