Thanks Dawie, and thanks for being a good custodian of her for 20 years LOL . Any issues I need to look out for? What are her bad habits?Congratulations Nicholas!
That G served me well for 20 years. Pictured in my avatar. It hardly had any off-road use in that time. Pictured in my avatar.
Best wishes for many happy times with it.
Hi Dawie, many thanks for the feedback. Yes I did get all the service history and she does run well. The central locking works intermittently but its on my to do list. One thing that I'm worried about is a smell of petrol in the cab. I took it to a workshop to look for leaks and we could not find anything. Did you ever experience this? Speaking of workshops, is Dirk Wenzel the expert in servicing G wagons or just an expert in hubs? Who did you service it with and would you recommend them?Nicholas, no bad habits, except perhaps the central locking which is still not working every time. I don't know if the seller gave you all the service history but the engine was overhauled not too many kilometers ago and in very good shape - better than new. New clutch, engine mountings, etc. The front hubs was done by Dirk Wentzel an expert and highly rated by all. Brakes were done and brake fluid was changed regularly. Not every year as recommended in the Operating Instructions but every two years. This vehicle certainly has served me very well. No mud baths. Never abused, not in my time. Enjoy!
