Mrs C fancies a pick-up (truck)
My beloved lady wife has only owned one car - the same VW Polo since 1998. It's only done 30,000 miles and has had new wheels, new seals etc to keep it tip-top. I thought she hated big cars.
But I was travelling with my 13 year old son recently and he mentioned that if mum got a new car, she'd said she wants a pick-up.
I was very surprised to say the least, but as a business owner I can get the VAT off and there are good tax reasons to get one, I've jumped into shopping mode and had a look at a class of vehicle that I had never bothered with before.
We've got access to private woodland, which gets pretty wet and rutty on the trails, and if we're going to chop trees then a vehicle that can cope with three kids, chainsaws, shotguns etc could come in very handy.
From what I understand (based in UK), my list of doublecab automatic options is pretty short and consists of:
Toyota Hilux Invincible
Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian
Nissan Navara Tekna or Outlaw
VW Amarok Highline
Isuzu D-Max Utah
Anyone got experience of these? Personally, I'm drawn to the VW, but it is massive
Alos, what's it actually like to own one of these in UK ?
