    One of our esteemed members is sharing his services.

    Car buying in any country is an experience - RD = more so !!

    I have purchased alone before - here - but car buying is like underwear buying.... you don't do it that often !

    As it happens, I am just wrapping up a purchase this week.... and had the help of Michael.


    WW
    And you're not going to tell us what you bought???

    Ha ha... WW, either you or I am having a senior moment. Where did you mention Isuzu MU-X in this thread?

    Or was it in another thread?

    Those Isuzu diesels... I gotta tell ya. A little PM and it will still be around long after you're gone.

    Some Denyo Electric generators have the 3 cyl Diesel. The super silent ones are so quiet you can barely hear them.

    Glad you guys found one!

    I think I have told the story of driving an '88 Isuzu Trooper from Bend, Oregon to Costa Rica and driving it there for a year trouble free in places most people could not walk.
    So WW we are expecting a full review, along with mileage Pros and Cons after you have driven it enough to report.
    Maybe a Frank 12 type video with the MU-X crisscrossing the island replete with some eclectic background jazz ?

    I hear about the durability... and am hoping it's true.I'll get some goggles, fold down the wind screen and turn up the radio.

    How's that?

    You're thinking about your Wrangler again. Do you still have the CJ6? Or did I miss something again?
