We had the diesel motor Ford Courier on the farm and while the vehicle was reliable in the period we owned it, fuel consumption was horrendous. Wasn't only ours as spoke to other owners. We traded it on a Triton purely because of fuel consumption as the vehicle did a lot of kilometres between the farms and vineyards everyday.

I had a 2.5L diesel courier extra cab. It went everywhere I pointed it, but was a bit on the gutless side, being the non turbo version.


Mine ate a gearbox, but not every vehicle is perfect.

I wouldn't go that far.
I once winched a 70 series out of a mud hole and found why it wouldn't drive forward.
Front and rear drive shafts were still attached to the transfer case which was sitting on the ground and the gearbox was snapped in 1/2.

At least with the Courier I could drive it the 2000km from Cooktown to home holding it in 5th.
