Rocket I have no idea what they are like off road but a fella i worked with had one and complained constantly about the price and availabilty of spare parts. This may have changed by now but it is worth checking out.

Rocket, any good for what ?????
What do you intend using the vehicle for ???
Great for unsealed roads and getting down onto that beach where conventional vehicles are left 100 metres away at the public car park.
But if your intentions are a little more serious you will be very disappointed (a mate of mine owns one and he has now resigned himself to the fact that if the "boys" are going to go anywhere than unsealed roads he has to travel as a passenger in on of the Tojos or Nissans).

I would not recomend them. I have never heard anything but bad things about them. They are exspensive to maintain, are not very capeable offroad, and, from what I have seen and heard, are not very reliable. I find it hard to imagine why, when there are so many GOOD 4x4's being sold in oz, that these vehicles sell at all. I think you would be much better looking at Pathfinders, Prados, Pajeros, and Jackaroos. All of these vehicles combine good on road manners with decent offroad ability, and have proven themselves to be reliable units when used in the vastly different, extreme conditions, that make up the remaote parts of Austrailia.
Good luck, mate!

A friend had one & I recall her only comment was "every time we go out in it something else falls off"

My neighbour borrowed his brother's Musso to tow a camper trailer away for a weekend family camping trip. His comments on the musso was that the fuel bill nearly broke them, it was there and back, they couldn't afford to get stuck between petrol stations.
Do what the others are telling you, don't buy one.
