I think this speaks for the quality of the two vehicles.

Chris - Wat too simplistic way to determine a vehicle's quality!

Using the same theory then = I had a 1996 Landcruiser that kept doing the back diff and it only had 70k on the clock

My Rodeo has done 70k and no issues with the diff.

Using your method of quality the Rodeo is a better car in this case?

TerraFirma :-) Very True - But the Cruiser also used a lot more fuel with a gutless 4.2, my rodeo 3ltr eats the cruiser non turbo 6 for 1/2 the fuel cost.

:-) Bring it on..... Cheers

Have 05 spacecab from new with 78k now on the clock. Only incidents have been replace fuel sender unit on first service which I doubt fixed the problem as fuel empty light comes on with still about 16l left but I can live with that. Otherwise all good.

So what is the problem Pete?

At 60,000 it should still be under warranty.
Any mechanical piece of equipment may fail at any time. That is what warranties are for.

Unfortunately, these things are pretty common with the rodeo/jackaroo...small niggly issues like clutch slipping at 130kms, sensors going us....i hope the starter is the only problem you have....keep an eye on the chassis for cracks too.

That wouldnt be too painful, the contacts are usually a sign the battery wasnt too healthy or a wire was not tight enough...too much voltage drop = too many amps through the contacts...just be aware that the rodeo is a light duty 4wd and you should have heaps of fun with it.

thanks for that dozer - will be having a chat with my auto electrician this morning, as for light duty all i really want is to tow my van on the tarmac - go to the beach, do fraser island and a bit of the inland. my brother a dairy farmer, and the one with the engineering gene in the family, is on to his second rodeo and i actually purchased it on his recommendation. cheers
