Looking at buying a Feroza - what pro's or con's?

Unread post by Petes 80 » November 17th, 2013, 8:38 pm

Hi All,

As the heading suggests I am considering buying a Feroza for the missus as a daily and a way to get her own 4x4.
I currently have a modified 80 series that she drives everyday to work and its sending us broke :lol: :lol: :lol: .

What I am after is just a bit of a list of things to look out for and the pro's and con's of the feroza compared to a vitara, as I am still undecided what way to go.

Thanks for any help or info that you can give

cheers

Pete

They are a good little car, although parts can be harder to finf then the vitara and aftermarket mods are harder to find.
They are decent on fuel too, having only a 1.6, probably look at the feroza two.

Go and test drive some and compare them to the vitara.
THey are a pretty good little 4x4

Be prepared to do a lot of work yourself if it has problems, new parts a hard to come by. A good project machine, and fun to drive (I wished they still made Ferozas.)

the Pro's are that there are no con's (but i may be a little biased) but if you buy one you won't regret it....
I absolutely love mine and will never sell it.

I've read that you check 4wd drive works..other then putting it in 4l and 4h how can you tell it actually works?
Thanks any comments would be appreciated greatly!
