This stems from a campfire discussion recently. What drivers with this make of car think they own the road, are impatient and impolite? It appears that 2 brands really stick out and I was wondering if there was general consensus on this. :think:

Would appreciate your thoughts.

Could we perhaps have a separate section for Fortuners. Although I don't have much against Toyota drivers in general, Fortuners specifically create an itch that needs scratching. Not all are bad, but you know which ones I am talking about: They used to drive a little hatchback, and then decided to get a Fortuner, but never before handled a big vehicle in their life. Now suddenly they stop anywhere, park anywhere and sometimes even make U-turns on highways (over the middle man). Just because they drive a bigger vehicle, suddenly the rules of the road no longer apply to them.
May the road be long.. and dirty.

hahaha.... yeah, I have the same feelings with some of the Ranger bakkie brigade.... just cause the car looks good with the fancy kit on, doesn't mean it can be driven like its a monster American truck ...... the kitted out ranger is like a pimple on a horses ass compared to the Yank tanks

....... ok enough ranting.....haha

Have you seen the Patrol drivers lately... they put stupid Turbos in the vehicles and suddenly they drive like maniacs. We should all vote Nissan. :rolling:
