Greetings! Plenty of spare parts for manual, good knowledge base with mechanics here.
Automatic is reliable, parts are here, have to look for them.
What you DO NOT WANT is a vehicle too different from the normal one here.
NO limited addition vehicles as there are NO parts.
if you plan to go up in mountains here, you NEED a turbo, as the average mini cab is NOT a hill climber.
i have automatic for 4 years, no problems IF you change fluid every two years.
Things that make it limited addition,
power windows, -no parts
EFI, no parts and no repairman.
power door locks- no parts
ECM, steering, AT modules- no parts Repair is available for P6000 on module
They are good reliable transport, at low speed, good in heavy traffic.
The AC is minimum, not made for PI heat, can be worked around , read the many post.
Ison motors have good units, service after sale, take a trusted mechanic with you, and test drive, check all functions, and avoid Rosco!
Most upset buyers bought there.
CHECK THE LTO AND MAKE SURE THE REGISTRATION IS OK!!!
