  • Never use a ratchet strap to pull yourself out. Never use a ratchet strap that’s tied in a knot one end to pull yourself out. Never put a strap round the towball. Stay safe children

  • I was looking if anyone still made a rugged 4x4 anymore, but the new Hilux hasn't got me convinced. So I thought that you guys need a little EcoSport or Ka+ and try that off-road!!! Ha ha!

  • Why? You drove too fast into the H2O and killed it,maybe a course in off roading is required. The Vitara is a legend here in Austria, it keep going when everything else cries enough. I Love my Vitara. Having said all that I love the "Daddy can you help me" from your friends Dad "priceless"

  • I’m a bit late, but the capabilities of the Vitara where grossly let down by the driver, not saying any names , Alex . You should of had another crack at the puddle, at a proper speed while Andy the legend was there.. 🇦🇺🤙🏼

  • First gen Vitara are highly undervalued cars: if properly maintained they are little gems. It's now very difficult to find low mileage examples which has been treated well so if you find one, buy it. They are cool looking, it's comfortable, it's fast enough, it has an exceptional seating position with a lot of glass around (something you don't see anymore in modern cars), it's reliable and very capable in off roading. 95 to 98 cars have the two tone bodywork which look stylish and very 90s.

  • For the record there is no 'off-roading'' here as that lane is a highway = road. Off-tarmac or unpaved, yes, but not off-road. Off-roading is driving on private land, with or without permission and it's important to distinguish the two becasue off-roading without permission is illegal and a major complaint in rural areas. It often leads to lane closures and always generates lots of bad feeling. The two phrases were unhelpfully blurred by The Fast Show 20 years ago, bless them. Sadly 'Let's off-tarmac!' didn't make quite such a good catchphrase as 'Let's off-road!'. Driving un-paved roads is better known as 'Greenlaning', so maybe 'Let's greenlane!' would have done it. Or perhaps not. Stay legal folks. 👍🏾

  • Here in Australia, 4x4 country, Vitaras are Gold! even the old ones. Their worth has gone up as well as the sierra. If you spend a little on a lift and bigger tyres plus a snorkle and you will be getting further than most larger 4x4s ever will have. Most shit drivers will always blame the car 🤣 I've seen people in cheap stock 4x4 go further than poser who've spent thousands on their 4x4 just by picking their lines and knowing which speed to take. If he took it at a steady pace and created a wake so he wouldn't have flooded his engine he would've been fine.
