Newbie from South Africa

Hi everybody and tx for the oppertunity to be part of such a great page. I use to pop in but could never reply to posts etc. So finally I joined. I drive a Jeep Grand Cherokee with Mercedez 3.0 Crd engine and well, most of the car is Mercedez. In my yard use to be a Unimog 404 petrol to tow a 21 feet jeboat. I sold it some time ago, no more use for it. I was also the proud owner of an 500 SEC lefthandrive. Not legal to import lefthandrives into South Africa anymore, so we are limited to some models. Then the odd A160. Gearbox problem nightmare and after Mercedes Fixed it, it broke down in less than 20 miles and metal fatigue ( they say it is a A160 problem) was to blame. I don't believe it, so I will follow ip on the issue.

I have never had any problems with Mercedez vehicles. Some minor issues with the 500SEC but I could manage.

The Mog was a toy, in tje bush and out, throught rivers etc. It was always fun.

Yet again thanks for the oppertunity.
