So, a spin of the wheel came up with three separate models last week.

In the black corner: A Nissan Pathfinder. A capable 7 seater with an
old style 2WD/4WD selector. Deceptively small looking
in a paring garage. No gadgets what-so-ever but a throaty V6 that did
shift quite well. Adequate.

In the white corner a Dodge Durango another V6 but this time
with an incomprehensible dash touchscreen. Liked the rear lights
which go across the entire width of the "trunk". Ok.


In the blue corner a 2WD Toyota RAV 4, with an inadequate engine
of indeterminate size and an old style auto gear selector. Meh.

All better than the "Renault" Duster we got in South Africa last month. Terrible, terrible car and we had it for a week. Also had a 500L for a few days which we all loved. Very impressed by that. Finally we had quite possibly the most boring and forgetful car of all time.....Toyota Mobilo. Or was it a Honda.....not sure now , it was that terrible.

I travel a lot in South Africa and when I rent cars I always try to get a Fiesta, such a nice car to drive and be in. The worst I've had so far is the Chevrolet Cruze, what an utterly crap car. And to think that Barra woman at GM reckons it is a head-on competitor to the Astra and Focus! She needs to get out more. Other particular low points include the Chevrolet Spark and the Suzuki Swift.
