just thought id let you all know that last weekend i had a little road trip out in our 50 ( not official yet but i think im naming it Rene, as in La Renault, Rene
We started in Gothenburg on the west coast of Sweden and drove for 6 - 7 hours and covered roughly 500 km (thats 310 miles to you English types), and drove to a place north of Stockholm. The next day we drove maybe 30 km or 20 miles east, grabbed a horse and then drove all the way back again.
not yet worked out an official mpg but its in the mid to high twenties - not too bad for a 3.7t horsebox.
cracking little truck really, we did the journey three weeks earlier in a cavalier, so i feared a long uncomfortable journey, but actually found it to be very comfortable, i had a pair of ear defenders that have a radio, so i was quiet happy listening to whatever musics i could find.
there were no major problems, however -
- the speedo is playing up a little (where the needle was once wobbling around the correct speed, now it propperly moving maybe +/- 10 mph) - thinking its either the speedo or possible the sender on the gearbox, as its really bad around 50mph.
- and the gearstick is making a horrible rattling noise
so any advise to solve the problems would be much appriciated.
really looking forward to getting out alot more with the truck this summer, and i hope that you lot all feel the same way.
