    The market is a bit slow to catch on but mark my words watch the resale of the modern diesels plummet as people get caught with massive maintenance bills.
    Already the last of the "bugger" hiluxes are worth more than the first of the "sheep shagger"...this trend will continue throughout the brands and models.
    The difficulty with a lot of the older models is they are getting scarce. If you do get one someone else often wants to steal it.

    I went newer than I really wanted just so I could get something.

    Considered hocking everything I own to get a VDJ76. Realised potential maintenance costs if the injectors or pump went would then bankrupt me

    I got all my lock cylinders and ignition cylinder changed since the keys would fall out taking mild left turns with the originals.

    Put a new radiator in today since the old one had some holes in it.

    That wasn't just a worn key? My safari the key could be taken out about one click earlier on the ignition than you really wanted it to, took it to allied and they were able to track down the 'new' keycode for it and make a couple of fresh keys (rather than copying the worn one) that made the locks etc feel good as new.
