I've seen the error of my ways. 2 months ago I was shopping for a replacement to my Triton. I wanted a dual cab, diesel 4wd ute. Now Ford have dropped the ball here a bit, the courier (ie Mazda Bravo) is crap so after test driving everything I ordered a new Rodeo. Now, 2 months and 10,000 km on and problems already. It's making bugger all boost and driving like a slug and there is oil all along the pipe between the turbo and intake. The RACV bloke that Holden roadside assist sent out said it had done a turbo, logical I thought. Took it to Holden this morning and they said the turbo was fine and it was probably tappet adjustment. I mean, it's flat out at 70km/hr, not tappets me thinks. They then said take it away and book it in when they weren't so busy. I refused so it's still there, who knows for how long. I also made them give me a loaner car - an ED falcon can you believe - lol. It's the first holden I have ever owned and will be the last. Oh yeah, the dealer also said there have only been two rodeos do turbos, the RACV guy said he personally had been to see a heap like mine. I'll let you know what they do next.
