Happy 260k Raider!

hopefully many more to come, C46 between Oshikuku and Outapi On the way back from Oshakati Saturday night I realized that the Hilux’s odometer reached 260’000km. Would have been time to celebrate. Neither the vehicle nor the driver are drinking alcohol. Therefore we skipped the party at night. Instead the Hilux got a special treat Sunday evening from me: five liter of Toyota’s finest 75w-90 oil for the gearbox assembly.On the way back from Oshakati Saturday night I realized that the Hilux’s odometer reached 260’000km.

Although I am really happy with the Raider and did not have any major problems for the last 30’000km I drove the maintenance is time consuming and becomes more expensive the older the car gets. Biggest issue in the North is the lack of reliable mechanics: the only garage I trust is based in Ongwediva. Bringing or leaving the car there is always a hassle. Doing the maintenance on your own with a good manual is not rocked science and queuing up at Cymot has become my favorite Saturday morning activity. But the trouble comes in when you’re back at the monastery and a special tool or spare part is missing.
