Guide to 4WD ad­ven­tures

OST 4x4 ute driv­ers are afraid to go off road.

That’s the feed­back from Mahin­dra dealers, dis­trib­u­tors of the Pik-Up util­ity ve­hi­cle.

They re­veal that 4x4 ute driv­ers buy ve­hi­cles mainly for work pur­poses but have strong as­pi­ra­tions to go ad­ven­ture driv­ing – but fear gets the bet­ter of them.

A sur­vey by MAA of driv­ers across the coun­try sup­ported the no­tion with a 32 per cent ma­jor­ity say­ing that they are in­ter­ested in 4x4 tour­ing, but have never done any­thing about it.

And 7.2 per cent said that they go tour­ing with their friends in their 4x4, rather than brav­ing it in a ve­hi­cle they own.

While the rest of the re­spon­dents were ei­ther al­ready ven­tur­ing out, or had no in­ter­est in the sport at all.

As a re­sult of the tour and in­sight the re­search pro­vided, MAA has de­vel­oped a 4WD guide that po­ten­tial ad­ven­ture driv­ers can go through with dealers if 4x4 tour­ing is of in­ter­est.

Prepa­ra­tion, what to take, and gen­eral safety are just some of the fac­tors cov­ered so that buy­ers can feel con­fi­dent when hit­ting the road on that ul­ti­mate dream track.

The guide also can be down­loaded from the Mahin­dra web­site at www.mahin­drapikup.com.au by click­ing on Cus­tomer Care.
