Default Algys Autos, would you use them?

I am looking to upgrade my 1998 SSRX to a newer model of Surf, have any of you used Algys Autos or do you have other suggestions on how i acquire a younger model?

I am not sure what models are now imported into the UK, anyone help on that front too?

Loadsa questions, but if you guys don't know who will eh!!

Thanks in advance of your vast knowledge..................... ........

Default algys ok

hello
i used algys autos 6 years ago when i got my 2nd gen, they where ok with no problem and i met algy also at there other place in cyprus.

only problems are that you can not see the vehicle until it comes into there garage here and by that time you have paid your money, i am not saying that you are taking a risk because they have been around a long time ,,you just dont really see what you buy until its here.

my 3rd generation surf i bought here private ,,so from experience you can get a real good buy cheaper here and of course you can see it.

and forget the blurb about sat nav unless you are ok with directions to down town tokyo.

good luck in your search but its not hard to find good buys

Thanks peeps, i think i might just keep an eye open for one already imported, what is the youngest gen 3 i am likely to pick up in the UK then?

The gen 4 does not look like a proper off road 4x4 to me, anyone any thoughts on this, i use mine off road a lot for shooting etc.?

cheers

iain

I'd always be afraid, that the vehicle I bought from algys autos, would be described as a 1999 3rd gen, with silver over blue paint, and leather interior...


...but would end up as a pickup with a bed full of beer cans.
