The dash on the new model is horrible and switches are tiny. The Sat Nav is dated and it has plastic with artificial stitching. Gauges are too busy and hard to read.
Manual gearbox has a 1st gear from hell and the auto has a selector gate from a 1957 Chevvy.... too much as to make me keep my Mk7.
New ones have rust seeping at the seams. The guy that is doing mine does inside and outside the box sections. He stops rust dead even some near basket cases. Clean, remove, treat, prime, paint Dinitrol. He is OCD about each job and it takes 6-10 days to do right. www.rustproofingautocare.com
I hummed a bit when I took new one for a test drive. I thought it a bit plasticky also but it drove well and still felt like a Hilux underneath all the gloss so bit the bullet anyway. New one arrives in Jan, but not in that ghastly orange. Oddly the demo was that colour and it looks as bad in the flesh!
