    Ford recalled about 20,000 Rangers and Everests last year to fix the issue with the 10 speed. As of June 2020 they were saying they had dealt with more than 60%. Seems to me that in fact they were accepting responsibility. All cars have issues. Just google HiLux DPF.
    Still, I reckon you'll be happy with the Subi.

    Was talking about the 6 speed trans - they moved away from it to the 10 speed and left customers high and dry that had issues with these - we've had heaps crap themselves - even when they were in warranty and the lease company told us they have never been covered and Ford refused to admit there was an issue with them.

    Daughter bought a Ranger and learnt a few things.
    The 3.2 can have an oil leak issue at the back of the engine or from the timing chain cover.
    I think the 10-speed auto is used with the 2.0 turbo while the 6 speed comes with the 3.2.

    Also, I can't remember if you mentioned the Mazda CX-5, but it's comparable to some other vehicles you've listed. I'd favour an AWD TD. Excellent quality, drives nicely, very popular.
