    My farming friend has three of them--they are disgustingly reliable! Like any cabover, they ride a lot like an army tank and are ugly as all sin, but one cannot argue with the record.

    Here in North America, I heard they completely redesigned them this year though, doing away with the cab-overs and going to a standard. Haven't seen them nor heard about flaws or reliability record. Seemed like a really bad idea to me, the COE design was one of the reasons they were appealing (more useable space).
