Foton Tunland recalled for jack labelling fix

The Foton Tunland ute has joined Holden’s Captiva SUVs in being recalled this week for a seemingly innocuous but potentially dangerous issue. Unlike the Captiva, however, which was recalled for a jack label that incorrectly defines a “safe working load”, the Tunland’s recall is due to a jack label that does not properly match the wording required by the the mandatory standard for vehicle jacks, AS/NZS 2693:2007...

Hi all, purchased a brand new Tunland in Adelaide 4 weeks ago. Drove it home to Sydney over 2 days. Has 5000k on the clock now. Blown away at what I have acquired with this ute.

2014 Foton Tunland Tl (4x4) Review

I purchased a 2014 Foton Tunland in November 2014. So far I have put nearly 40K on the car. It has a lift kit, All Terrain Tyres, Tow Bar, Bull Bar, driving lights and a soft cover. I had a few minor warranty issues to start with including a missing air vent and the TPMS was deactivated. The Engine is amazing it sounds great, is powerful and averages around 9...

2015 Foton Tunland (4x4) Review

Well surprised is the best way to describe the Foton Tunland 4x4 dual cab. I purchased the vehicle new thinking how bad could they really be, not the best way to buy a vehicle but anyway, I am still surprised. The vehicle has been great so far. I have done over 20,000km in just over four months so you could call it accelerated testing...
