I was guess, Honda Ridgelines are the best selling Japanese pickups here..

The Nissan Titan is popular too.
I always had a thing for Toyota Tacoma. I just like the design.
Get the Tundra cheapskate.

For only about $5000 more you could get a full size Toyota Tundra.
I just did a search and discovered that the Ford F-150 is considerably cheaper than both Toyota trucks..

That's why my husband's company uses them.

I could be wrong, but I think it's the cheapest to buy.
I own an F150. Total paid, including tax, was about $48,000.

Now to put Finland in perspective: I found a couple new F150 for sale there. Converting Euro's to Canadian Dollars, the Finns would pay $100,000 or more for a truck we would pay $50,000 for.

So it does seem that they tax the shit out of them!

However, most countries do this to some extent. The US applies quite a tax on foreign light trucks also. That all started when the US dumped a shitload of cheap chickens on the European market, one thing led to another, and the tax still remains...

Ever since the road maintenance got privatized, the roads have been in shitty condition..

I´m able to sustain 120km/h speed on our shitty roads without the fear of crashing.

The transmission is a bit stiff.

But my overall impression is that it is a good vehicle..
You have a van?

Is that practical in rural areas in the winter?
Its not mine. Its company property.


A 4x4 van is practical... There are 4x4 caravelles but this one was not..


I have a 4x4 Vito... But I would like to replace it with a Toyota Hiaca 4x4.
I see..

My husband drives a Ford F-150 4X4 company truck
That vehicle is a status symbol in here... After the taxes, the price goes beyond most people.

He would get the company Hilux in here.. ac_biggrin

I know.. American vehicles used to be popular in here.. But not anymore..

Taxes changed.
Most of your trucks are Japanese?
Yes.. They are popular..

Both Titan and Ridgeline have distinctly american design.. They are for the american market.

Hilux is pretty much the most popular.. The green ones are army.


Hilux, Corolla and Hiace have a great cultural significance to us.

I've moved recently, but when I still lived in Langley I would hang a heated feeder I made myself. Was well below freezing when pics below were taken...

BC cold killing hummingbirds

BURNABY, B.C. — Harsh winter weather on British Columbia’s south coast has frozen out the area’s resident hummingbirds.

The Wildlife Rescue Association says it has responded to more than 75 calls in just a few days from people who have found distressed, freezing or starving hummingbirds.

The group has rescued 10 hummingbirds and expects more help will be needed over the weekend for the birds that stay in southern B.C. year round instead of migrating south for the winter.

The centre says if people want to help, they should get additional feeders and alternate them when they freeze.

It says hummingbirds need to eat almost constantly and can consume half their weight in pure sugar every day.

The centre has received a report of a bird passing out at a feeder from the cold. If that happens, the group says people are advised to use a towel to pick up the bird, put it in a box with air holes along with the feeder, before bringing it inside to a quiet location overnight.

“Winter becomes a survival crisis as insects and nectar from flowering plants becomes depleted during freezing weather,” the group says in a news release. “Without proper care and nutrition, cold temperatures can lead to the starvation and death of many hummingbirds.”

Janelle Stephenson, the association’s hospital manager, says the danger signs to watch for in the birds include weakness, confusion, visible injuries, birds that are on the ground or are unable to fly.
