We had a long think about whom to send to the launch of the new @fordsouthafrica Kuga. We eventually settled on Amanda (yes, this dude is called Amanda) who owns the current generation Ford Kuga and who's had to go through the experience of the recall and had to grapple with all the issues associated with that. Amanda will look at the new Kuga and let you know how it stacks up against the old one. We'd also be interested to see if his perceptions are moved at all. It's going to be an interesting journey for both Amanda and the Kuga. Feel free to send us your questions about the current generation Kuga and the new one. We'll be more than happy to assist. On another (but related) note, you might be wondering how Amanda ended up with the Kuga. About 4 years ago, Amanda went to further his studies in the States and fell in love with the Ford Escape (as the Kuga is known in the US) and the potential for adventure it offered. Other than the recall issues, the Kuga has lived up to expectation and we've had many good road trips with it, including trips to Swaziland and Mozambique.
