    but if you were involved in a accident, where god forbid, someone died, even if the accident wasn't your fault
    Could / would the police charge yo with manslaughter due to driving a illegal vehicle

    I don't know just a thought that crossed my mind

    Doubt it. But the insurance company will not pay up if the car is illegal.

    Insurance companies will reneg where ever they can.

    It's not worth the risk.

    No that's even worse for cars that are MA in Qld the track can only change by 25mm. I believe the Everest has now been changed to MC.

    Must have misread. Thought the ranger had the ma classification. My bad.

    Off-road guys have known about this rule for ever, it's one of the most common defects given I believe.

    I would have thought dealers would know better than this.
