    Big trucks behind me have never worried me in a 4 even on the Hay Plains, Hume Hwy etc. Then again as 4's only come with a manual trans I suppose it could be a problem with a truck behind you and not knowing how to drive a manual car. :-)

    The Renault range of trucks has been on sale in AUS for a few years now, however many are badged as Macks.

    blush I was talking more about the size difference between the renault 4 and this huge Magnum. I didnt say anything about driving a manual or anything. That had nothing to do with anything... black_ey

    Oh, I was thinking that you may have been driving that hypothetical Renault 4.

    Anyway to show how size matters. The 4 is taller than a 19 by about 15cm (depending on torsion bar settings). So if being low was the criteria for your comparison, the Magnum would intimidate the 19 to a greater extent.
