Dave Erickson finally goes off road....

Well hes done it at last but having lost some confidence by getting a big Toyota 4Runner 4WD stuck in the frozen pond its not quite as adventurous as I would have liked.......

Dave always does a great job. I believe he got the CX-5 through that same pond when it was mostly water rather than mud, so I bet the CX-3 could navigate it if there's enough clearance. I can certainly vouch for mine in the rutted ski resort parking lots

I can't think of many other vehicles that would have got out of that. I thought that was going to be a John Deere job!!!

I was kidding of course. That honestly was a great advertisement for Toyota, yet for some reason Toyota didn't like it and won't let him review any of their other cars according to comments haha.

I would liked a look round that 4Runner because it must have knocked it about. You could tell was crapping himself!
