I'm guessing you were on Efate as I doubt you would have seen anything other than Landcruiser or Hilux utes on the other islands. I spent some time hiking on Santo (Espiritu Santo) some years ago and apart from trucks and earthmoving equipment, Landcruiser and Hilux utes were used for everything. Even the taxis are utes and passengers ride in the back sitting on the luggage.

I love my Forester but I doubt it would survive the roads (or the lack of them) on Santo. I remember one trip up the bed of the Jordan River in the back of a Hilux ute over boulders as big as your head. It's not Forester territory.
