1999 Opel Frontera


Nice looking comfortable car


The car when driving over 50 miles an hour kept loosing power. The small engine icon keept lighting up on the display panel. The car has been into the Opel garage 3 times for the same problem. Then after going 5 miles smoke was billowing from the exhaust and the car lost all power. There was no steam from the engine and the display panel failed to light up any problem. We have now got a bill for 4.000 euros as the garage is saying the water pipe is split and has resulted in us needing a new engine. The dealer we bought it from is refusing to honor our warranty as he says the water pipe is not a mechanical part and it is negligence on our part. Can anyone please advise on this.

General Comments:

The car has plenty of room inside and is very comfortable to drive.

However there is not a lot of all round visibility.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
