1993 Isuzu Bighorn Lotus 3.1td
Part of the family
Collapsed near side front wheel bearing, which happened to me in the outside lane of the motorway (felt like a blowout without a drop in height). Pulled onto hard shoulder, wheel very hot and melted bearing grease coming through lug nuts, had to replace complete front hub, bearings virtually welded to brake disc. Found a second hand one through www.carsparefinder.co.uk (very good service)
The car is very easy to live with, have towed trailers and caravans with ease, and even pulled the odd tree down with it.
Used daily for last four years, and still feels fresh to drive. A very good family "bus" for the family and dog.
Converted to vegetable oil, which has caused no issues, only plus points :- environment, running costs, quietness.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
