Tough rugged workhorse


Had a little surface rust that I repaired myself. The car was near the beach for the first 6 years of its life.

Other than that, very good so far.

General Comments:

This car is a Isuzu re-badged as a Holden, and is a very rugged truck style car and is a real workhorse.

The fuel economy is bad, but it has great power. I went for the auto as the manual version revs too high on the freeway and uses too much fuel.

Very happy with it, and it's my second TF R9 Rodeo. I only sold the old one because it wasn't a dual cab.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
