1992 Vauxhall Frontera LWB 2.4i from Spain
Robust, durable workhorse
Changed leaking and dirty radiator.
Air conditioner does not work, due to a gas leak.
No maintenance had been done at all to this vehicle in the last few years, by its previous owner.
Changed the oil (it hadn't been changed in the previous 3 years).
The gearbox was a bit hard, because it was missing almost 3 litres of gearbox oil. After refilling, it was fine.
I have had a few 4x4s in the past (Vitara, Jeep Cherokee, Asia Rocsta and Lada Niva). This one is the most comfortable one to drive on the road of them all, the Cherokee had horrible imprecise steering, offroad it's a very capable 4x4 within its limits.
Has a good load space with the rear seats folded down.
The turning circle is not so good compared to other 4x4s.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
