1994 Vauxhall Frontera 2.3 from UK and Ireland
Great Family hauler, will go for miles
When I got it serviced last year all the under carriage was rusted. I had to get that fixed. Expensive.
Both the rear outer door handles fell off and left me with a 2 door estate!
The drivers side electric window fell out of the the door when I rolled it down one summers day. Permanant air conditioning!
The Alternator belt snapped on the motorway and it almost seized my engine up.
Battery went dead at the airport. I had to get AA in the car park to re charge the Jeep.
The turbo broke all the time.
The Frontera I had was spotless, but Everything fails or breaks off eventually.
For a 1994 it has a sun roof, electric windows and it was fierce comfortable.
It is desperate going up hills, of any steepness...
Very safe though, with its steel bull bar and alarm.
It cost last year €80 per week on diesel which was terrible. The Dash is grand and very well laid out, but even for a Jeep potholes on the road WILL destroy everything that uses electricity in the car, FACT. Good on bends, but acceleration is a slow as a wet sponge. Suspension is very bouncy. I have 6 in my family and we have often fitted 7 or 8 adults into the Jeep with minimal irritation. Large boot. and the spare wheel was never used in the full 12 years!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
