1998 Vauxhall Frontera Sport 2.0 from UK and Ireland
Nice to drive after driving a car for 15 years but I will be happy to go back to a car. No room for shopping messages - have to sit on back floor.
Bad experience with dealer over services - had to have front seat covers replaced under warranty after holes appeared. This took eight months.
As a four wheel drive, nice to drive, miss the nippyness of a car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I agree entirely with the comments. My own experience is after two years of ownership.
It is slow and ponderous in town, but nippy on motorways. have never used the 4 wheel drive or needed to, bought it for the shape and room in it. However it is difficult for rear passengers to board and alight from and luggage space for the shopping is minimal. Still catch the side of my face with the top of the door as I close it (from the outside) after years of car door tops at chest height. It will be hard to part with it due to the ultra reliability even after a head gasket went!
However a small diesel car is looking like my next buy.
