what a terrible car. simply the worst car imaginable. here's why (1) over heating all the time, especially when towing horse box - the only reason we had the damned thing in the 1st place (2) the hose bursting even when not towing - steam billowing out of the engine, this would happen at the first sight of traffic jam or even in mcdonalds drive thru - the frontera could not take the pressure(!) - (3) the alarm had a mind of its own and would set off like a monosyllabic albatross and I could...

I have just been given this Frontera Sport from my mother who has given up driving for health reasons. I have always maintained it and it really hs been a cherised vehicle. 33,000 miles in total and absolutely mint. Overall it has been extremely reliable and items that have been unexpectedly replaced were really due to it remaining unused for long periods of time. Starter motor, alternator, rear diff seal,discs and a couple of batteries and just recently a couple of split fuel hoses. ... (read more)

We have owned a 54 reg Fontera Sport 3.2l V6 (SWB) since new. The shocks supplied by the factory were faulty when new. The factory's inspector visited the dealer and pronounced them as ok, without knowing that we had already put them on a rig. One front shock had 25% of the damping of the other. The fault was potentially lethal. Lesson 1: If you get a Frontera don't let a Vauxhall employee anywhere near it.
This episode prompted me to buy some new Koni 4x4 adjustable shocks and, when paired... (read more)

I bought the Vauxhall Frontera Sport 2.0i as an introduction to 4x4 owndership. And I'm glad I did. For a highly competative, cheap price, I got a real 4x4 and not a Suzuki/Diahatsui toy. I found the car comfortable to drive, very good on interior space and not a financial burden to own. The well proven Vauxhall 20i engine has been highly reliable, provided sufficient power, and with the recent snow, it's been a Godsend. The boot space isn't fantastic as its very small. Its like this has... (read more)

Had discoverey and freelander before for towing horses. Discovery kept breaking down and the freelander broke and had to be scrapped after towing a lightweight horse trailer. Didnt have a lot of money saw fronterra love it goes anywhere and tows anything - not that bad on petrol but I do have another small car as well. Did have problem with alarm going off and having a mind of it's own but that is sorted. Good cheap strong cars much better than a landrover (read more)

The Vauxhall Frontera is just a really great all-rounder to be honest. The room inside is great, the practicality is good, the off road experiance is second to none and it will pull almost anything
The parts are very cheap. Very cheap reliable mechanical and electonically and cheap to run. Great to drive. (read more)

My Vauxhall Frontera is easy maintenance, less stress to drive than a car. It took me over the French Alps (deep snow, and I had to sleep in it up there). I went to maliga, via all over Spain & France. No problems at all. I've done 160,000 miles now and only been garage for MOT.
I've fitted mud tires. They was an excellent choise. Don't let garages put you of.
I also own a deisel car but will never sell my Frontera. (read more)

I have a 2.2dti RS and was in a serious accident in December 06 whilst towing my horse on the motorway 4 loose horses ran in to my Vauxhall Frontera. The car saved my life. Obviously it was a write-off. I now have another one I do like it but since the accident I'm a little nervous. I would recommend this 4x4 for towing and general traveling, I drive to Manchester every day and have had no problems. Two of my friends have bought one. Very good car, not that bad on on diesel I'd say, about... (read more)

This is my 2nd Frontera and my 3rd 4 wheel drive. I use it as a second car as it is a great work horse. I have had both this one and my previous one of road on a number of occasions and they cope excellent, you don't get many creature comforts but after all it is an outright 4X4 and not a modern SUV. There is plenty of leg room for both front and rear passengers and is a comfy enough ride. All the controls are basic so they are easy to get used to. When the rear seats are folded it has the...

Brought a 1997 model Vauxhall Frontera 2.0 Sport, 2 owners with service history and low mileage, very cheap. 75000mls on clock,excellent condition, not been used for off-road before or used for towing. I find it nice to drive and good road handling, but I find it hard to get used to the reversing as high up position and lack of viewing from rear window, apart from that I am sure I shall get used to it in time.

As stated earlier with Vauxhall Fronteras that I find irritating is the lack of after market spares other than things like service items ofcourse good stocks. But anything more than that they are impossible to buy in the after market sector like rear lights or light lenses or even bushes for example and the list goes on with that one.
But no matter where these parts are purchased it takes nothing away from the very fact the Frontera is a very underestimated 4x4.

I can highly recommend the Vauxhall Frontera, but they do drink petrol. I sold mine in April 2005 with 106,000 miles on it (S Reg and I was responsible for 60,000 of those miles over 3 years). This car can take a hammering! Being a Vauxhall, they are reliable (I have heard other people complaining about them for reliability). I didn't have this car from new, but over the 3 years I did have it, I had changed a couple of bulbs, a battery, and a couple of tyres through wear and tear (even... (read more)

My Vauxhall Frontera is the best buy I have ever made, It is perfect for all terrain operations, Great handling capabuility on road mud and snow, Good design which stands out above the rest of the 4x4s.
All spares easily accessable should any be required and very cheap compared to foreign makes and models. Mine is an N reg and has done 90,000 miles without a breakdown, uses no oil, and no leaks anywhere, I will never get rid of it for a newer model. (read more)

when i first got my Frontera sport i thought the steering felt a little "vague" to what i am used to, but this is normal for this car and believe me, a couple of drives and your used to it. They are great fun to drive, cheap to maintain and for one of the cheapest 4x4 to buy they look the best in my opinion.

As a lifelong lover of Vauxhalls, I have been in a quandary these last few years, since meeting a Farmer and settling down. The lifestyle was just too cruel for my old Cavalier, and had to sell him in the end. Have been driving an ancient Mitz Shogun for a couple of years, but the Vauxhall Frontera 2.0 Sport keeps calling my name.....
Sooooo, does the Sport come in diesel by any chance?, as I have heard the petrol versions are rather thirsty.

Bought a late `95 6 mths ago looks great but as you can tell from above there are lots of bad points to it. I use it to tow a 23ft twin axel caravan if you keep it to 60mph on m/ways it doesn`t have enough power especially going up slight inclines or overtaking HGV`s., you need to keep changeing gears, the only option is to keep the revs over 3,200 in 5th which means a juice supping 65-70mph not the safest bet. Same prob on small winding roads not enough torque. The boot is also a joke! you... (read more)

4 years ownership of 2.0 litre Sport Vauxhall Frontera. Faultlessly reliable which is something Landrover seem unable to achieve! Tows caravan with relative ease. Good offroad - as long as all 4 wheels are kept on the ground as of course no difflock or limited slip diff. Exhaust system (not cat.) perished at an unreasonably early stage. Removable moonroof and windows just a nonsense in British climate as they cannot be stored in the vehicle. The power unit is proven over millions of Company... (read more)
