When the weather is bad or something gos wrong, the Frontera is as good as you'll need.

As for the Senator, I have had them from new in 1988 and sold my last in 2010. Might get another, though, as they really are great cars.

The Frontera is a much under rated vehicle. It is based on very capable Isuzu running gear,after all.

The prejudice against decent cars often comes from peopel who have never owned one or driven one. I have always said that the best cars on the road aren't the fastest, quietest, best looking, most comfy or most economical - they are the cars that suit you best.

So, for me (and Dusan/Alucard) an MGF is always going to be a no no as we can't get in one.

My three Fronteras were sound cars - cheap as chips (£600 to £1000 each), tough and basic, simple, no frills and could get up my snowy bank when needed. They also kept us able to get to the supermarket in deep snow and -18 degrees temperatures two years ago, despite a frozen water pump. Similarly, my mates R reg Explorer worked every day in the tough weather we had two years ago and our local handyman's 6th or 7th or 8th LR Discovery was stuck on his drive, unable to start - £38000 well spent? ha bleedin' ha (he's now got one of those Far Eastern twin cab pick up jobbies and no longer buys LR after years of putting up with leaks and failures).

"The Frontera is a much under rated vehicle. It is based on very capable Isuzu running gear,after all."

I never knew that. A local plant hire company some years ago had an Isuzu, worked it very hard and swore that it was one of the best vehicles they had ever bought. Very tough and reliable.
