    My heart says upgrade but my head says why?


    Tough, reliable little truck! Have taken it all over VIC, SA and NSW without a hitch including a 5000k trip up the NSW Coast and back through the Great Dividing Range towing a Camper Trailer. Has been fitted with LPG (injection system) and just done 240k on the clock. Cost to run on LPG is par with a 4cyl petrol car (~$10/100km) and has all the modern features such as ABS, cruise and electric windows. Currently tossing up the option of upgrading to something newer but there's not much out there that is the same size and isn't totally plastic! Should I just get it lifted, bigger tyres/wheels and keep it for another 5 years?

    We bought bought our 99 Frontera new. It is the 3.2l V6 manual. Initially we had problems with steering, Air con, ABS, shock absorbers. Holden Didn't recognise any of them. Later models got fixes for ABS and A/C that I know about.We replaced the shocks and fitted aftermarket rear springs and put thermo fan on condenser to fix cooling of A/C. ABS unit failed at 15000kms and holden had to replace with later unit with increased skid time. Since then this car has not missed a beat. It is now at 150000kms,I have just done the water pump and soon will need to do the clutch throw out bearing as starting to get noisy.
    Nice medium sized fwd
    Heavy on fuel, poor service and backup from holden

    Hi I have a 2001 Holden Frontera I only paid $700 with 9 months rego and the only thing I replaced on it is a starter motor and an exhaust O2 sensor when you put mud tires on it it uses a bit more fuel but normal tyres not so bad taking it four-wheel driving Melbourne to and back about 4 times this car is absolutely incredible tough as nails highly recommended p.s. I literally hit everything on the road pot holes puddles this thing's unstoppable the only bad thing about it is the fuel tank is on the back passenger side in the middle would have been better under the back of the car to give it more clearance when four wheel driving
