    My car

    I have owned the 2.2 RS three-door for eight months now, and I am very impressed.

    I have been a mechanic for almost ten years now, and over the time I had heard some bad feedback of the early editions, but never about the late models.

    I put the vehicle to its limits on- and off-road, and it response just the way you would expect a 4x4 to. All the power is there when you need it, with a nice touch of comfort and style to go with it.

    The only two problems I have had is the air bag light (a simple repair - just wiggle the wires under the seat) and the vacuum pipes on the gearbox stopped me from selecting four-wheel-drive, which turned out to be a pilot error!

    My overall opinion? When or if I break this one, I'll be on the look out for another. Vauxhall should continue production of it - I would not change it in a million years.

    My car

    I own a 1999 2.2 RS three-door. I have only had the motor for three months, and am very surprised with how quiet it is on the road. It is comfortable on a journey and a great all-rounder. It has plenty of passenger space, though not a lot of boot space, but that wasn't what I bought it for.

    The only fault I have found is the driver's heated mirror is not working, and the airbag warning light keeps coming on. However, a fiddle with the multi-plug under the seat makes it go out. On the whole, I am very happy with it.

    My car

    I own a Vauxhall Frontera and what a car it is. It is beaufitul, rugged, powerful, comfortable and a great family car all in one - what more can anyone ask for?

    The Frontera is a big beast which has no trouble in the fast lanes with its top speed of 119mph and 0.60 in 9.1secs and is a great off-road vehicle. If you are thinking of buying a new car, don't buy a Nissan Patrol or a VW Passat - go for the Frontera and be amazed.

    My car

    I have owned my Frontera for three years. The car has never ever let me down or cost any money, other than normal serving and MoTs. I get about 28mpg on urban roads, and 34mpg on the motorway. I'm very pleased and will buy another one.
