Over the hills and far far away.

What a brilliant little 4x4 our Frontera RS Sport is.

We loaded it up to the gunnels with everything we needed to take over to Bulgaria, including a Merry Tiller rotarvator, huge flat screen TV.....then plonked a roof box on it (run out of room inside) and filled that up as well.

Two days later we had covered the 1800 or so miles to get to our house over there and it never missed a beat. It cruised along at 70 mph all day and night with only stops for fuel, driver change's and customs posts. It used a total of £200 in diesel and one litre of oil (which is very good according to the book).....seriously good stuff for a sixteen year old vehicle. :D :D :D :D

The only thing i can't get used to is sitting on the floor when driving (way too tall for the veh') even with the seat wound right up.....easy enough fix now it's over there, turn four bobbins up and fit longer bolts to the seat rails.

That's honestly the only thing that needs any kind of "fixing", good stuff indeed.
