Newbie from Bristol

Postby sharon1971 on Tue Sep 09, 2014 8:09 am

Hi everyone, I am extreamly new to the world of Fronteras, but theres always been some sort of 4x4 in the family, I have a 2.2 Limited in silver. Never driven a diesel before, nor looked after one. So there will be many questions I'll need to ask, some might seem silly, but some will hopefully keep my Fronty alive!!!! :)

Hi, what type of 4x4's are you used to? Important thing to remember is the Fronteras don't have a centre differential and are not full-time 4x4's......just in case you are more accustomed to LandRovers.
