    The poor thing is bleedy to death ! Two different types of fluids as well.

    The Honda didn't even break into a sweat :Grin:

    I got hit in a works van by an Astra, its bonnet was V shaped with fluid on the ground, and yet not a mark on my vehicle.

    My old man's Vauxhall Frontera (chassis and design by Honda) had a Renault Clio accordion itself on the rear tow bar. Crumbled completely and written off, my old man's didn't even have a mark on the tow bar.

    Your sure? I think they were an Isuzu design and product rebadged as Vaxuhall and Honda. Much like the Montero and trooper.

    I'm quite sure the Frontera was originally designed as the "Honda Jazz" in partizan with Isuzu who sold it as the "Isuzu MU", the plans were then licensed further them to Vauxhall and Chevrolet. I read into it all a year or so back when I spotted what I considered to be a "Vauxhall Frontera Sport" with a "Honda Jazz" badge on it, turned out it was a rare JDM import.

    They did, infact prior to the I-CDTI, Isuzu supplied all Honda's diesel engines - hence why you won't find any left on the road :Rolf:

    Yeh those 1.7's, not the most refined, but they were supposed to be good robust engines.

    Turbo failures not unkown with a lot of makes.
    They require sympathetic owners, getting an engine properly warm before applying too much right foot, plus allowing hot oil to drop from turbo bearings at the end of a run. Most works motors don't get that kind of sympathy IMHO, with many just saying "not my car/van"...
