Title says it all.
Guess Korea lost again!
The poor thing is bleedy to death ! Two different types of fluids as well.
The Honda didn't even break into a sweat
I always love it when 4x4 drivers lose in a fight....
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.
Off topic but didnt Honda use Isuzu diesel engines in the Civic?
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
Yeh those 1.7's, not the most refined, but they were supposed to be good robust engines.
The turbo failed on the works 04 Civic diesel
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"...
