I stupidly sold my faithful Isuzu Trooper and bought a Td5 18 months ago.
Whilst with any 2nd hand car you can expect to encounter problems - I was not ready for this !
So far here are are some of the problems we have /are experiencing ......
1) The back brake discs went - Just as we were on our way in the morning to take my friend to the airport as she was emigrating to Australia.
2)The alarm persistantly started going off - so much so I was scared to lock it and thought I would rather take a chance that no one would steal it
3) When it rains the sun roof leaks UNBELIEVEABLY -It pours in.
4)The wind caught the back door (our fault) - Door had to be replaced
5)Steering started feeling dodgy - New power steering replaced
6)Radiator went - new one replaced
7)We were advised the turbo on its way out - too bad it can wait!
8)Key snapped in the ignition - was quite pleased tho as you could still put other half in and it would work - but then ...
9)...The immobiliser went so car undriveable and had to be towed away for 2nd time (first when on way to take mate to airport)
10)Went to put a small amount of turf in the boot and the car went down and didn't pump back up until engine on - hole in the suspension
11) Brake lights permanently on
12)Back seats in boot now won't go into the sitting position
13)ahhh the latest one the gear stick a bit sticky but clutch seems fine will wait and see as in garage again at the mo.
Wish I'd steered well clear of theses amazingly crap vehicles - believe the rumors they are total rubbish - avoid like the plague and buy Japanese!!!!!!!!!!!
