    Hi,
    From what I've seen its a love hate relationship!

    Only had mine for about 8 weeks, mines a 2005 Elite Auto, so far 'touch wood' I love it, gives me 28mpg running around, had it up to 48mpg on a motorway run.

    Spoke to the local dealer, he reckons they rarely get them in at their dealership for problems, whereas the 1.9 they're changing EGR valves pretty much 3-4 a week. He reckons its mainly because the 3.0 is an Isuzu engine, supposed to be a solid engine.

    Same as everything else though, this site mainly has people taking about problems with their cars, you never get people saying they love theirs and it never goes wrong lol

    I had a couple of small issues with mine, which were fixed with a software update on the ECU for the engine and gearbox.

    Main thing is everyone says not to bother tuning the engines, they don't like it

    No doubt everyone will come and disagree with me now

    had mine for 32K miles now done 76K remapped at 60K with no problems, had minor issues (ecu upgrade at dealers before remap, an exhaust gasket blew, was blowing before the remap it just finished it off 6 hour work and £32 in parts not all needed), so nothing major to report, always puts a smile on my face, usually does 34 to 42 mpg, depends on the smile factor, loves front tyres about every 10K, rears at 15 to 20K, buy and enjoy
