1997 Lotus Bighorn - one NZ owner, seven seater.

Purchased December 2002 ex-Japan from Autowerks in Greenlane. Serviced every 6-months by the same garage since 2004. Since 2002 the Auto has been flushed twice and the cam belt replaced for the second time at 167000km (preventative maintenance). Other than new brake pads, skimming the disks, fitting a new battery and 2 new sets of tyres no other mechanical repairs have been required.

The tow bar was fitted after purchase, but the truck has never towed a boat or a caravan nor has it been on a beach. Rarely been off-road! Only used the tow bar to take trailer loads of rubbish to the transfer station.

The car alarm was installed in 2002 and works very well – but did purchase two new remotes recently.

Exterior exceptional for age - the interior is even beater.

The most recent set of new Falken tyres were fitted less than 10,000km’s ago and still look near new. The spare is an original Goodyear but legal. The 4 wheels and spare are all original Isuzu alloy wheels. These tyres are better than the Hankooks I had previously – the vehicle handles extremely well.

Despite her age her turbo can push her along and since 2002 I still get 480 km for a tank of diesel in the city and around 700km away from city driving on trips south. Usually the first away at the traffic lights.

All the standard extras still work very well:
- Front seat heaters
- Overdrive
- Economy / Power
- All instruments
- Rear window heater
- Air Conditioning
- Intercooled turbo

The engine, auto and differentials--no oil leaks.

Work required - need check the right stereo speaker cable.

A wonderful vehicle to drive and has enjoyed the family and the respective grand parents but we are down to two and in recent years with work and offshore business travel it is time to downsize.

There is no but now price – please don’t ask!

I have also listed this vehicle elsewhere and reserve the right to withdraw from this Auction.
