Hello all .
can any one tell me what they think of a 2001 holden Jackaroo 3ltr turbo diesel as a 4x4 pro's and con's
Thank you steve


Mmmm...Can't give you the pro's and cons but a mate of mine got rid of his a while back and he's a diesel mech and he said he wouldn't go near them again.

toyinau they have well documented probs with injectors i think , but depends on how well they have been serviced. check with the jackaroo club they have all the imfo you will need . I had one for yrs and was a bloody good car very under rated ,if getting at a good price and has a good service history i wouldn't write it off . Google it as well explains it all there . Good luck .
I love mine and would buy another without thinking about it..there is a lot of chatter about the 3.0TD engine but I have been told by a few mechanics that it is because it was so advanced for their time most mechanics didn't/don't have the skill set to work them out. They are great to drive, almost like driving a car. There are recommendations to swap the engine to the 2.8TD when if it blows up. I know that in NZ with all the imports that they are commonly getting well over 400k kms out of the 3.1TD Jacks/bighorn/lizzards which is also from the same stable.
