OK, so the fuel consumption is poor but what the hell - it's fun to drive.
For the money, it must be the fastest 4x4 in terms of 0-60mph.
I love the car, before I got it (it's a company car) I had a Discovery, Trooper and a Frontera V6 on a week's test drive each and I by far prefer the Jeep.
For the price, I think it has the best spec and performance. Only the Frontera came close and who wants to drive a Vauxhall!
If you are looking to spend around £21,000 on an off-roader then I would 100% recommend the Jeep. I use it for general driving, towing a horse box with 2 horses (total weight 2+ tonnes) and I go fun off-roading and it's a great, fun car!
I have just bought the jeep after having a Rav4 for a few years.
I am finding the Jeep a lot slower and more noisy - definitely a diesel. The Rav was very quiet and more like driving a car. What I find with the jeep is that it feels like it will do the job, ie towing or pulling off road. The Rav was not really an off-road car in the same sense.
The jeep is very comfy to drive, although it is a very heavy car. I didn't like it at first but am getting used to it, I also find it quite heavy on fuel although the gears are lot lower so it goes easier and quicker into 5th gear.
The spec inside is good and practical. It has quite a lot of boot room and the back seats fold down to give lots of space. It has a good heater and the windows and mirrors are heated so no problems first thing in a morning. I go off road every day with it to the horses and although it has taken me a time to get used to the 'chunk' of it, I am satisfied over all.
