    My car

    The car is excellent. My car is the Overland 5.7 and the equipment levels are excellent - basically everything is included.

    The sat-nav is the best I have used. The car's handling is unbelievable and enjoyable.

    This is certainly the best car I have owned and great value, as I bought it when it was six months old from a dealer.

    My car

    I have owned this car for three months now and covered 5000 miles. I have to say I think its fantastic.

    It returns economy of 30mpg going to Devon this Christmas at speeds up to 90mph. I have owned a BMW X5 previously, but for the same specification, it was £15,000 more, as the model I bought, the Overland, has absolutely everything on it.

    The steering is not quite as positive as X5, which was very good, but on the Overland model which has bigger wheels, it has a fair European feel.

    With a diesel remap, the engine is more responsive and fuel economy is about 10% better (it's a Mercedes diesel).

    Most importantly, as the main user, my wife loves it. Why pay £15,000 more for an X5?

    My car

    Having searched and tried all the alternatives, we settled on a Grand Cherokee 3.0 CRD which we took delivery of in April 2006.

    To date we have not been disappointed - we tow a 1300kg caravan which the GC pulls without any trouble, and returns around 21mpg whilst towing. Solo consumption is approximately 22mpg around town and on a solo run with cruise control at 65mph 31mpg.

    Performance is awesome - even towing, it accelerates without any effort. The only downside is Jeep's parts department - it was off the road for two weeks waiting for a replacement turbo and five weeks waiting for a breather pipe and valve.

    This is our first Jeep and we would definitely get another.

    Recently it had to go to the body shop and we were given a Discovery TDV6 for two weeks, which gave us time to compare the two. Whilst the Discovery was nice, it felt big and bulky compared to the Grand Cherokee, and it is slower pulling away with pronounced turbo lag, something which you don't get on the Jeep.

    My car

    I have owned this new car for three weeks now and up untill a week ago I was very impressed by its performance and its comfort.

    But after two weeks it wouldn't start. I called Jeep Recovery service and they came to pick it up, replace the battery and bring it home all in four hours. I wasn't that annoyed, i've had it happen to a Volkswagen Polo over ten years ago!

    But then, yet again I came out in the morning to take my children to school and the battery was dead. I had not left any devices on like the radio or heated seats but it was still dead.

    I will warn you this, however good the Jeep may be on the outside it will let you down when you own it. Especially as it only returns 18mpg for a diesel! And I don't thrash it!

    Stick with the Landrover Discovery!
