    My car

    I have just purchased a month old car and saved a fortune on the new price which makes this excellent vehicle even better. The car is responsive, smooth and powerful, an absolute joy to drive. After test driving other 4x4s I can not understand the Whatcar Reviews as the Jeep is as good, if not better to drive than the rivals and far better value.

    The MPG could be better but I knew to expect te low 20's to mid 20's which is exactly what it does. The car only has 1400 miles on the clock, consequently, economy may improve with a few more miles under the belt.

    My car

    This car is a great all rounder and I'm constantly suprised at the low ratings given by What Car. Still maybe it's because it hasn't got a Land Rover badge. Mine is a 4.7 Limited and I've now had the LPG conversion done to help with the fuel cost which were not too bad for a 4.7 at 19 - 24 mpg. What we want to see is the price of LPG go down at the same rate petrol has. We're paying 49p a litre now and it should be 42 - 44p. It's a solid car on road and the seats are really comfortable and the heated seats are awesome, stereo is total class.

    My car

    I found a 3yr old 5.7 Hemi with only 9000k miles, in excellent condition. Included in the purchase price was a LPG conversion which works extremely well. I was not particuarly looking for a 5.7 but with the previous owner taking the depreciation from new of £23,000 I couldn't let it slip through my fingers after the test drive. It's great to drive, very quiet and although the car press express a dislike for the interor;My family think its very luxurious. I am using it daily and will be towing a caravan, I know the cost per mile is high in comparison to a 'family' saloon but I am prepared to overlook this because the Grand Cherokee is a fantastic place to be on a journey, my first 4x4 and I look forward to the comute to and from work, which can't be bad a thing, thankyou my Grand Cherokee 5.7 Hemi Limited.

    My car

    Hi, like many others I love my Jeep (my first 4x4), but she will be going shortly for my 7 seater. I have never understood why this car doesn't get better "official" reviews the owners love them! I've had mine for 40,000 miles in 2 1/2 years, from new and nothing has ever gone wrong, it may have some cheap plastics in places but at least it's solidly screwed together, (take note Landrover) no rattles to date and a very good reliable solid car.

    MPG is good for a big 4x4, I get low/mid 20’s round town and in the low 30's on the motorway. It's amazingly refined car with a cracking engine, it drives much better than nearly all of the 7 seater/small MPV's that I’ve been testing for it's replacement.

    It's also a very good motorway cruiser, excellent ride and very quiet. I still have the original tyres on! It's never required an oil top up (other than when serviced) even the water bottle for the screen wash holds enough to last between servicing. Servicing costs less than you’d think, a 3 series BMW costs more! It's fast, practical & survived my kids without showing any signs of wear. If anyone is thinking of buying a 4x4 you must test drive this car.
