    My car

    I reckon this vehicle is one of the best bargains on the uk roads. I bought mine at 18months old for nearly half it's new price. The engine and gearbox combination is superb and when you think that it's straight out of the Mercedes ML320 at twice the price that cannot be at all bad! In fact. I went for the non-limited version because it suits our work better and with Ltd wheels and reversing aid it looks superb. It's great to be different and the Jeep seems to have so much goodwill associated with it. I am genuinely impressed with this vehicle and would recommend one to anyone who wants performance and value. The dealers are excellent; they actually seem to want your business! We have had no reliability issues other than corroded alloys all replaced under warranty. MPG for such a robust powerhouse is pretty good. We seem to average 28mpg overall, with 32mpg a high and 26mpg (towing) a low. Downsides? For us very few really. The trim and interior could be alittle fancier and the quality of plastics alittle better but for our work it's very hard wearing and the cloth trim with seat covers preferable to the leather. The grab handles on the windscreen are abit of a mistake and the tunnel does intrude on footwell space, but neither of these things are major problems. We have become huge Jeep fans and all I can say is if you are buying used, test drive a £25k Disco3 53reg first then take a 55reg £15k 3.0 CRD out and I'm sure you wouldn't want the LandRover slug at £10k more!

    My car

    I have owned my Grand for 2 months now and am thrilled with it,The Mercedes engine and box were made for this car smooth powerful and effortless torque. The fuel consumption is around 28.2 mpg and low 30,s can be achieved on a good motorway run. The interior is very smart functional and comfortable sure it,s no Range Rover but then again it,s not 50k. No problems at all at the moment and i would recommend this as a viable option to the others 4x4 on the market. I found the dealers very friendly and they wanted my business. In summary if you want a smart capable 4x4 that will wave bye bye to most other off roaders at the lights then this is it...Go for it..

    My car

    Yes, I bought the 5.7 petrol model, but i did manage to get it at just about half price brand new from the dealer as nobody would buy it. This car lives in rural France most of its life and is perfect for this environment. The half price saving will go a long way to offset the amount of petrol i now have to buy. The car will do about 250 miles on 60-65 litres of petrol, which i think is not too bad. This car is full of dogs and fishing gear and the interior is well up to the task as it is not too complicated to clean. On the road, the performance is simply astonishing for such a large car, overtaking is a breeze as the car is still in second gear at over 80mph. I plan to keep this car and convert it to lpg as it is about 40p a litre in France and this would make a very frugal run around. To sum up, the cost of purchase plus the conversion comes in at below 20K, when compared against the high twenties for a CRD (without sat nav as standard). This is a very overlooked model in the Jeep range. However i would not like to run one in the stop-start traffic in England as i think you would be lucky to get 150 miles out of a tank!!! This model has now been discontinued in England but is still available to purchase here in France, tells you something about the political status of the large 4X4 in England...

    My car

    There are very few cars that can pull a big horsebox trailer weighing more than 3tons. It is a superb tow vehicle with, lots of power & very easy to reverse.

    Superb engine and transmission. Its ability to go over our Scottish countryside and not get stuck is outstanding. Consumption is about 22-23 mpg. Long run about 26.

    It is often critiscised for not being as big as the opposition. I am an OAP and only need 2 seats, occasionally 4 but never 7! I also wanted something that was comfortable & quiet and easy to get in and out of. It scores well on all counts.

    I am old fashioned & rather like its dashboard and interior. Climate control is great - I never need alter it from Auto.

    Sat Nav is fun but difficult to set as few people I know have street numbers and I cannot find destinations easily!

    I have only had it for 7000 miles but I too have had slight problems with the electrics. Dead flat battery one morning. Suddenly locked itself, with the keys in the ignition, as I was standing beside it.

    Service & rescue from Border cars in Dumfries 1st class. (The same person also owns one of the better eating establishments in this part of the world and gives promotional rates for car purchasers!!)

    I am very pleased with both car and agent. The discount off the vehicle made even the cheapest Land Rover products look expensive.

    As somebody who used to own a pair of Bristols, it is feels rather similar - old fashioned, comfortable and goes like s*** off a shovel.
