    My car

    I am a Jeep fan traditionally and have had, over the last 10 years, five Jeeps including a 1942 Willys WW2 version. My Father, who was a Paratrooper on D-Day had his life saved by a Jeep driving him to a medical unit after he had been wounded. From this you can see I am a real Jeep Fan but I also like Land Rovers, especially the new Freelander. I have owned the current model since last September and it has been excellent from day one. Absolutely trouble free. Like most 4X4`s my wife really loves it also. Although I agree with most of the other reviewers that the interior is not up to the standards of its rivals it is very practical and everything works well, especially Sat Nav which is an extra. On long runs the fuel consumption is not bad providing that you drive the vehicle sensibly. We have just been on holiday in the Jeep in Northern France and it has been excellent all round and was admired by many of the Locals. The amazing aspect of the vehicle is its 4x4 aspect. I drove a version of it at Tong,a 4x4 course in Leeds, and it was absolutely incredible, even driving through a small lake and almost vertically, up muddy slopes.

    My car

    We bought a new 3.0 V6 CRD Overland 5DR in May of this year.Its the first time we have owned a 4 x 4.The drive is smooth and it feels safe,secure,comfortable and powerful.The level of equipment in the Overlander is second to none.We also included a dvd player,tow bar and privacy glass.The only short comimg against its rivals is the quality of the interior.If you are looking for ultimate quality then we found the BMW Mercedes and Range Rover to be head and shoulders above the Jeep.But that comes at a price.If you have around 30k to spend and you want a good alround 4 x 4 with all the kit,Then this vehicle ticks all the boxes.Just remeber its probably £10000 to £20000 cheaper than a equilavent specification BMW,Merc or Range Rover and that is refelected in the overall quality of the interior. Fuel consumption seems reasonable on a good run and we average about 30 miles to the gallon,but around town it seems very thirsty.Its an eye catching vehicle,it looks quality and imposing. You will get noticed in this vehicle,and there doesnt seem to be loads of them on the road,unlike the BMW x5 and x3.Just enjoy it and dont be afraid to take it off road.

    My car

    Much preferred the interior of the previous model, especially the driver's seat which was much more comfortable. I am 6' and 12 stone, but my knees catch against the memory setting switch on the right hand door and the sharp dashboard side edge on the left. It would help if there was more range of adjustment on the steeering wheel, especially in and out. Some good features like the tyre pressure display and my car has Sat-Nav which is very good. Overall, technically impressive, I just wished it was more comfortable to drive.

    My car

    Have only had the car for a week and am very impressed. Bought it as an ex-demonstrator and it has everything on it including sat nav,rear dvd player,bluetooth hands-free kit and the Startech(a Brabus subsidiary) SD6 engine chip.This makes an excellent engine into really powerful beast.BHP increases to 262 @ 4000rpm and torque goes up to an amazing 430 lb/ft @ 1600-4000rpm! 0-60mph is around 8seconds. Fuel comsumption is around the published figures, which is quite acceptable for a big,powerful engine. The accelaration at overtaking speeds is excellent. The engine remapping does not invalidate the warranty and did not affect the insurance.

    It tows my caravan with ease and is very steady on the road at all speeds. Have not tried it off-road yet but i am sure that with its pedigree all will be well.

    This vehicle is a great improvement on previous models and represents good value for money against the opposition..
