    My car

    I bought this 99 S reg version second hand with 33k on the clock. In the first year I had a front bearing replaced, luckily under warranty. I have driven it in most conditions and found it comfortable. It is an expensive vehicle to run as it drinks petrol at an alarming rate. This is especially noticeable in town.

    The trim is better than average as is the price however, repair costs are high due to the price of spare parts which are well above average.

    The looks of it are reasonable although, like all 4X4's it is a box on wheels.

    Space wise it is quite roomy and there is enough room for 3 adults in the back.

    Overall I have enjoyed the ride but would not have another one. They provide a comfortable ride with all the bits but the term cheap and cheerful springs to mind.
