    My car

    first of all I'd like to state that i needed this car for its space and practicality. It does not disappoint my 3 year old and two teens can all sit in comfort and the boot is huge. The extra two seats although not always used are good to have and are comfortable as well.

    The car is great to drive though. Gibraltar has many narrow streets but it is easy to squeeze through tight gaps and judge distances. My main disappointment is lack of shove, especially when pulling out at junctions or accelerating from low speeds. My previous car was a VW Bora V6 and this was a case of sacrificing power for practicality. However once up to speed it will cruise all day and 140 km/h is very comfortable.

    I saved five grand in the list price as this was an x company car belonging to the show room owner. The car was 2 months old and had only 2800km on the odometer! It isn't the cheapest car to run but that depends on how its driven, at the speed limit it really is not that bad. I do not see good mpg purely due to the fact that my driving leans towards the aggressive.

    Over all a great family car, oh and its great in the rough too! my only real complaint is the squealing breaks! it comes and goes and I've yet to receive a proper explanation. Would i recommend it? If you have a large family and need the space i believe that no car is better!

    My car

    This is the best car I have ever owned. It is highly capable both on and off road. It feels like an executive car and has the quality to match. The auto gearbox is fantastic and easily as good as the BMW's I have owned.

    I have only had a couple of minor problems, which have all be dealt with by the dealer quickly.

    I would buy another one tomorrow and can't think of a better car.

    My car

    I have owned my Disco for 18months now and although I have had a few minor faults with it my dealership has been really efficient and fixed them all promptly. Overall though the car has been very reliable and has loads of space for a family of 5. I really cannot think of a better family 4x4 on the market at the moment and would recommend it to anyone.
