    My car

    The driving position is superb - in auto, it's very relaxed to drive. The seven seats are easy to use. The engine is very smooth for a diesel and now freeing up sensors front and rear and reverse dipping mirrors make it very easy to park.

    The sat-nav is superb, the cabin well fitted with leather and heated seats, climate control and a six-disc CD in the dash. Choose the 19-inch wheels and privacy glass - looks great in silver. I have a good dealer experience so far and would recommend.

    The best car that I have ever driven, and I have driven a many other cars. I'm saving to get one. It has the wow factor.

    My car

    I have had this car for two weeks and love it to bits but I am fast going off the dealership from where I bought it.

    After two weeks the battery started leaking acid quite heavily down one side of the engine compartment. I rushed it straight back where they washed off the acid and changed the battery but have not repaired the damaged paintwork.

    I have tried to reject this car but the dealership will not accept my rejection. There is still evident acid on the wiring loom, which is visible when the battery cover is removed.

    I made over 10 phone calls to the management and got one call back. I am extremely annoyed, to say the least.

    My car

    What a fantastic car! I actually got an HSE. The driving and dynamics are top notch, BUT it is let down by a lot of electrical faults. I have had three electronic failures of the suspension and parking brake.

    Land Rover has not yet fixed this, and are struggling with it. The dealer has been only mediocre with its service, only returning my calls when I threatened them. I do hope that the bugs can be solved quickly.

    All UK diesel models have been fitted with a Webasto Fuel Burning Pre-Heater. There is a setting in the drivers SETTINGS menu to enable a timed pre-heat or cool of the cabin. This is great on a cold morning - BUT it does not work unless you leave the radio on! Land Rover is reportedly NOT going to fix it, but is going to remove the feature. This will not be acceptable, I hope they do the right thing and fix the feature.
