    My car

    I'VE ONLY HAD THE CAR 200 MILES AND IT HAS BEEN IN THE GARAGE FOR A WEEK. IT'S HAD NUMEROUS FAULTS - NOT WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT FOR £32,000.

    VERY FRUSTRATING.

    My car

    I have suffered with three cars in 14 months and 14,000 miles, not one of which had its suspension working reliably. Other problems have been mainly electrical or ECU-based.

    Finally, Land Rover refunded me.

    They are nice to drive and more fuel- and space-efficient than most of their competitors, but in my experience no more reliable than a chocolate firegaurd at an open fire convention.

    I would not recommend anyone puts their own money into one of these.

    My car

    Having test driven a variety of vehicles, I've just ordered this model. I can see why it won the What Car? awards.

    Although imposingly massive from the outside, driving is a positive pleasure, with an excellent turning circle, comfortable seats, very good visibility, responsive handling and a ride quality that rivals the best that BMW and Volvo can manage between them.

    The Diesel engine is quiet and powerful, and feels a lot faster than its 0-60 time would suggest. The loadspace is simply breathtaking, with the ability to fold down all but two of the seven seats into a totally flat floor surface. All this combined with extraordinary offroading abilities make it a sure-fire winner.

    My car

    Awful.

    I have taken this car for a long, long test drive and I was pleased with it - until I saw the price and the running costs. I was horrifed and left the showroom straight away.

    You really have to be rich to own this car.
