Very slow as an automatic, slow to change gear, noisy as a diesel.
This is, quite positively, the worst car I have ever owned. I have just traded it in (at great expense) and could not wait to see the back of it.
The trouble is, it looks so good with the recent revamp but it handled like a barge, rode like a trampoline and bits fell off in my hands.
I could not see the tops of the dials with any amount of seat adjustment - and I am only 5ft 10in, so it's not like I am an unusual shape.
I had two fairly serious reliability issues with the turbo blowing then the central locking failing. Visibility out of the car was appalling and the performance of the supposedly impressive TD4 engine was disappointing at best.
I believe that virtually any other small Japanese 4x4 would be better than this to live with. The only thing I really like about it is the way it looks.
Park it on your drive and leave it there. Look at it every now and then.
I love this car as a whole.
It has a smoother ride than the previous model, however it has less pockets to keep bits in.
The smaller, higher seats give poorer visibility than the previous model, unless you are a Smurf.
Land Rover thinks it has resolved the engine noise at speed by making the radio volume speed-sensitive! Buy the old model - definitely more user friendly.
