    My car

    having owned a td4 i bought a new 2.2td gs auto i am very impressed by how much more power the new model has and more refined it is average fuel economy is 30mpg which should improve once it has more miles on the clock i would recomend trying differnt dealers and not be afraid to travel as you can save a lot of money and get a great deal i traveld over 60 miles to get the best deal

    My car

    It's big, comfortable and easy to get a good driving position.

    Running costs - I get about 33-34mpg. Servicing costs: first service cost £345 for the car's first oil change and checking some belts etc - you'd be better off using an independent garage; the cost willl be better and does not affect your warranty. That's where I'll be going next time.

    The rear view is better than some I have tested - for example, the Audi A4 was poor and is poor value for money. The Freelander is the same price and better equipped. However, it can be a pig to park at times.

    My car

    I have owned the Discovery 1 and 2, the former was fantastic and never missed a beat but the latter was a disaster zone. Naturally when we looked around for a new car we did not go to Land Rover first but looked around at the alternatives. Unfortunately for Joe Public, once you've owned a Landy the alternatives are pretty boring unless you like grey or beige or bling. So far we have driven 15000 kilometres and in true Land Rover tradition things have gone wrong/were not fitted properly, the light fitting on the tow hitch did not work and had to be replaced, the car battery drained and we had to have it jump started,supposedly the key malfunctioned and did not switch everything off and now the sunroof does'nt work.My wife loves it.

    My car

    LEts start with me;I'm tall and slab sided.. rather like a lot of larger 4x4's. However, when manouvering out of my old Audi Allroad I was looking for another (having previously owned a Rangy and various other Japanese off-roaders)4 wheel drive, somehting that I could comfortably get into and feel good about driving. I had previously considered the 'old' Freelander- dismissed it through lack of interior room and reliability issues, reading up in What Car and doinf a little investigation I found my local dealer to be extremely helpful and understanding. When I couldnt find a used example I went for a factory order. Specced up with 6 speed auto, tinted glass, met paint, adaptive bi-xenons, full size spare and a very decent trade in on my old bus. The previous reviewer comments on VFM value fr money, OK listed with the extras we should be talking £34k coming into X5, Toureg and Landie country.. however, I managed to do the 'deal' at £28k! This was fantastic and I am pleased to say that I am extremely happy with the product, it is everything that the positive comments given say and to add to this I have ventured far afield onto deep snow and ice and sand and the 'trick' selector works a treat; BIG smiles all round it even saw off a couple of the pretend Lexus RX and an older Landie so Size as they say isn't everything!
