    My car

    I purchased the Freelander XS manual in April and was instantly very imperssed with my purchase, I previously owned the BMW 320D and whilst they are two very different vehicles and was slightly worried that I might regret leaving the BMW quality behind, I really had no need to worry. The Freelander has a great cabin with great vision and superb driving position. I drive around 30,000 miles per year mainly on motorway with town driving at weekend, I am averaging 36.7mpg and am not a particularly economical driver. The XS is well equiped and all controls are well positioned, the bluetooth is a dream to use, the Alpine sound system is quality. I tried the X3 first but prefered the Freelander by a mile and to date have no regrets. A quality mid size 4x4 with a genuine big 4x4 feel about it with reasonable fuel economy and the luxury of an executive class car.

    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.
