    My car

    Having only had it for 9 months, I can certainly say this is one of the best on road - off road vehicles going.

    The air suspension makes it waddle round corners but, apart from that, it is a good ride.

    The only down side is that if the engines are not looked after you will suffer on the MPG at first. I struggled to get 15mpg but with a little love and attention I have improved that no end.

    All in all, a very good car.

    My car

    I bought this car at 2.5 years old with 65k miles primarily for towing heavy trailers in poor conditions.

    I didn't feel the diesel was up to the job - hence the 4.6-litre V8. I've fitted a sequential LPG injection system, which has dropped the fuel costs to the equivalent of high 30s (I have a 40 miles each way daily commute) and reduced the environmental impact to boot.

    It's fantastic to drive, very comfortable and is stunning when towing heavy trailers in poor conditions. I've had a couple of coolant leak problems, but so long as main dealers are avoided, parts and servicing has been quite cheap - which ws a pleasant suprise!

    Overall it's surpassed my expectations.

    My car

    THE CAR ITSELF IS VERY COMFORTABLE TO DRIVE AND LEAVES YOU WITH A SILLY GRIN ON YOUR FACE AT MOST TIMES.

    HOWEVER THE AIR SUSPENSION IS A NIGHTMARE AND, ALTHOUGH THE QUALITY OF THE MATERIALS USED IS EXCELLENT, THERE ARE MANY RATTLES AND SQUEAKS.

    ALSO WE FIND THE SEAT BELTS ARE TOO SHORT TO BE PRACTICABLE FOR A PREGNANT LADY

    I STILL LIKE DRIVING IT THOUGH!

    My car

    The pre '02 Range Rover is overall a superb value luxury 4 x 4 - if bought used, not new!

    The depreciation in the first couple of years is huge, but this means you can pick up a bargain, even from Land Rover dealers who will offer warranties.

    I've had some aircon problems, covered by warranty, but otherwise trouble free.

    The power to weight ratio (equivalent to an elastic band powering a jumbo jet) means that the engine has to work very, very hard and so economy suffers. It also means it's a bit of a snail regarding acceleration, but it will happily cruise at high speeds - eventually!

    If you can live without the acceleration, find a low mileage one with warranty and it will take some beating!
