    My car

    The Range Rover Sport is such a big car. It looks big from the outside and feels big on the inside. But it doesn't feel a big elephant to drive. The big V8 means fast movements. The steering works with the suspension to give a subtle but sporty drive. The running costs for petrol isn't cheap. The cabin is full of gizmo's that are right there for you to use. The Range Rover is a fabulous sporty car. But they are expensive. So make sure you get a good one.

    My car

    I have had the car for six munths now. It's really comfortable and handles well for the sort of vehicle it is, but has any one else had scratching of the paintwork inside the small hatch opening base?

    Mine has now had this twice, and the dealers demo also has the same problem. Is this a design fault?

    My car

    I have had the Sport since September 2005. I traded 'down' from the Sport's bigger brother, but a downwards step it is not. The Sport does not have quite as much room as the Range Rover, but is by no means a small car - if size matters, go for the Discovery.

    The 2.7-litre diesel is superb, the handling is in a different class from the wallowing of the Range Rover, and the interior is just as luxurious.

    I did have a few teething problems (faulty seat belt and door handle) and recalls, but the dealer has been great.

    Land Rover has built a better car than the Range Rover and charge nearly £20,000 less for it - happy days.

    My car

    Having owned this vehicle for the past six months, I have nothing but praise for how well it fulfils its objectives.

    Yes, 'Sport' is a misnomer, but if you are seeking a Range Rover whose size is more in keeping with the Range Rover heritage, you want to drive yourself and want the best diesel engine currently on offer from Land Rover, this is the choice.

    With all options, I paid close to £47,500, and have an immensely luxurious and satisfying daily driving machine, yet with all the off-road ability afforded by the Discovery.

    To date, the reliabilty has been 100%. This is a hugely rewarding car to own, while the continuous compliments suggest there will be firm residuals for some time to come. It has the 'yearn' factor.
