    My car

    It has been said that there is no such thing as a bad car in this day and age. Whoever said that has obviously never driven a Shogun Pinin. Having looked at a number of smaller 4x4s earlier in the year I came to testdrive one of these. I was expecting a reasonably competant car, that was ok to drive. I was hugely disappointed.

    The engine is at least quite responsive and they are reasonably equipped. After that, though, I am really struggling to come up with any positives. The ride is shockingly bad by any standards. The interior feels about as well put together as an flatpack desk, and its not even very ergonomic. The gearing is a joke too - 2000 revs in top gear is reached at about 45-50mph. I'd hate to have to drive one of these on a motorway, certainly on a long journey.

    To sum up, this is probably the worst car I have ever had the misfortune of driving. My advice would be to stear well clear and buy a slightly older established 4x4.

    great car, reliable, surprisingly quick, not many about so it gets looks from Freelander and Vitara owners, pleasing to drive and to look at, shame about the dealership who charge way too much for servicing, other than that very happy.

    My car

    Being disabled I find it very easy to get in and out, plus driving it is very comfortable. I'm disappointed because it's always in full-time four-wheel drive - no option for two wheels.
