    My car

    Very good load carrier, and reasonable comfort. Some long journeys can be a little tiresome. Very well spec'd car, little extra accessories needed.

    Excellent 4x4 for slippery conditions such as winter weather.

    A little on the thirsty side and does use a little oil. Excellent lights and excellent driving position / vision. Poor cabin storage though.

    Three useful power (cigar) outlets in boot area, centre console and in central storage box.

    Great engine, with very useful selectable high / low ratio gearbox, needed on some steep hills.

    It's a brilliant car all round, and I would buy another.

    My car

    Good effort, took it to the Scottish Highlands recently (Glen Ogil) and thrashed it on and off road - great.

    An ugly thing but very willing!
