Changed the auto for a manual because I will be doing more towing. What a difference!, the lower gearing (approx 18mph per thousand in 5th)suits the engine characteristics much better and the vehicle feels much more responsive in all conditions.The feather light clutch and gear change are a pleasure to use, and I am averaging 40-43mpg.I Towed the Teardrop to the lake district last month and got 36mpg.Although I liked the auto for town use I am really pleased with the manual and look forward to putting some serious miles on it.
I went and got this we jimny and i myself think it firstclass and so do other people in my family and friends. i have had many cars before and love this car. My mum and dad have the new freelander 2 and have taking it off road and got it stuck and had to pull it out with my new we jimny. i myself are friends with the landrover off roading club and they took my we jimny off road and say it would do beter than the range rover dico2 and 3 and even the freelander 2. its up with the defender. a world of its own. on road it good to it has hard ley any body roll to the old ones. i get nealy get 39mpg and its so smooth and quite but boot room is small and leg room for people in the back is small to. i love it got it there 2weeks ago. and u get leather in it to wich what car dose not say..... u get alot with it.. frist class we 4x4. i would say try 0ne your self and see what u think
If you want perfect comfort and luxury, go spend 70 grand on a range rover top end, but please don't be cross when I pass you stuck in the middle of a field.
This is a "what it says on the tin" type of car, its a cheap 4X4 that can give the big guys a run for their money off road, I tried in vane, but could NEVER get it stuck, narrow country lanes that would rip the mirros off a 4litre monster, this can glide up them, deep ruts....eats them for breakfast and still wants more. Town driving is quite good, the only bad thing i could say about it is the boot space, I am now selling this car to go a little bit bigger to the grand vitara, BUT, I am very saddened to do so, i love this car to bits, its a lot of fun to drive, take it down the beach, wherever, you wont regret buying this if you want a cheap 4X4 that can go places!
If you are over 5 ft 8 in tall, and not slim, look elsewhere. I gather off road it is pretty unstoppable. But its untennable on road, its awful to drive, notchy gearbox, cart sprung, it makes my old and long gone Land Rover series 2a, of 1970 vintage seem like a luxury car. If you must buy one, dont be foolish, wait for the bought from new owner to get fed up, and buy it second hand. I would expect that there are small people who love it to bits, especially if their own driving ability is limited. But there are far better cars available, for much less money. Dont be tempted.
