Had this car 18 months now and having a bit of a love/hate relationship with it. Positives: Great off road car, massively comfortable, loads of room with the third row seats down, smooth ride, great value for money and fast considering the weight of thing! In fact it's pretty fast anyway, but it does have a 3 ltr V6 Merc engine upfront. The steering is also very light which is nice because it's not hard too drive, but it lacks feel which is a strange feeling in a car of this size. Negatives: insane running costs, not even reaching 30 mpg, third row seats only OK for children for a very short trip, cabin qaulity isn't great, can't put all the seats down in it which is impracticle and doesn't have as much space internally as it appears from the outside. All the included extras are great, Sat Nav actually works, great air con, great sea warmers, DVD player is a nice extra. I espeically like all the sunroofs which make it nice to drive. (Although rear and front parking sensors are useless!) Still, I'm getting rid of this car at the end of the year because running costs have become unbearable. The diesel cost are simply too high, and when added to by road tax and the congestion charge, this car is completely impracticle. It's being replace by an Audi A4 Cabrio, and something tells me I wont be missing it!
