08-reg Diesel, Owner for 1 to 3 years

It does what it says on the tin, good ride but bland, extremely economic 32+mpg, nothing grates but nothing excites. The onboard computer is too complex and small things like automatic clock updates and boot opening & lift are not included. Not as much umph as my old Merc S500 but that only did 12mpg on a good day, less than 5mpg on 10 mile runs!

Cost: 5/5
W-reg Petrol, Owner for 3 to 5 years

Brilliant ; I have converted it to LPG and have covered about 75,000 miles over 3 years and averaged about 48 mpg ( pound forpound ) with well over 55 mpg on a run, and have seen 68 mpg on a long gentle run. All this from a 3.7 litre V8 Quattro.....
Would certainly buy another and have that converted to LPG as well.

Cost: 5/5
2010-reg Diesel, Owner for 1 to 3 years

Since purchase in may 2011, I have had no mechanical problems. the car is not even due for a serice yet. For a large capacity engine, heavy car with 4 wheel drive, I averaged almost 40mpg on a recent trip from scotland to france and can exceed 30mpg on all but around town journeys. no mechanical costs yet.

Cost: 5/5
2006-reg Diesel, Owner for more than 5 years

In 6 years the car has only had one minor electrical fault, corrected by the dealer at no cost. Overall for a car of this size the costs are very reasonable, particularly, servicing and general maintenance are quite cheap.

Cost: 5/5
2008-reg Diesel, Owner for 1 to 3 years

There are problems on a regular frequency with the brakes, (on average there is a brake malfunction every 6 months).. Poor mileage returns and high fuel costs make this an expensive vehicle to run.

2012-reg Diesel, Owner for less than a year

Electronics are sometimes not instant, there is a delay with most things??. Front pirelli tyres are just about gone at 10,000 miles !!car really struggles to achieve over 35 mpg.

Cost: 2/5
1999-reg Petrol, Owner for 3 to 5 years

It just works, apart from a fuel pump I have only ever changed "service parts". Heavy on fuel around town, parts are pricy but the car is unusual.

Cost: 3/5

This has to be one of the most underated cars on the road today! I would have another one tomorrow except I will not need it!
