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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
