2007-reg Diesel, Owner for 3 to 5 years

The following went wrong: 2 rear coil springs broke, rear pdc sensors replaced twice, rear wiper motor replaced, crank shaft vibration damper replaced, two front rims replaced after paint blistering, heated mirrors replaced , new carpet after rear washer tube under driver seat burst. Cheap to run, parts are not expensive and service is also not expensive.

57-reg Diesel, Owner for Less than a year

Great drive, very sporty, good quality and fantastic engineering, best 4 wheel drive system I have experienced so far, a fantastic all wheather car with loads of space and low fuel consumption (600 Miles on a tank easy)

Cost: 5/5
2006-reg Diesel, Owner for 1 to 3 years

Zero issues over three years of ownership and 50,000 miles. For the performance of the 3.0 engine, and the size of this huge family car, 34.4 mpg is brilliant. servicing and upkeep costs have been fair too.

Cost: 5/5
2012-reg Diesel, Owner for less than a year

Nothing gone wrong yet but ist only 6000 miles old. 44 mpg is better than the expected from surveys which suggest 42.5 average (I have had a high of 47mpg on a couple of runs to london (m40).

Car is newly in my possession. however history of the car suggests no major faults. Road tax is very expensive, but the cost of the purchase of the car 2nd hand was very cheap in comparison.

A great car, on and off-road. More than enough gripoff road with the right wheels. A little clunky gearbox but other than that 3.0 diesel is great.
