Buying experience

Type of dealer you bought from?
Independent

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£17,500

When did you buy the car?
July 2014

Did you get a good deal and why?
The company gave me a good deal becuase I badgered him and he'd had the car for a while,.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I wanted another 4x4 with 7 seats, and this one is one of the few that can accomodate the size of my kids!

What was the dealer like?
Very very helpful and continues to be so.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Very nice, very smooth. Eats motorways for breakfast, even fully loaded. the 320 has sufficient power but I'd lvoe to try the 420 cdi! Pretty tatsy off road, both in the fields and wet as well as some healthy mud!

What's it like to park?
Not the best, for a big car with amazing engineering the mirrors are appaling. Perking sensors help and does time behind the wheel. Get one with a reverse camera if you can.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Couple of blown bulbs but I expect that. Glow plug controller went the day after I had it and the compressor is faulty. All repaired under warranty.

What's most practical about your car?
Space space and more space. Electric 3rd row seats.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The off road set up, while not as good as a Discovery 3 or 4 it's still impressive for the size of vehicle.
