Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Fantastic on and off the road. Not like a 4 x 4 at all when seated in the car, fantastic ride comfort.

What's it like to park?
OK but parking is not my favorite hobby.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
The fuel throttle valve failed almost straight away but was quickly fixed with a replacement car available. A couple of recalls done whilst in the garage for a service. Not a single problem with the particulate filter (all makes are having problems if cars are only used on short journeys) I travel at least 9 miles per trip. Gearbox a bit stiff at first but is really easy now 22000 miles

What's most practical about your car?
Good driving postion. Loads of power.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Stereo is good. Climate control invaluable.
