I Love Her — It's a great car - love it, but very expensive to fix if anything goes wrong with it - I'm torn between getting something else & just driving her until she just won't go any further & hoping it's later rather than sooner. We shall see.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: fun, pretty, AWD

Cons: EXPENSIVE

Cheap, Slow Transport! — This is a slow 4x4 but it's been extremely reliable with loads of space to chuck the welly boots and shotgun! Plus it's slowed me down from my Alfa Romeo days!! I'm going to mount a bullbar on the front so I can collect all the cyclist without lights every evening!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It'll do for now!

Cons: Not fast enough!

Land Rover Freelander Mk1 — This was one of the first Freelanders on the road in June 1998. I had the 3 door 'softback' I had always wanted a land rover and oved owing it but being the first of a new batch it was beset by problems. This combined with the fact that the 'softback' was the most complicated convertible roof i've ever seen meant it was a bit difficult to live with. It was surprisingly good off-road and I tested this on several occasions

Pros: Good off-road

Cons: Poor mechanical build quality

Great Car, Off Road And On — People don't buy these cars for the speed they go. Being the earlier natural aspirated diesel, the Freelanders performance is dismal, but so what? It can do what we ask of it, and look pretty cool at the same time. It'll happily cruise along the motorway at 70mph however. Off road, it's pretty impressive. The only complaint is the poor ground clearance. You soon get used to the sound of rocks banging underneath. It'll go further than you'd expect though. It's quite small inside for a 4x4. The back seats are cramped and the boot isn't the biggest. The seats are supportive though. The engine is bulletproof and will go on forever. Shame the same can't be said for the rest of the car. Be prepared to spend a couple of grand every year just to get it through the MOT. Avoid the 1.8 K-series- the head gaskets go like they're going out of fashion.

Pros: Cool image, impressive off road

Cons: Small, unimpressive ground clearance, unreliable, slow

Fantastic Style And Feel, Shame About The Oily Bits! — Felt like a really solid car. Good style, and road holding for an SUV. Suprisingly good in the mud. Engine and mechanics let the car down (Poor design)

Pros: Looks and drove well

Cons: Naff oily bits!
