Summary:

Can't be beaten by any other car!

Faults:

A great car!

Nothing went wrong as I bought it in Switzerland from a person whom I knew.

General Comments:

A great car!

Had heard about it, but never owned or drove one.

It is simply great: very comfortable, fast enough, feels like a tank on road and off road.

I had a heavy accident last year (mad guy bumped into us 90km/h on cross roads, red traffic lamps etc). - so now my wife and myself feel more safe.

The only complaint - it is a bit too big for driving in the busy town (although visibility from the driver's seat is superb!), but at this moment we are in the countryside, where it is just fantastic.

Can only recommend it to everybody.

Great that they will produce it until 2015, but I have been told that the Gs produced after 1998/99 are not " the same" as they are full of electronics.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
