General Comments:

Still feels good after 71,000 miles.

The LWB model offers 7 seat accomodation and is great for the school run. The Turbo Diesel engine is superb, picking up very well between 50 and 75 mph. Don't buy a 2.4 petrol though, they are rubbish.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have the 2.4 with 130,000 kms on the clock so far.

I have travelled over some very rough terrain including semi desert, alps and and tropical northern areas (through water over 1 m deep) of Australia and I have never had problems with the power, although it needs to be driven in the right power range.

All round a great vehicle.

As a keen climber and family man, I have asked a lot from my 2.4i and as yet she has never let me down. I have owned her for just over one year and though I originally went for a 2.7 diesel because a friend owned one at that time, I have had no regrets as to my choice, and he, I believe has been quietly impressed.
