A quality, reliable 4x4
The Air Conditioning compressor failed at about 60,000 miles.
The Power steering lines wore through due to a rubbing hose.
This has been a great car and hasn't been as expensive to run as I thought it might be. Having said that, the air conditioning is expensive if it goes, not much change from 1000.00 if it does.
A recent run up to Scotland and back gave me about 32 miles to the gallon which was fine as I wasn't slow.
The car gets used frequently as a tow car with a 1100 Kg caravan and it's like driving normally, the car just doesn't struggle at all.
I don't find the instrument panel at all bad, several reviewers have commented that the instruments are very American looking, but they work fine, are clear and seem accurate so what more do you need?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
