bought after writing off a 3 litre shogun (don't ask). went looking for a 4wd to replace it. need it for towing a twin axle 6 berth caravan and to cope with scottish mountain roads. checked for oil leaks underneath and did 50 mile road test. tows very well did 2000 miles with caravan on back. needs more power for acceleration but once cruising sits there all day with or without caravan. average 31 mpg daily driving towing 22mpg. cannot get car to engage 4wd but has coped with 6" of snow and black ice very well. this maybe due to the mud and snow fitted before my ownership. rear lights needed to be rewired as dirt from rear wheels cake them. failed mot on drivers side head light. the lens was for left hand drive and not right hand drive !!!!!! only minus point is strong cross winds inexcess of 60 mph make driving interesting.
