Would you buy this car again? YES
We bought the car from our local dealer, very unhelpful with the suspension when it sagged due to the bullbar being fitted… We ended up replacing it ourselves… We also asked for a courtesy car due to living over an hour away from the dealer, (and wife heavily pregnant at the time), and was declined until more firm words were spoken.
Since all of that we now take it too another local dealer who have been wonderful, helping solve the many d-rating (limp mode) issues, (lets face it too many to count), also have fixed up the broken diesel line… Never once have they hesitated supplying a courtesy car and have always been really happy to help and squeeze our car in to help with issues.
The car is great on fuel when not towing but once something goes onto the towball fuel consumption increases and the running heat comes up to half… It was terrible 4x4ing, but having said that it has not been back out since the d-rating issue was fixed up so can’t guarantee it wont perform better next time… nice ride for our family of 7.
