That kinda puts it all in context doesn't it? Hightower, how much wonga are you talking about spending. ('fr instance new shape Cherokee a very different beast from the old boxy XJ). For a few thou' I'd buy a 4.0L petrol job. Yes bloody thirsty but more reliable than diesel and gotta be available much cheaper say 2-4k for a decent reliable one? (Its been a while since I've been in the Uk used car market I know.) Disco of similar price would be fraught with mechanical/electrical breakdown risk.

Alan, I hadn't a specific car lined up. I was just brousing the Auto Trader and was looking at several different 4x4's. It's just that the price of certain 4x4's are cheaper than others and that appeals to me as I've not a terriffic amount to spend but really need something bigger than my Kia as I'm looking to cover a greater milage with my family this year.

I might just keep the Kia and get a larger family car instead.

why a suv 4x4 andy

why not have a look at the 4x4 estate market

skoda
audi

if its miles and comfort estate would be good and 4x4 for that beach or slip
let face it most large 4x4 have road tyre fitted so i can,t see why a estate
4x4 can,t do the job we know you been looking

Have a look at

http://www.brightwellsauctions.co.uk.../fpvehicle.htm

They have a great website which lists what the 4x4s actually SELL for - note the LandRovers go for OVER book value but bargains can be had on other makes.

Most of the complaints with the Jeep are with the VM diesels - they were crap in RangeRovers as well. The petrol ones are cheap cos they are so thirsty!!!

If you want a 2nd vehicle just for towing get a petrol one - far cheaper than diesels. Get one over 10 yrs old and you get classic insurance as well.

Buy an old Range Rover classic v8 and if you get the right one it will still be worth what you paid for it a few years later - it may even go up!!!

Don't get me started on Delica's please......Had a real nice one lined up, bought it home to show the missus and needless to say I've stopped looking at them now .

Have to be a little more civilised.

That Skoda on Ebay, I was looking at that one and another that sold a week ago, but went for 6000.

You should have taken a Series III landrover home first, then the Delica. Might be a cheap black disco TDI 200 going cheap at work.
