MeMe no good reviews, no suitable for off road, not suitable to tow boats or horse trailers in the mud and people who baught it are not happy with it.

I would advise that who ever wants to get a Porche pram to consider getting something like this instead 1978 and still going strong

Maybe I'm being oversensitive .....

but as I work in the automotive industry can I just say: -

- The Porsche Cayenne is selling very well (especially in the USA – enough said!)

- Aston Martin can sell all the cars they can make (so it must work!)

- The Land Rover Freelander is, well, a Land Rover, and I used to work for them so it’s gotta be good (!)

- The Range Rover is a classic – any vintage (and I used to work on Range Rover development)

- The Skoda has become a surprisingly good car since Volkswagen took them over, so much so that it’s now taking sales off other VW products! (pity it still says Skoda!)

- It’s equally surprising that Bentley still produce good cars after Volkswagen took them over! (then again, have you seen the new Continental GT?!!)

Now, whoever designed the rear end of the new Renault Megane Saloon needs some serious help!

Got a Nissan Navara Outlaw - it was cheaper than the Mitsubishi at the time and just as good! (IMHO)

Hey Andy, you may........

..........know my pal Tom Reedy who was on the design team of the Freelander a few years back. He now works in the U.S and did in fact assist in the design of the Hummer and the new H2. Do you know him ? Or is that a little akin to meeting a dumb ass yank who says, "hey you'll know my great aunt Edith who lives in Glasgow" just because you're from the U.K and they think we all know eachother.

My Dream Car

Its one of those new Land Rover Wolfs the Army have.

The Porsche Cayanne must be one of the worst 4 X 4s. It has no work credentials at all. Its just a Porsche beefed up.

The best 4 X 4 are all Land Rovers when they work.

The trouble is getting one that actually works all the time.
