If you have the money to spare and are looking for a car that has Looks - Style - Comfort - Reliability and a real name that's had a good following over the years, I would highly recommend the Land rover Discovery.
The biggest asset at the moment is that the price throughout the range has been reduced dramatically due to the recent changes in importation and dealership, and if you shop around you really can pick up an excellent deal, Even Secondhand.
With the TD5 ( Turbo Diesel ), you get real quality even with the earlier models. The only drawback with the earlier ones is that the ride tends to be a bit bumpy, but having said that the early models are more economical to run in general averaging 30 - 35 MPG.
The more recent models ( I.E 1997 Onward ) usually run at around 25 - 30 MPG, But obviously they are much more luxurious, In particular the SE model. The SE come's with numerous home comforts and gadgets that make driving a snap, and if you want great in car audio you don't have to look any further as they are fitted with a 6CD changer with 4 way speaker system and sub woofer as standard. Again with the SE you get heated seating / mirrors, fully adjustable seating ( Electronically ) excellent sound proofing, air conditioning and ton's more.
If you opt for an earlier model or even one of the more basic of the range available, you can have some or all of the extra's fitted at a reasonable cost, which brings me to another point. When purchasing it's best to use a real Land rover dealer that has been established for a good few years, the main reason being you will be easily able to negotiate very good discounts and various extras for FREE.
With my last one i was able to get an alarm / immobiliser, side steps, roof bars and a full years worth of roadside help and the first service totally free with the exception of parts. Add to this a top rate guarantee and you have great value all round car with the added bonus of 7 seats in most models, matching most people carriers.
Finally history has proved itself over an over again. Where ever there is an accident with a Land rover, it has always held it's own as far as safety goes simply because it is such a strong well built vehicle, and again most models are equipped with quality air bags and very good restraints. Ask a dealer for a free test drive, You won't be disappointed.
Happy hunting..
