Overall reliability

Solid, Quick, Reliable, Good Handling, Excellent driving position

I have owned this car for over two years, it is the petrol model, I decided on the petrol model for several reasons, tried and trusted, reliable 3.0i engine used in several of the BMW line up, I don't do that many miles so consumption isn't a problem, it is cheaper than the diesel model, and doesn't need as much servicing as a diesel.
My car has been very reliable, the only issue I had was the drivers door not opening, I researched this fault, and found it to be a door handle carrier, I bought one on eBay for £29 and fitted it myself, and I don't do this sort of thing for a living.
Driving position is very elevated, you get a great view of the road, the car handles surprisingly well for a large 4 x 4 and is very quick off the line.
I am not what you'd call a sedate driver, and most of my driving is around town, but I still get 20 mpg which I think is ok for this sort of vehicle.
I think if this car is serviced at the correct intervals you should have no problems, mine was a one owner car and was obviously well looked after, if you want one, there's nothing else like it, just make sure you get a full service history, check for any noises in the suspension, and all the electrics work and you'll be fine
