    2003 Land Rover Discovery - SE

    Pros: The visibility from the driver's seat.

    Cons: The gas mileage compared the my last car (Saturn L1 - 24 mpg).

    Advice: Enjoy

    The Discovery handles well in traffic and is well behaved in a moderate crosswind while on the interstate. It has power to merge into the interstate traffic from a short entrance ramp and handles well on the turns. The seats are very comfortable and the head/leg room is more than generous.

    2003 BMW X5 - 3.0i (M5)

    Pros: Y Spoke Wheels / Overall clean look

    Cons: Firm ride

    Advice: You want to play...You have to pay! it anit cheap

    From a 1996 Ford Tauras, to a 2003 X.5 3.0 (added on the 4.4 y spoke wheels seperately, $2,400). Quick and Classiy! Blends nicely into the North Scottsdale, all that, crowd...

    2002 Land Rover Freelander - SE

    Pros: Off road ability

    Cons: Where do I start?

    Advice: Be careful...

    Sorry folks...I thought I had found the vehicle for me, but I have been burdened with so many problems, that I'm seriously considering getting rid of my Freelander. Where do I start...2 burnt headlamps, new transmission, new air fan, squeeky steering wheel and worn out brakes (all in a year and a half). The service in Calgary is great, but the product is very questionable. I can't say it's worth the price. I'm in Canada and don't have a US zip code.

    2003 Land Rover Freelander - S 4dr

    Pros: Sportronic Shifting Mode

    Cons: Lack of Sunroof (I only have the base model, though)

    Advice: If you need to get through the urban grind Monday through Friday, yet still want to tear up the hills on the weekend...buy the Freelander.

    I am a student at UCLA, so the funds situation is usually bleak (I'm talking about Ramen noodles for dinner 4 out of 7 nights a week). So, imagine my surprise when I found that I could get a Land Rover for under 30K. The Freelander makes me feel like a high roller, without having the 401K and trust funds to back up the assumption. The sport shifting on my Freelander S is BUTTERY smooth, and a MAJOR improvement over what I was driving before...a bare bones Toyota Tacoma. The power windows and cruise control are certainly appreciated. This SUV is quick, despite weighing in at almost 2.5 tons. BUY THIS VEHICLE!!! You won't regret it.

    2003 BMW X5 - 3.0i (M5)

    Pros: auto-standard transmission

    Cons: ugly standard wheels

    Advice: get the sport package (much nicer wheels) for 3.0 or 4.4 models

    Went from a 540i with 4.4 litre 6-speed manual to an X5 with a 3.0 6 cylinder automatic and missed the extra giddy-up at first, but now find 3.0 sufficient and am saving untold $$ on speeding tickets. Rides and accelerates beautifully for a 'truck.'
