Hi all, Does anyone drive a jeep? Any recommendations?

I drive a Qashqai, all the fun and space of a jeep without big engines and high tax. Sold my beloved MINI to get it, but I love it now.

Thanks MrsAH - how much is the road tax on that?

I have a 1.6 petrol, so the tax is €450 a year. There is a 1.5 diesel and the tax on that is €156 a year.

Thanks for that. I haven't looked at the Qashqai yet. Is it nippy enough? I like to have a bit of power :)

Yip, a good bit of poke. Not as much as my MINI but the Qashqai is larger. Enjoying driving it though. I looked a few different jeeps (Rav4 etc) and the Qashqai was my favorite.

Had you an engine size in mind?

Do you need 4 wd? Will it ever be used to tow/offroad etc or is it more for just road driving?

An automatic 3ltr Touareg V6 - Very powerful and so comfortable, makes you feel very safe when driving/passenger but the tax is crazy and its expensive to run!
