I have the Toyota Rav 4 and I love it 2 years now and no problems at all plenty of room and a reasonable price!

Same here.
Been looking at a similar thing myself, SUV of some sort, lookinga t maybe a 2014/2015 or so.
driven the sportage,Qashqai,rav4 & hyundi ix35 . personally prefer the qashqai or the rave 4. the rav 4 would be my pick, but a good bit pricier for the top spec ones.

Anyone any experience of getting one of these brought over from england to the north?
seem a good bit cheaper over there.
I can only please one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow doesn't look good either

The Cherokee (and most jeeps) get triaged for durability and repairs needed down the line.

You are going to by a 4x4 based on an event thst happens once every 10 years or so?

Kia Sorrento and Mitsubishi outlander are reasonable and can be got in 4x4. There not for farmers but might be a decent compromise.

Fella in work has one. I've had a few spins in it and its a nice car with plenty of kit in it for the dough.
