Did you buy this car new or used?


How much did you pay? (including all on-road costs)


What were your needs when you bought this car? Has it fulfilled those needs?

I was looking for a four wheel drive, with all wheel drive that could be used on tarmac, a towing vehicle, and with 7 seats for transporting the family. The Everest delivered and more on all fronts

What were your initial thoughts about the car? Tell us why it appealed to you.

The Sport in Black, with blacked out trim looks stunning! The V6 diesel in the Everest is very smooth, even power delivery, and is exceptional quiet in the cabin.

What have you discovered since owning the car?

The on-road handling is fantastic, even through New Zealand's wind country roads. The lane keep assist can be aggressive. The touch screen has times when it lags. The fuel economy in stop start traffic is not great.

What do you like/dislike about the car?

I love the way the truck looks, drives really nicely, especially on longer journeys. The practicality, includin 7 seats, effortless towing, and robust interior are great.

Why would/wouldn't you buy it again?

The Everest has delivered what was expected, but has exceeded expectations. In the category there are no other choices offer the same as the Everest for a similar price.
