If you want to go green laneing you need the Freelander, if you want a big smile on your face and probably the most able road car you could buy, you got the right one! I am sure you will enjoy your beast when it arrives. How about some more details 2x4, 4x4, colour, how long is the wait, and best of all whatextras?

Its the 4WD! I live on a farm and have always had 4WD (currently Jeep Patriot) and it is black! It is a used car (3 years old) so the extras were already on it - digital sound system, bluetooth etc....heard to many mechanical complaints about freelander but the yeti seems so reliable, sturdy spacious and the main selling point for me was the removable back seats (as a florist I need the space for large flowers boxes etc) i am very excited

Welcome to the forum, and to yeti ownership. You're right in thinking that the yeti is reliable, the Auto Express has voted it one of the most reliable, and also voted it Car of the year a couple of years ago. Last week they did a test on the face lifted model and their comment was " Yeti 4x4, still a top choice, off road and on" and, "The Yeti majors on value for money, practicality and - in 4x4 guise - serious off-road ability" Think that about sums it up!! ENJOY

Better value than a Freelander, but not cheaper! I've heard and seen some horror stories about Land Rover Freelander reliability but none about the Yeti.

Even Clarkson rated the Yeti on Top Gear, which proves what we owners already knew. The Yeti IS great car.

Coming home from our local Sainsbury's the other day there was a Yeti queuing behind me at a roundabout. No acknowledgement from the male driver to my wave, but guess what. He had a beard.

Is it because the yeti is so much fun that they never waste time shaving when they can be out in their yeti?

It is said that over time dog owners begin to take on the appearance of their pet, so it logically follows that Yeti owners will do likewise.It is certainly nice to know that there are other bearded Yeti owners around ... though if your sighting happens to be in Lanarkshire it may well have been me! Apologies for not waving back if it was.

2 years and over 40,000 miles shared with my Black 170 4x4 Elegance and it still feels like a first date every time I get behind the wheel.Edited by: Mountain Goat

Epicyclic - your beard is very distinguished - you lead the way and others will follow!DEAR PROBLEM PAGE
There don't seem many YETIS in my part of Buckinghamshire but for those that I have seen, the beard count is as high as 50% so far. When my Yeti(evenually) arrives Ifear total rejection round here from other Yeti owners, so as i am rather shy & retiring, I may wellkeep a stick on beard in the car - just in case, will this help me?Do you think that I would look even more authentic if I had some eyebrows like The Hoods as well?
