It seems that you either love or hate the Territory and no inbetween
We have a Territory (the older 2004 model) and I love it. Like so many others have said it is a little thirsty but the positives outweigh the negatives to me. It drives really well, doesn't feel like im driving a 4wd, has heaps of space, plenty of anchor points, 10 thousand cup holders We previously had a 2007 Commodore Omega but when I got pregnant with out 3rd we decided that a little more space would be nice. We only had a budget of 20 thousand and the Territory was pretty much the newest 7 seater we could get within our price range. If I had unlimited money I would love a prado but the Territory works well for us.

A little quote from that section: "Every full moon we have a bonfire of the last month's legal threats and our lawyers, who eat broken glass and howl at the moon, are under strict instructions to defend any proceedings with the utmost vigour."
From The Dog & Lemon Guide: 2010 Edition
Please don't take it personally when we say that a car is unreliable, but facts are facts: generally an older (and many new) British cars are hopelessly unreliable. So are most other European cars including German models. Traditionally, Australian-built cars like the Ford Falcon and Holden Commodore have been among the least reliable on the road. That's the conclusion of a survey of nearly 27,000 Australian car owners. Jap cars are consistently more reliable, which doesn't mean that if you buy a Jap car it won't break down, it's just less likely to, that's all. So please don't send us abusive letters because you loved your old Ford Falcon or Mitsubishi Magna and don't like us rubbishing it. We're just doing our job.

Having never heard of The Dog and Lemon Guide, I've been enjoying a bit of Google research! It seems to be a bit of a contentious publication

Ha ha! I just googled the Dog & Lemon Guide too, and it's very interesting that one of the first few search results is rubbishing the book, and the website is an Audi one. Pretty much all Audis are rated as "Dodgy" for reliability (though many are rated "Excellent" for safety), and the "Overall Rating" for over half the Audis are "Not Recommended" (2 out of 5 stars).
