Julien Jarmoszko is 28 and has a wish list for his next car. Firstly, he needs something to cope with hiking expeditions to the Highlands in winter. It must also seat four comfortably, have decent boot space, and have a quality finish inside. Julien does a modest 5,000 miles a year, but wants cruise control, good safety features, and would love a V6 engine or something with a bit of character. He has £20,000 to spend and resale value is not an issue.

Alan Corsie wants to replace his old Honda CRV. On family trips he has three teenage children in the back, and is struggling to find any alternatives that have a decent middle seat and a flat rear floor without a transmission tunnel. The vehicle, preferably with a diesel engine, must have some 4x4 capability for occasional driving on rough tracks and over fields. Reliability is important too, and his budget is £15,000-£20,000.

Jacqueline Tompkins returns to Car Choice after a change of circumstances – her partner Nicholas is now not able to drive. So the choice of car will be Jacqueline's, because she will be the sole driver for the foreseeable future. She is looking at the Toyota RAV4, but would consider any other small 4x4. The budget is £5,000 and the only other requirement is that the car should have four doors.

Land Rover's second-generation Freelander has seen just two main changes since it was introduced in 2007; the first is that the petrol model, with its Volvo-derived 3.2 litre six-cylinder engine appears at some stage to have been dropped from the range in the UK market, a change which, as far as I can tell, has never been officially announced. The second change came last year with the adoption of stop-start technology for the diesel model, which is now rebadged TD4_e.

As one of the few people in this country to have driven a Hummer, I do feel a little bit sorry to see them go. I'm all in favour of choice and automotive variety – why not? – and there really was nothing quite as outrageous as a Hummer. The big one was a glorious piece of kit: big, bad and dangerous for any planet to know. It was defiant, indefensible, a symbol of excess.

The new Skoda Yeti. It's not remotely abominable and it's certainly not made of snow. Nor does it have a big footprint – whether you're talking about the carbon variety or the amount of space it takes up on the road.

Our friend Simon, a man with a scout leader's zest for life, suggested several months ago that along with his family and two other sets of friends we might like to spend the last weekend of the school holidays canoeing a 25-mile stretch of the River Wye, with an overnight stay under canvas in a field belonging to his Uncle Chuff, who farms 400 acres not far from Hay. We agreed readily enough even though we're not natural campers, in fact we've only done it once before en famille, when I disgraced myself by sleeping soundly through the children's nocturnal toilet requests, and Jane disgraced herself by burning a perfect circle in our friends' groundsheet with the cafetiere. Of course, the very word cafetiere gives away our stature as middle-class johnnies-come-lately to the world of camping. This time we took a kilim rug.
