An amazing country car but terrible motorway car

I bought a second hand duster ex taxi 4x4 in cork with 100,000km onclock , was cheapest 2016 4x4 for sale in ireland at time. I have done 40,000 km in it since a mix of motorway and backroads and some offroad.
I live in very rural area approximately 4 miles before the road becomes 2 lane and work takes me to some of the least populated places in ireland so this car is joy approximately half the time.It has handled 2 ft flash floods ,ice on 25 degree inclinces with no bother.
Offroad its as capable as the family landcrusier but I have not towed a tractor with yet for a full comparison.
It is an incredibly comfortable car on the backroads compared to audis mazda etc I have owned in past
Motorway is terrible but better then a van , not a patch on last car a 15 yr old a6 with 250miles on it
Mpg has collasped from over 50mpg to 40mpg when all tires changed
No mechanical failures as yet except a tire pressure sensor.
The type of roads I drive normally kill the suspension and shocks in normal cars and then kill the car with mechanical failuresnotable exception being early 2000 Hyundai
I heartly recomend it for country living at a discount.
