    Land Rover

    All things aside the Rover will go anywhere.
    Its easy to tow
    its great in snow
    It can take on a train
    its great at the beach
    alright for golf
    Its easy to park and the queen has one.
    That's just my view

    As a mechanic, I can appreciate, that the brakes must be in good condition, to hold on that slope,
    I have a love hate affair with land-rovers, pretty much every time, I have been in one, or used one, I have been on an adventure, just sometimes, its the getting there, that's the adventure with them,

    There really are some Landiephobics around.
    I've owned four - SWB Series 3 all original, LWB Stage 1 V8, Series 1 Discovery V8, and a Range Rover Classic.
    In all those vehicles, I only ever had an alternator fail in the Disco, and a diff fail in the RR (at 167,000 miles!)

    My RR was my club 4x4. It was standard bar a 50mm lift and and ARB locker in the rear diff as a result of the diff failure above. That truck was a dream off road and I would have put it up against any all comer in standard trim with a locker.
    When I decided to sell it, the young guy that bought it was getting shit from his Jeep driving mates when they came to have a look at it. The shit continued on the day he collected it. I took him aside and told him to keep his mouth shut and his powder dry, and that if he had the driving ability, the RR had capability to knock his mates into next week.
    He rang me back a couple of weeks later after their first off-road adventure and was crowing about the fact that he took my advice. He took the shit from his mates, but one by one during the day he had to recover each and every one of them, and at the end of the day was the only one that didn't need recovering. As a respectful LR owner he took the moral high ground and didn't stoop to shit slinging, but his mates had become strangely mute.

    I love my series 1 Disco.
    Went from driving a Rav4 to the 300tdi Disco and it's better in every way. More comfortable, less road noise way more space and even uses less fuel.
    By brother now owns the Rav4 and he has had more problems and had to spend more on it that my Landy dispite having done 50,000 less kms.

    It's definitely not perfect, but the $2000 it cost me to buy and get back on the road was well worth it!
    A Hilux surf would've cost me 4 times as much.

    Haha ... they are actually very good off rd

    I'd take any one of my series landrovers far more places than other standard trucks.

    Iv also had far less problems than some of my hiluxes and landcruisers... Go figure...

    It all seems to come down to lack of maintenance and abuse that determines parts failure.

    The Discovery was a gamble but pretty rare in manual with the 300tdi - it also has really surprised me off rd.

    Also at 6 foot 4 inches tall is one of the most comfortable trucks Iv been in ... I had to put the seat forward a bit...

    Dunedin to Picton on Saturday in one stretch very impressive
