    Landrover Freelander - What's the go?

    I have just taken possession of an XR6 Turbo Falcon as a company car and really can't justify keeping my personal Toyota Highlander so have been looking at something alternate that will get me to the bush and bash up a track. I have seen a 2002 Landrover Freelander that is in reasonable nick for an old shitter and cheap enough that it wouldn't worry me if it got beat up but I know fuck all about them.

    So give me the good oil guys (and the bad as well).
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    You know all those good stories your mates with them have told you Rushy.

    Well that would sum it up.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    Its the Landrover, how dare you then ask about reliability and quality control in the same breath.

    Don't touch them.

    You'd be better off buying an old surf or something like that as a hunting/fishing/outdoors weekend wagon.+

    And, who the f**k gives out XR6 turbo's as company cars! LOL Awesome!
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    It is a nice car Josh but totally inappropriate to my role which requires me to visit freshly cut construction sites

    You are an exceedingly generous man to have made that offer but I suspect my employer might frown on that.
