bad

I had the 2.5td 1997, got the "VM" Engine in.

Nice car but very, very expensive when it goes wrong, normally cracking heads and head gaskets going.

I would stay away

Andy, please don't. My Dad has just scrapped his after a complete engine melt down, (VM engine). Also its tiny, you would never fit in it.

Andy.


Noooooooooo!!!!!

Borrowed one once, as Pete says they are tiny inside, and unless you put the spare wheel on a bracket outside the boot is small too.

I hated it.

Is the wife still playing up about a Deli?

The Jeep would have no advantage over your Kia, would be slower and cost more to run.

Thanks everyone.

Don't be too quick to condenm it,my '96 rib tug is great,2.5 td 103k on it and it drives lovely.They also fitted that motor to early range rover diesels,as with all cars it's history is paramount,i've seen blown disco's before.
They are cheap and I think good value.You won't get a disco or rr with leather,cruise and fridge for under 3 grand

All about valve, If Dino's Jeep was a Disco ES, would be worth 4-4.5 trade
yet the jeep only has a book valve of 2600, 2k buys a few repairs, and the disco is not 100% cost free,
Had a 95 2.5TD ltd se in px the other week 2000 and its your !!
