If landrovers are so unreliable then a reliable Jap 4x4 is the way forward.......NOT!
from another forum....
I got my new Navara Navara Outlaw Auto D40 at 2006. I had a great time with it but it came with extremely high cost.
For 5 years and 96000 miles I've had replaced 13 half shafts, 1 axle, 1 turbo, 1 steering rack, 1 set of steering wheel controls, 1 central locking component. I've never been in a garage before so many many times.
And i suspect this isnt fiction , My mate works in a very large well known autofactors
The only halfshaft they stock(not inclusing FWD driveshafts) is the Navara one.
