show me a 40 year old jap machine that has been used everyday by a farmer or other commercial user i can show you plenty Landrovers
statistcs show that over 75% of all landrovers built since 1948 are still being used
I saw that as well about 75% still running when I was at the factory everything that's built is sold they can't make enough at the mo and most people only tell you the bad stories anyway
I know a chap that a fleet manager of 1200 cars from Ferrari to fiestas and they all break down.

Land Rover Defender

Just had to jump in on this one ...

Defenders rock !! Yes they have thier own characteristics but I have been brought up around them and had the pure pleasure of bringing up my kids around them - They are iconic and no other vehicle conveys adventure and ruggedness like the Defender. They are so much fun, carry a load of stuff and very, very capable ...

The black one below has been prepped for serious overlanding and has taken us over the Sahara (twice) , The Artic Circle, numerous winter alps crossings and Pyrennees trips and hundreds of camping / off road adventures ...

The grey one is the family car, workhorse and official tow vehicle for Maverick.

And I have yet to find a 4 x 4 with a higher payload capability. Put the factory fit heavy duty suspension on and they can carry a small planet
