Or maybe the rear had already gone

Only the driver/owner knows!

Anyway, having had a look at the other videos, the off-road videos shot inside the Pajero make it look very easy. I've only been extreme off-road a couple of times, once was on the circuit at the Motor Heritage Museum at Gaydon in Warwickshire. Their Disco squeaked and rattled, sounded like the suspension was about to fail in a very spectacular way! In contrast, the Pajero on those videos is very quiet and the driver very relaxed listening to the radio ("The Lion Sleeps Tonight" and "Show Me The Way To Amarillo"?)

Could it be that old Landy reliable Gearbox failure, transfeer box failed so it could never go into 4wd, or did the driver reach for the selector stick but his hand dissapeared tro one of the large rust holes in the floor
I think Landys are buckets of rust, worse than any SUV with all the oil they leak, gutless, old fashioned, poorly engineered and inherrent with design faults and on their bad side
Landys are old hat, run a flawed TD5 motor with know defects, and recall issues , uncomfortable to drive, poorly finished and uneconomical


You dont see Landys in Dakar, they are not up to it,

Landy electronics is like comparing the graphics on a Sinclair zx Spectrum with say an l200 post 2002 akin to a ps2 consoles graphics.



Defenders for farmers
Freelanders for moms dropping the kids to school
Discoverys for wanabee 4x4 enthausists


L200 s for towing diggers, large ribs, huge trailers and servicing antennas on top of mountains
