My Land Rover is older and has done more miles and yet he stills says - you should scrap it!!! See what I mean???
My Landrover has not had any faults since I have had it other than propshaft UJs which are normal at high milage - and God only knows what sort of life it had with the Police chasing joyriders across mountains - probably similar to the way I use it actually!!!
sounds like you have a good landy!
had a shogun 3500 and i could give a long list of the things that went wrong with that thing, which was a dissappointment as they are supposed to be very reliable, i think a lot of it was down to the numpty dealer i was using who made a good living on the items they replaced on my car under warranty.
one thing i must say with landys is i have always sold them for more than i paid for them which is very cool actually
dont mind people slating beemers in the slightest, mine has more electrics than most with tvs, dvd, and playstation built in for the kids so fingers crossed i wont suffer electrical issues. but i love it and that is all that matters and have 3 yrs warranty.
one to think about
RAC 5 star warranty with car value per claim uplift......
3 yr warranty on a beemer 740, £500 ish, i paid £200 (this year)
3 yr warranty on a jag xjr, £1250 (paid 3 yrs ago, even more now)
why.......because they expect more claims, and they got them, boy did they get em.......haha
will let this one die out now from my perspective as dont want to sound like a broken record. but if you have chipped a landy go to the tread about chipping a td5 and give me some feedback.
