Well you are sort of right, if you don't drive them and keep on top of them.......

My 1999 D2 is absolutely awesome in comparison

But having said that, I can leave the D1 for months and just jump straight in and she runs like a sewing machine.....

I just need to blow the tyres up now

Kerny, you're not starting to believe the marketing men are you?

"Off Road" actually means "off the road".

Like WMD's and IED's, there's no difference other than which country they're in.

I have a Defender for work, reliable but probably the most uncomfortable car to drive. Mates Disco & his Dads Range Rover always in the garage..
Did somebody mention Japanese ??
I have a 1999 disco, I've had it for nearly 7 years,it tows the boat, caravan and the odd go around the forests , its had the normal service bits and only been on a recovery once due to a key transponder fault which fixed its self ?? I also look after a fleet of Defenders which do what it says on the tin, certainly not perfect and all have their faults but the drivers mostly like them.

Well, I've taken a load of bolts out & got stuck on one side. Oh and got covered in coolant, maybe thats a sign of affection or something.

I've had a look at some of the Landrover forums but they all seem a bit scary, can anyone recommend a friendly one ?

Mister, you could have saved yourself the trouble. The bolts will come out of their own accord, as will the coolant. Just wait and it'll do it all for you, including the first stages of a body replacement and heart reset. You shan't find anything wrong, until you run it for 100 or so miles, after which the same symptoms will appear, over and over and over until you "fall in love with it".
;-(

Sorry, but there's an old familiar tale here, which usually ends something like this............. unless you're handy with spanners and keen to use 'em, avoid old sheds.
