Have a look at the thread in its entierity, you will see I compliement Landies, Defenders especially, however thats where it stops, as I tell the truth about their unreliability and their host of mechanical defects, and in general poor engineering, deplorable corrision resistance and costly maintaince.
In various attempts to ridicule what I post I am slagged off, called names etc , a few guys who have Landies and are in Denial, come on here singing their praises etc, but as you can see, apart from insults slung at me , no credible links or evidence has been posted on this thread to sway my feelings about their build quality and reliability, or disprove the links to the various sites I have linked.
People can quite freely read surveys, owners synopsis of vehicle historys, links from the Landy enthuasists sites etc and posts to know problems, and press releases about the flawed td5 engine, released with known defects, and the whole debacle of the Freelander ands its inherrent head gasket failure.
I am only giving you the information, you can make your own decisions.
Codprawn can to his credit defend Landy, but we need proof, not insults

all that does is make me feel that what I am posting is correct and to his dislike.
