I have just sold my 13 year old Discovery and it had very little rust on it. I'd say that was rubbish, the ones that rust are the ones that have been ploughed through salt (or manure) and never washed underneath. There are some dogs around, but some gems too, choose wisely and find a decent one.
I would have bought another one if they still made them but as the new one is something I wouldn't touch with a barge pole, I'm replacing it with a Shogun. Land Rover has lost the plot, and the only vehicle they make now that might be faintly interesting might be the new Defender, if they don't fk that up as well.
