Land Rover Defender 110
Added: 12th of October 2016
I have had my Defender 110 csw 300tdi for 4 years now , it has covered over 18000 miles and still going strong. The main thing with any vehicle is to have it serviced regularly , this will prolong the life of the vehicle as well as keeping the repair costs down. The Defender does have some down sides in comparison to modern vehicles , mostly comfort and speed . The latter however is of no importance to me as I know my vehicle is not built for speed . I do know however , that it will get me to and from my destination , especially if it involves off tarmac , flood water , snow . I do a lot of camping all year and the ability to load all the gear in ,including a fridge (runs off a secondary battery),this would not be possible with a modern equivalent. Fuel consumption is around 25-33 depending on load and type of terrain. Insurance is not expensive and road tax is £235 pa.
