What 4 X 4?
Posted 22 June 2007 - 10:06 pm
If you could chose a 4 x 4 which is a good all rounder! a good off roader! returning a fairly decent MPG which suits all your needs!! which make and model would it be?

For offroad / road ability and reliability I'd go for the shogun/landcruiser/discovery2/3....for something you just want to go anywhere get muddy, dirty, stinking, then hose it out and not bother about road noise and handling.......defender....

I have an L200 and a Rodeo I prefer the Rodeo as an all rounder but the L200 has its points.
Defenders are F**k**g use less on road and off road with out a winch but cheap and miserable that can be hosed down easily + they look the part!!

I thought I was probably best buying one of the last D1's when most of the problems were sorted than an early D2 that after reading around seem to have reliability issues and more leaks than the Belgrano!!!
It is heavy on fuel if you hammer it, not unusual for me to get 12 MPG but then on a run if I'm gentle with it, I have also seen 20/22 MPG, am happy enough with it so far, parts seem cheap and there is plenty of free advice on the internet if you break it.
Just need to get it dirty now!!!!

Think at most my L200 would do about 25 mpg tops. Slightly more in the Landie but its a work horse not a show horse like the L200 seemed to be.

easy on the juice and a cracking off road machine, for rough work and alot of off road you won't beat the defender.... after some off roading a friend of mine got stuck in his trooper, i drove the landy in past him and towed us both out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! needless to say he now has a landy defender... AS he's a bit of a dirt devil
