What 4 X 4?

Recommended Posts


I'm now going through grief from the missus to sell the Nav and get a Freelander TD4 :doh:, she reckons she hates going shopping in it, hates parking it as its too long for most spaces, and last night she told me someone called her a Butch Lesbo in the Aldi Carpark :kiss:, not a bad idea that? she could bring her pal home with her then :drink:.

 

Reading up on Freelanders they read like they do get a few problems expecially the pre 2000 models, does anyone else rate them or hate them??

 

Cheers

Just been looking around for a new 4x4 and it was a toss up between the Nissan Patrol, Cruiser, Rangey or the Disco.....ended up buying the Disco today. It's what I'm used to and this one is a nice lump. It's a 3.9 V8 and it's mint.....it won't be for long though :D

what 4x4 ? i'v had a few, startin with land rovers, too expensive for what they are, probably better off road than most but its a balance, i'm not always off road only on the odd ocasion, gone japanese in last few years, wont go back, reliability is the key word !

i have got the d40 new model navara now with a hard top on for dogs, its fab, best truck i have owned, take some beating.comfortable, stylish, rugged and very practical. no smells in car from dogs/wet gear is the best part, swill back out with hose when needed !

no 4x4 are cheap to run, i get over 30mpg which is good for size of truck, service intervals 18000 miles or 18 months, still got a few months to go !

couldnt recomend a better bus ! :D

Good choice mate!

 

What year is it? How much is fuel where you are? If you can get it there, try Super Unleaded in it (not "innit" don't ban me! :angel: ) Have been using Super in mine for a few weeks now and it definitely runs smoother and picks up quicker on it.

 

Likes a drink of oil too though ........... about a litre every 1000 miles ............ :icon_eek: Deffo no leaks and the emissions are ok too, seems the V8 just likes to burn oil!!!

Dogs are in the back out of my airspace when they fart and are dirty. Just got to get my tyres fitted and lamp in the roof and winch fitted to the front.
