Our Land Rover Defender has been a vehicle long in the making. We ordered this rig back in June, and it is most likely the cheapest Defender in the country! We had an issue that caused a check engine light. With that solved we have a new issue, this one completely different!

      Of course they had problems. I NEVER buy a car until its third model year, where 99% of the time most issues have been worked out by the factory. Served me well on several cars. Never had a problem, while the people with the first year cars were miserable

      The sell because they are a status symbol. Personally I love land rovers. They look better than any other suv by miles. The Range Rover lines are just perfection and this new defender keeping the boxxy look is just tremendous!

    I sit here in England truly feeling sorry for you but also giggling a little bit, in 2007 i bought a brand new go anywhere 110 land rover, mate, the worst car ever, it was used on road only as i had a very large dog and it was the right size for her to be comfortable in the back. I used to look at the dash board every time i started it and wondered what light would stay on and at least one always did. Road tax ended up exorbitant because of the omissions, needed a new EGR valve after 27000 miles at a cost of over £500, worst part of that was having to deal with the dealerships, the people must have to pass an idiot test and born arrogant to get the job. It failed the first MOT on the car not being put together properly from factory (road springs not seated properly and a bad bush on the steering). 27000 miles this was a piece of s**t, would never buy a land rover again. Get used to driving to the dealership, you might be there a few times in the warrant period more than you thought.

    Again, driving a dirt road and going through a fking puddle is NOT off roading. If you ever did take a LR truly off road it would still be there. I have two friends who’ve bought them because they were “cool” and they both say they were the worst vehicles they ever owned.

    I'm on my 3rd LR, a D4, and I love them. But I really wish LR would fix their build issues. This is 2020, this high tech stuff has been around for a while now. This makes me not want to look into a Defender when it comes time to wave the D4 goodbye. The only very slightly saving grace is that this is the 1st model year and the general consensus to avoid a first model year for this very reason....

    Two comments: 1) I have the same small motor, P300, 18in Defender as TFL -- and all is working really well. So, hopefully all for TFL will be fixed soon. 2) Only one configuration of the Toyota Land Cruiser is sold in North America -- it is fully kitted out and costs $100K US dollars plus. Also, I believe they are ceasing the sale the Land Cruiser in a couple of years. Just a note for those of you who are Aussies. Also, no HiLux here -- nor new Defenders with diesel, available.

    get a divorce from your addiction to prestige and buy a toyota . They AYWAYS start and run and very rarely ever head in the direction of the repair shop. Most of what one gets in a luxury car are "add ons" . the basics of engine , brakes and transmission are similar but all the electronics leather seats and prestige crap are what you are really paying for , plus the privilege of being seen driving your fancy car the the dealer for repairs .

    Your luck with the defender is devastating - I was wanting to ignore the landrover reliability stories and buy a base spec defender..I figured your experiences would convince me they were actually fine and I could ignore the internet brand smearing. Apparently not! Also - I think that the dealer should make you whole. Pull the needed module out of one of the unsold defenders and get you fully operational, if the manufacturer can't provide parts in a timely manner - then they should compensate the dealer for using one of the other vehicles as a pick and pull.
