LAND ROVER DEFENDER Used Car Review

Defender is a relatively modern name (introduced in 1990), though it's applied to a vehicle that has barely changed since two brothers at Rover decided to build a superior British version of the World War II Jeep in 1947. Beloved by off-road enthusiasts, farmers and countryside dwellers alike, the aluminium-bodied Defender finally went out of production in 2016 - after 67 consecutive years of production.

Pros

Cons

  • Go-anywhere off-road ability
  • Impressive diesel engines
  • Assorted body styles to choose from
  • Classic design with a die-hard following
  • Poor ergonomics, limited refinement, and sketchy interior quality
  • Better to drive off road than on
  • Slow steering make the Defender hard to drive in cities/suburbs
  • Production stopped in 2016
This is general information and should not be relied on as purchasing advice.

Very regrettable sale, but the family is growing and therefore the Defender needs to grow too, if I could keep this and have a bigger one - I WOULD. Have recently. Bought another 110 so needing to sell. Chasing a square 50 as that's what we bought our other one for. Added features - window tinting, aftermark

Selling my Pride and Joy Although it may not look like much now, this Defender has had a lot of modifications. I started stripping it down (was registered) and getting it prepped for Winch Challenge Class but due to family and work commitments I just don’t have the time to complete it. Spent over $100,000 as this was a one of a kind many years ago and was also pretty much a research and development car for most aftermarket suppliers as nothing like it had been done before. Mods where done
