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.

New engine and gearbox mounts. New head lights. New seat belts. And replaced all the missing bits around the car. It had a heap of engine work done by the previous owner, which is all good, but now needs the axels and hubs looked at. Other than the axels, there is the usual rust in the door fr

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: LAND ROVER DEFENDER

The olde worlde Defender has a legion of fans who all usually have one thing in common; they like to drive off-road.

Fortunately, the Defender was very good at this, but it's always worth a close check underneath to see if anything has been damaged on those weekends jumping logs and crawling over rocks.

It's also worth checking the condition of the oil in the differentials, too (although it's not especially easy) for contamination of the oil by water (from river crossings).

The five-cylinder turbo-diesel model could have problems with oil pumps failing which sometimes led to a complete engine melt-down.

Some early manual gearboxes were also a bit flimsy. And as anybody who has ever owned a Land Rover will tell you, the axles can be a weak link in the chain.

The diesel versions all need a timing-belt change at 80,000km intervals so look for evidence that this has been done.
