    The best shag I ever had was in a Landrover Defender and that is not the only reason why I'm giving this car five stars! You can keep your miserable little Honda Jazz and Nissan Micra, the Defender is a proper car which doesn't take any s**t and gets you there on time.

    If you care about your nails and the colour coordination of handbags, this car really isn't for you! But if you have an adventurous spirit and a strong personality, this car speaks of power and unrefined style, something missing from the general car market.

    If you like a little fun and don't care what others think, the Landrover Defender is a truely wonderful car. Brilliant!

    "step back to the 60's and enjoy!"



    Had 3 of these over the years, drive a 90 most days and have to say its the most uncomfortable you can be in a car, bar none.. so why do I like it? Good question! dd loves it, dh loves it. I suppose the fact that there is no nod towards anything fancy or modern goes a long way..

    "Not everyone's cup of tea but is certainly worth a look"



    Dh has a 110 on a 2010 plate. He uses it daily for work as goes to farms, stables etc so needs to go off road frequently.
    We use the Landy to go on holiday, days to beach, camping etc. It is absolutely fantastic. We have a full length roof box so can take all camping stuff and more, no minimal camping for us! The boot fits all bedding and all the rest on top.
    This means the dc are happy as they only have their toys in the back, not squashed in with everything else. They love being high up and being able to see out the windows as well as driving through rivers or across the dunes.
    Seats are very comfortable. The front seats are upright and only recline slightly, but when you get out there is not that need to stretch nor an ache in your back..
    Easy to park in car parks as narrower than most cars, but is high so doesn't always fit into multi stories.
    I could go on but had better stop now.
    Yes it is more costly in fuel, yes it is noisy, but boy is it fun and life is there to be had!
