    New Defender Rage/Hate Thread

    Maybe Scott Brady can add a pissing contest to Overland Expo so those who want to can grab a beer and a chair and sit back and enjoy those wishing to go at it. Come on guys, two threads have already been locked down, this is just getting silly now. Oh, and by the way, I hate the new Defender...

    Wasn't the LR3 a 4.4 V8 Jag engine? The 6 cyl was a Ford engine.

    What would you replace your LR3/4 with ?

    I still have my D1 but I made the shift to a used 2014 4Runner this past spring for daily driving/travel trips. I had to drop almost $6K into the LR3 over the previous year (instrument cluster, rad, etc) and I still needed to do all the control arms and a couple other preventive maintenance...

    $20 and $30k over MSRP. Guess most will be mallcrawlers/fashion jewellery and not out on trails because hopefully real LR folks won’t be held ransom like this.

    LR3 V. 4Runner Need To Buy One Now.

    I sold my LR3 when it had over 360,000 kms on it. I drove a lot. It was very comfortable on the road and while I budgeted for the typical maintenance, it was the oddball stuff that ended up killing me, instrument cluster ($1800), EPB, etc so one year was almost $6K in repairs. Looking at what...

    Well I'd have to disagree. We use our LR's off-road. :)

    In regard to EAS, the system in my P38 was rock solid. When the compressor started getting weak, I installed 4 air valves and topped it up every couple of weeks rather than risk a fault. It held air beautifully and at 330,000 kms, those were the original front springs. The LR3 system worked good...

    I had a Front Runner on my LR Discovery I. It never sat perfectly straight, was loud, was just a bit too short to hold my Autohome RTT and the corner hardware rusted very quickly. Front Runner was excellent though, tried to help, then offered a discount which I took and sold the rack on to...

    The Thule works great, holds two mountain bikes and my canoe. Sings a bit in the wind but not too bad and much quieter than the Front Runner rack I had on a previous Land Rover.
