I bought my 110 (300tdi engine) from new 16 years ago and have done 200,000 problem free miles in it. Comfort in the front is good and it has tons of space. I still use it off road occasionally and it is impressive. Downsides are that it is noisy, can only just cruise at 75mph and does 27mpg. I dont plan to ever sell it but I do have a quieter car for long jouneys ! (read more)

I recently purchased the Land Rover Defender off a bloke that has owned it all of its life though reading some of the earlier reviews I can agree with some things and disagree with others. Overall I think that they are a very well built tough car that will go anywhere, and there's nothing that can follow you well........ except another Landrover. (read more)

It's not reliable (see above), it's not secure (my friend's Peugeot 106 key unlocks my 110), it's not cheap to run, but, on the other hand, it is not a matter of being the best of its kind, it is THE ONLY of its kind. I can fit 9 people seatbelted in mine, with 9 expedition rucksacks on the top. I have pulled a car-carrying lorry out of mud, at a towing angle of about 60 degrees. I have hit a pothole in a forestry track, 10 miles from the road, at 30 miles an hour and bounced straight back... (read more)

What can I say other than it truly is an icon - fantastic at what it does. If you want comfort go for a Range Rover but if you want a proper off roader with loads of pulling power go for this. Mine is the earliest available and with 170,000 miles on the clock the V8 still purrs and runs great.
Look out for dodgy bulk heads and bad chassis repairs, go for the V8 or TDi as the others are underpowered. (read more)

I have a Land Rover Defender 110 Station Wagon County 4x4 and it has a very reliable engine and is easy to maintain at home (unlike TD5). Very comfortable pulling big caravan with 5 bikes and all the usual family junk.
Great for launching and retrieving boats on slipways, max towing weight 3500kg (braked trailer). Good ground clearance unlike many more fashionable 4x4s. Loads of space and comfy seats. Noisy on motorways at 70mph, but good roadholding. Quite thirsty, but better than the 3L... (read more)

I wanted a large rugged 4x4 vehicle that could be used for everything my family could throw at it. I used Land Rovers in the Army and was amazed at what they could do. I also wanted a vehicle that I could maintain myself to save on rip-off garage bills. What can I say? The Land Rover Defender 110 Station Wagon County pulls a huge caravan, carrys the kids, the wife, the muddy dog, 4 push bikes, 15 foot planks of wood on the roof rack, bricks and cement from the builders yard, rubble down the...
