For a cheap and efficient option I would suggest a Land Rover Discovery MK2 . Thirsty but a great workhorse. My father has one in our mountain home and its a great car for pulling stuff etc . They look beautifully classic as well in green with them discovery decals, roof ladders etc :grin:


Range Rover is an impressive car ! I would try some convincing as well... mind you saying that in my case it never works when it comes to cars/ garages etc. :violin:

I'm with you on the Disco2, the only point that of slight concern was the potential for expensive rust in the rear subframe unless someone else knows a bit more info. A TD5 Mk2 Disco would be perfect.

Have you had the fault yet where the screens get all scrambled up, or the bottom one glitches and doesn't come on.

What about the one where the back box falls off on the A421 and your wife laughs at you all the way home from Ikea? :oops:

The one down here doesnt have any rust but then again its a much dryer climate surely. Power steering, air con, all electrics, massive, roomy interior for 7 people with upper windows, british design make the disco mk2 a great car and i love it. Can sent some pics when at the mountain house next as its permanently there .... Btw love climbing on its roof ( there is a ladder :lol: ) and watch from its top with binoculars from the very top of a mountain ( Disco can get up there easily !!!) the surrounding mountains etc. Its an amazing car to go up mountains and difficult terrain :worship:
