Here's why a 20-year-old Land Rover Defender costs $70,000 -- or more -- in the United States.

      My defender has covered about 300k miles ,I had to only replace the driveshaft after 150k miles and even the engine needed a overhauling! But that is common for any overlander ! So I'm okay with mine ! Rock solid and more capable than even a Jeep Wrangler ( I know again many Americans will get triggered,but I even do like the jeep,at least better than a hummer ) after it was fitted with diff lockers and the same type of suspension and wheels which a stock wrangler carries ! And you can make a lot of builds with that particular vehicle ! If this vehicle was not that reliable,then why is it still used by safari conductors along with land cruisers in Africa? Why was it the number one in camel trophy? No hate ,all 4x4s are good ,even though I love my defender the most ,but every great 4x4 has been built for a reason ! If there is something crap,then it would be Chinese jeeps and the hummer !

      When trekking across Tunisia, you soon realise why the Defender is the way it is. If you want a fast Defender, then buy a Bowler Wildcat. Peoples jaws will drop.

      The long wheel base 4 door defender with a tuck cab on the back is the number one choice of off-roaders for Scottish farmers, it’s good for pulling out stuck vehicles, transporting a few sheep from a to b, pulling livestock trailers, going over rough farm roads and more.

      The Defender is a renamed ex-military vehicle that had been in use by the British Army for 40+ years. It was designed to be rugged, competent and reliable and didn't need luxuries in military service. They added a few extras to make it more attractive to the civilian market, simple.

      Yes they are good, but boy they don’t like rust...or should I say they DO like rust...I’ve had two, reliable is a byword but they needed looking after, chassis particularly vulnerable, saying that it was in Scotland lots of the vid though!!

      How can such a basic car with ZERO electronics and features be so unreliable? Landrover must be a sh-tty maker of cars!

      You get basically the same with an UAZ Hunter and for $15 000. I can't decide though if the Defender or the Hunter is the coolest. I both love them, but the price of the UAZ convinces me.

      My first car was a Land Rover series 3 that was fitted with a 202 Holden motor. The original series 3 motors were only useful as boat anchors. The Australian army were smart enough to fit their Land Rover Defenders with Isuzu 3.9-litre four-cylinder 4BD1 Diesel engines.

      Hey I used to have a Isuzu trooper 2, it was slow, had no power steering,
      And I loved that thing, only concern was the roll over risk, that thing could go absolutely anywhere and everywhere and would run alllll day with no issues with pushing it to the limits

      Why can't british brands be reliable. Take the L322 Range Rover. They built the same basic model for 10 years. It seems like by the last year of that run they'd have all the kinks worked out, and it'd be a reliable rock solid version of the L322 ....but no. No they didn't do that.
