    Reliability

    Once things start happening though, LOOK OUT. The ONE thing these things do best is disappoint. Could they build a better vehicle? Of course. Are they using inferior materials (rubber and plastic components, primarily)? Definitely. Look at your key fobs. It's the same crap under the hood.

    Cloud of Smoke

    For the benefit of those of us needing to know... At what intervals have you been changing your oil?

    Reliability

    Agreed. There are maintenance schedules and then maintenance schedules under "severe" conditions. Those severe conditions are - A. stop & go traffic - B. extreme hot & cold - C. dusty & muddy conditions - D. poor road conditions

    @double 0 - @Troy Angrignon The fuel pump is in the fuel tank and designed to be cooled by the fuel. No fuel in the tank, pump gets hotter than should be.

    Reliability

    As a Service Writer for a Land Rover/ Jaguar Indy, I can honestly say the customers we rarely see are the ones who follow the 3 rules of owning a Land Rover. 1. Never let the gas get below 1/4 tank. 2. Service Intervals of 5,000 - 7,000 miles 3. Never let the vehicle overheat

    Wiring Diagram Needed ('89 Defender 110)

    Howdy! Trying to correctly wire a South African built "Custom Defender" that is most assuredly not NAS. A/C unit that came with the truck wasn't up to Texas heat. Start poking around, thermostatic switch is bad, Freon leak and poor draining of condensation. Both leaks are fixed, new...

    Any Dash Cams you particularly like for being inconspicuous / ease of install?

    I use a system I found on Amazon for around $250. It came with a DVR that stores in my glovebox (or wherever I wanted it) and 2 cameras that had about 12' of cable each. The cameras are about 2 1/2" x 2 1/2". Never had an issue with it, has saved my butt a few times.

    Chair Lift on LR3?

    I'm assuming here, but is the scooter to ride on a rack on the back of the vehicle? A tow hitch kinda thing?

    Costco's Kirkland Signature 5W-20?

    As a Service Writer (not at a dealership), I can confirm there are different part numbers for the exact same part used in Jags and Landys. The prices differ as well. We always cross reference the parts to make sure we are buying the cheaper of the parts.
