    Christ what a ****wit. I just can't listen to his drivel about electronics being unreliable (in any car), and that you can't trust a Land Rover not to break down, like you can with the Japanese makes.

    The world has moved on. He hasn't.

    Not a review but the NCAP testing:



    Clear demonstration of why it is built the way it is especially for pedestrian safety.

    John Cadogen (AutoExpert on YouTube) has just released a video on why one shouldn’t by the new Defender. I haven’t watched it all yet but he may be right.

    Who’d be silly enough to buy one in the first year of manufacture?

    interesting review and only a few mistakes..

    The 81K he mentions for the P400 in the UK is the top of the range X model, not the SE he was driving, that is not even available in the UK
    All vehicles come standard with rubber washout floors, it is not an off road pack upgrade
    There is no snorkel, so fitting the unsealed RAI adds nothing to the existing 900mm wading depth

    one of the more reasonably straight down the line reviews

    He says that he paid 81k for that P400 SE that he bought - he was not talking about the LR list price. On his other test on his Harry's Farm channel he also said that he paid 81k for what he had - on the farm channel he lamented that for his 81K it would have been nice to have a bit more luxury and wondered where all the money went too.

    However, when he first mentioned 81K I did a mental currency conversion and came up with $143,000AUD which is in the X model realm so maybe Harry did get it wrong.

    That box on the side is pretty silly and I am surprised it meets ADRs for rear vis through the mirrors.

    Cheers

    Hi Garry

    it was a loaner from Land Rover for him to do a long term test, I suspect he quoted from the UK list price, with the P400, which only being available in the X starts at a hefty number.
    its bizarre as most of the other markets, US, Europe and Australia you can get the P400 from the S model and up, LR must think the UK masses are not worthy of such options

    Oh Ok - I thought he said he had purchased the vehicle.

    On the side box - I assume yours has it - if so how do you find it - does as Harry says - partially block your view through the door mirror. When you sell me your Defender in a couple of years for $30K it is the first thing that will be removed .

    Cheers
