Tough patrol

Asked by Chris Percy

I AM moving to Darwin and plan to buy a four-wheel-drive for about $15,000. I'm thinking of an early-90s Nissan Patrol or Jeep Cherokee, preferably diesel. It will be used for exploring at weekends but mainly work/family driving during the week in the suburbs. Which would you recommend?

I'D GO for the GQ Nissan Patrol. It's tough, plenty of parts are available and everyone knows how to fix them. I don't have any real problem with the Jeep, though early ones were poorly built and rather rudimentary with a small cabin.
