Toyota LandCruiser: replacement for a 100 series

Answered by CarsGuide 16 Mar 2015

It's the LandCruiser every time if you're heading into the outback. The truck itself is just about bulletproof and gets The Tick from me. Toyota's service and support in the bush is legendary and could make all the difference if you strike trouble.

Crank or bearing failure on Landrover Discovery 3

Answered by CarsGuide 21 Nov 2014

The best approach is to contact Landrover Australia directly, but when you do make sure you are armed with as much information about the failure as you can. A report by a mechanic with specialist knowledge of Landrovers on what caused the failure would help your cause.

Things to look for on a Discovery 3

Answered by CarsGuide 22 Nov 2013

The LR3 was hailed as a major step forward in reliability, but there are one or two issues to be aware of.

Landrover Discovery repairs

Answered by CarsGuide 8 Dec 2011

I would expect that he should be paying for the repairs under the terms of the contract, and if you want to proceed that way I would be getting legal advice with the thought of sending him a solicitors letter of demand. The alternative is to negotiate a settlement as he suggests.
