No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the LDV reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.
LDV T60 2019: Brakes not working properly
Have the dealer let you drive a demo vehicle and see if that is the same as yours. If it isn’t than have him investigate why yours is different; if it’s not it could be that it’s the way the LDV brakes are. You could take it to a brake specialist and have them give you an opinion on it, and maybe suggest a fix.

It sounds like a speed warning alarm, which should be able to be reset. Check your owner’s manual that should tell you how to do it.
LDV G10 2016: Blowing white smoke
Service intervals are specified as either/or, it’s whichever comes first. Your service is due in August, or at 30,000 km if that comes first. White smoke would tend to suggest a problem with the turbocharger. Turbochargers have to have clean oil to survive; dirty oil will kill them eventually. You need to negotiate with LDV, if you haven’t missed the service by a long way you might be able to get some help on the cost of repairs; otherwise you’re unlikely to get much assistance.
