Brilliant off road, except for the jerky accelerator. Good on road
Nothing has gone wrong, and being a Land Rover, nothing will go wrong!
My Land Rover Defender TD5 1999 model has a very jerky/touchy accelerator, and just seems to start kangaroo hopping at low speeds, even in 1st gear. I was wondering if anybody else has this problem with their TD5 motor?? Is it the same with all TD5's, or is it a problem with only some of the vehicles?? Is there any cure or way to fix this problem??
I have tried to let the clutch out before I start to accelerate, but that doesn't seem to work very well. Besides that, it is a superb vehicle, and I am very happy with its performance.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
