The oil cooler leaked and had to be replaced.
The windscreen seals failed and caused a buffeting noise.
Air conditioner has played up, and has needed to be repaired twice.
Door bolts get loose when driving off road for a long period of time.
The car performs well enough, especially considering its s diesel. I will fit an aftermarket ECU to improve its performance by 25 percent though.
The engine is incredibly smooth, although not quick off the mark.
Off road ability is outstanding. I have owned several land rovers before, but this is the best off road by far. I also thoroughly recommend an automatic gearbox rather than manual, its way better both on and off road.
Diesel is a way better bet than petrol, especially over long distances as the range is way better and fuel economy bearable. 23 mpg around town.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
