A little more info might help...By 4x4 do you mean pick up as the l200 is ? What is your use for the vehicle ? do you need a large load space? would a 4x4 van do or a 4x4 like the cr-v ,kuga or rav4.

Then we might be able to narrow down your choices.

Probably better to buy a really good used vehicle.....Land Rover Disco 1 300tdi .......great engine and avoids higher road tax.....there are some nice ones about at the moment.

Dont buy a landi disco.... Ever ever ever...!!!

Just got rid of mine - best thing i have done - cost a fortune to run, repair, etc.

I'll never buy a landrover again.

Do you have big feet? If so avoid the L200 cos the facia panel comes so far down into the footwell that the points of your footwear scrape the panel-not especially helpful if you have to brake suddenly! You also mention kids but remember they grow up so space and legroom in the back is woeful for kids above approx. 4' 6" and travelling a long distance. As the driver you sit so low to the floor that the seat bottom is next to useless. The 2.5 Diesel is very thirsty so have a fuel tanker follow you. The tyres are expensive so buy shares in a rubber plantation.


On the plus side it has good sized door mirrors.

NO,No,No,No,No,No............ Don't be taking any notice of that at all.

What you are looking for is a nice shiny 1999 Disco Td5.:Razz

They are such a nice reliable car you wondered how you ever got by without one.

Here is a very nice example that I could sell you for 193-50 with full tax and m.o.t also a full tank of fuel.;)
