Now I've heard some pretty good British car jokes (Dad has a Sunbeam Alpine) but that one is one I won't soon forget.Campfire said:"Why do the British like warm beer?"
"They have Lucas refrigerators!"
WOW!Benson said:A very excited coworker came into my office last week and dragged me to the parking garage to show me the used Disco he was buying for his son. An '04, the last of the old style, he bought it (traded a heep, of all things) because it was a "good deal".
Three days later his son is driving it and it gets a flat. Rather than change the flat he decides to drive slow to the tire shop for a fix. He is nervous driving on a nearly flat tire (rightfully so) and is gripping the wheel pretty hard. At a stoplight he somehow pulls back on the steering wheel and it comes completely off! So he jams it back on as best he can and pulls over to have his 1 1/2 year old, 12k miles vehicle towed to the dealer to discover (no pun intended) that a few crucial parts were missing. According to the dealer there was no evidence that it had been serviced in that area, it was just missing a nut from the factory.
In the end the flat might have saved life as he was driving slow and yanked the wheel then instead of on the freeway, in the snow, or maybe offroad in a sticky situation. I could share other stories as well, but this one sums it up for me. IMHO, all LR are
I trust my safety, as well as that of my wife and three kids to Toyota quality.

Beatiful to look at, nicely done on the inside, but without question the biggest POS I have ever owned. Ditto the Discovery. Now very happy with a bullet proof LX470.
