I work for a rover store. I will trade em in every 6 months and never have to maintain it.I sure like the looks of the new Defender and have given it some thought, but early signs on reliability and reparability don't look good. Luxury car makers just can't seem to keep things simple. But hey, it's got a warranty. The real test is whether you'll be willing to keep it after the warranty expires, and what it's worth at that point.
Depends on what you want. Completely different vehicles. The new defender has many cool features for a highway vehicle that you can take on some mild trails. Its kind of a luxury crossover suv similar to a Bronco sport.
