OK we might have to think about changing the old Cherokee. It's certainly not good on fuel being a 4.0L petrol and the rear Ltd slip diff is making more nosies due to a previous owner not adding the correct additive for the clutches after a re-build.
So with MOT due in 2 months we had better start considering the options.
What ever we get must be able to do normal car stuff and be comfortable for the two OAP's so normal landies are out. They also cost far too much.
A neighbour has a diesel Freelander which might suit our needs we do about 7-9k per year so not heavy usage, tow the small mower trailer and box trailer on occasion and it does as my shoot transport when needed and copes with the non treated roads around here in winter.
We are restricted to budget which causes problems to we are looking at about 98-2001 vintage ones.
As I know little to nowt about them apart from the head gasket problems that the petrols ones suffered, having picked up a few whilst driving a 6.4T slide and tilt for Dorking Autos (M23/M25) some years back and info or advice appreciated.
