LOL i know it's not a hardcore Landy 90, however it's an option with a long warranty for the wife, and it doesn't seem to get too bad reviews?

my father was actually going to buy one in France. he was standing in the dealership, said to the guy, I'll take this one here, pay you cash/debit card right now. Dealership sales guy says (in french) "oh, if you can come back later that would be great, I'm just about to go on my lunch break"...


needless to say, he didn't come back!...ah, the French:rofl:

Same gearbox and transmission as the Nissan X Trail,

Goes OK but feels a tad underpowered, soundproofing is notgreat, the radios not marvellous, heating is mediocre.

Getting about 45mpg running around, 55 mpg plus on motorways

OK off road,

pretty good review for something cheaper than an S&B PM11!

Aren't they made up of Renault :( and Nissan parts? I know someone who had a test drive and wasn't that impressed.
Like you say quite cheap and long warranty :D.

I suppose the question for me is how they are going to stand up in the long term, cheap to buy new but I suspect the resale value will be poor, especially if it suffers from early corrosion or parts or reliability fail.

When you think it will probably be used like a mobile skip / butchers bucket / dog kennel, whats not to like at that price ?

I had a quick look a few months ago and the prices rise quite rapidly when you go for 4 wheel drive and the diesel engine and any kind of spec (i.e. things one has come to expect and are as standard on other vehicles) so it might not be such a bargain. Also I feel it is a bit underpowered and that could be frustrating. Still an interesting option though...

Very nearly pulled the trigger on one but it was too small as the family and dog car. You can extend the warranty to 7 years!

Owned by Renault, with renault running gear( or nissan as they are owned by renault) Don't think you can go wrong for the money and warranty....

Have a Look at the Skoda Yeti, 2 litre diesel pulled like a train insurance is very reasonable, it's economical has a massive good boot, and 4x4, VW engine and running gear basically a Tiguan with a different body plus you can really fling it around on twisty road. Servicing is every 20,000 and so far seams reliable and well made.

It hasn't got a big boot and neither did my Citroen Grand Picasso, but my crew cab Renault Trafic however DOES have a big boot!

True but with the seat folded forward you can still get a 1m cubed rubble sack in the back with space around it with out to much both.

couple of them around town here. I like the looks of them and the folks seem to like them real well. Guy I sometimes hunt with has a 2wd version and zooms around about everywhere in it. Had to push a time or two to get the frt wheels to a little traction, but still does fine.

If it aint Jap its crap , residual value should be a serious consideration , better to buy a used Hi Lux or L200 for the same money ,then no one can laugh at you.
