How do the ogoing maintenance costs of the Discovery compare to the diesel Landcruisers and patrols
Hello again
The ongoing maintenance costs are reasonable. Boiled down over say 50,000km - no worse. Some of those scheduled maintenance costs for Landcruisers make your eyes water.
I am a little leary of the Nissan especially with the D40 motor and timing chains.
The parts availability in remote locations is probably going to be superior for the cruiser but if you have your house on your back a few days wait for a part is neither here nor there.
The diesel engine is tough. It's fuel economy (when not towing) is outstanding.
Have a look on the landrover club web site for the discussions about them.
I am biased to be honest I suppose but I do think they stand out as a superior vehicle
