New Car help me decide
Mmm… another sexy estate thread. And as for Subarus, come on, farmers’ cars with a rally special to polish up the performance image 😛
But isn’t the bottom line that if you’ve driven around happily in a Defender, you clearly don’t give a stuff about the car’s dynamic qualities, so you can happily buy just about anything and be mildly impressed…Posted 9 years agoflamejobMember
Allroads are becoming very tempting on the second hand market because all the middle class mummies are trading over to those awful XC90s
I’ve had a Series III and a Disco2 and found the fuel almost bank breaking, especially for raids into Wales, and I found it frustrating that there are so few places you can drive them off road (except in Mallorca; see below)
Despite the fuel thing I do miss the Disco; it was stolen.

is this offroad that any old car could handle just fine?
occasionaly mounting the kerb? :p
as long as you stick with steel wheels and dont cane it, it would have to be considerably more than a rough track to stop most cars
why not consider an estate with air suspension and adjustable all wheel drive?
i think skoda do an octavia with suspension that can be wound up and down, and runs all the drive through the front wheels, until it starts to slip and then puts 40% to the back?
hearsay and fifth gear knowledge here, can you tell?Posted 9 years ago
Dont think you’d get a panda down that. But i do much less off roading now , i havent mentioned that ive also got a mk4 1.8 sri astra that was given to the missus when here lupo died and while not a rocket ship i am not alien to reasonable handling / paced cars. Should i just buy a 325 and a bike rack like everyone else on a scooby[list][code]Posted 9 years agospooky_b329Member
Standards are really slipping around here! No one’s mentioned the Mazda Bongo! MPV/van, 4×4, more refined than a Defender 🙂 Never driven one but it sounds like what your looking for.
There was one on the classifieds… http://www.singletrackworld.com/forum/topic/fs-mazda-bongo-pics#post-6549
And ‘Andy’ mentioned he was selling his a few weeks ago. http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3185/2591396580_94533a38c6.jpgPosted 9 years ago
