SynopsisThe Series Land Rover was conceived as a utility vehicle for farmers; one that could be repaired and maintained with the minimum of specialist tools. The early models rapidly built up a worldwide reputation for rugged capability that led to them being adopted by police forces in at least 37 countries.The book follows the step by step development of the marque, so you are aware of each model?s individual strengths and weaknesses. Choose your preferred model, then be professionally guided through important aspects of the retail market, with clear instructions on where and how to check for potential problems before you buy. Evaluate your potential purchase against an exhaustive checklist, learn how to test-drive it with confidence, and be forewarned about running and maintenance costs.With over 100 color photographs carefully integrated into the concise and informative text, this really is like having a marque expert in your pocket.
