Land Rovers over 10 years old.

TATA has announced it will suspend manufacture of all parts for vehicles over 10 years old. What a way to preserve the past.

In England, where most of the Rangies roam, they do not last longer than 10 years. If there is not a fast profit to be made, TATA want nothing to do with it.
Cheers,

The older Land Rovers tend to last a lot longer than ten years..... Mind you, they are pretty much the same as the ones that they make today :wink:

The Ministry of Defense still runs enormous amounts of them. They are even on active duty still in Afghanistan with the British Army and the RAF.

I can't see the MoD allowing themselves to run out of parts.

No, No. Totally different vehicle. The military does use Land Rovers, but not Range Rovers. That is what we are discussing here. I do agree the the L.R. is much better quality than a R.R. and the spares are still being manufactured.
The alloy body panels and steel wheel arches do not last in a R.R. over ten years with out special care.
Cheers,
D.
