Am I the only Rover owner that doesnt have a single leak? Have had my truck for over 2 years and Ive not once needed to add any fluids. I check them all weekly, at least, and change them on the usual intervals. Should I actually be worried that nothing leaks?

Oh yea, almost forgot.... knock on wood.

Honestly...as long as the castings aren't screwed up your truck shouldn't leak with properly installed new genuine seals. How long it will go without leaking is another story...

not at all Kent - my first rover (94D90) never leaked a drop! Of course, my next three righted this universal rift in cheeky form...

Obvious fraud the Rover is in Australia therefore it looks upside down here.

My Disco leaks only because I knicked the rear main seal and my RR leaks from the front cover, I think its cracked, leaked on the old motor, leaks on the new one, same front cover. I consider those owner errors not inherent faults with my LR's..

Love the Arles. It's on Craigslist for $25,500 but eBay for $27,000 BIN. It doesn't look that bad. It was a CA truck before coming to NYC and being stolen in 2011 (Theft Recovery reported on the title). 215/500 - SALDV3288SA977772. We used to see an NYU kid with an Arles blue SW, but I don't think the timeline works, as it says it only came out here as of 2011 and we've seen it around for longer than that. There is another Arles blue guy from NYC on this board if I recall, though.
