Well, I love my 94 D90 five speed...
Alot more fun than my 200 BMW.528I
with its stupid " steptronic" transmission my husband upsolutly
had 2 have and doesnt even know how to use
kinda like me and that dif-lock
ALSO " it depents a great deal on how someone took care of the vehicle!!!!
A 94 may last you alot longer if it has been properly maintained and keept, unlike
an 97 thats been trashed and run in the ground!!!!!
Every Defender, Disco or freelander is unique there are ALOT of things that
could go wrong on ANY OF THEM reguardless of year.
You do the math...use your'e OWN judgemant!
Best of luck
Christine

Automatics are a bore. The torque converters siphon off power and response. They shift at inopportune times and make four wheeling about as much fun as "safari" ride through a theme park. That said, they're great for folks with disabilities or arthritis.

Truth is lots of people grew up with auto's and never really grew accustomed to shifting. Mine's a daily driver and I like shifting. Much nicer when driving on gradients. Nothing worse than a heavy truck whose auto keeps shifting around for a gear that doesn't exist.

Lucas, you could have sold all the stuff you won at the raffle and bought that bad boy. 18K for that!? What a bargain, in deed! I don't know if I should feel bad for the seller or happy for the buyer. That's a rare find. Of course, with 2 D-90's, I stoped looking at prices a while ago.

Damn! That was a steal! I picked mine up for $25K two years ago - 97, Arles, 75K miles. This one would have been nice for a backup!
