Stop being Defamatory, these are not faults, the computers are so advanced that these are actually features - us simpletons in Japanese and American cars (or me in an Austrian built American car) just dont understand how these features workOh Dear. I didn't cause these problems, promise. Don't shoot the messenger!
The screen is so flakey.
You have got to be kiddin... You spend more time looking at a flamin screen than u do looking at the countryside... Why the hell LR thought this was a good idea just escapes me... Talk about taking your eyes off the road...Oh Dear. I didn't cause these problems, promise. Don't shoot the messenger!

I was thinking the same, those guys seem like techno type geeks and they were even having issues navigating around the system ( even when the system is working)You have got to be kiddin...

Your suppose to hop in your 4WD and go bush to get away from all this sort of distracting Technology and get back to Nature... Why would u buy one?? People get all caught up with all this new Tech in cars today, not realising what it is actually doing to them... Everyone forgotten the old "KISS" saying...
Canberra land rover did a test drive trip out there, be why you saw so many. Not sure how many made it back.I saw a heap of defenders in thredbo and surrounds over the weekend. Most drivers were focussed on the screen... I'm sure the novelty wears off at some point during ownership.
LOL like Toyota needs to plant anything - they're already one of the most successful automakers on the planet and hardly have to compete with Land Rover for anything.This guy is nearly as dumb as the other one that has repatriated from South Africa. What a load of rubbish. Obviously has a few cents missing in his head. I have seen a few of his videos and I am unsure if he likes or dislikes the brand. But funnily enough he keeps buying them and then keeps complaining about them. I start to wonder if he is a Toyota "plant" to discredit LR at all costs, or is he a fool (tool) with too much money. My bet is on the latter.
Come on Smitty. You have to admit Land Rover's marketing Department leave no stone unturned in selling the dream. Of course all the Land Rovers made it back home. Why do you think they picked Thredbo?Canberra land rover did a test drive trip out there, be why you saw so many. Not sure how many made it back.
Like I said all along, increasing height increases spring rate which reduces what they call flex and increases wheel lift as well although it's been denied in this thread It's a fact. The Fj of course is live axle rear independent Front and still flex is a hell of a lot better than the soccer bus. The track they've chosen is hardly insane either although they think it's pretty nightmarish it's absolutely nothing out of the ordinary for a fire trail around here I can't wait to see these things going up something difficult.Interesting that they compared a 2006 design to a 2020 design. But it does show low tech with proper suspension travel is just as capable and more comfortable off-road than the latest and greatest.
Interesting how the Defender is lifting wheels at about 12:15 even though the track is almost dead flat. I hope there are sea sick tablets in the glovebox.
Or you could buy a car which by design tries to keeps four wheels on the ground and a has a centre diff lock rather than a million computer calculations to emulate four wheels on the ground.Can you imagine sitting on the side of the track with the manual out reading up on how to get it into the correct setting to tackle the next section of track in front of you only to stop and do the same again when conditions change
Or maybe worse, 10 Million calculations of spaghetti code written by TATA software engineers on $3 per hour. If you know a Software developer from ANZ or CommBank ask them how that turns out, and how many hundreds of millions it took to throw it in the bin and start again after they both realised it was unfixable. LOL. Make sure you have a spare hour to wait for their rant to slow down.Or you could buy a car which by design tries to keeps four wheels on the ground and a has a centre diff lock rather than a million computer calculations to emulate four wheels on the ground.
