Thanks for the heads up, I was looking at the 2.8 model as an option. 

I think mine is 18 plate. It went back to dealership within 6 months for corrosion. 
 

Tgey had to send it to Southampton because they couldn’t do it on site. 
 

Id pointed out the areas I could see. When it came back from Southampton and I got under the ramp at the dealership, they had done the areas I had previously pointed out but left all the other very obvious areas....

 

Talk about muppets!

 

I think early wax oil is the only viable alternative but it is shocking that it should be needed.

This . Get the hose and nozel and spray it inside the chassis rail as well .

Richard Grosvener  Plunkett Ernle Earle Drax, Yeah 2nd battalion 2 company recce plt for most of my time. Welly barracks  to Otterburn in series 3 ffr petrols kitted as per pic is one of my scarred in Land Rover memories, the drive through London was always a laugh but it pissed  down the entire journey thereafter. In fact if I remember rightly it pissed down every day we were at Otterburn  as well.

Otterburn, the Gateway to Hell! I drove a 2 series long wheel base from Bovington to Otterburn with a horsebox, 13 and a half hours.

If you go down that rout can highly recommend a place in Tavi. Had my old 09 plate Hilux done there. Took it back for a free inspection recently and its still spot on  


Waxoyling is clear or black liquid that protects your car chassis against stones, water and salt and prevents corrosion. It...

Before I bought my '19 Ranger, I looked at an L200 in Newcastle. Pne local owner from new, 18 plate, less than 20,000 miles on the clock. Looked great topside. Crawled underneath and it was orange brown everywhere. Not a trace of black paint left. Touch the chassis and rust flakes fell to the floor. I doubt it would have made it to 30K without holes somewhere. It was definitely headed for an advisory at its next MOT. 

 

The Ranger I bought was pretty good underneath so I had it waxoyled before i bought it. 

Still the odd spot where the orange has crept in so I'm going to take it to these people next month:

Prices start at £650 so it's probably going to cost £800+ but it lasts several years.

As an ex squaddie whom started off on series 3 21/4 petrols then swapped to the first generation of army NA 90s and 110s,  then whom for  some reason bought an ex welsh water 110 hardtop once in civvy street I’m scarred for life with the Land Rover experience. 

And how many of them had sump pan corrosion? Case proved.

This is all shocking, chassis corrosion is a solved problem, shouldn't happen on any modern vehicle. I've a 14 plate Volvo, not a spot of rust on it.

Agreed!

 

Youd be excused for thinking the manufacturers don’t actually want their vehicles to last longer than 5 years. 
 

The (only) time I regretted letting the 110 go in favour of the Hilux was when I lightly bumped a granite wall with the hind ¼ of the Hilux and it folded up like a coke can.  The 110 wouldn’t even have noticed the impact....
