Pickup or 4wd car is a car tax deductible at all?

Ok thanks for all the feedback. I'm leaning towards a mitsi l200 double cab now

If not aware of it Mitsubishi have stopped exporting vehicles to UK and EU but you will be able to get parts for the next 9 years I’ve been told by a parts department. Series 4 and 5 L200 pickups reliable in my experience with just parts going as you might expect for age and if towing heavy loads (front discs and brake pads worn out at 22,000 miles which cost £240 with parts and labour).

4x4, van, 3.5t towing, roof rack for ladders, low depreciation - ended up with a Defender as the weirdly sensible option. No good if you do any mileage though, too bloody uncomfortable. Also I think I was lucky to find a TD5 with only 65k miles and rust free chassis for not outrageous money.

The idea of a Defender 130 with a tipper body and tool locker appeals. But to have faith in it I'd have to do a ground-up rebuild on a galvanised chassis and preferably a Japanese diesel engine as well. All very nice but the cost of that would buy a perfectly good terraced house in Bishop Auckland. Though, I'm not sure I wouldn't rather live in the Defender...

Sniff.

MB OM606, pure mechinical and apparently good for as much as a reliable 500HP, though prob not if towing.

Didn't know that. Looking at articles about also realised I hadn't noticed SAAB quietly go bust. Those spectacles on the 9-3 evidently were a really stupid idea.
