G-Friend wants a Defender 90

What's the maintenance story on these vehicles?

Are there any good discussion boards to research?

She found one with 110,000m on it in her price range but I'm wondering how reasonable it would be (repair wise and part$) to maintain as a daily driver.

All thoughts welcomed.

its a land rover. not very reliable. they suffer from cracked blocks and various other issues.

My opinion is to stay away from them.

My brother has a 1993 range rover. in the last 3 years he has spent anywhere from $15k in repairs to more like $20k. And he has only put on 45000 miles or so in that time. He bought the car with around 115k on it.
