Land Rover are the only car manufacturer who do not do any new model testing. What they actually do is release a model and then use all of the data from warranty jobs world wide to improve on the next model. Data from the series 1 land rover troop carrier is currently being collated to find a few improvements for the series 3 discovery. The back seat passengers could not see out of the windows when the car is full of people so a suspended television set will become standard so as these passengers will not get any more car sickness. The turning circle of 37 metres has been reduced to 25 metres for the series 2 discovery thanks to the use of smaller ball joints. The electricall system now has insulation in the defenders so as the automatic smoke dispensor in the rear tail light enclosure does not burn the car out when the front electric fan is turned on. The removable front seat cusions in the series 2 utes have been replaced with fixed hi absorbant padded seats so that people touring in them on round Australia trips can urinate while sitting due to the fact that the top speed of this model is 70 kms per hour and that it takes a lot longer to 'get there'. All of the oil leaks detected in the series 2 Discoveries have been deliberately put in as a permanent flowing rust inhibiter for the steel in the body. A fuel gauge has been made standard in the new Rangies for environmental reasons. Any rattles and squeeks have been left in as a warning to pedestrians for when driving around school crossings. I am sure that you will love the car. Enjoy the stiff gearbox. It will last a lifetime.

The writer forgot to say that the holes for rain to leak in had been carefully positioned so that the dust that entered in the lower holes, would be washed out the same holes when it rained!

Gee yes I think everyone should feed the troll... Nobody could be that dumb to believe this.
