    Default Total Justification!!!

    People have questioned me as to why I bought a 4x4, including my neighbour who has a new Jaguar XF.

    This morning I got my answer, he tried reversing up hill his shared drive, with 7" of snow on the ground and RWD. Everytime he went to reverse the car went forwards!

    So I attach him to my Freelander 2 with a tow rope, which when in position was also pointing up hill, put the terrain responce into snow mode and with considerable ease pulled him up his drive, without him using any power!!!

    It was so cool!!! In know, little things and little minds

    o a 4x4 makes perfect sense for 3 days a year!!!

    Excellent, i used to work with Land Rovers. The Freelander 2 is a good car. And the 2.2 TD4 is surprisingly good on diesel with loads of power!! Glad it came in usefull!
