Landrover Defender Td5 110 - South Africa registered - 1999

AFRICA 4X4 CAFE: advice on Self Drive Overland Expeditions to, buying and selling 4x4s in, East and Southern Africa

Make: Landrover
Model: Defender
CC: 2500
Gearbox: Manual
Fuel: Diesel
Country of Registration: South Africa
Year of Registration: 1999
Current Location: Kenya, enroute to Cape Town at around the 27th of December.
KM: 293 000km
Price (ZAR): 155,000 ZAR
Date of last service: The car got serviced every 5000-7000 Km and will be serviced before selling.
History: We bought the car in August 2011 and traveled with it from South Africa up to Kenya and will drive it back now. Service was done every 7000 kms. The previous owner spent over 60'000 ZAR on the car (only labour). All the works have been done in March/May 2010, including:

Reconditioning of the engine, turbo unit and gearbox
Fitting new brake pads, fuel pump, 5 injectors, suspension,
Testing of cylinder leakage and all 5 cylinders are at 100 % etc.
...as he intended to travel to the UK (all receipts are available).

We replaced the probshaft, rearaxels, aircondition, sealed and redid the transfer case and other minor maintenance work as e.g. replacement of the brake pads, wheelbaring.

We are aware that you will find cheaper cars on this website, but there was a lot of money invested into that specific car just one year ago and thus it's a very reliable car. Nearly everything in this car is new or reconditioned, so it's definitely worth the money.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
