Most 4×4 owners come in for a lot of stick, but TV car consumer champion Quentin Willson told why he is still a real Defender of the faith.
While most of snow-blighted UK froze to a halt, Quentin relied on his Land Rover Defender with its ‘towering height, lockable differentials and knobbly tyres’ could venture where even Range Rovers feared to tread.
He told readers of his Sunday Mirror column: ‘Unlike the rest of the country, I didn’t have a single day off during the recent blizzards, snowdrifts and black ice.
‘While the nation froze to a halt, I was strobing up and down the M40 and tooling around London in my Land Rover Defender.
‘Towering height, lockable differentials and knobbly tyres meant I could venture where even Range Rovers feared to tread. I never felt I was slumming it either – with seven seats, ABS, PAS, traction control, electric windows, air con and 30mpg, it proved itself to be a posh and practical asset.
‘Hope I don’t have to wait another 18 years for the next arctic adventure.’
etyres is delighted to have been singled out by Quentin in the past for offering a great online mobile fitting service with prices that beat the high street depots – and we offer a great line in 4×4 tyres!
