I have been talking with a farmer and he was shocked to find his 02 plate discovery td5 is completely rusted and cannot be repaired. someone told him that this was bad year as Landrover were buying in poor quality steel

I think my wife's 02 TD5 Disco is ok but it doesn't goes off road and we don't have salt on our roads. Land Rover's rust prevention system has been operational at times, spraying diesel and more recently power steerin fluid under the car.
Checked under yours lately Hiawatha?

Only just saw this post WW .
Since October the discovery has had new tyres , a new fuel pump and lines and now a new power steering pump !
Fairly sick of repairs already, the last thing I need is rust !
