    Which Landrover Defender would be good to buy and fairly easy
    to learn how to work on for someone who never really worked on
    cars?



    Thank You

    what is your budget
    see you are located in NY?
    what do you have available there?

    Land Rovers never die, they simply become organ donors!

    Sounds like you want a hobby, a landy should keep you busy, buy a workshop manual it will show you step by step, even though our british bretheren had some peculiar ideas about mechanics, defenders aren't overly complex, Landyluver should be able to tell you which will be the best mauals
    If it was fun to break, fix it and break it again.

    Yip a 300 Tdi would be ideal, they are getting quite scarse and generally have high milage so would need regular maintenance anyway. They are great engines and if looked after will last a lang time.
