Owners of Discovery 3s have a 62 per cent chance of breaking down in a year, according to research carried out for Warranty Direct. Models made between 2004 and 2011 were most likely to suffer problems, said motoring company Warranty Direct. Next in the list were Renault Grand Scenics from 2004 to 2009 then 1994 to 2004 Mercedes V-Class cars. Older cars were among the most reliable, the analysis of 50,000 breakdown policies found. ‘Not all older cars break down all the time, as long as you don’t pick the wrong one,’ said Duncan McLure Fisher, of Warranty Direct.
And, if anyone cares, Katie Price, also known as Jordan, has just bought a heavily customized Range Rover Vogue finished in a hot pink paint job. The Range Rover was refinished by Project Kahn in Bradford West Yorkshire. The garish vehicle has the number plate KPII LEO as a tribute to Jordan's new boyfriend Leandro.
