Alas Poor Boris… aka… DEATH of a Landrover

Boris the Landrover has broken down one final time. This mornings refusal to start (again!!!) was the (yet another!!!) final straw! NOTE ADDED MAY 2014: A few people have asked me how I get him to start each time. It’s simple, but very annoying, embarrassing and just plain irritating. Simply pop the bonnet (American translation […]

I am angrier than a very Angry Bird. Boris the Landrover is once again proving that it can refuse to start in nearly every State in the USA… What makes it worse is that last Friday – I just got it back from the Garage who happily told me the problem was fixed. “A new […]

Caveat Emptor with Boris the Landrover LR3

Just like Lazarus, Boris lives! After last weeks engine death – well kind of choking spluttering whimpering suicide – I waited for the AAA recovery truck and had Boris truck to a local garage that foolishly admitted to working on Landrover. All the time thanking the Gods that I signed up for AAA car recovery […]

So, the Boris the bloody annoying LR3 has been getting worse and worse… it’s at the stage now where I just dont trust it to drive anywhere. When it does start, I just leave it running on the street if I have to go into any stores… because there is simply no guarantee that it […]

Boris the Landrover break down in the rain

The bugger got me again at Lunchtime today.. in the rain… which is pretty rare in Charleston SC… rain that is… not Boris refusing to start (which is very very common). The only bright side to this damp tale of sorrow… is using the mysterious ‘remove spark plug 1’ technique to fire the engine up… […]
