Buyers Beware

The speedometers in Defenders can go bad, some have been replaced for legitimate reasons and paperwork should be able to back up the actual mileage of any Defender. Here is an easy way to spot a replaced odometer in a 1993 NAS Defender 110 or in the 1994-1995 NAS Defender 90s.

The font (typeface) on the odometer (miles driven) display is different on the newer replacement units. The image above shows a stock and correct 1993-1995 Defender 110/90 odometer.

Compare that to this speedo that shows low mileage. You can see the font on the odometer is quite different. This is a replacement speedometer. Buyers beware.

Thanks to Mike over at ECR.
