Review

Before buying a Land Rover, you should set up a trust fund in order to finance the parts. An oil change alone will run $60. The regulator on the rear passenger window broke...$330. The ignition lock assembly just broke...parts are $415. It is mechanically unreliable. It leaks oil like a sieve. A lifter is ticking. My mechanic says he could fix it but it would be around $1,500. The A/C compressor pulley bearings are starting to squeal. I can't bring myself to price a new clutch and bearing assembly for that. It gets a vibration at about 65mph. Don't get sucked in by the stylish exterior. There's a lemon underneath it.


Favorite Features

It does perform well off-road. It looks cool. That's about it.


Suggested Improvements

Make it in the US and put a Chevy emblem on front.

Review

just becouse a Land Rover is a unique machine doesnt mean that it should be so poorly engineered and built a small collision will cost u dearly. The transfer case had to be replaced at 50k along with the cam & lifters. Along with various steering problems. The worst is the front wheel bearings have become loose and even after tightening by the dealer and cause strong vibration & violent shaking of the steering wheel when going above 60 on the freeway, it could very possibly result in a collision I wouldnt want this poor example of British engineering to become a leathal weapon !!!!! They are only good for scrap, and this is comming from a Brit..


Favorite Features

The exterior design is great and it is unstoppable offroad.


Suggested Improvements

Burn the interior, put in a propper engine to pull its own weight and god forbid possibly a boat larger than a rowboat.

Review

OK, so I bought it used. But unless the previous owner was the Torture Test- driver from Car and Driver magazine, it shouldn't have been this bad. Constantly stalled, leaked, rattled, shook, squealed, and just plain broke down. I was going to trade it in to get a new car, but it won't stay out of the mechanic's long enough to get to a dealer. Mileage sucks, tires and breaks wear out way too fast, and it costs a fortune to fix (my mechanic just bought a castle). Anyway, it sucks, flat out. By something--anything--else.


Favorite Features

Driving it from the mechanic's to my house.


Suggested Improvements

Oh please. Let's just say everything mechanical for the sake of space.
