Review

I love this car and hate it all at the same time. I blew the engine at about 80k. Total cost for a decent rebuild with new everything ran about $4600. Yes it is expensive to own but so are most European cars. Germans build great cars but when they break, good bye savings. Great thing about this little beauty is that the parts are plentiful, average priced and easy to install. This dominates off road I have gone with Jeeps and Toyotas that were modified but this thing tackles almost all the obsticles on mostly stock equipment.


Best Features

Interior is cushy, A/C is cold, easy to fix and find parts. Expensive for heavy upgrades...just a tad with accessories. Off roading mad-machine, easy to jerry-rig stuff. You can drop numerous engines in this thing that work with the tranny great.


Worst Features

Cup holders are ill placed, small do-hickeys break easily (same in all cars). Fuel economy is lackluster. Underpowered for weight. Wish I could have found a diesel one.

Review

The truck is bad on gas but great every way else. Reliable, tough and fun. Great value used. still easy to mistake as a much newer truck. Built like a tank, and super comfortable on long trips. A true adventure vehicle.. and the poshness of a luxury british vehicle. Others may go faster but in a land rover you can go anywhere.


Best Features

Jump Seats, dual sunroofs, integrated trailor hitch, aluminum/stainless steel construction. heated seats I could go on.


Worst Features

Seating position makes for taller drivers having to cock neck to seetraffic lights. fuel economy, you need a small arab country to keep it going.

Review

This car is a tank. A lot of people complain about the maintenance but realisticly if you bring it to the dealer for check-ups and do routine maintenance(oil change, ect) it will never die.


Best Features

Dual moon roofs, Jumper seats for freinds luxury reliability


Worst Features

more positive attitude about it from critics

Review

Iv'e had My Rover for about 4 months, its a great vehicle if you don't mind paying a nice chunk of change for repairs or you are handy and have the time to fix it yourself.MY SUGGESTION buy a rover that has a warrenty.If you plan to go off the beaten path with your rover expect things to wear out more quickly OBVIOUS advice, but i learned the hard way and i am kicking myself now. The seats sit higher than many other SUV's allowing you to have great visibility,and relitively little blind spots, something uncommon to many other SUV's. Overall good ride if you can afford to upkeep it, and quench its ever present thirst for 93 octane fuel.


Best Features

Off road capabilities very confortable high postioning gives you ultimate in visibility. extremely comfortable(get heated leather seats) Dual moon roofs, and dual climate controls. Nice sound system too even for the non upgraded one


Worst Features

an option for a turbo diesel engine put rover sales off the charts. when cupholders are in use....you find you must move your coffee to turn up the heat.
