Loved the car, hated the maintenance

I love Land Rover, but this SUV ended up costing me lots in maintenance. New radiator, gear box, engine lights, etc. I spent over $300/month. Might have gotten a lemon, but I love the car. I'm getting a new one and after talking with other owners, might have been a fluke. Very expensive cars to upkeep for parts. Awesome in bad weather, cross my fingers on the next one.
Look of the vehicle, diversity, view while driving, and capability.
Cheaper parts. More durable with proper maintenance. Irritating things like back sprayer for rear windshield not working, window noise, and check engine lights. Ridiculous part costs. Reliability wasn't poor.
