My LR3 was a heartbreaker. I just traded it in after only 18 months of use. In that time it cost me nearly $1,700 at the dealer, and it was looking to need nearly another $1,200+ in work. Air compressor died, keyless entry died, rocker mouldings fell off regularly, front axle bearing bad, undiagnosed HDC fault, pass door lock died. This in a vehicle with 62,000 miles on it. I average 20k miles a year and had more problems in 15k on this vehicle than any other vehicle I've owned! If you can stand the maintenance, this is an awesome vehicle. I almost kept it.
Exterior styling, interior styling, great visibility, good power, luxurious feel.
Fix the reliability!!! I would love another Land Rover, but I won't even look until reliability comes way up! Some problems may be with a first production year, but seriously! Reliability, reliability, reliability.
