ReviewCars like this actually make you appreciate how cars depreciate. Old Rovers are cheap because repairs are not. The last owner provided the service records and it included many $500 to $1000+ repairs. I paid $2000 in repairs the first month of ownership. However, it's always fun to drive. Things like the horn on the end of the left column lever and clumsy clam shell engine hood remind you that it's not a Honda Accord. Gas mileage is miserable for most cars in the city. You can park creatively. Door dings add to the rugged look. I've had no other unexpected costs in over a year. Avoid any ones with no service history and look out for rust.
Best Features25 year old exterior design. I love the surprising urban utility. Age and wear does not diminish snob appeal when needed.
Worst FeaturesI read this book, Range Rover, the first generation by Taylor and Dimbleby. Land Rover took an eternity to make improvements suggested by their customers when it was in production. It seems futile to raise any now and may actually take away some of the classic Rover's appeal.
