1995 Land Rover Range Rover County Classic 4dr SUV AWD
Have had this baby since new. While it
is prone to needing repairs for the
oddest things (door latches fail and I
can't get out of the front door!), in
gneral it has not cost all that much
For the first 5 years, it averaged
$35/month in repair/ maintenance
(including oil changes). For the last
few years, it's averaged ~$200-
300/month. Since it's paid for, this
is way less than a car payment (what
can you buy for this?). However, I'm
now on my 6th alternator in the past
year (all replaced under the new parts
warranty). So, it is high maintenance
and aggrevating sometimes, but is not
all that expensive on average.
4wd! No matter what the weather, road
conditions, or terrain this baby can
get through it with aplomb. Very
comfortable, stable, great stereo,
great climate control, great
visibility. Built like a tank and
feels very, very safe.
Engine a bit underpowered; those famed
British complex design & engineering
skills results in odd repairs neded.
Always leaks some fluid. Interior
rattles are aggrevating. Lots of road
noise at moderate to high speed.
Freeway handling is a bit scary until
you get used to it....
