Great vehicle, nothing else like it.

It's been a decent truck. Got it a little over a year ago and was a little concerned about the decision, but went ahead and did it. NO REGRETS! Very well built, feels like you are commanding a luxurious cruise ship down the road in your captain's chair! Visibility is terrific! It leaks, get used to it... Recently drove a 2002 blazer. They don't even compare. Drives like a truck and is a bit of a slug, but is smooth as silk and gives you a feeling while driving it, that I cannot explain, and that cannot be replicated in any other car. Rovers are for enthusiasts and require more maintenance than usual, do it smart (don't take it to the dealership) and cost of ownership is fairly low.
Visibility is wonderful! you can see everything, its like being in a control tower! The mannerisms of it. The overall feeling of the vehicle, everything is heavy duty and purposeful. None of that fancy plastic chrome you see on other cars. A very simple and elegant architecture. VERY good off road!
None, maybe a sportier feel... That was fixed on the new mark III rovers.
