1996 Land Rover Range Rover 4.6 HSE 4dr SUV AWD


Owning this vehicle is a combination of highs and lows. Overall, we hate the RR most just after we've paid another $2K repair bill. We love it shortly before it breaks again. I'd never buy another. We bought it as a family hauler right before the birth of our second boy. It's done OK there - hauling us to Tahoe a few times, never stranding us anywhere, plenty of space inside. However, its resale value has dropped so quickly that we're upside down on the loan and can't sell without paying $$. The controls - especially the power window switches - are infuriatingly obtuse. The owners manual is more than 200 pages, and you have to read every one.

Best Features

Feels secure, especially in bad weather. Great interior appointments put other SUVs to shame -- beautiful wood, piped leather, rich plastic on the dash. Quintessentially british! The adjustable suspension is great and makes it easy to get in/out.

Worst Features

Reliability and repair costs leave much to be desired. Air conditioning, suspension sensors, power brake booster - pretty much everything has been replaced.
