I commute in the vehicle on the freeway, and love the height and visibility that I have. The Rover manuvers well on the open road, but pick up can be a problem. Sluggish going up hills. Does well on dirt mountain roads in rain and snow. The AWD is a plus. The cost of driving the car, from gas to repairs to replacement parts is very high. In my 30+ years of driving, I've never had to have my car towed in for repair until my Rover...it's been towed twice. With this vehicle, you must find a reliable, knowledgeable repair facility. This is difficult, even in an urban setting.
Interior quality and the interior roominess is excellent. Can haul furniture, lumber or dogs easily. Seat is very comfortable. After an 8 - 10 hour drive, I get out of the car with no aches and pains. Visibility is very good.
The suspension system with the air bags was a big mistake. I've spent plenty repairing and replacing parts of this system more than once. I've also had trouble with the air conditioning system x 2.
I hate the reliability of this truck.
it breaks down often & repair prices
are ridiculous. When this truck breaks
down, the repair is $2,000.00 on
average. this truck has parts in it
that no other truck has & they all
break down. I put $10,000.00 into this
truck in one year. the blue book value
has plummetted. i can't believe this
truck was once $69,000.00. NEVER BUY
THIS TRUCK OR YOU WILL PAY THE PRICE.
the truck is very comfortable and
looks great. all options are included.
Its not worth it so stay away from
destroy all range rovers. The
discovery model is a lot more reliable
and half the price.
Classic beautiful looks and style, off
roads like a mountain goat,
abysmal gas mileage and outrageous
service costs. Truly English and
eccentric, wouldn’t drive anything else!
The 4.0 and 4.6's are beautiful cars,
with a sleek exterior, and an interior
quality and style that is unmatched by
any other SUV. However, The 4.0's are
slightly underpowered, and even the
4.6's cannot match some of the
competition. While some have criticized
Range Rover for mechanical issues, the
4.0/4.6 series seems to have most
issues rectified. These are solid,
Terrific Stereo, most comfortable seats
of any car, plush interior
Bigger engine! AC system is a bit
fussy to set, and does not immediately
blow hot or cold.
