1997 Land Rover Range Rover 4.0 SE 4dr SUV AWD


Review

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.


Best Features

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.


Worst Features

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.

Review

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.


Best Features

the truck is very comfortable and looks great. all options are included. Its not worth it so stay away from this truck


Worst Features

destroy all range rovers. The discovery model is a lot more reliable and half the price.

Review

Classic beautiful looks and style, off roads like a mountain goat, mechanical/electrical nightmare, abysmal gas mileage and outrageous service costs. Truly English and eccentric, wouldn’t drive anything else!


Best Features

Beautiful leather interior


Worst Features

Engine needs more power

Review

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, reliable vehicles.


Best Features

Terrific Stereo, most comfortable seats of any car, plush interior


Worst Features

Bigger engine! AC system is a bit fussy to set, and does not immediately blow hot or cold.
