We sold our Toyota land cruiser, and brought a second hand Rover from the UK, we have had her for two months and she has already left us on the side of the road for 7 hours, and here in Africa thats no joke! 4X4 is great, on sand and rocks, comfort and power hard to match, yet i feel her reliability is very poor, i do loads of off roading even when on roads and for a change i dont have a sore back but im left tense any way at the thought of even making it to our destination.....any sugestion on up spares or things we can twig to help her cope here in summer eg: her cooling system! as it was our water pump bearing that collapsed and nearly sent our fan crashing into out radiator, in Africa!!
Great 4x4, great sppen and power.
Heating systems, and more dealerships in Southern Africa.
My 1998 Range Rover is the perfect car for me. When you think performance you cannot think about handling because it can be alittle sluggish. However that sluggish ride is made up for by the vehicles incredible comfort. When you think performance for this vehicle you absoultely must think of limitless terrain that you can navigate through in this SUV. This vehicle is comfortable, it has an incredible sound system, it filters the air outside before it comes inside, it goed up and down by the push of a button, and is built like a tank. You cannot beat the quality of this car, and most importantly you cannot get more luxury for the money! It is an excellent value!
I love the air suspension and large leather seats. Incredible leg room, and great visability for parking and high way driving. Most importantly, this vehicle is incredible off road! I can go anywhere in this vehicle, and still turn heads when I drive into town! I love it!
The only improvement I think you could make is to buy some new tires. The stock tires are miserable, I think that Nitto makes a great all around tire for this vehicle.
owned for six years.
It's been towed probably a dozen times
with various different failures.
Stranded me late at night or along the
freeway at the most inoportune times.
Cupholders poorly placed..will not hold
onto a beverage can around sharp
The seatbelts in the back are poor (one
even broke). Difficult with child car
On a positive side, the leather has
stayed very nice and it seems almost
resistant to door dings (only one in 6
- Leather upholstery
- Hydraulics to raise and lower the car
- Very comfortable
We purchased this vehicle 1998 model
HSE with 72k. It was a choice of the
ML320 or HSE, The HSE is a far better
equiped and road competent vehicle. I
love the road manners and the off road
ability. The Seating is exceptional.
The stereo had some problems, the tire
are not readily available at you local
tire distributor or BJ's.
Overall the vehicle is fine. We have a
1992 range that I am rebuilding the
transmission with 140k. Range Rover for
ever and ever.. sounds like a rap!!
Chrome Wheels, Piping and and asthetic
design to the overall vehicle exterior
I owned a '98 RR 4.6 (that I bought
used w/36K miles on it) for one year.
Gas mileage was awful--about 12
mpg. And about 6 months after I
bought the RR, things started to go
wrong. Nothing major, just the A/C
control, two stereos, the sunroof, etc.
There was a 2 month time period
wherin the truck was taken for one
repair or another at least once a
week! I was without a stereo for most
of that 2 months. And the 36,000 mile
service cost me $1000.
I traded the RR in 6 months before
the warranty expired--by then I was
just too apprehensive about owning
a Land Rover w/o a warranty. Oh, &
did I mention the high depreciation of
Great looks; nice if quirky interior.
Built like a British tank (except for
moving or electrical parts).
Gas mileage. Handling (is ok, but not
great). And most of all, reliability!
