1998 Land Rover Range Rover 4.0 SE 4dr SUV AWD


Review

Admittedly one of the most refined and capable luxury SUVs made...when it's not in the shop. Most common trouble spot is the air suspension system, which will leave you stranded when it fails. The complex electrical system is British...not high in the reliability category. Don't expect much warmth from the heated seats, if they're even working. They're prone to early failure. Make sure that you do not own this vehicle without a warranty as the average trip to the shop is in excess of $1,000, not including a rental car and flatbed.


Favorite Features

Very capable in the snow and ice. This vehicle will go through absolutely anything! I've personally forded 18" of water with no problem, although I'm sure it will do more.


Suggested Improvements

The 2000 model year and later have improved upon most of the trouble spots and are much more reliable.

1998 Land Rover Range Rover 50th Anniversary 4dr SUV AWD


Review

Having owned my 50th anniversary Range Rover for 5 months and about 5,000 miles, I can't say how pleased I am so far. It's a joy to drive, rides like you're riding on air, and has given me absolutely no problems. I expected the worst after reading about all the problems Land Rovers have but can say that this vehicle is the most capable, fun car I've owned and I've owned everything from a 300ZX to an Infiniti. You feel like a king driving the Range Rover and the visibility is second to none. The only thing I don't like is the fuel economy, but is to be expected for such a heavy duty truck.


Favorite Features

Comfort. Visibility. How fun it is to drive.


Suggested Improvements

Fuel economy.

Vehicle

1998 Land Rover Range Rover 4.6 HSE 4dr SUV AWD


Review

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. Very unreliable. Cupholders poorly placed..will not hold onto a beverage can around sharp turns. The seatbelts in the back are poor (one even broke). Difficult with child car seats. On a positive side, the leather has stayed very nice and it seems almost resistant to door dings (only one in 6 years)


Favorite Features

- Leather upholstery - Hydraulics to raise and lower the car - Very comfortable

Review

I am a long time RR owner and have never experienced any problems. Dealerships charge thru the nose for service.. Local mechanics can do the same thing for much cheaper..


Favorite Features

All attitude.. This car is mean on and off road with a slice of pedigree.


Suggested Improvements

cupholders aren't designed for the american diet.
