Traded my '98 4.6 after one year

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!
