4.6 hse

Vehicle: 1999 Land Rover Range Rover 4.6 HSE 4dr SUV AWD

The 1999 Range Rover 4.6 HSE has some great advantages and some disadvantages, like most multi-purpose vehicles. Range Rover's were designed to be superior performing off-road vehicles while maintaining the look, feel and ambiance of a full-on luxury vehicle. This is not an easy goal to achieve and for the most part this vehicle achieves all of its lofty objectives. It will drive over terrain that will stop most four wheel drive vehicles and do it with ease and elegance. The 1999 model year was a production year that BMW owned Land Rover, hence you will find a superior engine and electronics but inferior braking system. Like all BMWs you have to change all four rotors when you replace pads

A classic

Vehicle: 1999 Land Rover Range Rover 4.6 HSE 4dr SUV AWD

I bought my Range at a dealer auction back in Aug of 09. It was in exceptional condition when I bought it. Problems: I had dry rot in the air suspension sacs on acct of the prev owner not driving it. About 1500 to swap out for coils beat out the 7k the dealer wanted to replace the susp system. Needed new tires which ran me about 700 and I'm due soon for new brakes and rotors all around for about another 700. I love the car, but I guess I'm getting bored of it quickly. It's a classic and I love it, but not roomy at all and it sucks down gas like it's goin out of style. My service light is on, which is not as bad as the check engine. Def doing better than some other folks who reviewed here.




Urban assault vehicle

Vehicle: 1999 Land Rover Range Rover 4.0 SE 4dr SUV AWD

Owned the RR for 4 years. Never let us down! 83K miles. If you hate to maintain or repair your vehicle, then go get yourself a Toyota. They don't build them like this one any more. Over 1,000 pounds heavier than the new 08's. Best feel of any suv on the market, including the new ones. Best with 18 or 19" rims. But that performance comes at a price. It costs a little more to maintain (about $1,500/yr for maintenance and repairs). The car wont win any races, but you will arrive safe well rested!




Awesome off-road... terrible reliability

Vehicle: 1999 Land Rover Range Rover 4.6 HSE 4dr SUV AWD

I bought this car 2 and a half years ago and 3 days later the engine overheated and blew. I checked the oil and water the day I bought it and the day after and there apparently was no leaks. Driving down the highway the coolant apparently dropped out of the car immediately and I had no warning until the damage was done. All in all I have spent close to 10,000 bucks on repairs and it is not running at the moment. Biggest waste of money of my life. On the other hand if you can afford the upkeep they are a lot of fun off road. My mom and stepdad both drive hummer h2s (yeah sue us hippies) and my range rover will go anywhere they can, and actually can climb better. More luxurious too!




An unmitigated disaster

by on
Vehicle: 1999 Land Rover Range Rover 4.6 HSE 4dr SUV AWD

After purchasing this car in September 2006 for $13.2K with 76K miles on it, I have paid over $8K in repairs for just 12,000 miles driven. The transmission went out and required a complete rebuild ($4K), the air suspension and associated compressor failed ($3K), and various other things electronic in nature failed ($1K+) such as the door locks, a bunch of interior lights and the display panel for the heater. The remote function on the key does not work at all, so the key must be used old fashion style to lock and unlock the vehicle. Just an awful experience compared to my 1994 BMW 540i that has 142K miles on it and has given me no problems except normal wear and maintenance.




Pleasure to drive

Vehicle: 1999 Land Rover Range Rover 4.6 HSE 4dr SUV AWD

I brought this truck in Atlanta, Ga., drove to NYC. Felt like I was driving around the corner. Later a couple codes, misfiring, cost $600 to fix it . After that no problems, strong engine, comfortable, nice features. It is a pleasure to drive, own, etc. For sure high class. Highly recomended.

This is my second Range Rover; I got it just last weekend and I love it! My first one was a 1990 so I'm not alien to Rover problems....


Does anyone know what the deal is with using the access mode every time you park? I also own a 1999 Range Rover, and when I purchased it the dealer he told me to always lower the car when its parked ...
