A classic

by on
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

by on
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.




Fantastic ride, glad its gone

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

This SUV, by far, had the best ride out of all the SUV's I have owned. Great feel from the steering wheel, and very smooth over the road. The large windows is what sold me on the truck in the beginning, compared to the Explorer,Grand Cherokee and Pathfinder I had in the past. Good power from the 4.6L. Strong brakes. The bad: What a repair nightmare. The air suspension would fail every other month. On 1 trip for service they found over 40!! trouble codes. Front axle went at 12000 miles. 2 head gaskets relaced. Both front bearing/hub/ABS assemblies. major oil leak and the list goes on. This one SUV had more issues than all my other combined. Even with the issues, I'd get another.
