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
All weather capability, pneumatic suspension. The most comfortable front seats of any vehicle. Great sound system, fun to drive, comfort for four tall adults & all their equipment.
Better brakes, upgrade to drilled & slotted rotors the 1st time you replace brake pads & rotors.
Wax the car w PTFE marine grade wax 2X per year. Change cabin air filtration every 60K miles. Change oil every 3,500 miles using 20W50 in summer time.
Rotate tires every 5,000 miles.
Be prepared for costly repairs constantly.
