Fantastic ride, glad its gone

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.
Nice sounding stereo system. Large windows and high seating position.
I should have known this truck would be prone to electrical issues. Back to the days of the MG, the British just can not get it right.
