1999 Land Rover Range Rover 4.6 HSE 4dr SUV AWD

Review

I have had endless problems including a failed airbag, a check engine light that won't go off (even after service at a dealership), dead battery, many lights burning out, a complete lockdown by the security function causing the starter to disengage and requiring a tow to the dealership to reset the computer, and a complete failure of the transmission at only 81,000 miles that cost $2,700 rebuild. Total repair costs $4,300 after just 5K miles/6 months of ownership. Remaining problems: door locks and alarm don't work, as well as the latch for the door to the gas tank, the disc changer for stereo recently died, and button to open back cargo door stopped working last week.

Favorite Features

Styling is cool, 4WD mode is great in the mud and snow, high beam headlights work well on country roads, great visibility. Decent power and acceleration on the road, and a reasonably comfortable ride for an SUV.

Suggested Improvements

Make a vehicle that is more dependable and reliable! My wife doesn't trust it for a ride to our weekend house in the Catskills because she thinks we'll be stranded on the NY Thruway. Everything seems to fail on this car -- so pathetic for a $68K vehicle. Fuel economy also fairly poor at 15 mpg.
