Review of the 2004 Land Rover Range Rover

  • Designed and engineered by BMW, the Range Rover offers an optimum blend of on-road comfort and off-road capability in a stylish and well-trimmed package. If you can afford the price of admission, this is one British SUV that won't disappoint.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Pleasant to drive and ride in on pavement, sumptuous interior, class-leading off-road capability.

  • Cons

    High price, poor reputation for build quality, difficult-to-use stereo and navigation system.

  • What's New for 2004

    For 2004, the Range Rover gets an even more luxurious leather interior; buyers also now have the option of outfitting the vehicle with Contour 14-way electrically adjustable seats. A new limited-edition trim -- the Westminster Edition -- has been added; only 300 of these vehicles are slated for production. Each Westminster Edition Range Rover features pearlescent paint, 20-inch alloy wheels, leather-covered dash and center console areas, rain-sensing windshield wipers, leather Contour seats and an abundance of polished hardwood. This trim level comes in Java Black and Bonatti Grey exteriors.

The most realistic 04 range

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Land Rover Range Rover HSE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)

I purchased my 2004 HSE last year for roughly 13k and I have without question LOVED everything about the vehicle. Comfort, the performance, the overall ride of the vehicle. I've been pleasantly surprised by the gas mileage. Not sure how I would measure by the gallon, but I will say that when I fill up for 75.00 a tank, I can go from central VA to North Jersey on one tank and still have some fumes left over. A full tank gets me roughly 476 miles total for highway driving. For my local 20 minute each way commute to the office and my around town stuff, I can get through an entire week on one tank. Due to lack of characters, I will need to continue in a seperate review.

Simply the best

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Land Rover Range Rover HSE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)

This is my 5th Range Rover and by far the best. I still get that buzz every time I climb into the drivers seat. Comfort is absolutely outstanding, in fact there isn't a seat in the house that is as comfortable. The smooth gear change, build quality, and the envious looks you get from other drivers says it all. Those little extras like heated steering wheel, parking sensors front and rear, and TV make it special. I have the LPG conversion which means that in real terms I get the equivalent of about 40 mpg which is amazing for a car of this size and quality. Quite simply the best 4 x 4 in the world.

Pleasantly suprised...a gem

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Land Rover Range Rover HSE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)

We've owned this car for 3 years now. No major issues to speak of, must have gotten a good one. Only have 71k miles on it, but are looking forward to another 15k or so before upgrading to a newer model. 2004 is a great year with a fantastic engine made by BMW, not like later years where ford took over. Has never let me down reliability wise, took it to Alaska for a year, never slipped, got stuck, or had any kind of hesitation.

Worst car of all time

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Land Rover Range Rover HSE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)

This is the worst car that I have ever owned in my life. 1.) very unreliable, less then 2 weeks after purchasing the car the air suspension went out. Grand total =$2,000 2.) less then 3 months after getting the suspension fixed the transmission went out. Grand total = $6,000 3.) Worst gas mileage on a vehicle I have ever seen I would not recommend this car to my worst enemy, it looks good and is comfortable but thats where the buck stops.




A nightmare wrapped in a

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Land Rover Range Rover HSE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)

This car was one of the best cars I purchased until I hit that 50-60K mark. After I reached 60K it was downhill from there. Had it in the shop countless times because of having to replace the suspension (which I converted to coil instead of replacing the expensive air suspension), had to replace the radiator twice, an alternator (because the coolant from the radiator that leaked caused it to malfunction), a fuel pump replacement, countless brake pad and rotor replacements, and top it off with hard-to-find tires. This used to be a fun vehicle to drive but each time I turn the key i'm worried if i'll need AAA to tow me from the side of the road.




Perfect truck

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Land Rover Range Rover HSE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)

I researched for a while for a new truck to replace my lifted Tahoe. I'm very happpy with the truck. The reliablity is better than I expected. I didn't buy the Range Rover for fuel economy (in the real world driving wife gets 16 I get 22) I bought it for rough roads towing; well almost anything I want really (7000lbs). The audio system is stunning, I cant help but to smile everytime I turn something on. I can't help but to smile every time I think of the range rover. If you do need to take the Range Rover to the dealer for repair or PM. They take very good care of you. My dealer in Cincinnati is excellent! Over all the truck is great of value!
