2004 Land Rover Range Rover HSE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)
I have owned this car for two years and it has been a love hate relationship. beautiful to look at, stunning interior, fast and nimble for how big it is. The problems come from ALL THE PROBLEMS. Been in the shop 10 times now, had to replace the suspension at a cost of 4k and still have problems, the sound system and navigation regularly short out, the engine coolant reservoir blew and had to be replaced, the seals are all starting to leak and it is very noisy at highway speed, and the front parking sensors no longer work. Not to mention the people at the dealership are extremely rude and told me that it is pretty old and reaching end of life. its only 5 years old!
Beautiful inside and out, amazing sound system, and extremely fun to drive. Handles bad weather with ease. 10 inch snow banks with ease.
Improve quality. this car was 75000 new and it costs almost 2k a year just to fix problems. factor in 150 oil changes, 12mpg, 1k for new tires, 1k for new brakes this car just is not worth the headache.
