Things to Look For in a Used LR3
By OoltewahLR3 on
Vehicle2005 Land Rover LR3 SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
ReviewI bought this LR3 in 2008 when gas prices skyrocketed, and everyone was dumping their SUVs for better fuel economy. I bought a 2005 LR3 V8 with 30k miles for $20k with a full bumper to bumper warranty. Once I took it off- road with the dealership mechanics, I fell in love with it. I don't care that the sunroof leaks - at least not that much. If you buy one, make sure to buy it during a rain storm and drive it aggressively. That's when you'll notice a leak problem if there is one. Also - look for signs of leakage below the VIN number plate. There is a piece of paper below it (likely from the factory). If it is discolored, it is probably from one of those crummy sunroof drains.
Best FeaturesAdjustable suspension and terrain programs. I am staying at the Biltmore this summer to take the off-road course. My wife calls it our Armageddon SUV. My 3 year old called it "Supercar" on an off-roading outing.
Worst FeaturesFix the water leaks from above. It doesn't leak during crossing 3-foot streams, so why should it leak from the roof during rain?
