1990 Land Rover Range Rover County 4dr SUV AWD


This 1990 County is my second RR.
The first was a P38 that, while a pleasure to drive, was absurdly prone to failures.
The Classic, on the other hand, is more straightforward and a more fundamentally sound vehicle.
Sure there are niggles here and there, mostly electrical, the Lucas trademark.
The RR Classic has, like many of its owners, an eccentric character; fitted with a factory CD changer but no cup holders or glove box, to give an example.
The styling is iconic and is either immediately recognized or elicits intrigue.
These vehicles often get a bad rap, but with proper care the reliability is relatively high and the driving experience rewarding.

Best Features

Aesthetics, rarity (at least in my neck of the woods), visibility out the wonderfully large windshield, driving position, the versatility to be just at once appropriate for a romp through the mud and the Chateau Marmont valet, cult following and consequently great resources for parts and advice, roughly a tenth of the MSRP these days--lot of machine for the money.

Worst Features

Temperamental Lucas electrics is the most obvious. The overkill security system on the pedestrian tape deck that at present is a joke as far as object of theft. Dealer service is often abysmal; finding a solid indy shop is essential.
