I'm 17 and when my parents asked me what I wanted for my first car, I said a Range Rover. With a confused look in their face, I assured them that price would be in our budget. I found my Rover a few miles away for a great price. Ever since I drove it home, I've had nothing more than pure joy driving it. I've driven it nearly 2000 miles in the past few months and it has been reliable and performed better than I had ever expected. Even on longer distant trips, I haven't got so much as a hiccup from the 4.2 L V8. The gas isn't as bad as one would think (up to 20mpg on the highway)/ This is a car that I would recommend to anyone.
I bought this Rover for Pheasant hunting in norhern NH.I can get 4 guys, two labs, and lots of gear in this truck. It's ride is smooth on and off road. I have the warn winch bumber, so nothing stops us. It has been reliable and fun! I have had 2 of these and I will try to find another pre- 1995 when it's time.
Bought used with 30000 miles on it and have used as primary vehicle ever since. This one of 5 Rovers in the family and everyone loves them. Only selling because of job...vehicle is too big for many palces I visit so have had to downsize.
Cars like this actually make you appreciate how cars depreciate. Old Rovers are cheap because repairs are not. The last owner provided the service records and it included many $500 to $1000+ repairs. I paid $2000 in repairs the first month of ownership. However, it's always fun to drive. Things like the horn on the end of the left column lever and clumsy clam shell engine hood remind you that it's not a Honda Accord. Gas mileage is miserable for most cars in the city. You can park creatively. Door dings add to the rugged look. I've had no other unexpected costs in over a year. Avoid any ones with no service history and look out for rust.
I picked up the truck for a song. Incredible for off road use. I use it for deer and pheasant hunting in upstate New York and New Jersey. I have never ever gotten stuck. The bad newz I have had to pay big bucks (not the male deer variety) for those bragging rights. The dealerships charge ridiculous prices for their factory original parts and they bill like 100 dollars an hour for service. Atlantic British limited or Rovers North sell factory and after market parts that are somewhat cheaper but equal in quality. There are also your usual English Auto electrical headaches. One has to know what they are getting themselves into when they pick one of these vehicles up.
