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
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
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.
