1996 Land Rover Range Rover 4.6 HSE 4dr SUV AWD


Owning this vehicle is a combination of
highs and lows. Overall, we hate the RR
most just after we've paid another $2K
repair bill. We love it shortly before
it breaks again.

I'd never buy another. We bought it as
a family hauler right before the birth
of our second boy. It's done OK there -
hauling us to Tahoe a few times, never
stranding us anywhere, plenty of space
inside. However, its resale value has
dropped so quickly that we're upside
down on the loan and can't sell without
paying $$.

The controls - especially the power
window switches - are infuriatingly
obtuse. The owners manual is more than
200 pages, and you have to read every

Best Features

Feels secure, especially in bad weather. Great interior appointments put other SUVs to shame -- beautiful wood, piped leather, rich plastic on the dash. Quintessentially british! The adjustable suspension is great and makes it easy to get in/out.

Worst Features

Reliability and repair costs leave much to be desired. Air conditioning, suspension sensors, power brake booster - pretty much everything has been replaced.
