1997 Land Rover Range Rover 4.6 HSE 4dr SUV AWD


I have owned many British cars --
including a Rolls and a couple Jags --
and I was used to unworldly service
bills but with 112,000 miles on the
odometer, this truck has been
reliable. I have the 225hp 4.6 liter

Truck has never let me down. I off
road it a few times a year, pull a
trailer (2000 lbs), fill up a roof
rack and have screaming pre-teens in
the back. Very few creaks and rattles!

Short girlfriend really likes the air
suspension, which can "kneel" to allow
convenient access.

I have not found service costs to be
unreasonably high or extraordinarily

Best Features

"Go anywhere" personality Luxury appointments Durable! This truck has fallen into crevices off-road and just keeps going Great dealer support (Minneapolis, MN area) Good for towing (but get electric brakes if >2000 lbs)

Worst Features

Gas mileage sucks (but typical SUV) No heated seats in the back (OK ... that's the 12-year-old speaking)
