Great for off road

by Offroader from Bay Area, CA | August 24, 2012

Bought this car new in 2003 & still have it after 9 years. Works great. Love to go travelling & camping with it. Unlike big clumsy SUVs, this is nimble on the high ways, little city streets as well tight off road trails.

Very unreliable

by Don't be fooled from DC | February 3, 2012

When I first got this car I loved it. It had 63,000 miles on it. I had it for four years and It was constantly in and out of the shop. I had to take it to the Land Rover dealer because most mechanics do not know how to work on them. First the ignition switch had to be replaced. Then the battery and brakes. The fuel pump died with no warning which is a common problem with this vehicle. Land Rover sent a recall letter for the issue after I had to pay to get it repaired. It was constantly leaking coolant and the mechanics could not figure out why. It was driving fine until one day the engine died at 98,000 miles and the dealership gave me a quote of $12000 for a new engine. Never again!

Do Not buy a Land Rover

by BeWise from west coast | January 17, 2011

While our Land Rover was surprisingly reliable for about 5 years before it fell apart, Land Rovers are absolutely overpriced (people buy it for the name and prestige) and practically "illegally" expensive to maintain. There is absolutely no reason to pay $169.99 for an oil change when your car is under warranty. The whole Land Rover brand is poor value for the money and the cars are built for a short life span. If you want value, do not buy the Land Rover brand. If you have a lot of money to spend, don't worry about your image, save $30-40,000 and give it to your favorite charity.

not relible car

by mike from chicago | March 19, 2010

expensive parts, I lost a lot of dollars for repair.Common problems: transmision, oil leaking, sun roof stopped working, back door window, hot air inside smells like coolant fluid- coolant fluid radiator leaking, and many more defects. And that car is 7 years old. Has now 72000 miles. Stay away from this car.

Dont be fooled by the brand name

by PSYCO from Bay Area | November 1, 2007

There are some annoying design flaws, like the seats should move electrically for a luxury line, but they are manual. Flimsy cup holder's lac of engineering force you to maneuver the vehicle constantly cautious of spillage.I dont know if the decision to put the hood release lever on the passenger side,& gas cap that requires a key is european, outdated, or just poor design.
