1998 Land Rover Range Rover P38a 4.0 SE


Luxury Cross Competence


I bought it two weeks ago.

The light bulb went.

The air conditioning system is playing up (the dictionary sign), despite being checked by dealer straight after I bought it.

Sensor can be a pain.

General Comments:

I like this car; I had a Trooper beforehand.

The two look very similar (boxy), next car I will get is either a G-class or the new Range Rover.

The cabin is spacious and comfortable, but the boot seems smaller than the Trooper.

Overall it is a bigger car than the Trooper.

The sound proofing is much better than the Trooper.

Power is similar.

Brakes is not as good.

It sticks to the road; comparing to my E280, it is not much worse.

Fuel economy, according to www.parkers.co.uk, the Range Rover is 18 MPG, and the Trooper is 17 MPG. Not sure about this!!! (yet)

Looks and feels a lot better, definitely better than the X5 or the Cayenne.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I am a Rangie fanatic also. I own a Rangie P38A which I bought this summer in Hong Kong. Although there's a few minor electronic faults with my Rangie, I love it so much as it gives me a fantastic driving experience, a spacious cabin, luxurious surroundings and, most important, the superior air. I know a repair workshop in Sai Kung that gives excellent and value-for-money service to the Land Rover lovers in Hong Kong. So, every day (except Sunday), many Land Rover lovers gather there chatting, sharing and enjoying with others. Wish to see you there.

Dear Sir, may I ask which one car repair shop in Sai Kung is specialised in Land Rover/Range Rover repair?
