Summary:

I love this car to the point that its quirkiness is becoming endearing

Faults:

A horn button became loose and there was a misaligned piece of plastic trim on the steering column.

General Comments:

The 4.6 liter engine has great low end torque and acceptable high end power. The fuel mileage is poor at about 15mpg average.

It has been excellent off road. (to give you an idea of my standards my other car is a pinzgauer)

The driver's legroom is a little cramped for me at 6'2.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Summary:

Great luxury vehicle that gets lots of attention

Faults:

Rattle in the Instrument Panel, and drivers side arm rest adjustment.

General Comments:

Dealer had to order a new drivers arm rest, the problem is the time it takes to get the parts from England. The overall ride, comfort, and attention to detail is excellent. The Quality of leather along with the rest of the interior is first notch. The fit and finish is also a notch above the American cars I have purchased in the past. The single one thing I do not like is the wind noise coming from the left side A post area, where the IP meets the door. It sounds like the door is ajar, but the Dealer said it is the trait for this vehicle and was not fixed, when I took it in for service.

Purchase the extended warranty. Near the last 10,000 miles of the term, take it in and have the service dept look for any potential problems, and fix them. That $2800 now is pennies compared to a repair bill at 90,000 miles. PS, I drive a 1997 disco and am looking to purchase a 2003 or 2004 next month. You'll love the vehicle.
