I love driving the Land Rover! Not as bad on gas as I was expecting.. It is big and I like all the windows and the 2 sunroofs. I'm a bigger guy, so the room in side is perfect for me. Really in the 2 years I have owned it, not much in the way of problems. When I bought it, I put new shocks, muffler and tires on it and have only had to replace the right exhaust manifold for about $300.. I get all my work done on it at a local garage.. There is no Land rover dealer in my home town.. Has always started in the cold i.e. -40oc.. Put a new battery in it.. It does have leaks.. But I still only have to change the oil every 3 months with no problems.. Sunroof rattles a lot, but I have read that is a common problem because of the rails.. Interior is great! Nice leather seats. One thing is the bottoms of the front seats, It is common for them to be broken.. Mine were broken, I don't really notice it.. I have not had to put tires on it since new.. Put regular unleaded with no problems at all. Great SUV.. Would recommend if you don't mind paying the gas, because it is not cheap on gas.. Lots of room.. Have had it out 4X4 a few times.. Great for that of course!!
