1996 Land Rover Range Rover from North America
If you can get one cheap, take the chance, she is a luxurious hidden gem!!
Can be tricky to start.
I LOVE, love, love my Range Rover. It is easily the nicest car that I have ever owned; even nicer than some of my new cars.
I know that she is nearly 20 years old, and she definitely has her quirks, but there is something super comforting about this car. You feel like you could be hit by a semi and it would just bounce off. Good British Steel! I also love the interior, which feels luxurious even after all this time.
While mine was in an accident, previous to my purchase, and has some damage to the front (the hood is a wee bit crumpled) and to the innards (the windshield washer tank is cracked), she is still a wonderful car. I drive down a big hill to work, and going down feels like you are on safari, lots of bumping and rocking. While I know most folks wouldn't think that was a plus, it makes driving this car FUN! And I paid cash for her, so I have no car payments, which makes me like her even more! She had really low mileage at purchase.
She is just a beauty, and if I can only drive her for a year before she gives out, it will have been well worth the money for the experience. It is deeply satisfying to drive something that not every Tom, Dick and Harry drives. Love my Range Rover!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
