1998 Land Rover Range Rover HSE 4.6L from North America
I am hooked on Land Rover, by far my favorite vehicle
Cruise control hose shot. Repaired with $5 rubber tubing from Parts City.
Driver side mirror doesn't go back to the right spot after you switch from reverse back to drive.
WalMart put on my 4 brand new tires (purchased elsewhere); they didn't heed my warning by telling them to at least keep a door or the tail gate open so the suspension wouldn't run while the car was lifted... Surprise, the air suspension was destroyed by that visit. WalMart did a good job though of having a check to me within a week. I used it to convert to coil springs, and I pocketed the rest.
Ran the belt a bit too far past what it should of went, and had to replace the water pump because of it after the belt slipped off.
I love this beast. It's extremely comfortable, and with the all time 4x4, I really feel safe when my fiance is out on longer trips on our bad winter nights here in Minnesota.
The ride was good with the air suspension, but much, much softer now with coil springs and brand new shocks. I'm very happy with the conversion kit by Strutmasters.
I haven't really had too many issues; most things that went wrong were probably because of me. I couldn't recommend this car more, I highly suggest buying one if you can cope with the realistic nature of it needing repairs for stupid things here and there. I will say though, do not settle for a cheaper Rover to save a buck. Find one from a guy who is as enthused about the car still as you are about buying it, and you should have a happier owning experience.
If you have any questions, feel free to leave an email or comment, I'll check back often!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
