This vehicle will go anywhere you want to put it.

Cons

The MPG is not the greatest and there is allot of maintenance and up keep.

Great Vehicle — This is a AWD vehicle and is a very very heavy SUV so the gas mileage runs from about 11 to 17 MPG. It's loaded with all options and is a great looking body style for a Land Rover. This Limited Edition comes with a performance package added to it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Reliable Driver — Bought this car (used) in 2004. In spite of all the reviews and forum, the mechanical reliability has been a definite asset. No problem whatsoever except for a new water pump. You can go most anywhere, the transmission system is great, and applies the power as it needs it off road.

Primary Use: Family transportation

She's A Beast When Wants To Be. — This vehicle leaks and leaks and leaks some more. Be prepared to replace the valve cover gaskets every 18 to 24 months (pricey endeavor). Be mindful that when approaching 70K to 100K milage the head gasket will go and THIS is a MAJOR maintenance cost! Besides the aforementioned...she's quirtky, exaperating, frustrating, and costly but so iconic! Oh, one more thing, this model year 2001 was when BMW owned Land Rover (til 2005) and they put the infamous "Super Lock" system in these vehicles. What a pain in the arse when the system locks you out. It isn't a matter of if but a matter of when! It cost me something north of $700.00 for a fix (to essentially get in my vehicle w/out busting a window).

Pros

The ability to go anywhere, in comfort.

Cons

An irritating, but small, leak from one of the sunroofs - which we can't seem to find.

The Best 4x4xfar — This is a great, fun car. We can go anywhere, carry a ton of crap around with us, and do 30mpg. All this, and we've got leather seats, individual climate control air conditioning, and 12 speaker multi CD suround stereo.

Pros

The sheer shock factor of a tuned V8 in a Land Rover - it's a real Q-car

Cons

Fuel economy (or lack thereof)

35

I Love It! — 4.0 V8 with custom mapped ECU. 12mpg on premium unleaded, so 26mpg equivalent on LPG :-) Acceleration is surprising in "sports mode", and the Active Cornering Enhancement means cornering is great too. Styled like a concrete block, but that's part of the appeal, at least for me. Full electric leather interior dual climate control + separate rear aircon. Has needed 2 front springs, ACE tie-bars, and suspension air compressor replacing, but I service it myself (25+ years experience, plus factory-level diagnostic equipment)

Pros

top reason to drive this car,,,, fun and safe to drive, plus it is a very good looking car.

Cons

top reason to avoid this car...... if you are sporty and want to carry stuf on the roof it is really high and difficult.

25

Bottom Line, All Around Good, Safe Fun Vehicle!! — Great solid SUV with lots of control. Feels safer than other SUV since it is so heavy and well built. Do not like how high the roof is. Since I am a surfer, it is a great issue because it is really hard to get surfboards up ontop of the racks. That is my only complaint really. Tough and good looking, for me it has been a great car with kids and the jump seats in the back. Very fun t drive!!

Brad's Rover — They tell me you love 'em or hate 'em. Not sure yet. It was the right price to buy, handles like a dream for a big car, luxurious and comfortable to drive and goes great. Love the V8. Loves the fuel though and they have a reputation for poor reliability (time will tell). So far so good though.
