Lovley 4x4 — A 4x4 fit for a king ;-) Yes it loves to eat petrol, yes it's big, but you can't fault it on comfort and ride quality. It's a great car to drive and the air suspension is great on any roads. Waiting for snow to try the 4x4 grip

Pros: Great ride and comfort

Cons: High fuel cost

5/5 Brilliant Car! — i love pretty much everything about this car. i fun to drive. very confy. it can go anywhere with it being a 4x4. it's looks great inside and out. the only dislike is how much diesel it guzzles but it's still more eco than the 4.6 HSE and just as quick with the super chip inside it!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: fun and confy to drive

Cons: fuel consumption

I Loved It — That British feel. The thick steering wheel. Simply a wonderful SUV. Amazing how these things deprecate, as you can get one for little of nothing. Buy one with good records and the coil over conversion and you're good to go.-

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

Pros: British

Cons: Gas Mileage

Range Rover 4.0 Se (1997) — Horrible on gas. Air Suspension is a pain but if you can look past that then its one of the best cars to own. GREAT off road, cant be beat in the snow. One of the safest, greatest looking vehicles out there.

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

Pros: Appearance

Cons: Gas mileage

Range Rover P38 (1995-2002) —

Range Rover P38 (1995-2002) 15th August 2008 The famous British Range Rover has been around for many years and is capable of far more than just the school run. The stately home on wheels can be described as class-less. It does not matter whether you are a multi millionaire or just a middle class family, it appeals to a wide range of people. In the UK, Range Rovers are common on the second hand market, probably due to high fuel prices and taxes so they are very cheap to purchase. £1,000-£5,000 Australian market Range Rovers are not so common and command a far higher price. The prices range from $7,000-$23,000 depending on region and condition. Range Rovers come with a comprehensive list of features, even on the SE but the one to choose is the HSE or depending on the Country you live, the special editions like the Autobiography, Holland & Holland etc. Performance. The power of the 4.6 ltr V8 effortlessly pulls the 2.2 tonne mass with hast without breaking a sweat. There is a sport mode on the automatic versions that holds the gears longer for quick acceleration. As with all P38's, when it comes to corners, they wallow and if you manage to take corners fast with passengers, they probably wont like you for it. Luggage space is excellent and even better if seats are folded down.. Build Quality has been well documented for all the wrong reasons. Range Rovers need regular attention or yours may become another famous statistic. Minor improvements were made each year until BMW took ownership, these later models from 1999 -2002 had major improvements. Appearance - Strong chiselled jaw look, later models have clear indicators replacing the original orange ones and improved front fog lamps. Some minor cosmetic adjustments to cabin and newer, improved engine. A wide range of OEM wheels are available. Cost - Petrol V8's drink like a fish, it helps to have seriously deep pockets. Fuel costs come down if converted to run on LPG via 75 Ltr Gas tank in spare wheel bay. Parts in Australia are expensive unless sourced from second hand parts or from UK. Vehicle Insurance in Australia is surprisingly cheap if you shop around and the registration (Road Tax) is similar to a Holden Commodore. Fun Factor. The elevated driving position, leather arm chair like front seats make long distance drives very comfortable. Then there is the standard 10 speaker sound system with sub woofer. The off road abilities set Range Rovers apart from their competitors which is why they are still king in extreme environments.

Pros: Stately home on wheels, king off road, comfort, high drive position

Cons: Reliability, maintenance costs, FUEL consumption is poor on V8 petrols.

There Are No Out Of Shape Range Rovers — Just love it Can't say why. Maybe the high ride, the gorgeous V8 sounds, the luxury or just the name. Nevermind it's just impossible to explain. Against all odds, would be the car to keep for everyday if I had to choose one.

Pros: Sitting in a palace. Super cool look. Unforgettable noise

Cons: Petrol stations are you best friends

Great Car — Engine always runs strong and ride quality is great. Amazing off-road and comfortable. Transmission is smooth and clean. Gets Ok MPG given its weight. Perfect for hauling things due to big load bay and easy access because of rear tailgate and air suspension. Interior is very nice and ride is smooth. Engine is Ok on power but has a lot of torque to move itself around with.

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

Pros: Good Power and Great off-Road. Spacious inside and big load bay. Air suspension gives easier access and off-road ability. luxurious interior with comfortable ride.

Cons: Looks like a 90's car (Because it is), Gas mileage isn't great but acceptable, build quality falls down in some areas.
