A: IF YOU DON'T MIND THE GAS GUZZLING, FILLING UP EVERY 200 MILES AND SOMETHING BREAKING EVERY OTHER WEEK, THEN GO FOR IT.
PERSONALLY, I'D RATHER GET A LATE 80S ACCORD OR CIVIC. I'VE DRIVEN THEM WITH OVER 200K MILES AND THEY ARE JUST SOLID, ALMOST DRIVES AS IF THEY WERE BRAND NEW.

LR are very unreliable and expensive to fix
maybe you'll get lucky and yours will be a cherry
but history repeats itself

A: You should also consider that such a car may be expensive to insure. Check your insurance rates before buying one, for example here - carinsurance.yoll.net
Q: What is the proper way to claim a Range Rover on taxes for depreciation & do they pay for themselves?
I bought a Range Rover brand new. Do I report the full purchase price and depreciate a certain amount yearly?
Also I heard that by doing so the Range Rover pays for itself...Does that mean that I get a refund from irs for the depreciation each year?
A: Did you buy it for a business you own, for business driving you do, or is it for your personal use? If for personal use, you don't do anything on your taxes with it. If it's for driving for business, yes you can claim either a flat rate for mileage of 58.5 cents per business mile, which would include depreciation, or claim actual expenses prorated for the amount of your driving that is business miles,
In any case, no they don't pay for themselves. Sounds like something a dishonest salesman would tell you. Even if it's used only for business, the depreciation means that much of your income isn't taxed, so your tax savings is the depreciation times your tax bracket. You don't say just what model you bought, or what your income is. But if you paid say $90,000 for it, and are in a 25% bracket, tax savings over the years could be as much as $22,500 from the depreciation - the other $67,500 would still come out of your pocket.
Q: Is it possible to import a Diesel Range Rover from Europe to Canada?
Is it possible to import a Diesel Range Rover from Europe to Canada? I googled it for a bit but couldnt find anything.
I know the shipping would be a little bit, but what else would cost so much.
And the reason why is because we cant get Diesel Rovers over here, just the gas thirsty ones.
A: Not a new one - they don't meet our emissions standards. SORRY; they are nice vehicles too.
Q: Can you buy a Range Rover in London and have it shipped to the United States?
Since a Range Rover is one of the vehicles that is street legal in the United States, can you buy a Range Rover in London and then have it shipped to the United States?
Okay, so let me make sure I understand this right. As long as the model is street legal in the USA, we can have it shipped here, right?
A: Why bother? There are Land Rover dealerships all over the place in the USA. Just buy one there.
Remember you will be paying a MUCH higher price premium in the UK because the value of the U.S. dollar is currently declining, which makes cars sold in the U.S. less expensive.
I can get a better deal on a Range Rover from my local Land Rover dealer in Glen Cove NY (Starts at $78,450 USD) than you can in London (starts at 56,000 GBP). That's a difference of almost $20,000 USD / 10,000 GBP, for the same car.
Q: How do I sell my Range Rover without paying to sell it?
It's a 1997 Range Rover HSE with all the upgrades of the 2000. She's a beauty black with leather (of course). It is in great condition (now that the overheating is solved). New timing belt, new fan, new water pump, new thermostat, practically everything that has needed to be replaced has been.
I love the car, but the gas is outrageous. I don't want to have to pay someone else to advertise it for me. Is there a way to sell it without paying? Or if anyone is interested, let me know.
Q: How to save up money to buy a 2000 land rover or range rover?
Okay so this is going to sound really crazy(and stupid).
-i'm only 14, (going on 15in a week)
and i want to save up for a 2000 range/land rover for when i'm 16.
Is there any possible way,
without working full time, wasting away the summer?
A: Good choice in a first vehicle. Don't let ANYONE tell you different. If they try to, they do not know what they are talking about. A Range Rover, if owned in the company of other Rover enthusiasts, will set you on a wonderful path in life full of great people and great fun and adventure.
Fortunately, you don't need to save up much to get what you want. Resale values on those are pretty low, and that works great for purchasing.
That particular model is called the P38. They have an undeserved bad reputation. Land Rover bit off more than they could chew with the air suspension, and it tends to fail eventually. Simple to fix, though.
One set of coil springs, and you never have another problem. Great excuse for a lift... :D Just buy one, and don't worry. If it ever gives you trouble, grab a set of coils. They are widely available.
As for how to save, break off a piece of whatever money you get your hands on and put it away. Whatever you can afford to go without, break it off and put it away. While you are at it, offer to do as many small jobs for people as you can, you get more per hour doing that than anything. Mowing lawns adds up like crazy at your age, and you only need a cheap used mower.
You aren't crazy at all, you know what you want, and you are trying to come up with a way to get it. Keep this attitude in life, and nothing will be beyond your grasp. Check out online Rover clubs for more advice and help. Discoweb is a great place to meet great people if you are willing to learn.
You may have to work part time somewhere to help generate the money along with the small jobs and other things, but it will be well worth it. Trust me. That Range Rover will shortly become the most wonderful thing you could ever own. And owning one feels just as good as imagining it. Every day I get into a Rover, I smile as wide as I did when I first saw one.
You want to try and come up with several thousand dollars. 5 will get you into a decent one, 6 will start you off with lower miles. Ebay isn't the place to shop, enthusiast forums is where you need to look. Better Rovers with good owners and pretty public histories are sold cheaper there. Like I said, check out discoweb.
You are on the right track, man. You can have your Range Rover. Go ahead and consider it yours, and do what it takes to get it. You have the time to pull it off, and so far as I can tell, you have the attitude to do it as well.
If you have any Rover specific questions, I'd be glad to answer them, just contact me here. As far as I can tell, I'm the only Rover guy that hangs around answering these questions anymore. :)
Q: How is the maintanence on the Range Rover Sport?
I'm purchasing a 2006 Range Rover Sport with about 30 thousand miles. I am curious what the maintenance will be like beyond the 50 thousand mile 4 year warantee.
A: there are starting to be more and more early model range rover sports exiting the new car warranty, but it's really hard to get a definitive answer.. you're definitely gonna go through brakes like crazy. it's a consequence of driving a vehicle that's almost 3 tons. i'm around 58k and nothing so far. the RRS hasn't been any different, maintenance-wise, than my wife's 2000 BMW (E39). everything else has been covered under warranty. just make sure you read up on the TSBs and get anything done
Q: i have a range rover sport supercharged and every time i start it from cold it starts hunting ?
can anybody tell me why my range rover supercharged starts hunting when starting from cold please.
A: quite simply you have an air vacuum leak on the inlet side...look for any small bore pipes that have come adrift or check for cracks in the piping.
Q: How do you fit 3 car seats in the 2nd row of the Range Rover?
I have 2 britax roundabouts currently, and my graco snugride doesn't fit in the middle of them. My 3rd is due in December, and my kids are currently ages 3 and 21 mo., and neither of them will be in a booster anytime soon. Please help. I LOVE my Range Rover and am very opposed to the minivan concept (please don't recommend one for me). Thank you!
A: You ought to be able to keep your car and get 3 across, but it may mean purhcasing more seats, and skipping the infant seat for the newborn, using a rear facing convertible instead. (Yes its safe - the infant carrier is not a required stage in car seats) The Sunshine Kids Radian65 is the narrowest car seat you can buy, and fits kids 5lbs to 65lbs. It would be best installed in the middle, if it will work, b/c it does have a rather tall seat shell and limits the space of the passenger in front of it. In the middle it will stick between the 2 front seats and won't limit how far back they can be. The Range Rover has a pretty wide back seat, so you really shoudln't have much trouble. When shopping and trying to configure seats, its important to remember a few things:
1)the BEST seat is the one that fits your child, fits your car, and will be used correctly 100% of the time. (This is why convenience features DO make a difference and ARE worth the money! If its easy to use, you're more likely to use it correctly.
2)children need to stay rear facing as long as possible.
Turning kids forward at 20lbs/1year is an outdated practice that could cost you your child's life!
A)A forward-facing child under 2 years old is 5 times more likely to be killed or seriously injured in a crash than a rear-facing child of the same age.
B)A child's vertabrae do not fully fuse until 3-6 years old, before then, she is at great risk for internal decapitation. The spinal column can stretch up to 2 inches in a crash BUT the spinal cord can only stretch up to 1/4 inch before it snaps and baby is gone.
C)Current research suggests that children under the age of two years are 75 percent less likely to die or be seriously injured when they are riding rear facing.
D)In a recent article from Injury Prevention, it was found that the odds of severe injury to forward facing children age 12-23 months old was 5.32 times higher than a rear facing child. (Car Safety Seats For Children: Rear Facing For Best Protection; Injury Prevention 2007; 13:398-402.)
3)Once you do turn them forward facing, they need to stay in a 5 point harness as long as possible. 4 years/40lbs is the minimum for riding in a booster, and most 4 year olds have no business using one yet. If they can't sit upright for an entire trip, they need the harness of a car seat still. And, even if they do sit properly, a 5 point harness is safer, so you want to keep them in one as long as possible. This is important to consider b/c most car seats only forward face to 40lbs. My son just turned 3, and is in the 95th% for height and weight - 40" tall and weighs 41lbs. He outgrew the 40lbs seats shortly after his 2nd birthday. It was a total waste of money. He now has a Britax Marathon, which goes to 65lbs, and will be able to fit it for some time yet. If I'd have bought it when he was born, I could have had one car seat this whole time instead of the 3 I wasted money on. They are more expensive for many reasons, this is one.
Something to consider is that you may want another car here at some point, b/c its pretty hard to have a 3 across using booster seats. Depending upon the size of your kids, the 3 year old may be able to fit in a Radian65 for another 2-3 years before you have that issue. Even if you get one Radian, for the 3 year old, it might give enough room to make them all fit. Or you could get 2 or even 3. :) The Radian can be difficult to install with the seatbelt - so a best bet is to buy from walmart.com so you can take it back if it doesn't work in you vehicle. Its your best bet for 3 across though - and is easy to install with LATCH (but you can only use LATCH to 48lbs).
So for until they're boosters it ought to be doable. Then I would try and get something else. Its just too hard to have to dig between child seats to get the buckle every time they get in and out of a booster.
And you don't necessarily have to have a Radian65 - the trick to getting 3 across is puzzling the seats - putting different brands of seats facing different directions next to each other. You'll see that in the link posted below.
Q: How stupid do you think it is that Tata is purchasing Jaguar and Land/Range Rover?
The $100 billion company (Tata) is only buying Jaguar and Land/Range Rover for a collective price of $3.2 billion from Ford. I remember when BMW owned Land/Range Rover, and Jaguar was a spectacular company all its own.
Please do not use historical grudges/treaties and wrong doings between two countries. The country the car is made in has nothing to do with the car itself.
A: Tata is not so specialized in manufacturing high end cars but JLR has the specialized team so tata only needs to monitor everything and fill their pockets

And How much would a good down payment be on a 06 Range Rover HSE?IN CALIFORNIA
A: Not enough information.
How much are you paying for it?
What is your interest rate and the term of the loan?
These are both things you should know before stepping foot into a dealership unless you plan on being ripped off.
