Hows the reliability of Land Rovers?

Wondering if its a good investment to buy a 3 year old Range Rover which has its factory warranty expiring soon.

6 out of 7 prostitutes agree that they are modestly reliable

Thanks guys.
Didn't know their reliability was this bad.
Looks like its a lease-only vehicle.

If it's an automatic, run like hell away from it (chances are it will not be able to catch you without breaking)... also the electrical on them sucks ass.

Given Mateen's objections to his neighbors, he definitely doesn't want one then!

Ha - Well, like I said in my last thread about SUVs, I have (4) close friends who have them ranging in years from '03 - '10 and two of the guys have owned multiple RRs and never had issues outside of normal stuff - Def get the warranty but that goes for any car or truck

Lets just say I find that Yugo's are more reliable than Land Rovers.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

I LOVE Range Rovers specifically, and the Land Rover brand in general...but wouldn't buy one without a warranty. Just my .02.
