With any vehicle its all about maintenance, I've done alot of work repairing what the previous owner didnt do. Transmission went out a year ago dropped it and found out that the transmission had not been worked on opened up or had fluid added in 17 years Land Rover confirmed with its records as well the mechanic showed me where the bolt threads had not been touched. 17 years with out being touched. So i bought a new transmission from a great company 400 bucks paid AAMCO 250 to drop it in do a oil change she's a new car again love the 360 view around the vehicle the hood dips in a way you can see the front end better shes just a joy. I've driven her off road a lot. Death valley and every state and federal park i find. I've driven cross country in her 11 times now AWD is a beast and for almost 20 year old car she feels good and looks good. every car looks the same now. this is a Land Rover nothing looks like it. I love mine and shes a fun daily driver Pic related Good cars that last the test of time Land Rovers Jeeps. They are reliable as long as you care for them.
