Why a LandRover LR3?
anyway i just came across an 05 LR3 for sale that seems to be well maintained (i know the owner) and is reasonably priced. i drove it (first time in a land rover) and was very impressed with the ride and handling.
so, i'm considering jumping on this, but am concerned about 2 things
1) it is an 05, which was the first year of the LR3 and supposedly most problematic (owner says he has had no trouble with the vehicle, which i plan to check)
2) i'm not really sure about what the competition is like, except there are a number of SUVs that are less expensive
so, what i'd like to know is, what specifically do you owners really like most about your land rovers? what are their biggest strengths compared to what else is in the SUV market (toyota, nissan xterra, etc.)?
i guess another way to put this is, it is a relatively high priced vehicle, and more service issue prone than others -- what does it offer that offsets these issues?
thanks a lot!
