I have a 2001 low milage P38 fitted with the legendary BMW engine. I bought it for 7000gbp 36 months ago. Since then I have spent 5000gbp maintaining it. Of the 16 trips I have made in it, of less than 300mile round trips, it has broken down 17. It has never one time been on a trip that it finished. I have changed the gearbox, 3 radiators, head gasket, diesel pum, tank pump, rebuilt the air suspension, changed all 7 pulleys plus what I have forgotten. Yesterday, a friend cought an 8 hr...

This car is a truely well built car, its stable, reliable, and does everything that i require it to in comfort. it has a nice suspension, good looks and a good engine, however as you would expect a 2.5 tone jeep doesnt have much performance wise, but its not built for that. its extremly safe, and spacious, ive never had 1 problem and it has never broke down one, this is a great car! however fuel economy is not greatand its hard for my girlfriend to park.

used to drive them in the army .taking officers aroud and found that it outstrips all .it will go enywhere without effort .like enything if you dont keep an eye on the thing it will give you big bills ,if worryed about air suspention.get it changed and put polly bushes in,as for engine i found thet there bullet proof ,most cars have problems and if you think of what could go wrong no one would be driving.all on horses again have you seen how much one of them cost to run.so all i can say keep...

I have a Range Rover 2,5 dse from 2001 and 251.358 km on board.
In this years was necessary to change: radiator (~300 euro), air springs (~275 euro), brake pads (~1000 euro), brake disks - front and rear (~200 euro), filters - air, pollen,oil,fuel (300 euro), battery (~50 euro), and few lamps, all about 2000 euro. All parts are OEM from Bearmach UK. Oil and fuel is not calculated.
For me is nothing in 8 years and a sttagering 250.000 km.
I have three friends with Toyota Land Cruiser (no. 1 for... (read more)

Ok, after reading the previous comments I ' m already worried! I traded my perfectly in shape 2002, f-350, on 39.5" tires, 8.5" lift, with turbo upgrade, 600 hp chipped, in excellent condition pick up for a 2000 range with a 2.5l BMW turbo diesel.... Don ' t say nothing.... I know...now! Having this British/German wonder model for less than a month I have to say: very comfy....but that ' s where it stops! No kick, that turbo isn ' t much bigger than my watch, electrical problems all day and... (read more)

If only they had put a decent air suspension system in, it would be the perfect 4x4. I took mine on a 3500 miles round trip to southern France and it was so good, plenty of space for 3 adults and a child and all the luggage. Two months after we returned air suspension went, so expensive to fix, sold the car straight after I had it done. But when ever I see them I wish they had put a decent system in so I could keep one and trust it. (read more)

It's a good, comfy car and certainly looks good! However, I have a huge list of bad points! My Range Rover 2.5 Turbo Diesel is less than a year old and you mostly see businessmen driving them but I bought this one myself and so far in 9 months I have paid £8369 on repair bills! If you think about it you can by a small car with that! My electric windows only work when they want to and the satellite navigation screen often goes completely white and is being fixed for a whopping £1500!... (read more)

I have always wanted a Range Rover 2.5 Turbo Diesel 4x4 and I finally sucumbed to temptation. The 2.5 diesel turbo BMW engine with manual gearbox is the most economical of the bunch so is probably the best choice at 20 to 30 mpg.
It looks the part and the driving position is great. I never get used to looking down at the lights to see the next driver through his sunroof!
But the build quality is abysmal. In six months (and with a good history of servicing etc) this 4x4 has got through two... (read more)
