    I have a 2007 Range Rover which is a lot older than what you are looking for. I am sorry to say, owning it has been a nightmare. Parts are expensive, and shop labor rates are outrageous.
    These vehicles are notoriously temperamental. They have way to many bells and whistles that break. Do yourself and your wallet a favor, and buy a Toyota, Subaru, or Honda.

    Toyota with the Landcruiser or 4Runner is an option.

    Subaru and Honda don't make anything remotely in the same class as an LR3/4.

    Hmmm actually it has an HK not Meridian system. When did they change that?

    Geez...how did that sucker end up totaled with that minor damage on the front end? Seems sketchy.

    Simple: When they dragged it off the bottom of the lake, the tow cable damaged the front end.

    LOL - looking at the left front fender flare it seems that it was a front end impact. I noticed it lists "Mechanical" damage. Probably a blown engine too. :(

    When the owner realized his updated timing chain guides were already worn at 22k miles and his engine was making a racket, he drove it off a cliff.

    Yep, I was just confirming that my 2013 doesnt seem to have the issue despite some reports on this board.
    The Gladiator is sweet. Probably wont be reliable, but that's what leases are for.
