  1. Long Term Parking - Does Selected Height Matter?

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    When parking for 10+ days is there a recommended height to set? Struts are fresh and not leaking. Just wondering. Figured access was the way to go but thought I'd poll the forum. Thanks!
  2. Range Rover reliability and long term maintenance?

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Hi everyone, I am new/recent to RR world, leased my first RR about 2 years ago. I wonder how in general RRs do when it comes to reliability and long term maintenance. Some say "you should never own a RR", is that a true statement?... to me without a backing evidence it sounds like saying...
  3. SVR owners: Long term thoughts

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    Dear all, I am set on buying a new RR Sport SVR (blue Estoril with tan/ebony seats). However, there is just one thing that is making me hesitant about it. Although I love the exhaust sound (and is one of the main reasons for buying it over the ATB), I am a bit concerned about whether it would...

  7. Interesting long term review for diesel fans

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    I am assuming that the powertrain will be essentially similar in the US. Seems like it should be a reliable powertrain. http://www.carmagazine.co.uk/car-reviews/long-term-tests/land-rover/range-rover-vogue-se-tdv6-2014-long-term-test-review/

  9. Long term fuel trims -18.75 on 1997 GEMS 4.0

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    My 1997 4.0 P38 doesn't give any fault codes, and seems to run pretty OK for the Craigslist beater that it is. Out of curiosity, I checked fuel trims using my Nanocom, and was surprised to see -18.75 on both banks. This isn't normal, is it? Could it just be oxygen sensors needing replacement...
  10. Long Term Storage.

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    What is long term? In this case, a three week vacation, but it's still a good question. I couldn't find anything in the manual about long term storage, particularly concerning battery health, other than to say that if the battery needs charging, better call the dealer. With the alarm and...
  11. Long term fuel trim odd values even after reset

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    95 P38 using ROVACOM to diagnose - Just replaced fuel pump, regulator, filter, and injectors. Still suffering from a disturbingly large fuel trim long term. -160 after resetting adaptive values (seems unique to 95 MY? to not reset to zero?) and it really doesn't correct any lower much past -140...
  12. long term storage question

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    I'll be traveling soon and need to put my RRS in storage for 1-2 months. I purchased a battery tender and had planned on using it in a storage-unit type place; however, it's apparently against fire codes to have an electricity outlet inside a storage unit. I live in an appt complex with no...
  13. Long term Landrover fan, new to L322!

    New Member Introductions
    Hi all, Just thought I'd say hi, and thanks really! I've been lurking in the background for some time gaining advice here and there. You chaps do a fantastic job explaining faults and remedies and for that I'm truly thankful. As the title says, I'm fairly new to the L322, in saying that I have...
  14. Are Range Rovers long term daily drivers?

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Hypothetical question: Would you consider a Range Rover a good vehicle to own long term? I'm a pretty new owner of Rovers (had mine 2 years) and I like to keep my cars 6-7 years. There's nothing like having 2-3 years of no car payments! I was having this discussion with friends. I figured...
