After 4 months of frustration with misc crap going wrong with the truck, i have decided to trade it in for somthing newer. I dont have the time or patience for all the little things that went wrong with it. I pick yup my new ride tomorrow.
Well I picked up a Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited... I know I'm a quiter but I have a kid on the way & would never hear the end of it if my wife broke down in it with the kid. Plus the closest repair shop was 45 miles away. With only having the car for 3 months & it being in the shop for a month of that i finally had enough. I got the blend motors fixed & a week later the blowers stopped blowing air and that was it. Thanks for everyones help in here. This site is great. maybe a little while down the road I'll get another one. Just not one for a daily driver.
If ye wanna join the club, ye gotta pay to play with a RR unfortunately.
Nothing that any semi competent home wrench turner cant do, but a little TLC from time to time will go a long way for sure.
Same thing goes for Jeeps though too, but they lack the build quality and over engineering of the P38 I'm afraid. Hope the Jeep does you well, although depending on which model Grand you got (ZJ, WJ, WK) they all have their issues, and blend motors rank right up there :?
if he traded it in, i am sure he didn't get much money for it.
granted, i have only had mine for 6 months, but it does take a special person to own and maintain a range rover. it takes some dedication to keep these trucks running well. unfortunately, if you are mechanically inept or have never turned a wrench in your life, these trucks will destroy your ego and pocketbook. too bad he couldn't stick with it.
as for me, i have fixed a few things, added some things and everytime i get in my P39, it brings a smile to my face. i have a 03 4Runner for my wife for reliability, but i love my range rover.
