High mileage LR3

Hi I'm looking into buying a used LR3 & I just want to make sure I'm not buying a hunk of junk I've had many cars and I love the look of this SUV and the room and the features and the way it drives !!! I keep hearing negative things but I see a lot of great reviews and high ratings online ?! I'm looking at a 2006 with 130k miles on it tomorrow !!

Does it have a good service history? I would want to know what work has been done.
But then again it depends on condition and price.

Mine's just gone over 150,000 miles & going just fine (had belts done & a new turbo), not looking to move it one anytime soon either, plenty of life in it (hopefully - why do I write these things!)

Thanks for getting back to me everyone I found a 06 HSS with 81k on it for only 10900 but I'm still hearing such negative things from people , people I know but most of them have never owned a Rover ?! I'm so beside myself !! lol I really love the car !! And think it's such a good deal too !! I need an SUV with 3rd row seating and I'm not trying to spend a lot of money , please let me hear some more of your positive feedback Smile

Well I wouldn't be without mine - had it for just over four years now & it comfortably seats seven when we need to (we have three kids so there's often an extra friend or two), tows our 24ft twin axle caravan without breaking sweat & occasionally gets its boots muddy at an off-road course then scrubs up well to become my daily transport for work, including visiting customers & doesn't look too shabby.

There's always going to be people that will knock a Land Rover, but they're very different animals from what they were in the 80's & 90's

mine is a 06 with over 200k on the clock if its well maintained inside and out and been looked after all its life its a great family car there realy are only two proviso's you either have to have deep pockets full of cash so you can pay a garage to do repairs and general maintenance or a decent tool kit and skils to use them in general there easy enough to work on and in my opinion an iid tool is worth its weight in gold and a must best £300 i have ever spent on kit

Hi and welcome

Assume its a V8 - very rare in the UK but I believe the engine is fairly bullet-proof - but I'm not really sure after that - there is a guy on this site from Utah that (I think) had a V8 D3, (Rossettaquarrier) - he might be worth a contact

Check all suspension works correctly and all electrics, check floor for damp (sun roof, if fitted, can leak), usual other checks on gear box changing, condition of oils etc

A full and detailed service history is essential - ideally with proof of preventative maintenance - if it hasn't got one, walk away.

Good luck

My v8 has just turned 150,000 and still going strong, good service history and regular oil changes. Very Happy

Good for you Heffy Thumbs Up

Had my 2005 for about 5 years now and absolutely love it, the build, versatility robustness, drivability stereo and the look
 All the Best
