2003 Range Rover HSE Diesel


Recommended Posts

Have been thinking for a while of buying an L322.

Loking at 1 at weekend, its an '03 with 68k miles.

I currently drive an 06 110 Defender commercial.

I realise they are totally different vehicles, but would like the change.

What should I look out for ?

Are my servicing costs going to be much greater than defender ?

Fuel consumption ?

Power ?

Reliability ?

Still at an early stage and wont be rushing into it.

Blown front diffs are a favorite.

Electronics can give problems.

Have a look on RangeRovers.net for more info.

With regards to the front diff.

The original layout is not a typical sliding jointed propshaft with a flange on propshaft and diff; it was a spline end on the propshaft that slide into a splined hole on the diff, this allowed for the length difference (very small being independant suspension with fixed diff).

Land Rover are reworking all the diffs as part of a customer relationship program; so don't worry about that 1.
