    How about a Jeep SRT8? The Range Rovers are great but as others have said the reliability is hit or miss. The new SRT8s are actually quite luxurious and obviously offer a lot of power. I think fully loaded they're 69k brand new.

    Very true, I didn't even think about the SRT8. But are they still viable as an off-road vehicle? I know they are lowered and have a lot of street-preferred qualities to them

    Ahh I missed that in your original post. How rough is the terrain he normally drives over? I imagine the X5 M would be the same since there's only an inch difference in ground clearance. I'm sure they could both handle mud etc without a problem. But if it's really rocky, it probably wouldn't be the best choice. Are you looking at the Sport or the normal Range Rover?

    I think the normal Range Rover. The sport is smaller, correct?

    Once again drifting out of his price range. 113K base price with only 382hp?

    In most cases its always hearsay when people make poor reliability comments...never from the owners. Current RR's are solid. I owned a 2006 new in Dec. 2005 that I had 4 years and ~36 miles, flawless. Now have a 2010 I took delivery of end of 09, also rock solid. ~7 years of RR ownership here, I will buy an RR again without hesitation.

    As for the G, it rides like sh!t IMO.

    Agree. I'm on Mk3 #4 and #2 had over 90k miles before I sold it, and have had very few issues across all of them. These reliability "issues" are overblown.

    Really good to hear! And I'm not a big fan of the G's styling, either

    Are you interested in the GL class at all? I've been driving my dad's '10 GL450 for a few weeks now and I absolutely love it. No issues whatsoever, rides nice, pretty quick, very roomy, and looks good too. The new gen GL just came out too, and there's a AMG model available too.
