    You tried it out and it's not for you. At least you know what doesn't work for you.
    BK...
    Know what you are talking about! Despite thier "Quirks" have never heard of another vehicle that will get you out of some of the tight spots that the Rover will! Just utilized the "limp home" feature on our Discovery 3 (AKA LR3) to get us into cell coverage from a trail in Death Valley last week...and WOW it just kept going and going and going even after being slammed down on top of a boulder! I was amazed!

    I am sure a Jeep would. The mercedes G would excel as well.

    Oh brother, I had found it: the G55 but some mofo(s) stole it. I am getting a 2010 soon.

    I have another one in my stable that is right too: the cayenne turbo S.

    20K$ is for 2K miles less A LOT

    Damn man! Sorry to hear this. I am going through problems myself but I am luckily selling it at what I paid for.

    Sorry to hear that. I was looking at an HSE last winter but after reading many reviews, and them constantly being ranked the worst SUV on the market I stayed far away. Hope the next choice works out much better for you.

    Sorry Dude...you have obviously not left the pavement too often!The "G" wagon "stock " has the ground clearance of my XK and we had to leave a couple of Jeeper's (Jeeps & H1s do have my utmost respect...but a Gwagon...thats what the soccor moms around here drive!) but Jeeps do lack the EMERGENCY modes like EXTENDED, ACCESS and my Fave...LIMP HOME!

    You had not posted these pics before thus your argument does not make sense.

    The only pic you had was the last one: some LR driving on a paved mountain path.

    I thought the G-class was among the best off-road cars with its 3 differentials. I have to say that ground clearance is not the best, especially the 55 with its side exhaust pipes.

    The soccer mom thing is pretty relative: here soccer moms drive LRs (good luck seeing a G-class) and I'd bet only 1 out of 10 has seen a rock bigger than a tennis ball from close.

    LOL! Guess it does look paved in that pic, it is actuallly "paved" with boulders from rock slides You basically have to have an extended lift and rock crawler tires to make it to any of the old gold mines in that area (Death Valley, Ballaret) There are several old mines (OHV & 4x4 access roads) out there as well as some cool ghost towns but no cell coverage and even out satelite (SPOT) tracker was not responding. We would have have a long 50 miles hiking through Death Valley at night without that "limited access, limp home, mode" we were down on the bumpstops (think lo-rider) fther ramming the air compressor into a boulder almost as large as the truck! We did scrape up the tires on the wheel well but it got us into a cell coverage area and THATS what counted! Briggs was an old mine in the days of the original gold rushand thereare still mines, ghost towns and WILD BURROS all in the area!
