    I'd would also be very disappointed. I would lose my trust in a company if that happened when I bought a new car.

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!
    I'm really not trying to be an ass, but I cannot help it. When the terrain is this tough and 99.99% of the population driving does not need this sort of ability. of the miles you will put on your Land Rover, what percent will be off road? Get a 4 wheeler or UTV. They are way more capable and cost a fraction. Scuffing a fender does not cost $3000 to fix.

    It Is just a lifestyle sport and depends on the level of luxury you are accustomed to... the majority of our miles ARE offroad and you can not exactly put a rooftop tent, ladder, etc...on an ATV...LOL! Not to mention all the toys...laptops, netbooks, satellite, 2 way radios, pets, food, firewood, supplies, clothes, gas cans...etc...LOL! Most of our week long-two week trips would have really sucked on an ATV...How would we have refueled??? Rover Rondevous, Great Divide, G4 Challenge ...on an ATVTHATS a GOOD one! GO HARD OR GO HOME!!! BTW Horses are WAY more capable than an ATV or UTE...ROFLMAO!!!

    We've had 5 of them since they came out and only had engine light problems with one of them. Latest is 2010 rr sc with about 2500 miles and problem free so far.....

    We've had it for about 3-4 weeks and it's already f*cking up. I guess I must be among the unlucky ones with LRs reliability.

    TFT screen blinks randomly (went even blank for a good 5 sec), check engine light comes on and off, sunroof hesitates to close, ... what's next?

    I learned something today in this forum: a swiming car is a car that is purchased brand new and that's being resold and exported overseas.

    Guess what? Off to dealer to be fixed then off to a good swim. My RR will be swing good! My relative overseas wants to buy despite its problems.

    (He resells them and make huge profit (no customs and no taxes at entry) on them and I get what I paid at purchase).
