    Default Higher mileage Range Rover?

    I recently sold my STi and am looking to get something more "grown up" and was looking at some 03-04 Range Rover HSE's all with between 70,000 - 85,000 miles. I'm still in college so I want to keep the price below or at $20,000.

    So my question is have any of you had one with this high of mileage(not really high at all but just curious) and are there any major problems or things to be concerned about?

    the range will be a nightmare as stated above.. read some reviews, worst rated SUV out there and always something going wrong
    Events throughout ones life don't build character, they reveal it.

    If u buy the range rover that you r talking about you will put $10-20k into it in the next 18 months.

    My 04 just passed 60k miles. I know.

    i have had 5 sti's and still own one at the age of 40. if you are looking to switch up to a more grown up car, might I suggest a taurus....

    just like an amg benz, I would never own a range out of warranty

    I have to say, so far so good with our Lr3, we just hit 68k and not a problem with her. I almost got an rrs but the 911 was calling my name.

    Can't tell you much about high mileage LRs but the only experience I had was with a 2010 RR SC. Sold it within its first 500 miles. Part of the TFT screen blinked randomly and went black a few times. Check engine came on and off. I guess I bought a bad one. Not all are like that apparently.
