Most of the used Range Rover cars are equipped with a V-shaped 4.4-liter gasoline engine of 286 Hp. The engine is traditionally inclined to consume a huge amount of oil, so you’ll have to regularly check the oil level. Clean the throttle at least once in two years.
All diesel engines are very sensitive to the quality of the fuel. The engine’s weak point is the fuel pump, which, due to bad diesel fuel, can go out of service very quickly. On average, it can withstand about 100,000 - 120,000 km with the high-quality fuel. But it is enough to «roll» a full tank of low-quality diesel, and the pump will break. The official dealers say that the pump is not repairable, although, you can try to sort it out at an independent specialized service.
If you will use high-quality fuel, the suppressor can last up to 150,000 km. All motors are equipped with a timing chain and you have to change them only when they stretch out (usually it happens at 150,000 - 200,000 km).
Range Rover has considerable off-road capabilities. It has its high passability thanks to the reduction gear and four-wheel drive, implemented through a Torsen differential with the axle lock. There are no mechanical problems happening to these systems, but sometimes the electronics fail.
All cars have the air suspension. The air suspension system is more reliable than the Rover’s German classmates have, and with careful handling, the air balances can easily cross the 150,000 km milestone. But don’t forget to regularly flush the cylinders from sand and salt, especially in winter.
The body position sensors are the weak point of the suspension. Fortunately, they are inexpensive. The suspension itself consists of two levers on each wheel, and they can last up to 200,000 km. Although the hub may require replacement at 50,000 km.
