When Ford took over Land Rover they made some bad cost cutting decisions on driveshafts among other things, and had some other issues with the engine for the '03 year that mine is. A lot of these issues didn't show up until the trucks had 60,000 plus on them, and a lot of Land Rover Owners are people that buy cars often so it did not affect them after warranty. They are also high maintenance, and need to be maintained properly. You have to have the right fluids at the right intervals, and good filters etc. You cannot neglect the thermostat or anything else, they are big heavy breadboxes on wheels and stress the engine and systems.Welcome to RAV4World! Do the Land Rovers need as many repairs as I've been led to believe? If they were as troublesome and undependable as the stories go, I can't imagine anyone would still be buying them.
