Rangie 4.4 V8 (2005-2006)

Postby GM Disco2 » 08 Nov 2012 14:04

Hi All,
I'm considering to buy a Rangie, 4.4 V8 (2005 - 2006), just for the purpose of a nice comfortable family traveling vehicle, and not for any off-road usage, there my Disco2 suffice good enough for now.
So I'm looking for some advice on the above mentioned model and year, any positives / and negatives, and what I should be looking out for, will be highly appreciated.
Kind regards,
GM Disco 2

the only issue with the early models was that the vehicle came with filled-for-life gearbox oil. Which, as we all know, is horse manure.

A box from the BMW-engined models will require a transmission fluid change, but it must be done according to the specs, don't skimp on it, or it will cost you big bucks in the long run.

Other than that, they are solid vehicles, but you will find more info on the specific models here: http://www.rangerovers.net/ and http://www.fullfatrr.com/forum/
