#793 of 5002 Land Rover 2002 Lineup
Jul 13, 2001 (2:57 am)
In case you are wondering what is happening to Land rover here is the latest news I got from my dealer.
Production on all models is being delayed...
The defender is having an update because it did not meet the latest safety standards any more, production stopped at the moment, will also get a 7% price increase.
The Freelander, delivery is 8 Months, 3.5% price increase.
Discovery: Delivery time is now 7 to 8 Months (was 4 Months) so something seems to be changed on the model 2002 line. Price increase of 4% more info not known.
Range Rover: no news heard.
this was from an official Land Rover letter to all Belgian dealers.

This has no bearing on NAS vehicles
#795 of 5002 1998 or 97?

Thanks a lot!

Your's was built 11/04/97. Remember automobile model years do not follow calender years. Look at all the 2002 models you can buy now.

#798 of 5002 Land Rover questions...
Jul 13, 2001 (11:27 am)
I am new to Land Rovers and am in the market to purchase one used. Is there a place that I can go to look at the various years and get information on problems and the various descriptions of the different models from year to year?
Jul 13, 2001 (11:37 am)
It was built on 02/23/99, no major repairs done.

What is the average time from build date to sale?
Also wondering whether removal of the front guards will cause any damage to the car?
Thanks in advance for the info.

I couldn't begin to guess at an average on your first question. Which guards are you talking about? The Brush Bar? If so there is a slot cut into the Bumper on the RH side and the Cover for the tow loop on the LH side has a bit trimmed off of it. The tow loop was also removed from the vehicle. Other than exposing these slots, there would be no adverse effect.

I guess on the first question - Is 1 year from build to sale fairly normal?
Yes I was referring to the steel brush bar - it has been installed on the car but I did not want it. So are you saying that there is no tow loop? If so, how would you attach a tow rope to the front of the vehicle?
