#323 of 339 Great Buying Experience in Houston TX
Apr 12, 2009 (12:05 pm)
I had a 2000 Nissan X-Terra SE had total pay-off and over $150K miles due to on-road sales ready for trade-in, had plans on purchasing 4runner w/out 4wd...and many dealerships gave me the run around on pricing and availability on a 2009.
They wanted to sell me a 2008 4runner for almost the same price as I purchased my 2008 Land Rover LR3.
I found this pricing by going to two different dealerships in Houston 1st one off of hwy 59 wanted to sell me a 2008 off the showroom floor in Buckingham blue no mileage for over $38K, next dealership I contacted I'm proud to say Land Rover Houston, at 7019 Old Katy Road gave me the same color, same year with 4755 mileage 31,706.40. Paperwork was ready to go dealership and sales person walked me thoroughly through the process no haggling, no BS. Satisfied and my first LR3 Land Rover. MSJ
#324 of 339 Confused about buying
Apr 18, 2009 (7:19 pm)
I am thinking of buying a new 2008 LR3 HSE. It has the luxury package, cold climate package and some sort of body styling package which adds $4,000 to MSRP. Also has a clear mask and painted wheel wells which adds another $2,000. The overall MSRP is about $60K but they say there is a dealer rebate which brings it to $52K (plus other stuff I wanted to add). Compared to what I see on this site it seems like its too much. They don't seem to want to go any lower? I love the way it looks. Should I get it? Also, never had a Land Rover before but all the reviews talk about poor reliability. Since they pay for routine maintenance and warranty it seems that it couldn't be that bad? Is it really that unreliable? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

This should be no more than 42-44 now that an LR4 is out in 2010

I bought my LR3 HSE in March of 2008 w/ lux, cold & heavy duty package. It is my first Land Rover. I have to say that I love this vehicle!! I've never enjoyed a car so much. I too worried about the reliability, but the dealer warranty is very reassuring. I've a couple issues that we're easily fixed during a normal oil change. The LR3 is so versatile on the road and off. Good luck!

I was quoted on a 2008 demo LR3 with abount 5K miles with tech, cold climate and light package. They quoted me $38K for it and said the warranty (4year/50k mile) started in 2007, so the car basically comes with only 2 year warranty. Is that a deal that I should take? Wish I can get the great deal that people got here.

I bought my LR3 two months ago and I absolutely love it. It is the best car I have ever owned. Sounds like a good deal... but if you can wait a few months, check out the 2010. It looks like it will be nice.
#330 of 339 2008 LR3

I am outside Philadelphia, there is a 2008 lr3 with u nder 4000 miles, navi, cold climate package and xenon lights. He wants to give it to me for 41K. Is this a good deal? I look at kelly blue book, it says 45K, then I look at TMV and see 37. Thanks.

I've seen some people on here post that they got theirs for $45K... that is not too bad at all. I'd love to pick up a Land Rover after I get out of college and start a job. Beautiful cars.
I'm also glad there is a forum like this where people can give so much information on the car.

I bought new in April 2009 a 2008 LR3 with every option but nav for $37,500 so not sure it's as good a deal as it would appear. Also, remember there is a discount for buying "used" which doesn't seem to be contemplated in this transaction.
PS I'm in the SF Bay Area
