Hi All,

Hope the weekend is fun for all.

I need some advice on buying a LR3 with 110000 miles. It is one owner car fax looks good with good maintanence schedule. Is 15000 dollars a right price from a dealer?

I am always a off road enthusiast with beginner experience. Need something to start and get more experience and fun. Please suggest what to look for and ask for about the LR3.

Also please suggest a good warranty. Waiting for your responses.

We need a bit more info on the model and options/aftermarket goodies. Is it the stripped down V6 model or fully optioned HSE? What maintenance or repairs does it need? Is everything original or has it been upgraded?

I'd say $15K for a 2005 with 100+K miles is too high. I purchased my 2005 LR3 with 65K miles on it 2.5 years ago for $16,500. It had a V8, 3rd row, NAV, lighting package, cold weather package, HD package, and cooler box. It was very well taken care of, 1 owner, bought and sold by the original dealership. It even came with both summer and studded winter tires (I live in Colorado).

Fast forward 2.5 years and 45,000 miles, $15,000 is too much for what you're looking at.

As far as what to look for, these are some of them. Of course this list is not finale:

all electronics work
air suspension including compressor
a arm bushings
uneven tire wear
indications of water leaking inside
rear AC lines if equipped with rear AC
front and rear diffs
