I think it would depend on a number of things.Most important being how well it has been maintained.

I have 120,000 miles on my 97 Discovery and it runs like it's still new. As with ALL cars I am sure there will some that die very early and others that will run forever.

You should check out the Range Rover heading. One of the threads is all about how many miles does your Rover have. I'm currently at 167,000-ish with my 1990 RR County, and it's still going strong.

Also, "rebuilt" is such a vague term. If you mean a rebuilt engine, well, maintenance is the key to avoid that. If you mean "I have replaced every moving, non-moving, lubricated, should be lubricated, electrical and grounded part on the thing except the steering wheel at least once" then yes, you might have to rebuild it.

My 01' D2 had 133k on when totalled, aside from the usual problems I never had a valve job, no major work on motor, orig transfer case and transmission,original front and rear diffs/axles, etc., even had all original radiator hoses on it.

My 96' has 130 k on it. It did have a blown head-gasket when I bought it so I had that done and valve job, radiator, new water pump, new oil cooler and power steering hoses. No problems so far. (Had about 119k on it when I bought it). I'm not particularly worried about it. Should last a long time if maintained properly and not totally abused.

It's very much like guessing how long anyone will live.

Saw a 1970 Toyota Land Cruiser 6 cyl Diesel with 1.1 mil km's on. No rebuild, same enjin, in daily use on a vegitable farm.

I am on 340 000 miles with one full rebuild at 335 000 Miles.(need to change my Signiture!)
