Love Scotty's YouTube videos. I own a 2006 Land Rover LR3 V8 w/225K miles. Have owned it for 10 years and when running properly a perfect daily driver for the Colorado mountains where we live; but, I have had the normal long list of minor to mid-level repairs (most I do myself) over the years and am now looking toward a replacement.
I've heard Scotty's message loud and clear "Toyota Good", "Land Rover Bad!!!". So, I've been looking at the used market and weighing switching to a 4Runner v. another LRx. In a case where prices are identical the decision toward Toyota would be easy given its similar capability and reliability; but, if I look at real prices, and a vehicle with sub-100K miles, the Toyota's are pushing $20K, while the LR3's that are familiar to me can be had for $8-10K. Thus, I'm thinking another LR3 with $10K cash left in my hand to handle maintenance versus the 4Runner sounds a little compelling. I'm curious what the board thinks and if I'm crazy to look at it like this? The Land Rovers have experienced serious depreciation and for good reason; but, is there any point on the price scale where they become a good deal?
