1998 Range Rover 4.0
Quick Question for the Forum:
Sister is looking to buy a New Jeep Wrangler, she is 20 yrs old in college and somehow has saved up $15,000.
She wants to lease one or buy it new. I told her she is foolish for this and to look at one used if she is dead set on a wrangler.
Guy in my office overheard the call and he has a 1998 Range Rover with 80,000 miles on it. Hunter Green 4.0, no accidents basically always used as a third car. He said the only issue is that it probably needs a new battery and alternator because his family never uses it. He would part with it for $5,000.
Told my sister this is a no brainer. Advising my family to take it to Land Rover and have them give it a once over, we have a family friend there.
Before i go through the motions with this, how much is an alternator, should i be concerned that the car has rarely been driven over the past few years.
The paint is good, the inside is clean, overall in very good shape. (taking his word for it for now)
ANY INPUT WOULD BE HELPFUL.
