Considering adding an LR3 to the garage. Needs to be a v8 7 seater. Don't want/need a project but don't want/need a showroom truck either. Indifferent to mods. Essentially looking for a soccer mom vehicle, prefer proximity to VA or ME. What's out there?

Not selling our 05 anymore (decided to keep it for a land truck) but I will say this, it has been the most reliable vehicle we have ever owned. The prices seem to have hit bottom for the first year (05) at around $9k. I paid $10k about 5 years ago.

Call Mike Holland or Freddy at Holland's garage in Guilford, CT. They love LR3s and pick them up opportunistically to straighten up and sell. I think they have a few on the lot right now and could help get the right spec/price range/condition.

Pros
Body is very straight
No signs of rust
Has a really nice ARB front bumper and Warn XD9000 winch
Also has a roof rack

Interior is Nice - but has a tear on the top of the center console

Cons
It’s not the youngest LR3 out there as it has traveled 233,000 miles
We hadn’t driven it for 6 months until today & it fired right up which was a good sign - however there is definitely as issue with the suspension - it may be a simple sensor fix - but We would need to check the codes before saying for sure.

I truly don’t know where to price it but will give it some thought.
Cheers
