2008 Land Rover LR3 SE-Excellent Condition

Owned and driven by Thomas G. Lederer, Hauppauge, LI, NY

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a meticulously maintained Land Rover LR3 with relatively low miles.  After an exhaustive search lasting over a year, I found this LR3 on in the summer of 2015 at a Porsche dealership in NJ. It had the color, age, miles, and  equipment that I had been targeting.  The exterior is Stornaway Grey with Ebony black leather interior.

A friend at a Honda store here on Long Island acquired it for me, I bought it from him, and I was able to acquire a 2-year Land Rover factory service contract from Land Rover Glen Cove.  Whatever needed fixing was done at Land Rover Huntington, whether or not it was covered by the warranty.  I got the truck with 75k miles on the odometer and now that number is about 86k.  I have never driven it off-road.

Some of the work that has been performed on my LR3 over the past two years (other than frequent oil changes) include:  New brake pads and rotors front and rear December 2017, New cubby box lid; new wiper blades; tie-rod ends (78k miles;) wheel alignment (78k miles); front hub and bearing (76k miles); front/rear lower control arm bushings (76k miles); battery 76k miles, Oct 2015); hood switch and latch (alarm issue, 75k miles); installed LR4-style front grille, a new fuel tank shroud, gear shifter assembly. There is no rust or body damage on the vehicle, except for some of the usual dings expected to be found on a 10-year old Rover. There is a tear–almost microscopic–in the leather on drivers door panel but the leather is otherwise in excellent shape.  Plenty of tread depth left on the 265/60R18 Toyo Proxes GT M&S’s.

When I worked for Land Rover Long Island, I drove LR3’s and Range Rover Sports for almost 10 years.  Rovers are my preferred form of transportation because of their size and rugged ride, but I just leased an Audi Q7 and a deal I made with my wife compels me to part with the LR3, as painful as that might be!  I will consider any serious offer over $10k.
