There must be hundreds of these for sale across the country so why buy
one with such high milage? If the engine is fine then you can bet that
the million and one bushes on the suspension will need looking at.
It's worth ultimately as much as any one will pay but having had a few
high milage motors personally I'd keep on looking.
It may be a false economy buying a high milage vehicle hoping for a
cheap vehicle but ultimately it will be down to the luck of the draw.
The other influencing factor would be what miles.. motorway, urban or
farm? Not many businesses will run Landrovers for motorway work. The
remaining two choices mean the vehicle has been well used especially
if it's the latter.
