Don't buy a Range Rover!

Not sure why, they seem like pretty decent rides... but there's a commercial that airs on TV, showing a variety of scenes of Range Rovers driving around. It shows them cruising the open highway, pulling up in front of elegant venues, even rolling along a dirt road. Nothing extreme... just driving around.

And the caption/ disclaimer at the bottom of the screen reads: "Closed course, Professional drivers. Do not attempt."

I guess one had better not attempt to drive one around...

Most range rovers have Low profile tires that look the same as tires you see on a Camaro ZL1.

i DON'T see how that would be a good tire to have for an SUV but whatevah

Practically every car commercial has that same disclaimer.

Because they don't make a good SUV to start with.

My uncle has a Range Rover. It's a nice vehicle but don't make the mistake he did and try to take it off road. It's a royal joke if you try to use it for what it's suppose to be intended for.
