Have you ever heard the old adage, “a boat is like a hole in the water where the owner dumps money? “It appears that there’s a similarity between that piece of advice and one automaker. A popular YouTuber, known for his automotive expertise, says one vehicle is like a money pit.
Scotty Kilmer has been an auto mechanic for over 50 years. He knows his business. Kilmer has a popular YouTube channel, which covers a myriad of automotive issues. His videos warn people about potential problems with certain cars, plus he offers helpful automotive advice.
In a recent warning, Kilmer tells his viewers to avoid a particular automaker. Kilmer says its cars are an “endless money pit.” What’s the automaker? The man with experience to back up his opinion says that Land Rover repairs can bleed an owner dry.
He discussed recent models from the British carmaker. One was a scaled-down version of the larger Land Rover. The crossover version incorporated the telltale attribute of being able to plow through snow and muddy conditions.
However, this model allowed owners to squeeze into the notoriously small parking spots in urban areas. It was sort of a win-win for SUV lovers. Nevertheless, Kilmer went on to forewarn potential Land Rover buyers of the big question.
How many mechanical headaches should owners expect? Kilmer was pretty blunt. He referred to the Land Rover as an “endless money pit.” To make his comparison, Kilmer used Toyota. Researching the Japanese carmaker, he uncovered “a list of 15 common things that go wrong.”
When Kilmer dug into the Land Rover, he said he found “like 85 pages of problems.” He continued to explain why he thinks the current prices for Land Rovers have dropped. Kilmer says that selling Land Rovers has become a challenge for dealers.
Potential new owners are now aware of how expensive they are to maintain. He attributes this disparity in mechanical problems to poor workmanship. Kilmer argues that “Land Rovers are the worst-built vehicles in the world.” This sounds like more good advice from an automotive expert.
