Why did we buy an 08 LR2? I love my wife and she never forgave me for dumping the '03. I drove a DKW cross country in the 60's and had less trouble than the '03. After several weeks of ownership I can say that I thoroughly enjoy the styling, ride, performance, and ergonomics of my wife's gray/alpaca LR2.Check back with me on reliability.
Terrain response. We live in the desert and get in the sand and plenty of dirt road driving. Front end is all Land Rover as is cockpit.
No green in the LR2 palette? Not a lot of color choices I wanted to live with. Tambora Flame a popular hue but I thought it would get old quick.
