Great Choice When Off-Road is a Priority
By Jean Orr on
2008 Land Rover LR2 SE 4dr SUV AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)
Have owned since the end of August, & have put 6,000 miles on the vehicle. I bought it because Im a Real Estate Broker and sell large acreage properties upstate NY and wanted a good off-roader that wouldn't break the bank in the mpg department. Also, something with alittle snob appeal to impress my clients. This vehicle fits the bill perfectly--great off-road over hill and dale (and the back 40-- acres--that is), but has a wonderful on-pavement ride, my clients find it very comfortable, love the climate control, visibility, good acceleration, sound system, easy-to- use nav system, and, the interior finish is understated but elegant with nice wood accents. Has been mechanically perfect so far.
Love the exterior design, interior finish, comfortable on-road ride, including the seat design, visibility, easy-to-use nav system, surround sound audio system, integrated bluetooth, &, to top it all off, it had the best mpg rating of any other SUV useful for off- road. (Overall I'm getting 22 mpg).
Needs standard option roof rack, don't care for the sunroof which only opens halfway (and what's with that mesh wind-shield--it's a nasty bug collector!)and needs more storage between front seats.
