I've had my LR2 16 months now. I love it. It has never let me down. I have had a few minor problems that the dealer was happy to fix. They even fixed the minorist of complaints. I asked them to readjust my windshield wiper spray and my headlights. The car is excellent in the mountains, excellent in the snow and an excellent daily driver. I have great confidence in my Rover and wouldn't hesitate to drive it anywhere.
Love the headlights, the sound system is great (although I love more bass), I love the height of the seats. I feel like I can see where I'm going. Oh, and the brakes really work. I bought the dog gate and there's a surprising amount of room back there for two big dogs.
Since the brakes are huge, I hate the break dust. Perhaps the newer wheels have a better finish. Interior storage on my early model was lacking and they didnt install a left foot rest so the carpet gets dirty.
