I got my LR2 as a winter car last October. I was well aware of Land Rover's past reliability problems. I have to say that I love my LR2. Some claim it has poor performance for a luxury SUV, but I think it does fine. I have a G35 coupe as well, and I don't think the LR2 is slow for an SUV, and I don't expect it to be a race car. Overall, it's a great ride for someone who wants a very comfortable plush smaller SUV with eye-catching style and lots of technological bells and whistles without paying a fortune. If you want a full-size SUV, it'll disappoint. If you want a car-like SUV, probably not for you. But if you want an SUV for winter driving and occasional trips, the LR2 rocks
I absolutely love the puddle lights that illuminate under the mirrors when you unlock the car. My other favorites have to be the bluetooth, which works great with my Verizon Moto RAZR, the automatic wipers and headlights, and the phenominal sound system. The dual sunroofs are nice too
I only have one complaint: fuel economy. It's not setting any records here. I will admit, for a mid/small SUV, it is quite heavy, and I'm sure that contributes to the low MPG.
