Car is a bargain for the money. Lots of thought went into it, lots of standard equipment. Engine is good, not overly robust, but good. Road characteristics are great and car is quiet. Seating position is very good. HVAC system is excellent. Car should go a long way to erase old stereotypes of Land Rovers. Liked the fact that Ford owned company, don't know how the new owner, TATA will favor. High-intensity headlight option package is terrific, worth the money.
Like all the standard features, like build quality, like in-line 6 Volvo engine. Like the interior materials. Like the warranty. Like the handling of the vehicle, off-road characteristics are tremendous. Like the fact that Ford put a lot of their product and engineering into the vehicle.
Needs homelink and a left foot dead pedal, needs a better latch mechanism on retractable sunscreen. Don't like the emergency driver-door entry key system or the requirement for premium fuel. Could use a "real" center storage compartment. Nav system should be a single option W/O tech package.
