2008 Land Rover LR2 SE 4dr SUV AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)
Good looking and fun to drive when it works. However, this is the least utilitarian sport utility ever. Clearly a vehicle designed as a tall station wagon for soccer moms and was a big let-down as my first Land Rover. Second sunroof was a cool feature until I discovered that prevented me from having a roof rack, and bumper design made a putting on a hitch a very expensive custom job. The seat heaters drained the battery if you forgot to turn them off and the crazy windshield wipers are $60 each. Also, dependability was surprisingly poor. 2nd week off the lot the car stalled and died on me and wouldn't start again. Pretty embarrassing as I was on a 2nd date. I will NEVER buy LR again!
Good looks. Sturdy body for a smaller SUV. Adequate power.
Wind noise with windows or sunroof open was very bad. Fuel economy was very poor and could only take mid- grade or better. Need to put the Utility back in Sport Utility and have cargo/equipment racks and tow hitches in mind.
