Fun to Drive
By forester2 on
2009 Land Rover LR2 HSE 4dr SUV AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)
This is a fun car to drive and is amazingly capable. It is truly a 4X4 and is not just a car with an all wheel drive attached. It handles like a sports car around town and a jeep off road. I have been driving 4X4s at work for near 35 years and can't believe how this rig takes all the drama out of muddy roads. This is a real 4X4 and Land Rover stuffed in about every technical option available somewhere into this high quality rig. No problems so far.
Never met an option I didn't like and this has lots! The terrain response system is not a toy. Drove mine home from the dealer in an ice storm and never slipped a tire. The suspension is out of this world. Solid as a rock in the corners and smooths out potholes. Love the heated front windshield. I like the dorky key thingy.
Bring back the free 50,000 maintenance. I would like to see an under hood light. Hard to check in oil in a dark garage. Make the 18" rims standard. More tire options and more rubber between potholes and rim.
