2005 Land Rover LR3 SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 6A)
The LR3 is hugely impressive. It tows our 4000 lbs boat with ease. The LR3 has a huge cargo area and seats that fold flat quickly and easily. You can fit a six foot tall adult easily and comfortably in every seat. It's easy to see out of and park the LR3 because of its relatively small proportions and huge windows. Another impressive part of the LR3 is its extensive warranty and the dealer's service programs. The air suspension is a nice feature, because it means that the car can be low for access or higher for snow, towing, or off roading. This SUV feels solid, but suprisingly nimble on the road and in snow or ice sticks to the road like no other vehicle.
Towing capability, space, safety, comfort, and dealer service. Feels solid and unstoppable in bad weather.
The gas mileage is very bad, 13 mpg in our expirience and the air supension, which has required a replacement compressor three times, once in a recall and twice for unknown reasons, but it gets fixed under warranty.
