2005 Land Rover LR3 SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 6A)
First Land Rover after dreaming for years. Big change from Discovery. Exceptional in every way. Rides like being on a cloud, but goes anywhere. Passengers/customers love going over obstacles. It seals the deal. It is so smooth that I really have to watch speed as at 100-110 mph I still think I am going 70 mph. Dealer excellent. Mileage 14/18 (for 3 1/2 tons) but tired of hearing people complaining that it doesn't get the same mileage as their previous economy car. Duh! Compare its mileage, capabilities, handling and comfort to the Hummer H1 or Mercedes G55 which have the same capabilities, and it's half the price.
Class act, beautiful styling, incredible ride, super fast, and a hoot to drive.
Goodyear Tires last about 15,000 and cost $1800 plus $280 to align and balance. Even given the weight, we should still be able to get 25000 miles per set, as reasonable. Get Michelin to make this size.
