Excellent versatility in the city
By Magnus on
2005 Land Rover LR3 SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
We've owned an SE for 2 months and 5,000 miles. Fit & finish inside & out is flawless. Mechanically perfect. Rides, handles, accelerates & brakes almost sports-sedan-like. Engine even sounds powerful. Exterior size isn't big, but inside, it "lives" huge. Visibility is very good, especially if you fold down center rear seat. Sunroofs make the interior bright. Seating is very comfortable and roomy in every seat. Ability to lower the vehicle with one switch is very handy for shorter people & dogs to get in/out. Rear seats fold flat easily in many different variations. Transmission "sports" mode allows fast & easy merges with heavy city traffic. Very comfortable on long freeway rides
Cross between a sports car & an SUV. Engine is very powerful. Braking is superb. Turning radius is very tight & front wheels never "scrub." Very good visibility. Excellent head/shoulder/leg room. Fold- flat rear seating, including the 3rd row is wonderful. Third row seat is amazingly comfortable
Horn button is hard to find when you need it!! Console cupholders aren't deep enough to keep tall drinks from tipping out when braking/ accelerating/turning. Driver's seat memory would be nice, as we have 2 drivers. Power seats only move when key is in ignition & on (very inconvenient).
