2005 Land Rover LR3 SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 6A)

Review

The LR3 is powerful, safe, and spacious for a mid-sized SUV. While the vehicle may turn out less reliable than some competitors, my experience so far has been delightful. In a recent round trip from the Jersey Shore to Buffalo, NY, the vehicle performed exceptionally in both dry weather and driving snow, on ice and through slush. I was able to maintain full control of the vehicle at a reasonable speed even in the worst weather, all the while experiencing the comfort and convenience of the vehicle's interior. The only negatives with this vehicle so far are: the poor fuel economy (expected) and the lack of an 8-way driver's seat, which is inexcusable (esp. since LR promised it).

Best Features

The engine is powerful & strong; the handling is smooth; & the terrain response provides plenty of traction and steering through any conditions. In addition, I appreciate the active roll mitigation and other techno- features that prevent driver stupidity. Last, the third row is most comfortable.

Worst Features

1st, the vehicle should have an 8-way electronic adjustable driver's seat, as LR stated in its materials. 2d, the seat should have 2-driver memory. 3d, the key fob should be illuminated or colored to see the keys at night. 4th, the nav system is priced too high; I replaced it with a portable one.
