2006 Land Rover LR3 SE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

The car is absolutely awesome. It is like having McGyver with you at all times. If you want perefection, I would look elsewhere (generic, blend with all, and is that my car?). Think of it as a thoroughbred, the care and feeding are most crucial.


Best Features

Suspension, ride quality, eccentric


Worst Features

Body side moldings to help prevent dings

2006 Land Rover LR3 HSE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

What a surprise my wife and I received after driving the LR3. WE drove all the other models including the new Acura MDX, the new Volvo and the new BMW X5. They were all good, but not great. The LR3 drove as good or better than all of them. It was very comfortable on the highway, tight and responsive, all the bells and whistles and more, including the GPS, fold down second and third seats, unique Europeon styling and one of a kind looks. Give it a try before you make that final decision. After 3 months, not one problem, as good as the day we drove it off the lot.


Best Features

Unique style, voice activated GPS, front and back accident avoidance sensors, solid and rugged appearance, tight and comfortable ride, dealership involvement.


Worst Features

none

Review

Please read this. You don't deserve to endure what I've endured over 1.5 years. I've had the entire fuel assembly replaced; the entire air compressor suspension replaced; the air bag assembly replaced; the radio (twice) and the inside of the rear tires are bald while the outside are in fine shape, due to a major suspension design flaw. It now lives in the garage until my lease is up (I rent cars to travel for my job.)


Best Features

If I can safely get to a mountain, it holds the road very well.


Worst Features

Recall the entire vehicle and replace it and acknowledge that you create a bottom-of-the-barrel product with an expensive price tag.

Review

On a whim went for a test drive & I have to say the ride surprised me. I came away wanting to buy the car but needed to do some ‘web’ research. I found so many negative reviews, the fuel economy & bad reliability that I rang the dealer & declined the deal we had discussed. A couple of days later I felt the pain of ‘non buyers remorse’ I dug deeper & found the fuel economy is really no different to any other SUV of this size and capability. I went back, got the car, The fuel economy on commute is ~16mpg. When I drive, it feels like I should take a picnic to a polo game. This is without a doubt a car that makes you feel good and well worth the time to investigate properly.


Best Features

Visibility, style and feel of ride. VOX bluetooth is pretty snappy also


Worst Features

remote start (love that and haven't had it yet, Auto tilt-in side mirrors when parked
