2006 Land Rover LR3 HSE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
Owned the LR3 for over a month and we love it. It is fully loaded. It is so versatile, loaded with all the luxury features anyone could need. So far no issues at all, it runs great and has wonderful road presence, plenty of power w/V8. Our dealer is wonderful, and if something does happen, so what, we drive another Land Rover. How is that a bad thing? Plus no cost maintenance. Most people dream of driving such an awesome truck. Bottomline - If people could afford to drive them, everyone would. We feel very fortunate to own this vehicle.
All the tech is working fine. Bluetooth phone is nice to have and really think the HIDs are super. The split tailgate is good design. Feel like we can drive thru anything. My combined MPG is 17.5, so not too bad at all for 5700lb truck.
Never can have enough engine power. Squeeze more out of the V8 or eventually put a nice turbo diesel in it for max torque. Ventilated seats would be a dream addition.
