2006 Land Rover LR3 HSE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
This truck is driven mostly as a family shuttle and grocery getter. But there's the occasional roadtrip up and down the east coast, when I really make use of the 300HP and command feature. This truck comes alive at high speeds and the ride feel solid, but luxurious. Poor on gas, but what do you expect from a 3 ton truck. I suggest replace the air filter with a K & N for better fuel mileage and performance. I really enjoy the LR3's blend of the utilitarian look with the luxury amenities. If you're in the market for a purposeful luxury truck, the LR3 is the quentatiential vehicle for you. It doesn't scream poseur, ostentatious, or what’s the point like many competitors.
The 3rd row seats and cooler box are my favorite features. I also like the Terrain Response System. I've used it numerous time in urban dridlock situations from climbing stairs to fording through street floodings.
The HEADREST! please make that thing adjustable. Please reposition the memory seat controls they are difficult to get to when the door is closed. Replace Goodyear at OEM tires, they diminish the ride quality, are noisy, and reduce the effective of the terrain response system. Update the interior.
