not so reliable

2006 Land Rover LR3 HSE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
First Land Rover i've owned kind of disappointed. It's been in the shop too many times in the last year. Plastic Panels on the exterior fallen off 3x, breaks have squeek that dealership has not resolved. It's too bad because i like the ride, great on road trips, although automatic transition through gears could be smoother. There are cheap plastic pieces that cover the front seat tracks affixed to the floor that have cracked in various places, kinda cheap. I have to agree the gas mileage is far from ok, likely $100 to $150/wk in gas. tons of space in the rear w/o the 7 seater, lots of headroom and cabin space. A good friend of mine had his LR3 declared a "lemon"?? Be wary!
suspension controls (been off road couple x and came in handy) touch screen nav is nice option easy to use. lots of cabin space.
window controls too far away from driver. plastic pieces covering front seat rails. plastic exterior on rear of doors has fallen off 3x. only 1 sunroof opens. front seats should have more positions.
