12000 miles of Driving Pleasure

2007 Land Rover LR3 V8 HSE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
We recently went on a family vacation to the US (round trip was about 2200 miles) On the return trip we drove non stop for 17 hours with only four stops for fuel and creature comfort. I continue to be amazed by the LR3's smooth ride and comfort and felt relaxed after 17 hours. The features that were really handy during this trip were the very capable NAV. Voice command and bluetooth were very helpful and allowed me to concentrate on driving. Command shift minimized use of brakes on the highway. The flexibility of the HK sound system was a hit with the kids.

Standard wood trim on HSE and a built in handle on the cover for the cargo are (my wife's Escape has one and it makes it mush easier to pull to the rear of the vehicle from its rolled up position. The sunshades with the panoramic sunroof can be a difficult to keep in place need a better fastener
