2007 Land Rover LR3 V8 HSE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

This is my favorite SUV! Waited to write review in case I had reliability issues that I had read on this site - 9 months/20K KM and nothing so far. Compared to my past Escalade, Denali, Touareg, Jeep GC ltd, and MB 430, my Rover is way more fun, sturdy yet nimble, tows with ease, has more versatile interior space, much quieter cabin, better road view & headlighting, most headroom, and all the luxuries to boot. Not quite as quick as Touareg (V10 mind you!), 5.4L Jeep, or MB430, but shift into sport and it provides more than enough power for the average Joe. Breaking is strong and confident for a vehicle this size. Purchased the LR3 over the Lexus 470 & Audi Q7 - glad I made the right decision!


Best Features

Lowers to fit into any garage; double door back hatch; 3 12V plugs; autodim mirror feature works the strongest I've seen; center console cooler; variety of 4WD settings; easily navigated northern ONT roads in 07/08 during the worst Canadian winter I can remember; so ugly it's cute.


Worst Features

Diesel option; mirror mounted compass; rain sensing wiper system could be a little less sensitive; factory DVD (but 12V plug access behind center console easily permits mounting of mobile unit on top of center console); auto retract for side view mirrors; seats could be a bit softer

2007 Land Rover LR3 V8 HSE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I love my vehicle. It runs smooth and no problems what so ever. I don't like the fact I get 15 miles per gallon. One stumbling block I have had is I bought a boat recently and now need a hitch. The dealer quoted me almost $800 for a hitch. If you don't need a hitch and don't care about gas mileage this is the greatest SUV.


Best Features

I love my heated seats and my Sirius radio.


Worst Features

Improvements can be the gas mileage.

2007 Land Rover LR3 V8 SE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Each day of driving I am more pleased with the LR3. I have accrued 4000 miles so far and have enjoyed every one of them. The vehicle is a bit heavy, but has a very smooth & comfortable ride. The 4.4 liter V8 performs well in all normal day to day driving conditions. Some dedicated studying is required to make full use of the stereo & climate interfaces. Though overall, this vehicle gives its driver an incredible sense of poise & stability....rain or shine, but especially rain!


Best Features

Electronic air ride suspension. Exceptional handling


Worst Features

It would be nice if the 12v power outlets would function when the vehicle is off

Review

People and magazines have said LR's aren't reliable, but so far not a single problem. I like this SUV better than any of my past vehicles- Jeep Grand Cherokee, MB ML320, Cadillac SRX, Infiniti QX4. All those trucks had numerous service issues(except Infiniti).


Best Features

Suspension/off road system. Quiet cabin.


Worst Features

Radio should have aux input in dash, not rear of center console. MP3 playback display to cryptic. Ignition key way too big and clumsy.

Review

Everyone expects a lot of vehicle at this price point, $40k - $50K. I had researched and shopped the Toyota Highlander, Buick Enclave, Mazda CX-9 and the Honda Pilot. For the bottom dollar cost - the LR3 had the most standard amenities and safety features by a long shot at this price point. At the upper levels of any of the models I looked at, they all came within a stone's throw of my purchase price. This SUV is extremely secure in all driving conditions. Driving in downtown Chicago, this car handles stop and go traffic with ease. Very strong braking and sufficient acceleration with the V8. Highway driving is whisper quiet - and there's no other SUV that has a better driving position.


Best Features

Air suspension/height adjustment. Extremely comfortable seats. Interior space and storage. Seat configuration options. Handling. Split tailgate (clamshell)


Worst Features

A DVD entertainment system should be an manufacturer's option at this price point - and not a dealer added option.
