Has not met expectations
By Charles from Canada on
2007 Land Rover LR3 V8 HSE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
Replace our Honda Pilot with this and not sure it was the best move. At times the LR3 is great and a cool car with great features and technology, but the reliability and service has been poor. Also the handling is not good and the fuel mileage is a disaster. We generally enjoy it with the family, but glad we leased because this vehicle unfortunately has caused too many problems. Our Cadillac SRX blows this vehicle away in every regard and every day the short stick gets to drive the LR3.
Interior space, design, seat comfort, excellent navigation system, DVD system for kids, sound system, 40/10/40 rear seats, excellent in snowy conditions, full-size 3rd row seats good enough for adults, bluetooth for phone
Handling is truck-like and not at all confidence inducing, V8 engine noisy, expensive to operate because of terrible fuel economy, lots of electrical and mechanical problems which take forever to solve and are never 100% taken care of. Needs satellite radio, Ipod connection.
