Fun to drive plus much more

2008 Land Rover LR3 V8 SE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
Great vehicle, went from a fully loaded Toyota 4runner to LR3 and after way to many years in a Toyota found something more fun, limited owner group and great dealer support. I recommend changing tires to standard SUV tires and watch fuel economy go up by 1 - 2 miles per gallons and better ride and longer life. Put 2 extra pounds of pressure in tire and she really sails down the interstate. 3rd row is awesome design compared to everything else in this class. Looking forward to the LR4. Trade off from the Toyota is better space, better visibility and after changing tires better fuel economy. Drawbacks is number of dealers but quality has been great.
3rd row comes in extremely handy, 3 row sunroof is also appreciated then comes heated windshield and 2nd row seat heater - my girls have loved it.
Get rid of high dollar performance tires and go with good SUV tires, you'll lose a little sticky but I've yet to slalom a 4600lb SUV.
