2006 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I have been amazed by the quality and comfort of this SUV since the day I took delivery a year ago. LR has out done themselves with the Sport. It is the most nimble SUV on the road and the best I have ever owned - and I have owned many SUV's. The style and craftmanship are unsurpassed. It blows my old BMW built SUV away on all counts. Pricey, you say. Hogwash, I say. It's worth every penney! A year on the road and it still turns heads. Handles like a sports car, climbs like a billy goat with power to spare. The air ride suspension is amazing.


Best Features

Power, suspension, design, fit and finish. This is a pedigree animal from a long line of champions (except the Discovery of course - yuk). The styling of this SUV is highly attractive and the handling superb. Sleeper of a power-house, it's towing capacity is the same as a Hummer H2.


Worst Features

Gas mileage and dependence on premium fuel? But I suppose that's the price to be paid for a high compression motor with a lot of torque.

Review

Best looking SUV on the planet. Ride and handling are close to the best as well. A real head turner with the guts to do more off road than most are willing to try. A keeper.

Review

This vehicle is mostly just simply a lot of fun to drive. It handles great (for an SUV), feels solid and tight, looks great (you can judge for yourself) --- and wraps you in luxury and more options than I can count. The sound system is outstanding - the best I have ever had in a vehicle (including high-end Mercedes). This is my first Land Rover product and I have been very impressed by the overall quaity of the interior and exterior fit and finish, and the overall feeling of sportiness and luxury. Also, it is actually very spacious on the inside.


Best Features

So far there is nothing not to like, but the sound system is amazingly great.


Worst Features

The only thing I would change would be the rear view from the drivers seat. The headrests obscure some of the rear view.

Review

This is a great vehicle inside out. I love the look of the RRS. Customer Services were great at both location in S. CA area. Problems that I had during my 1st year of ownership: Suspension Faults, compressor problems, Tailgate struts failure, Brakes squeeks after a few thousand miles, Engine Light comes on often, car shut's off by itself very often, Clicking Noise when making turns, rough transmission shifting at low speed, Spent 40+ days in shop. When vehicle is out of the shop: turns head, nice sound system with 6 cd changer that plays MP3. Est. 170 songs per CD. Nice driving position, Air Suspension, Touchscreen Navi & Radio is separate on dash. A++.


Best Features

Headlights are very bright, Air Suspension, Driving Position, Touch Screen Navi and 6cd MP3 Radio system. It's nice that they kept the Navi & Radio seperate. Appearance of the vehicle. Handles very well in Rain. Nice to know that you can go Off- roading. Off-Road for dummies Dial, Cooler,


Worst Features

If Reduce Engine Performance comes on, on your COMMAND CENTER, pull over ASAP because the car will likely shut off on it's own. Reliability is all I ask for. But does it matter....

2006 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Supercharged 4dr SUV 4WD (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

Being a previous owner of 4 Range Rovers and the BMW one can appreciate the differences between them.First off build quality has without a doubt improved through the years, the terrian response system for off roading is nothing short of stellar, and yes i really take it off road. The redesign of the a- pillar has quieted the wind noise nicely from the 2003 rover. The rrs has more room than the X5, rides better etc. A friend has the cayenne s very similar performance with the rover having a much better package (upscale in every department). In short a great car!!!


Best Features

LOOKS!!, ABILITY, the sound from the exhaust, stereo


Worst Features

One touch up and down for all windows, power folding mirrors,
