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


Review

I traded in my 1997 Range Rover 4.6 HSE for the new Range Rover Sport HSE. You get the best of both worlds with the Range Rover Sport: The classic Range Rover styling and off-road capabilities coupled with the performance of a luxury sedan. The design of this vehicle is very upmarket. It is a handsome car. The interior quality is excellent. I have the very rare upgraded "Ivory" leather and cherry wood which looks much more opulent than the darker "Alpaca" and standard black "Ebony" interior. It looks and feels like a fine British coach. (I do wish the seats had darker piping like the big Rover.) Excellent power, handling and ride. Electronics are top notch. All A+


Best Features

The looks. The navigation. The voice command system. The quality of the interior. Great xenons. High quality leather (Lux pkg.) Superb wood. Great handling. Great engine note. Lots of power. Gadgets, gadgets, GADGETS! Two gloveboxes. The ice box.


Worst Features

Erratic transmission shifts at very low speeds. Small sunroof. Only driver's side has auto up/down windows. No split tailgate. Cheap looking radio controls (Should be integrated into nav system like the big Rover.) Better bluetooth integration. Awkward rear headrests. Better tires. Sensitive brakes.

Review

Great vehicle, fun to drive, strong performance, great handling and turns heads everywhere I go. I have only had one consistent problem and that is a "Faulty suspension" indicator that keeps coming on and locking the vehicle in standard height. I have to then restart the car in order to get it to go away. It's finicky and can happen several times in a day. Other than that, one of the best vehicles I ever bought.


Best Features

SUPERCHARGED engine, sound system, terrain response, brembo brakes, dynamic response system.


Worst Features

Ignition switch is in a very difficult spot, maybe move it into the dash. Backup camera, powered liftgate as well. Rear seat head rests are very uncomfortable when they are down and are hard to pull up. Change the tire size to a more popular size for more options. I upgraded my size to a 275/45R20.

Review

Many problems with our RR Sport. Fuel pump went out at less than 500 mi while we were on the interstate. Car came to complete stop, we were nearly killed. 5 months later the differential went, 1 after that back in shop for transmission problems. Back in shop again today at 1 year with bad alternator. Very unreliable for a $65k car. Love the look, comfort, amenities, etc..., but if the car won't run, none of that really matters does it?


Best Features

Interior and exterior appearance. Interior comfort.


Worst Features

Build a car that runs.
