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


Review

The RRS drives great but, having owned 4 previous Land Rovers, I expected that. This one is, by far, the quickest though. And, it looks great too. Now if the engineers can get the technology up to par with the competition, we would be all set. Case in point: the $2500 rear seat entertainment does NOT come with, nor can it be equipped with, wireless headphones. I usually put all after market entertainment systems in the Rovers but was told NOT to with this one due to integration with the car's computer. So, c'mon guys, let's get a better audio screen and some wireless headphones. I know it can be done...I have done in my last 3 Rovers!!


Best Features

Supercharged engine...quick brakes...cooler box is definitely a hit with the passengers


Worst Features

Wireless headphones for the RES...a stereo screen that doesn't date to 1982...automatic lift & lower of the tailgate (or at least a lighter tailgate)

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


Review

I have had the vehicle for just over two months and 3000 miles. I have been a long time SUV owner(14 years; five other vehicles), most recently in an FX 45. I spent considerable time "shopping" the Land Rover, BMW and Lexus vehicles. This vehicle was far and above the superior in the group. Recently took a 1200 mile trip with the family and found the vehicle to be quite comfortable and a pleasure to drive. At this point I would highly recommend strong consideration of this vehicle.


Best Features

Looks, drive, interior comfort and visibility. Tremendous power with the Jaguar engine. Chose a Luxery package vehicle with dynamic stability in a non-supercharge HSE version and find the cornering stability amazing


Worst Features

electric rear hatch closing assist, like all SUVs need to you improve fuel economy. Am most interested in rumors of diesel version with superior economy in the near future.

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


Review

Awesome ride! Superior handling on city streets. Had somewhat of a slight inconvenience occur while out shopping. Had to FOLLOW the culprits. They were driving a Chevy Impala (Pursuit Package). I was driving my RRS. This baby gets UP!!! I was highly impressed with the performance of this sweet SUV. Only problems have been the reverse tilt-mirror feature activates on its own on some occasions. The suspension warning light occasionally activates and will not allow me to change the height of the vehicle without turning the vehicle off and then restarting it.


Best Features

RRS delivers a sporty, yet sturdy appearance. The rumble at acceleration roars like a tiger.


Worst Features

Change location of the ignition (awkward access). Add hydraulic rear lift gate. Add seat-cooling feature for hot weather. Add one-touch up/down feature to all windows. Add power folding mirrors. Add reverse camera.

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


Review

Just took a quick road trip in my new supercharged sport and I LOVE IT! I wasn't sure about buying an SUV but since my needs were changing & a RS4 no longer made sense I went looking for a sport SUV. The Cayenne-S drive was a disappointment and the X5 doesn't really have enough room so the only option was the RR sport super. Having gone on a road trip there is no question this was the right choice. I wanted performance & this is total performance. Acceleration, handling, braking everything is exceeding my hopes. The interior is beautiful but the drive is what really counts. If the maintenance isn't a prob this will easily be the best SUV for those that really wanted a sports car.


Best Features

acceleration, handling...as close to a sports car as possible. also love the ability to plug my ipod directly into the stereo


Worst Features

so far so good but it's only been a week

Review

Love the ride and comfort. Fuel mileage is better than I expected ( as high as 21 but overall average 16.5). Very quite interior with just the right amount of engine noise under hard acceleration. Navigation system has worked perfectly every time. Exterior design is very eye catching. This vehicle does one thing most other import luxury SUV can't it is rated to tow 7700 pounds. No real problems in almost 3000 miles, only a check engine light that went off on its own ( I think it was the gas cap not on correctly) and a rear speaker cover that keeps falling off.


Best Features

Handling, sound system, navigation system


Worst Features

If Land Rover wants to make this vehicle a 10 the need to do the following 1) Add a power feature to the rear liftgate 2) All windows should be auto up and down not just the drivers 3) Sun roof is a bit small ( make it wider) 4) The rain sensing wiper are way to sensitive.
