New Range Rover Sport HSE in California
By Randy on
2006 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
I have about 2,000 miles on the new HSE. Terrific SUV. Previously have had Yukon, GMC Envoy, and BMW X-5 3.0. This vehicle makes the others look, drive and feel cheap IMO. Love the styling, the "Luxury Package" option is a MUST! Much better grade/quality of leather in the luxury option, as well as the "turning" bi-xenon headlights. Wonderful german-made ZF 6 speed automatic. Great air suspension ride. Also have this same supension in my Bentley Continenatal GT and Mercedes S55AMG. Makes THIS S.U.V. drive like a car, not like a truck. IMO, RIP-OFF $130 for injection molded plastic "cradle" that you MUST have to mount the Nokia phone to this model! I love this SUV!
The ride, the looks, the seat comfort.
Door hinges/doors close "sloppy/tinny" like my Ford truck. Suggest Mercedes- style really good door strikers/receivers, to give it a more positive "clunk" door close feel/sound. Mine has "Alapaca" beige interior. Guys, make a carpeted rear mat in the same color!!! I can't use BLACK!
