2006 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
This is a great SUV that's fun to drive. This heavy vehicle is a bit thirsty for fuel, about 16.5 avg. It is a very quality built machine that moves well in sport mode, and even better in the well positioned manual mode. I've driven several vehicles in manual mode and this vehicle is the easiest and ergo thoughtful of all of them, less vehicles with paddle shifters. The interior is classy and with the real wood trim, looks great. With the weight of this vehicle, be prepared to replace brakes every 30k or so, depending on driving habits. The brakes will run about $1,400 at the dealership. Only issue is the rear tailgate struts went out, otherwise, great Sport UV. JG
Fun to drive, great styling, well appointed, comfortable. Soaks up big bumps well and has a quality European feel.
Brakes well, but don't last long. Sunroof drain vents crimped, covered under warranty. Rear tailgate struts don't work. Rear headsets block rear view when up. Should have power steering tilt. Towing package should be standard, lites ($200) and hitch ($300)!
