Review

Can not figure out what the rattle is under car, sounds like something is going to fall out sometimes. Not sure what to even look for and when going to dealer they act as if nothing is wrong. Has anyone experienced familiar issue??

Review

Bought used with 33k miles. Subaru driver needed a Schedule 179 vehicle for tax purposes. Averages 19 mpg on my commute, 21.5 on a run to Palm Springs down Hwy 5. Love the ride, sound system, navigation, turning radius. Does everything without drama. Freeway on ramp merge speed? No problem, put in sport mode and it winds to 7000 rpm like NOW and you are flying. Want to climb an impossibly steep trail? No problem, put it in low range and up you go. Brakes feel like you threw out an anchor. Big control knobs and buttons fit my stubby fingers and just feel right. I love this rig.


Best Features

Power, ride, quiet cabin, handling, braking, comfort, sound system and style


Worst Features

Heated seats and mirrors should be standard.

Review

This vehicle is like driving on a cloud. It's smooth, comfortable, wraps around the driver and seems to float. It corners well, shifts very smoothly and will turn around on a dime. The gas economy is not wonderful but a fair trade for the safe and secure feeling it provides. I've had it on an off-road adventure and it really taught me what the vehicle would do. I would take it anywhere...in comfort!


Best Features

Dual glove compartments - very handy for a woman in construction. Viewing all the settings on the control panel


Worst Features

I would like to have one a/c adapter connection stay hot even when the engine is off.

2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SUV Supercharged 4dr SUV 4WD (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

This RRS-SC has been an excellent car. Time to turn it in and will miss it. The performance and all around cool factor of this car compensates for the back seat comfort, quirky nav system and cumbersome tailgate. This is my wife's kid hauler, but I drive it every chance I get. No problems with anything other than a window lift in the first month. If you want to drive an SUV with SWAG this is the one.


Best Features

Supercharged Engine, Directional Headlights, Stereo and Design


Worst Features

Heavy Rear/Tailgate. Nav. System

Review

I've slowly moved up from the disco 2 to the lr3 to the rrscs and I gotta tell you this truck is slick and fast. I usually drive on the highway and going from ramp speed to highway speed is a dream. Put this thing in sport mode and two things happens, it sucks a lot of gas but also an adrenalin rush. I've had no issues other than a having to replace a fuse for the heated seats and the drivers airbag sensor. While I'm at it I must also say that no Major issues to report in regards to the lr3 and disco 2.


Best Features

Speed, handling, looks (style), dependability, value, performance, comfort, navigation, cooler.


Worst Features

gas mileage, loud windshield wipers
