2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SUV HSE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Best Looking SUV in its class. Too bad Land Rover has not fixed it's mecanical issues. Wait till you get to 25000 mile and the dealer tells you that you need new brakes all around. Dealer won't help nor will Land Rover. They claim this is normal wear and tear. Right!


Best Features

Front end is beautiful. Plenty of power. Stereo is excellent.


Worst Features

Fix your engineering! Bluetooth is horrible. My wife has a Lexus and it is embarrasing to talk on mine. Lexus is superior.

2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SUV HSE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

When first looking at thr RRS I was just in utter amazement. They are a sleek and sexy machine. I have had mine since October 2008 and have no complaints what so ever. It drives like a dream, yes a little heavy but I feel it is needed. It's as nimble as my wife's Volvo S40 t5. In the snow it has proven better than my F-150 or past Jeep Cherokee. Sitting in the driver's seat is like sitting in a fighter jet. Comfortable and everything is within reach and convenient.


Best Features

Driving it everyday and the heads it turns makes you feel just good, mine is the remini red, so it sticks out even more! The sound system will blow you away!


Worst Features

A back up camera might be nice, a heated steering wheel, push button start and maybe an auto open/close tailgate but that would just put it over the top! Hopefully Land Rover is reading these reviews!

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


Review

Have only had it for a week so not much to go on yet, but my first impressions are: one of the best drives out there - seating position is very good and i am an XL size. I had driven the full size Range and the Sport - loved the inside on the full size but this drives so much better - it really drives like a world class sports car.


Best Features

Power, handling, turning radius, very good sound system, very comfortable and supportive seats.


Worst Features

Very hard to understand the lack of basics at this price point such as back up cam - cargo net - heated steering wheel etc. Should offer option for piping on seats. Would sell many more to women if they had and auto lift for the rear hatch. For a great car, product management seems to be asleep!

2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SUV HSE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

It's been a fun experience driving the car. You will also get a lot of compliments -it looks great. The brakes are very good and it handles really well on curves for an SUV.


Best Features

Body style- sound system-super charged wheels.


Worst Features

The HSE needs more power and the exhaust tips should have a sportier look. The current tips are awful- they look out of place even on the super- charged model.

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


Review

Very high coolness factor. Sweet Sounding Supercharged Engine that pushes this ride like an M3. The stereo/dvd system is the best I've experienced in a vehicle. The memory seat buttons are tough to navigate due to space, but other than that the interior is flawless. Needs to have power lift gate for my wife since she is the primary driver :( . Back seats a little rigid and tight for long runs. Auto wipers and seats/steering column a bit quirky. Dealer picks up and delivers. Can't Beat That. At the dealer twice for scheduled maintenance.


Best Features

Strong Audio System, Solid Supercharged Performance, Braking, Comfortable Seats (Front). DVD System, Active Headlights and Suspension.


Worst Features

Power Assisted Tailgate, Navigation (Intuitiveness) Back Seat Comfort
