2005 Land Rover Range Rover HSE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)

Review

We bought this truck a few years ago as a b-day present to replace my husband's aging '01 RR 4.6 HSE. After buying several brand new and slightly used cars, I decided upon a pre-owned, still-under-warranty '05 RR (which is THEE way to go since you let others pay $30k more for the same vehicle to determine if it's solid, or a lemon). And this beast is one impressive machine: it's amazingly torquey and can induce whiplash if you've got a heavy foot, it has a cavernous interior, gigantic, ultra-comfortable seats, intuitive and well laid out touch screen, insane, gale-force A/C, and unsurpassed build integrity. But, it is anemic at speeds above 30mp & could use a few more tech features. Love it!

Best Features

Luxury of a 7-series. Insane low speed engine torque. Unsurpassed seat comfort. Tornado-esque A/C. ERGONOMICS. Look-at-me styling. Puts a smile on your face every time you climb aboard. ***Ahem*** Reliability... Peace of mind in knowing that we can ford whatever mother nature has to throw our way.

Worst Features

Not enough gadgets and do-dads to compete with its European competitors - come on, no auxiliary hook-ups for iPods or Zunes?! Needs another 50hp to pass people at speeds above 30mph. Heated steering wheels is more a suggestion than a feature. Over aggressive ventilation system - a curse and blessing
