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


Review

Bought the 2008 supercharged with 8000kms and have been using it for 1 year now....Done just 25000km as of now. Excellent car to drive but with problems of transmission. Gear change was knocking at low speeds. Took the car twice to the agents but came back saying nothing is wrong wasting my time. Third time, I had to insist them to do a proper check and they found that there were residue in the transmission oil. They changed the full transmission (at least this is what they said) and released the vehicle after keeping it for 10 days. Was driving good for 3 months and then came the problem again. Took it to the agent and they have to replace transmission again..8 days and still with agent...

Review

Fourth Range Rover. Supercharged is very powerful with a great drive' look and fit. Nevertheless, terrible reliability!!! Blocks on supercharged not moulded properly. No car for a month while engine repaired. Good warranty but have to spend around $300 at every visit for tire rotation ect. Next problem occured while on interstate as power decreased while in fast lane. Supercharer pump and electrical problem. Unfortunately, dealer where Rover was purchased went out of business and car must be sent 70 miles to nearest dealer. Lots of money for such poor reliability but if near a dealership and admire vehicle, grab one. GREATEST ADVICE, trade before warranty expires!!!!!


Favorite Features

Power, interior fit and overall look.

Review

I have had the car for six months. No issues to speak of. car had a bad window seal which was repaired at purchase. Otherwise, no issues. Car is very quiet and fit and finish is ex excellent. Beutiful and roomy interior. Outstanding sound system. kids love DVD in rear seats. Navigation is easy to use. i don't like voice command. often doesn't understand me. Very fun to drive. Wants to go off- road but is Lexus quiet. Only car that I have had (and I have had some nice vehicles) that I truly enjoy as much now as I did when I purchased it. Hopefully, I will continue to have good luck with it.


Favorite Features

Sound system and interior fit and finish. Great ride quality and very quiet.


Suggested Improvements

Ipod interaction. I think the new one has this feature.

Review

Just ended a 3 yr. lease of Lexus GX470. No comparison between that and the my new RR S/C. I was deciding between the RR and the Mercedes GL450. The Rover without question the best looking and driving SUV on the road. BTW, if you can spend the extra bucks, the bigger engine in the S/C is definitely worth the upgrade. Don't know about the legendary reliability issues yet, but I'm willing to take my chances.


Favorite Features

Luxurious interior. Beautiful exterior. Great ride. Powerful S/C engine.


Suggested Improvements

3rd row seat option would be nice.
