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

Review

Gambled and bought a Rover - and glad I did. Buying experience fantastic. Car is rock-solid - like driving a vault, very BMW-esque. It feels heavy (and makes my larger GMC Yukon seem flimsy in comparison). Thought at first that it was underpowered, but at about 500 miles it loosened up - and the mileage got better too. Suspension sporty but not too rough. Build quality appears to be excellent. Things that at first seemed not to work correctly were actually just a lack of knowledge on my part. It's a complicated machine and it takes some time and effort to understand (but some controls are just bizarre and unintuitive, i.e. radio tuning). Owner's manual worth studying closely!

Favorite Features

Beautiful design in and out. Air- conditioned seats. Feels safe and solid on the road, and handles incredibly well despite it's heavy weight. Excellent driving position. Love its "presence" - which of course is why people buy Range Rovers. Valet parkers keep it out front.

Suggested Improvements

Diesel engine for the US models. Why not? It's available in the UK versions. I'd buy it. Separate some of the functions currently integrated into the navigation screen - complicated submenus and subscreens are a distraction when driving.
