2008 Land Rover LR2 HSE 4dr SUV AWD (3.2L 6cyl 6A)


I just purchased a used 2008 LR2 HSE with 18K miles in October 2009 and have been extremely happy with the purchase. Had concerns about purchasing an LR based upon reports of mechanical and reliability issues, but after speaking to LR owners and mechanics, it appears the newer models have come a long way. Owner loyalty appears to be solid. Positives: handles great, comfortable to drive, great front seats, gas mileage (18- 24), Engine Power, Alpine Stereo, and Bluetooth Technology. Complaints: Need 1-3 feet of more rear cargo space to help with storage, and rear seating space to allow for rear seats to recline for passenger comfort. No roof racks and no mud flaps came with my HSE model.

Best Features

Styling, Engine Power, Front Seats, Alpine Stereo, Gas Mileage, Bluetooth Technology, Visibility, AWD Features, and 6 Speed Transmission Options (auto- manual), Sun Roof with wind deflection and sun block netting....very nice. Heated Windshield and Heated Seats

Worst Features

More Cargo Space (1-3 feet), More Rear Seating Leg Room, Rear Seat Recline Options to help with passenger comfort, Change the Key-Ignition Feature....too many things can go wrong with the auto-key insert and push button start. My HSE model came with no roof racks or mud flaps. Should be standard....
