2005 Land Rover LR3 SE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


I just ended an almost 18 month relationship with my LR3. At the end, I still loved the style and comfort of the vehicle. However, it's dreadful reliability finally won out. In the time I owned it I fixed a suspension air compressor ($1,200), broken glovebox door ($250), broken keyless entry ($250), and rocker panel trim that fell off bi-annually. When I traded it in it had faulty HDC control, broken pass door lock, and worst of all a bad bearing in the front axle. This was all between 47,000-62,000 miles. On the plus side: good power, decent mileage for a V8 SUV (17+/-), real off-road ability, uniqueness, just right sized for my family. I'd own one again, but ONLY under warranty!

Best Features

300 HP V8, great looking, nice ride, Harmon Kardon stereo, multiple glass roof areas.

Worst Features

Only three: 1) Reliability. 2) Reliability. 3) RELIABILITY!!!
