ReviewSo far, this vehicle is all it can be. The steering and brakes are excellent, ditto for overall handling & response at all speeds. The sweet spot for maximum MPG on the highway is around 66-67 mph - I have cruised to the tune of 22.7+ MPG. Just don't drive like a fool around town and you may inch to 16 MPG. Nothing major to take issue with, aside from petty annoyances that were more than answered on the web site - excellent training videos for all aspects of the car. I came to aquire this car through a series of fortunate events, had I paid the full $62,000 I might be singing a different tune. I have driven many vehicles since 1970, now I get it about LR. Nice car if you can afford.
Best FeaturesSafety features, over-the-road perfor- mance, visibility, V-8, wipers, exter- ior lighting, seat configuration & leather, entire audio/video system, 2 gloveboxes, nooks & cranies, dash- board configuration, climate control (once mastered). Looks of envy from motorists & neighbors certainly don't hurt.
Worst FeaturesBetter tires, better MPG :), fix voice recognition so it does, avail support personnel upon purchase, make manuals user friendly. Land Rover, N.A. should mandate a course to be attended by all retail personnel: "Human Relations Skills". A thick service line is drawn against non local purchasers.
