2008 Land Rover LR3 V8 SE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Love it! Contrary to some reviews, I like the lumbering feeling in the LR3. Very roomy, very safe. My wife drives my 2 kids around and about, and I am at ease knowing they are in such a solid and safe vehicle. Here is the flaw. After a severe fall rain storm, my wife opened the door of our LR3 and water poured out of the front passenger seat. The dealer told me that leaves clog the soffet for the moon roof drainage system. The H20 has no where to go, so it falls inside the car. She said it is a design flaw for all 3 models. She knew exactly what it was when I called it in. If you garage your LR3, then don't sweat it. If you have a garage that is too low for the LR3. Heads up!

Best Features

Clam shell style tail gate. Height off of the ground. Roominess. Solid feel. Stunning good looks. Stereo system. Glass roof

Worst Features

Big soffet drainage, so it doesn't spill over into the front seat. Better fuel system. Make seat memory standard. I am 6'1'', my wife is 5'1''. On a rainy day, I get all wet.
