2006 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Love the ride and comfort. Fuel mileage is better than I expected ( as high as 21 but overall average 16.5). Very quite interior with just the right amount of engine noise under hard acceleration. Navigation system has worked perfectly every time. Exterior design is very eye catching. This vehicle does one thing most other import luxury SUV can't it is rated to tow 7700 pounds. No real problems in almost 3000 miles, only a check engine light that went off on its own ( I think it was the gas cap not on correctly) and a rear speaker cover that keeps falling off.


Best Features

Handling, sound system, navigation system


Worst Features

If Land Rover wants to make this vehicle a 10 the need to do the following 1) Add a power feature to the rear liftgate 2) All windows should be auto up and down not just the drivers 3) Sun roof is a bit small ( make it wider) 4) The rain sensing wiper are way to sensitive.

2006 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Supercharged 4dr SUV 4WD (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

RRS feels so solid and has great acceleration. The ride is a little stiff, but the payoff is the sport car like handling. Very comfortable for its size - top quality materials!!!


Best Features

The solid steering, smooth braking and its sense of center make for a confident drive. The thick steering wheel and ergonomics give you even more reasons to punch it!!


Worst Features

Ignition button with keyless starting or move ignition switch to dash...a little hard to find the ignition hole.

2006 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Supercharged 4dr SUV 4WD (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

My perfect vehicle ... has performance, handling, capacity, styling and, so far, reliability. Have not as yet taken it off road, but good to know I could if needed. I'm a long time Jaguar owner and this engine is as powerful and smooth as I expected...and as much fun to drive as my XK8 !!!


Best Features

Performance and styling...limited edition Vesuvius....I get stopped a lot !!!!


Worst Features

Rear camera instead of sensors and brighter instrument panel.

2006 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I grabbed one of the first Sports to hit the lot in LA and have zero regrets. This SUV is a superb driving machine. But it's not until you het the rain, mud, snow, and ice that you know you got what you paid for - its off-road prowess is unequalled. An unsurpassed engineering marvel! And it looks and drives great, too. Handles like a sport car and accelerates like one, also.


Best Features

Handling, appearance, acceleration. This car is a "looker" and gets noticed. I love driving it and eagerly await every chance to run a canyon. 4 year full-service warranty. All-wheel- drive and air ride suspension. Fine leather interior.


Worst Features

Gas mileage. The silver colored interior door handles are a bit cheesey. For the price, they should be color matched to the interior.

Best Features

Air suspension and exterior styling


Worst Features

only driver has one touch window, sunroof isn't one touch close, back seats are tiny, no power lift gate 15 mpg.
