Don't use a shotgun to kill flies.

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


First and foremost, this is a luxury OFFROAD vehicle. Its onroad performance is on par with the best, but when ice hits the mountains or it rains buckets, I remember why I bought the RRS. I've been places on my property in it, that I'd only been able to hike into before. The interior is ergonomically sound and beautifully executed. The subsystems work quite well and most of the complaints I've heard come from folks who, seemingly, didn't bother to read the manual (s). Also, I don't mind the "bling" factor, but don't use the 20" wheels offroad, or you'll run the risk of pinching a rim. Overall, the RRS is head and shoulders above the rest. If you want a luxury car, buy one, an SUV,the RRS

Best Features

The low end power, feels like pushing the throttles up on a 36' Cabo. Interior appointments, vaultlike build quality, easy engine access for routine checks and fills, split rear hatch, feel of steering wheel and thumb detents, sound system and Sirius, cooler box, and at 3 tons, handles well w/ DRS.

Worst Features

One locking glove box, larger sun roof,add an inclinometer to the 4X4 display, I don't want to fall off the mountain, make floor mats STANDARD !
