2007 Land Rover Range Rover Sport HSE 4dr SUV 4WD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

So currently I have had my 07 have for about 2 years. Repairs are all standard maintenance stuff. Brakes, tires, oil etc.
Find a local to work on these items or do yourself and it saves a bunch.
The non standard items to watch is #1 the air ride. When air ride goes generally starts as a bag or valve and then will overwork your compressor and you will replace that too... This will run $2500 if you do the bags and compressor at the same time. Brake rotors are another one. If these go use the aftermarket upgrades out as they are far superior to the stock rotors.
Other item is the sidemarker light.
This this once it goes bad will haunt your dashboard display. This really needs to be a recall item...
I now have 138000 on my hse and it runs great! I have towed a small bobcat tractor in excess of 6000 lbs. Even though the vehicle is rated for 7700 the hitch is probably only good for 5500 as you have to use an extender which lowers the capacity rating. I really use my hse for daily driver, heavy hauler and Saturday night pimp whip (so it has been called). Don't let all the negative hype keep you from buying one of these. If you want a ride that makes you feel good, can tow and get you from A to B with some style.... This is the right choice.

Review

Where to begin? I live, work in wash DC, 33 month old vehicle has 27,000 miles. Performance: this winter had 3 major snow storms, had to be pushed out of snow three times in this "go anywhere, do anything" vehicle. Woefully underpowered, acceleration terrible, Burns gas like Boeing 757, I'm at the gas station more than the office, handles like an 18 Wheeler. Both front/rear brakes need replacement in 20,000 miles-not covered under warranty. Needs "realignment" about every 7-8k miles (not covered under warranty). Interior: displays are small, difficult to read, green backlite awful, "mahogany" console trim so uneven you can cut yourself, bill Gates couldn't figure out electronics, nav system is a joke.


Best Features

The lease ends in August 2010


Worst Features

if the vehicle would just perform as advertised (ie, go anywhere in any terrain, handling) that would be a huge improvement(you know, like NOT getting stuck in the snow when there is a snowstorm, while the $35,000 Jeep next door is plowing through snowdrifts) If it just performed i'd overlook the rest.

Review

Great car, but I really wish it had a remote tailgate. This is a heavy car and should have a rear hatch that opens and closes via remote. Also, I've already been through 2 sets of brakes and tires. The dealership said this is normal. Ugh. A heavy car like the RR Sport really blows through the brake pads. I had them replaced less than a year ago and they are already squeaking. You can hear me braking from a mile away. Kind of embarrassing.


Best Features

Love the classy body style and seat warmers


Worst Features

Remote hatchback, better quality brake pads.

Review

I have used the vehicle to travel 3- 400 highway miles a week. I have towed 20' boat 300 miles w/o effort, pulled boat full of water from sandy beach without trouble. I have driven through sandy orange groves...the vehicle performs as advertised. I use the lowering function for easier entry for the ladies, (still too high for elderly to easily access)parking in the garage and when using drive up banking services. I currently have 54,000 miles on the vehicle, 0 problems and I have averaged 18.6 mpg.


Worst Features

a hide away step to make access easier for older passengers

2007 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Supercharged 4dr SUV 4WD (4.2L 8cyl S/C 6A)


Review

My SS sport is amazing. Ive owned it over 2 years. It handles great...all buttons are at my fingertips and the dvd/nav system works great. Nav system is not for the elders, as goes for any computer system. I have a 3 year old and 4 dogs and have no complaints. Fits my needs and this Alabama girl is not afraid to drive it in the snow or mud...hence what its made for.


Best Features

seats heat up in a second; sound system; exterior look compares to NO ONE


Worst Features

Free updates for nav device
