2003 Land Rover Range Rover HSE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


The new Range Rover is by far the best
SUV I have owned (and there have been
many). The interior design is like a
well-done Manhattan living room with its
cherrywood (not that plastic-looking
veneer crap) and buttery leather with
contrasting piping. The 19" wheels are
stout and lend way to great handling for
a truck. One would have to be trying
extremely hard to roll this machine.
I have the same 4.4L V8 BMW powerplant
in two other cars and it is
bullet-proof, quite smooth, and
reliable. Just about everything else
save the box-design of the body is
easily recognised as BMW as well, again
speaking volumes about the expected
reliability and thoughful design.

Best Features

The car hydraulically drops several inches to let passengers in like a limousine and adjusts ride height appropriately for streets, highway, and off-roading! Great cup-holders, ventilation, oddment areas for organising, and I'm sure to love the heated steering wheel in Colorado winters!

Worst Features

Replacement of the cassette player behind the nifty power Nav/Monitor screen with an in-dash CD. Who still uses cassettes -- really?! And the 'Fast & Furious' boy-racer Honda CRX/Nissan Altima tuner taillights.
