Rodeo Drive meets the Rubicon
By DaTB on


2005 Land Rover Range Rover HSE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


We traded in our 2001 Range Rover for a newer model & we found that certified pre-owned is THEE way to go: you have the vehicle's service history to see if it's a lemon, & we got roughly $35k off the original sticker price. HUGE comfotable seats, both front and back. The height of the driving position is captivating because you feel so in control of not only the vehicle, but all those around you as well. Integration of center console with the dash and the rest of the vehicle is beautiful. Super torquey engine that pins you to your seat but struggles at higher RPMs to haul this monster. This truck rides with more refinement than our previous '02 745i! Storage is ENORMOUS! Highly recommended!

Best Features

Best duality of beauty and masculinity on the market; Seat comfort that trumps our 745i; Amazingly torquey engine that pins you to the ridiculously comfortable seats; superior ergonomics that blend artistry with function; driving position makes you feel as if you're on an Urban Safari; poweful vents

Worst Features

No individual CD player; no automatic lift-gate at this price, the steering wheel heater functions towards lukewarm at best, the A/C is way too aggressive and difficult to coax into a perfect temperature; the sport mode is merely a suggestion; no automatic liftgate. Hope it's dependable!
