The Only Luxury CAR worth Buying. Period. by Billy G. on Palm Beach, Florida on 10/26/2011. Trim: 2011 Land Rover Range Rover HSE, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Well, I maybe biased. I'm someone who "lusted" over the Range since the 2004 redesign.... I believe now as I have for years that the Range Rover is the quintessential Luxury SUV... Now that I own 1, I believe more then ever, Driving it feels as if you r the most important person in the world, Seats act & feel like "Thrones", literally, Ride is quiet, power is abundant... 0-60 in 6.7, and 5,697 pounds! Transmission: smooth & imperceptible, Sound: Logic7 Harmon Kardon, fantastic! Not even going to begin to touch on the fact that even though the Range really just looks like a Large, well painted Luxury SUV, I've owned 30 cars, this one is the best looking Large SUV, because everyone LOVES IT!
Cons: 1. The Most Obvious: Gas Mileage, however very honestly, if you are buying an 80 some odd thousand Dollar Car...you absolutely should be able to afford to put gas in it! I do get about 13 in the City, and 18 on the Highway...(by the way: this is compared to my last car...Range Rover Sport HSE Luxury: 8/13!!) 2. Only other con: minor "Range Rover Glitches"... ie; "open hood" indicator, but it is closed. Irrelevant, frankly. Worth it to drive a Fantastic, Desirable, Solid, Luxurious & Well made Luxury SUV on the Planet! It is all covered by Land Rover Warranty & it gives me an excuse to look @ New Range Rover's in Showroom, things could be worse, Go buy the Range, it will not be disappointing!
Overall review: As you see I do not have enough good things to say about the Range Rover, I will exclaim one importance, should you desire to buy one, if you can, purchase at least the 2010 and newer, the purchase of the Company by the Oil and Middle Eastern Financial Giant, TATA had made the newer vehicles Engine and Power train an absolute Marvel of technology (the new HSE is faster smoother and quieter then the older Supercharged) and most important the Quality is far greater, of course there is also lots more in the department of features and luxury! Other then that, Go now, I have owned over 30 cars and I am 31 years old, everything from Lexus to Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Jaguar, and then back again, There is nothing like The Range, Nothing, nada, zip, zilch!, Good Luck and I hope this helps!
