- I was like a little kid when I bought it.
- TOO MANY THINGS TO MENTION!!!!!!!
People, like me are attracted to the styling of this beautiful looking SUV. When originally purchased my supercharged Range Rover Sport, I was static and couldn't stop telling people how wonderful this car was. I thought it was the most reliable SUV in the planet.
Then when my Range Rover hit 13000 miles and 10 months into me owning my 2007 Range Rover, I'd started to experience what is called one of the most unreliable cars in the planet. The ECU when out and they had to order one which the dealer had my car for 3 weeks. Then they had to replace the power stearing, fix problems with shocks, radio had minor problems, the trim on the driver side door, etc.
How can such a beautiful looking car be so bad? Maybe that's the reason why sales are down for the Land Rover. And sales wiil go down even more now that it has been sold to an indian company....read morehide

- Very aggressive styling
- Engine,transmission, electronics,power seats, electronics
I had owned all kinds of brands in the past, but never had as many issues as I do with my new Range Rover Sport. I bought the car 9 months ago and I have already had problems with the engine, power seats(twice) electric system and now my transmission.
I don't know what made me buy this car after reading all the bad publicity the brand gets. All different sources gives this Land Rover really bad ratings and now I have to agree with them. STAY AWAY FROM LAND ROVER....read morehide

- Electronics, engine and air suspenssion.
I wish I had my BMW X5, this has been a nightmare for me and my wife. I had nothing but problems with my suv, from the glove compartment door. To having the engine worked three times. I have more and more problems each day.
Driver side window wont open, I keep having problems with door locks, air supenssion works most of the time, but I had to take it to the dealer several times to get it fixed. I love the styling but I hate being best of friends with my local dealership and having them work on my car all of the time.
I'm selling this car....read morehide

- Very nice car
I'm so mad with the purchase of this car. Looks beautiful, but once you look at the fit and finished, you can tell that they have cut corners. Land Rover have been using cheap parts in order to make profit here. 18K that I have own this car, I had nothing but problems. From brakes, suspension, tires, windshield, treansmission, and they had to replace some module three times. I wanted to sell it or mabe trade the car for an other, but they don't hold resale value at all like the Germans or Japanese do.
Just yesterday I had my second issue with my transmission again @18,478 miles.
Stay away from this Brand and don't make the same mistake I made.
I was told by people to stay away from this brand and didn't want to listen. I wish I have listent to them......read morehide

- Looks great, one of the best looking SUV's
- Repairs, very unreliable, way too many mechanical problems
I took the car in at 500 miles because I had problems with the ABS. At 2300 miles I had problems with the suspension and again at 4000 miles. The AC stop working all of the sudden. I had engine rpoblems at 12000 and that's when I traded the car for a new ML550. I have 14800 miles with "ZERO" problems....read morehide

- Great features (interion and exterior), Best looking SUV in the market, All terrain at its best
- poor dealership experience
My last 3 cars have been BMW's and I was dissapointed by the X5. Drove the Porsche GTS, Mercedes ML and was not nearly as impressed as the Range Rover Sport Supercharged.

- Styling, Range Rover name, comfort, features. Full air suspension
- off line acceleration, pricey
Best SUV Land Rover ever built. My last Land Rover was an LR3 and its like night and day compared to that. The handeling and ride is like nothing else. The suspension will adjust as you lean into a turn. very tight. I upgraded to the luxury package. No other car manufacterer has softer leather than LR/Jaguar. You pay a little more but its worth it. This car is quick for a 5600lb car. I have the 4.4/ At speeds over 40 when you hit it , the thing moves. The supercharged version is even better. Gas mileage is better than I thought. I can get 20 mpg running on plus. Not bad at all. If you buy or lease one, you won't regret it...read morehide

- Craftmanship,reliability,value for money, technology, handling
- Average of 16 miles per gallon. Few Range rover dealers.
This is the best handling SUV i've driven. I've had an MDX, X5 and Sequioa and nothing compares to comfort and handling with the RRS SC. Power will blow even a sports car. I drove 500 miles back home when I got from the dealer and it was very responsive especially in Hilly country. I am very happy to have choosen this SUV. Of course, the price tag is $72T and allitle bit steep. But you cannot find a better AWD SUV out there. You can get a wannabee SUV who thinks you can put to the paces of off-roading but this one is made for camping, offroading, fishing and you dont have to worry. If you're planning on retiring and going on lots of driving, this will be the best SUV for you. Never worry about mud, snow or rocks. In fact, I believe its too pretty to do those things, but it would be a waste if it will be just parked in your garage to bring you to the mall and do some grocery. Thats what celebrities are doing. Poor Range Rover....read morehide

- speed and handling in a suv format. amazing
- ride is tough jarring
this is a beautiful car. I have always had a SUV and a sports car or somehing high performance.
this gives me both. with more than just "all wheel drive" you can really get where you need to go in lousy weather. We live in a ski town and sometimes the roads are aweful this does the job
But on dry roads, this machine is a screamer! Fast, amazing handling and solid on the road. No body roll.
I followed one before I bought one and was driving my A6- S-line. We were going thru the curves at about 120 and the Rover had little if no body roll and was testing my Audi. Had to have one then
I love this car...read morehide
