2005 Land Rover Range Rover User Reviews
- Comfortable, safe, powerful - best vehicle on the market under $100k
I get a new car every 6-12 months and usually try a new make/model for fun, but after owning an 03 RR I checked others, from Mercedes SUVs, Hummers (which I owned before), Aston Martons - but none compared in overall luxery, convenience, safety, power, class, attractiveness to my 03 RR - so now I have an 05. Neither 03 or 05 has had any problems - just take them for regular servicing and that's it!...read morehide

- Great look, Nice interior
- Brakes aren't as smooth as expected
The Price of the Range Rover is almost the same as the Mercedes S-Class or the BMW 7 Series but you don't get the same features. For example the Merc and the BMWs have the "Touch" feature for the doors, where the doors would open just by touching them when the key is in your pocket. Also the Merc has the "Keyless Go" option. Overall many people might find these to be useless options which they won't even consider important, they are lucky. A nice thing in the interior is the Touch screen, very easy to use and gives a great look. I guess because I live in a country where petrol prices are cheap, I don't consider the MPG (Miles per Galon) to be an issue....read morehide

- looks good,
- cheap wheels, electrical probs, gps hard to use
spent more time in shop and ended up driving rental car (not even loaner car) more than the rover... symes dealership is too cheap and always have to pay for the upgrade... every part of the car is breaking down... would not recommend buying it...

- Sleek, handles well, engine well powered.
- Performance design flaws remain. Trouble with air suspension.
While riding at 30 mph, the air suspension suddenly became inactive and the car dropped down to the bumper which was rather alarming. Lousy service to car price ratio (Land Rover Dallas and Land Rover Frisco). Land Rover loaner cars are virtually non-existent. Will never purchase another!

- Very attractive and comfortable interior. Feels safe and sturdy.
- Old body style was more attractive. Still quirky. The air suspension dropped out at 10,000 miles.
The motto for this vehicle should be: "We strive for progress, not perfection". I have always owned Range Rovers and have never made it 12 consecutive months without having to visit the dealer at least three times (four times if you include scheduled maintenance). This is my third Range Rover. I will be trading it in this week because of problems with the air suspension (only 10,000 miles on the car!). The Land Rover service centers in the Dallas/Fort Worth area are horrible. The service people are at times rude and frankly not apologetic for the many persistent technical problems with this car. They feel no obligation to provide Land Rover loaner cars while one waits for completion of repairs. They currently have me in a Dodge Stratus loaner-ugh! If you need consistently reliable transportation, Range Rover is not the vehicle for you. Although the car is very attractive and comfortable to drive, it should never be more than a a secondary vehicle....read morehide

- Best interior on the market, roomy interior, great on-road ride and off-road capabilities
- Gas mileage could be better, expensive (but worth every cent)
I've just traded in my 2002 Escalade for a 2005 Range Rover. Prior to the Escalade, I had a 1999 Navigator. This Range Rover is by far the best luxury SUV I've ever had. The Escalade clearly has more power, but the quality of the Range Rover is so superior the power differential seems irrelevant. The interior is incredible - parchment/navy with cherry wood, which is real!!!! Highly recommend this SUV for those who prefer a unique car....read morehide

- a solid vehicle...very comfortable and capable off road... and yet does very well in town also.
- have had to have a few bugs worked out of the electronics, but the dealer was on top of things an th
This is my third land rover, and by far its the best. I had also owned a free lander and a disco...both were great vehicles, but after driving the Range rover...they just kind of fell flat. I really love the look and the feel of my rover. I have taken it to two off road events and found it to be VERY capable off road. I'm very pleased with the vehicle so far, and would definatly recommend....read morehide

- Beautiful vehicle, sleek interior and exterior, amazing ride
- expensive, car phone not exactly user friendly
I love my 2005 Range Rover! This is the first year they have offered a speaker phone in the vehicle. I had been hoping for that and chose it right away. I had to sign up with Cingular to get the proper phone for the designated cradle in the vehicle. The phone has blown 2 sim cards in 1 week! If I could change anything, I would change the phone set up....Otherwise, as usual, I love my Range Rover! I have owned Range Rovers for years and I am very satisfied!! I feel extremely safe driving in my Range Rover. People stop, point and stare. I chose the black exterior color with a tan interior. I have chromed out the letters, grill and fins. I upgraded the tires to 22'' with chrome rims. BEAUTIFUL!...read morehide
