2008 Land Rover Range Rover
There are 4 user reviews for the HSE trim shown below
- Interior is beyond amazing. Safe, heavy, solid. Classic British styling. Comfortable & easy 2 drive
- MPG not great. Not super fast, odd/erratic electrical/software surprises
Purchased As New
I've only had my car for about a week now, and I think it is really amazing. It feels so solid and safe. It really feels like I am driving an armored tank. The interior design and materials are probably the best I have ever seen or had (and I've had over 15 MBZ and BMW cars). The interior is just so posh, classic and beautiful.
Acceleration is decent, but not as good as say an ML or X5...but not bad. You feel the weight and size of this Rover at all times, but it also adds to the safety and security of the car.
2008 is (according to most RR dealers) the least trouble free Rover ever made. I had a 2006 model, and it was a nightmare from day 1 of ownership, yes...Day 1. I'm hoping my 2008 will be better.
Cons of the car are a really bad backup camera (just like the infamous BMW backup camera, same supplier). Also, sometimes the auto up & down steering wheel stays in the up position, and if you brake too hard or hit a bump...the factory satellite radio loses signal. ODD, but not a major big deal. Every make of car has quirks!
If you want a heavy, safe and classically beautiful car, I think the Range Rover is a good fit....read morehide

- The ultimate in luxury inside/out, awesome off-road capability
This vehicle is like taking the very best features of an S-class Mercedes, a military Hummer, and combining the two. As luxurious as it gets while unparalled off-road performance. Some complain about the size; this vehicle wasn't designed to haul rug rats....if you want a 3rd row buy an LR-3, or better yet, a Mini-Van. And gas mileage? On the highway I'm getting 20+ mpg, so if your concern is MPG, then you probably can't afford the vehicle to start with....read morehide

- GPS comes standard, easy to handle, not rough like a lot of your SUV's now.
- Not very big, but I guess you could say roomy enough for comfort and Gas milage could be better!
I bought this car to replace my Excalade, I liked my old SUV It was an AWESOME SUV. Just seemed to big for my needs, I have 2 young daughters and I over guessed on the room we really need. Something I sold It for something a tad smaller, also the Excalade for all the room It had HORRIBLE comfort! This GPS Is easy to use, comfortable to drive, doesn't get the worse gas milage for an SUV, the price Is up there. But If your looking at It I imagine you can afford It. The only problem Is, I think the trunks bigger than the seating area. When I first seen this I said huge trunk, (hard to find now with SUV's :() I'm taking It! Overall It looks 5x smaller than It appears In the photo's and everything.
Just when you think you have the perfect vechile something knocks you off that stand. Seating area's small, could have better gas milage, It was seems to take awhile to warm up. As In I feel like I'm driving a dully. Seat 4mins just to drive off, because the engine doesnt seem to juice up right away. I guess I'm being harsh because I miss my Excalade. But were sadly trading this In for a Lexus 570. My friend has one and Its what were looking for. Very comfortable and good for off-roading. Which Is bound to happen! Not bad though, just to extended In what It has to make the price look smaller than It really Is....read morehide
