Outstanding Suv — I purchased a 2005 Range Rover HSE, a $74,123 cost new by the previous owner, for $25,000 with only 44,000 miles in July 2010. It did not have one scratch and was in perfect condition inside and out. I used the VIN # to research past service work from the Land Rover dealership and found it never had any prior negative service problems. Since the RR HSE body design has not changed in almost 10 years, I purchased online and installed after market RR front and side grills which really added to it's looks. I also purchased a 45,000 mile, 3 year bumper to bumper extended warranty for $2,900. This is the best value for the money anyone who appreciates owning a luxury SUV could ever asked for. For example, my son paid $84,000 for his new 2006 RR HSE, drove it almost 80,000 miles and only got $23,000 on trade in. I think anyone who is able to buy a used $74,000 luxury SUV of any make with only 44,000 miles is certainly getting a high value vehicle for their money. Although the gas mileage only averages around 15 mpg around town, on a 200 mile trip from San Antonio to Houston, with speed control set exactly on 70 mph, my onboard computer showed I averaged 20.1 mpg. I am very happy with my RR and found it to be the best SUV I have ever owned, especially for the investment.

Pros

I really love Rovers.  I have had a few and enjoy them.  They are a love/hate thing though.  The air suspension on the Range is amazing.  It adds a whole new dimension to driving.  Heated steering wheel and back seats are nice to have in the winter.  It gets compliments whenever I drive it.

Cons

They're overly complicated vehicles and things are bound to go wrong.  When it goes wrong it's really expensive to get fixed

Excellent Ride Quality — My Range Rover has an excellent ride and looks. I get tons of compliments every time I drive it. Range Rover has nailed the modern classic design and you can always tell another Range coming down the road with the distinctive grill and headlights. There are a few quirks with these cars but the motor is a BMW motor, and parts are readily available. Expensive to get fixed unless you are handy with a wrench. I try to do as much of the work as I can, and let the Rover dealer pick up my slack.

Timbeeeerrrrrr.... — OK, so I got this Range Rover HSE about 2 years old because I knew it was covered under warrenty for 3 years and was only planning on using it for a winter... and I will say it was great in the bad weather... and it was cool when stuck in traffic that you could use the hydrolics to put your car up a little more so you could see down the street... and for an SUV, I think it is one of the nicer looking vehicles on the road - especially the inside... but all of that gets washed away when you start to look at the expense of upkeep when out of warrenty, the fuel costs and most importantly, the feeling that it was always so close to tipping over... Out of all the SUV's I've owned, this had the worst feel to it... even when not going around a sharp turn, there was just always the feel that if you went just 1 MPH faster, you'd find yourself upside down...

SOLID, STATUS VHEICLE, OPENS GATES (HAHA)...

Cons

$$$$$$$$$$$$$ TO OWN AND MAINTAIN

My Range Rover - Ultimate Jeep — For a big vehicle, the range rover has terriffic performance, the model i own can also function in sport mode and once you step on it the whole v8 engine takes off. The noise levels are very low, once you are inside the car you seem totally immune to what is happenning outside the cabin. The sound system is fantastic and seems like a studio,it has a harman kardon system that is just COOL! Its quite expensive to own but once you have it, the envy from passers by makes up for that......In my country, Nigeria, there is a shortage of qualified mechanics that specialise in range rovers and that makes it relatively expensive to maintain, i have even had to order an electronic component from the UK once. Having owned a 2006 toyota 4runner, 2002 Nissan pathfinder, 2006 toyota landcruiser and still own a 2008 ford escape.......the range rover is a whole new experience in Jeep ownership....Its a perfect blend of luxury and ruggeddness.....When driving the car you feel like passing through anything and the ride still manages to remain smooth......AMAZING!

Addicting Thing... — If you can affoard it, this is an un-forgettable experience... Acceleration, handling are second to none. Riding through traffic is easy and makes commuting more fun. Powerful brakes. The Audio system is the best I have heard, so far. Navigation is easy to use and equipment is high quality. Premium material are used inside and out. Well designed thick leather seats. Maintenance is more expensive than most SUVs, but worth the trouble considering how much more performance and confort you get.

Awesome. — This high-end luxury vehicle is extremely stylish and fun to drive. The four-wheel-drive ability of this SUV is phenomenal. The Range Rover handles anything that you throw at it whether you are on the highway or off-road it performs well above the rest.

I Dont Have It On Me At The Moment — I like how it looks in side and out side, very classic, safe car in case of accidents, comfortable to drive. but I don't like that everything is expensive for that car. and very sensitive car too. Always need to pay attention to it & taking care of it more often compare to other cars.
