bought one because:

No other SUV has the style, feel and manners of a Land Rover. It simply fits. If Land Rover could improve the fuel economy and reliabilty, they would have no competition on Earth.

Pros

Land Rover is a great car and the dealerships are generally of the philosophy that customers' needs are first in line.

Cons

Suspension system is tiresome since it's often in the shop for that particular reason.

The Queen's Fleet -- Land Rovers — The thing one should know when buying an extended service agreement is that until the manufacturer's agreement is nearly over -- then THAT is the time to purchase the agreement. Purchasing it when you buy the car is senseless. You already get the dealer and manufacturer's warranty. So be careful: That is a huge trick to get the buyer to think he/she is getting more time when, in fact, you would be getting a lot less. Nevertheless, on a LR, you should eventually buy an agreement because suspension is an issue and it is an extremely costly one. LR is a wonderful "truck" because even thought it's called an SUV, it's on a truck chassis. It looks boxy but once you get accustomed to it, you'll see it for what it is: safe and comfortable with great storage ability. Gas mileage is not good but that isn't what you are looking for if you are buying a LR anyway. Right? The service departments of 6 different locations we've used have always had excellent people working there and the dealership personnel attempt to make the customer comfortable with an upscale waiting room with food and comfy seating. (They must feel like they are generally working with a richer person so they attempt to target their service and waiting areas around that notion. It's probably true.) As for safety, I don't think one could buy a safer car other than a Hummer. If you can afford it, then you may be one of the lucky ones to purchase a LR-2 or 3.

Pros

The cargo space versatility is great, and the 3rd row seats fold right out of the floor if you need seating for 6 or 7 passengers.  From a driver's perspective, I really like the upright seat position, and the responsive steering.  

Cons

Expensive to fix so make sure to have warranty coverage, and mpg is average, but comparable to most other SUVs that will compete in it's class.

Land Rover Lr3 (2006 Model) — The vehicle has luxury status, and is a great 4x4 machine. Comfortable 3rd-row seating is difficult to find, especially with seating that can stow in the cargo area. Driving this vehicle has always provided a safe and reliable ride in all weather conditions.

Ok Suv — Gas mileage is so bad, tank full of gas gives around 225 miles which cost around $70. Its a heavy duty SUV but i'm not buying anymore of this. If you don't mind paying for gas, it is ok then. I have this SUV for almost 9 years and its ok vehicle.

Its a Landrover, no more words need writing !

The Best 4 X 4 X Far — Best vehicle up to now I have ever owned, bring on Discovery 4 !, preformance enhanced with a chip makes it the best alround vehicle, build quality is what you come to expect from Landrover. Stunning looks, anybody thinks it looks like a taxi see me afterwards, cost does not matter "its a Landrover", and its just FUN FUN FUN. As James May said on "Top Gear" about a tingle sensation (Yepp)

Great offroad and fulltime use vehicle

Cons

boxy masculine outlook

Perfect Luxury Suv For Terrain, Snow, Dirt, And A Full Time Vehicle. — the acceleration on the 06 LR3 can be slow in the comfort mode but if u really want a quick head start at the red light u can shift it into the sport mode and it'll race the rpm to increase the acceleration speed. the overall quality on the car is beautiful. the craftsmanship and quality can be told to be a true luxury suv. the quality is no different than the range rover sport 06 besides the design and performance. the seven seat passenger seats are very comfortable and the third row seats provide a leg room slip in for 2 full sized adult seats. the exterior styling can be quite boxy but for a guy its a great masculine look. the offroad features and air suspension offer a lot. this car does guzzle up gas. i get about 12 mpg local/highway. i put premium gas into my baby so maintenance can be quite high. the car is a very heavy vehicle making it very sturdy. overall i definitely recommend this SUV over the mercedes ML and volvo XC90.

the best family 7 seater car availabe

Cons

spare parts are expensive

Worth Every Penny — acceleration is excelent but the breaking, just like and other land rover model is still quiet week.. also the rear end of the car needs to have a better look rather than the clear cut trunk. also spare parts are quiet expensive so do not buy this car without a 5 year waranty
