Perfection — When it comes to perfection in an SUV the Land Rover Discovery 3 TDV6 HSE is it. it has a 4.0 turbocharged V6 engine for GREAT performance. it has four-wheel drive for every type of environment that 4 wheel drive is needed for. it is stunningly gorgeous inside and out.

Pros: Stunningly GORGEOUS, has 4 wheel drive settings for every different type of environment.

Cons: brakes have been giving me some trouble but that is easily fixed and a nitpick.

Ample Of Space — The car is huge (at least according to European standards) nad you will have no trouble transporting almost anything. 7 seater a must. Diesel engine not the fastest around but gives adequate push for the nearly 3 ton car and the mileage is really good considering. Seating space is excellent (even in the 3rd row). And it actually can be taken off road (most plastic bits below the car will get torn off during first 100m though).

Pros: Huge, decent mileage, off road capacilities

Cons: Plastic bits "protecting" the undercarriage

2006 Land Rover Lr3 — I had to bring it to the shop since the Air shocks were frozen on elevated status. I had to drive it less than 30 miles an hour to the shop. Speed at first was a problem but by the time I drove 7k miles it was doing much better.

Pros: Air shocks, 7 full size seater, DVD, heated seats on 2nd row, comfort

Cons: Speed, Reliability

Landrovers Have A Reputation For A Reason —

The LR3 is a great car and I really want to love it a lot.... but I just cant. It's been unreliable and quirky during the 18 months I have owned it -- Leaving me broken down on multiple occasions and not counting the costs of rental cars after its refused to start, has cost me over $10k in maintenance fees. Not only is the LR3 expensive to fix... but after its back from the visit to the local LR Dealer... its great again... until it breaks down *AGAIN* :( I used to own a Lanrdrover Defender 110 Crew Cab and after 3 years of ownership and nothing except an occasional oil change I was reading the reviews of Landrover unreliability with shaking my head thinking these negative reviews were "nonsense" from disgruntled owners. Moving to USA and buying the LR3 has changed my mind. I'm now in the ranks of the officially "disgruntled owners". Not only has the car been horribly unreliable, but after driving it across the USA (CA to SC) during the course of a year and it breaking down on a near weekly basis -- and being worked on by 3 different LandRover dealers and 3 different *LR Specialist* garages -- I have read just about every review of the LR3 online and since starting to blog about the car problems, I receive emails from many other owners with similar problems. If this car worked well I would officially love it: I like the looks, its comfortable, great for road trips, roomy and powerful on road and off. Maybe its just my particular model of the LR3 that is haunted with Gremlins... but if I wasn't upside down on the car loan I would have sold it long ago Caveat Emptor. UPDATED: NOV 2013. Car broke down again with major electrical failure. Recovered to Dealer who said ECU needs replacing along with battery and possibly wiring loom. Good bye Boris the Landrover... its off to the great scrapyard in the sky.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Love the bodywork styling, comfortable ride, great for roadtrips  and one of the most comfortable cars to drive if you're over 6' tall.

Cons: quirky electrical problems, expensive maintenance from LR specialists, air suspension failed twice plus multiple starting failures
