"If you're in the market for a Land Rover, don't walk..RUN AWAY! Pretty vehicles with all the bells and whistles, but they're simply not reliable at all.
The rear differential went out at 57,000 miles on our 2008 LR2...causing a horrible grinding noise every time the car turned. Try $4200 for the repair job!
The rear diff shouldn't go out on a Subaru at 57K, let alone a Jeep on steroids.
I would never buy a Land Rover/Range Rover again."
Cons: "Garage door opener, center console compartment"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I have owned and driven a lot of cars over 55 years.
I currently own a Porsche Cayenne, a BMW 760 and a BMW X3 in addition to the LR2.
I just got back from a 900 mile road trip.
This car drives great, gets great mileage is trouble free and holds its value better then any of the others mentioned above. It is the best value in its class.
I am about to trade in in for a newer one."
"I purchased my 2008 Land Rover LR2 in 2007, when they first came onto the market. I compared many similar SUVs, both luxury and standard, US and imports. I am a "bells and whistles" girl and wanted all of the latest gadgets (MP3, Bluetooth, etc.) as well as luxury features like leather and wood accents. The LR2 gave me almost everything standard, where other less expensive cars cost far more once I added everything I wanted as extras. It is great to drive - nimble, responsive and just plain fun. I actually enjoy driving to work my LR2! The only issues I have had were with the bug screen and sunroof closing properly. Other than that, usual maintenance is all I have needed. It is a great smaller SUV and performs well in sand and snow, not to mention "normal" driving conditions. I am very happy with my purchase and hope to keep it a good while longer."
