"Seems like the car has had more than it's share of problems. Expensive to repair. Key fob is entirely too expensive and it should last the life of the car (or have rechargeable or replaceable batteries)!"
Pros: "Driving position - comfortable and in control."
Cons: "Key fob insertion + button press start up process"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9
"Currently at 55K. Completely reliable to date. Excellent brakes. Steering sensitive at highway speed. Nice firm but compliant ride - solid quality feel - I once purchased a used Subaru over a new Honda based on feel. Adequate power. Fits the bill of a small luxury SUV. Mileage is acceptable but not great. Feels like a smaller version of an XC90 - similar motor, safety systems and switches / controls. Well appointed - garage door opener would have been nice."
"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"

"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."
