About Land Rover LR3

Although very few sport utility vehicle owners ever take their prized machines off-road, for those who do venture far from pavement it's tough to beat the 2009 Land Rover LR3. Even with its upscale status, the LR3 is known world-wide as one of the most capable off-road vehicles money can buy, although those that slog through the Amazon and across the Sahara typically don't have heated leather seats and high-end audio systems. Priced in the low $50,000 range, the LR3 borrows a host of technological advances from the larger Range Rover and packs them into a plush SUV that is both competent and affordable. A vastly improved quality and service record and improving resale values combine to make the LR3 a very competitive luxury SUV.

"This isn't my first Land Rover. I owned (and still own) an 02 Discovery II. I wanted a nice SUV for my wife that could tackle rough terrain. What I got was just that plus the smoothest, quietest vehicle I have ever driven. The air suspension is wonderful. The engine noise is so well muted that you have to turn the A/C and radio completely off just to hear the faint distant sound. Drove this back to back with an Escalade and there was no comparison at all. I just had to see what the hype is about and you quickly realize that it is just a Tahoe with some extra chrome and a front grill. Once you get past the styling gimmicks and start touching the materials in the escalade you see how GM skimped on quality by using cheap materials. The escalade was nowhere near as quiet and rode nowhere near as smoothly or controlled as the LR3. Add that with unmatched offroad ability and there is no comparison. The adjustable air suspension has an access height setting that lowers it and makes getting in and out so easy and makes loading my little girl into her car seat much easier. Turning circle is great. This LR3 actually turns shorter than a friends Honda Accord sedan. U-turns are effortless, something most other SUV's can't do without stopping and resorting to a three point turn instead. Third row seat comfort is much better than the Escalade, despite the fact that this is a smaller vehicle. The third row in the LR3 has a dip in the floor for the passengers feet so they don't have to sit with their knees in their chest like they do in the high, flat floored Escalade. Only thing I'd improve is the slow to react transmission and the fuel economy. An LR4 will be next after this based on the solid build quality and ride alone unless gas tops $4 per gallon."

"Bought as a program vehicle in 2007. I was skeptical on reading earlier reviews on the service levels, but overall, no major issues. Space in the LR3 is fantastic but gas so far has averaged 14.2 MPG. The seats are roomy (even the third row), but would have liked to have a lumbar switch in the front captains seats to make more comfortabele on long trips (The RR Sport has). For those of you that are cost conscious, this is not the vehicle for you. I replaced a wiper blade at 15,000 miles and it cost $45! With above said, I have never doubted my decision. The service provider (Knauz Land Rover) is great. They also host off-road parties a couple of times per year. A final note for those who may purchase: This vehicle will go through any cold weather situation like butter, but the vehicle (at about 5500 pounds) takes forever to stop due to the weight. This is a true mans truck and you will enjoy!"

"Previously had a range rover, traded it in for an LR3 cause insurance is incredibly cheaper for an LR3 than a range rover. It's a roomy vehicle compared to the range rover, its an excellent off-road vehicle. People complain about gas and its replacement parts, I have had much better gas mileage in the LR3 than in a crossover jeep. I have 6 kids and they all love the LR3. Interior quality is identical to the 05 range rover i had before, maybe different trim level and design but overall interior is gorgeous. The stepped roof allows people of 6 feet and above to sit comfortable, I am 6'6 and I feel relaxed. Only turnover is the door handles feel cheap and do squeak often when gripped on aggressively when in a hurry. Tires arent that good, if possible try to replace the goodyears with continentals, pirelli, or atoms. I hope you buy one because its almost like having the rolls royce of SUV's."
