"Bought RRS HSE in May '06. LOVE it! Awesome Rear DVD, Nice Nav, Opt of the luxury pkg, not fast as an auto but better with the M/S. By far the best looking SUV in its class...Service is nice w/minimal repairs...Every day I drive the car I realize why would I want to ever trade it in when the car delivers so well! Over $60k is high but you get a lot for your money folks"
Pros: "Nice car to drive. Very comfortable on long trips"
Cons: "Poor quality, many defects"

"Nice car to drive. My wife likes all the "bells and whistles", but a very poor quality vehicle. 10 trips back to the dealer for warranty work, sometimes for the same problem. Now off warranty, continue to have problems, but now at my expense. Land Rover America recommended an extended warranty. Have owned and driven cars for over 40 years, never had an ext warranty before, never needed one. I would expect a lot better performance and support from an expensive, high-end vehicle."
"looks good on the outside, it is more of a status symbol and not a performance or dependability type vehicle. The automatic height sensors went out at 41000 miles without any warning. Thankfully, it was still on warranty otherwise, I would of payed $2000 . This vehicle can be fun but the interior seems to be bulky, cumbersome and is more size than substance. I believe there are beter vehiclesof this nature out there like the 2012-13 Ford explore with equal or better bells and whistles. Ohh and better gas milage without having to feed it premium fuel.
good luck to those seeking this vehicle."
"I've owned many SUVs over the last 20 years and the Range Rover Sport Supercharged is my second one and I can't think of any SUV I would rather have even with "money no object". Simply the best looking and best performing vehicle available today!"
"Bought the car a month ago. First day out of the shop it went in for service. Apparently the water pump on the supercharger had issues. Was told it may have been a result of the car sitting on the lot for a couple of months. Love the way the car drives (speed, handling, etc... all great). Not crazy about the gas mileage. I look forward to trying its off road capabilities out soon."
"love the supercharged range rover sport ever since a pic of it on the web site. went down the next day and purchased it. it is black inside and out with red markings and brakes that peep through the black rims that been had put on with 22" tires. the windows are completely blacked out. And get this - it has a remote start put on this bad boy. The dealership said it couldn't b done, but it was easy. as far as that goes this range rover SC Sport is the only LR RR SC Sport with a remote start !!!!! this car is so awesome, great remarks made about the car almost everyday about how good it looks. and the supercharged engine !!!!! it is the best, wouldn't have anything but that engine. Highly recommend this car to anyone who enjoys driving luxury vehicles even though its just like a sports car. just be careful and watch your speed."
"Not one of the best buys out there. Handling is average for this price of a car. Performance is nice w/ the supercharger. Braking doesn't compare to vehicles in this price class. Overall an overpriced SUV that only sells because of the status. Buy German-better deal, better SUV"
Pros: "solid, good looking inside and out, performance"
Cons: "Storage space could be better"

"Had the car for about 3,000 miles and have done about 70% highway, 30% city. My MPG is about 19.3 average, not nearly as bad as I had expected. (You can certainly run it much harder and get much worse)
So far I've had nothing but compliments. The interior is very well done, as is the outside. Ride quality and noise level is really good.
I'm 6'1" and have no problems with a tall person behind me in the 2nd row seats - plenty of space.
I came our of a 2011 ML350 and the Range Rover is much nicer and ride quality is 10x better"
Pros: "Power, comfort, handling my new bmw doesnt have"
Cons: "Price, i still dont think cars should be that much"

"Love the car and have put a ton of miles compared to other people. Its had is little hiccups but like any car buy a good warranty. Mine is to 125,000 so im still gunning it and race the 22 yrs and cream the in the modified pices you know."
Pros: "great looking, love to drive it and proud to own"
Cons: "could be a bit less harsh on potholes"

"First RR after two X5's. Loved the less tech environment, "regular" gear select, normally aspired V8... Was concerned with reliability but only one minor problem and fixed by the dealer first time. Beautiful interior, the HSE Luxury package was worth it. Great to drive with excellent power. Took on a cross country trip, cruised along the highways and seats were amazingly comfortable for the entire trip. A bit harsh over NYC potholes and a bit more rattle than I expected but love it."
"Cold weather package comes with a heated front windshield. At night it is very difficult to see do to the tiny sting like lines in the front windshield. Any light at night makes the windshield look like running ants across the windshiled. It amplifies light and makes the light sparkle."
"Have only had mine for 1 month and so far so good. I got mine certified, so I'm not too worried about the maintenance for the next 4 years. However, my SC gets terrible MPG, even when I try to drive "conservatively." As far as the "fun" factor and general quality, the car seems to be great. A little less refined than my old ML500, but I'm hoping the lack of refinement will more than make up for the off road capabilty."
