RFLMFAO...that is too funny...almost as funny as the other day when we took ours back to Land Rover (still under warranty) stating the rear sun/moon roof stopped working...the Custom Service Statement read something like this when we picked it up: 38930 Customer states rear sunroofs are inoperable.... Customer installed Roof Rack blocking operation (electric eye for sunroof motor)… Guess they are like exotics in that way…You have to learn their quirks and how to operate/drive them to be happy with them…Land Rover once advertised that over 89% of all their vehicles ever built are still in use. In fact, Land Rover drivers sometimes refer to other makes of 4x4 as "disposables"….You also have to develop a sense of humer whith Jeremy Clarkson bashing us every week on Top Gear!!! LOL!

i just traded my POS 2006 sport supercharged in for a CL63. the rover was bought new and was great for 40k miles. AT 40k my tranny went and they wouldnt do shit. my power started cutting out on the frwy (went from 75 mph to 15 mph in the fast lane) along with so many more problems. the service guy at RR even told me to dump the thing as my problems were just beginning. first and LAST range rover for me

LOL...they are not for everyone...they have to maintained and you have to know your way around under the hood...almost all the Rover aficionados that I know keep handheld OBD's with them..LOL! We even have one friend who has an entire business just teaching new owners about them and how to drive them (Offroving.com)...It is much like the first time any of us jumped into an exotic only to be confronted with paddle shift on the column...takes a little effort but well worth it!

they look good but are terrible purchases. I do enjoy the D90/110's however. I did the same switch to the SRT8 as well Pun

Keep in mind that 95% of people who buy these cars use them as daily drivers. When a car needs 9-10 components replaced before 40k its a problem.. And in most cases the Owner/Driver has no control over the failing items.
A Paddle shifter requires a 5 minute learning curve.
