These types are only good for one thing and that's leasing. Make sure to get out of this vehicle by the time the warranty is up. The engine works well but all of the peripherals along with electronics are suspect. Also the air suspension will fail around 80K miles. The dealer freely admits to this. Each corner is $1500 to repair. So you'll end up spending about $6,000 on all for corners at some point. Then you will most likely get the dreaded steering column lockout. This is actually a safety feature that eventually craps out. Replacing this unit with a new one is $6,000. If you're smart you can get a salvage unit for around $1200 and then spend another $500-700 on installation or try doing it yourself. Of course that's if you get one that works to begin with. The car's electronics are also very temperature dependent. Here in Chicago it suffers from many cold related ailments. The rear trunk section will get loose and will need to be rebuilt at some point before 100K miles.

You'll love it, & probably buy it, for the obvious reasons; style, class, comfort, luxury, utility, & the jealousy factor. But, in specific the leather, info touch screen, Harmon-Kardon stereo, & all options of the luxury interior package (an absolute must). You will grow to love the driveability, ride, & handling. If you have the guts to try it, being so expensive, the off road capability of the Range Rover is amazing. I sell ranches in Texas. I can sell properties that others can't in my Rover. Turn the suspension nob & lift the Rover 3 inches. It will now traverse the most challenging terrain with ease, & without feeling like it. It's the love child of a Jeep & a Mercedes sedan. You will HATE the repair bills! In 4 years or so, both front airbags failed (although, I love the feature) rendering it undriveable, a door handle broke, sun roof jammed, & the nav map stopped working (I just ejected the disc!). I suggest finding a expert Land Rover guy near you (NOT THE DEALER!). The dealer wanted $3k for each airbag, $1k for the door, $1k for Sun roof, & $500 for the nav map, that's $8,500! It still cost me $3k with my non-dealer guy. The 255 55 R19 tires are very expensive & the selection sucks. Also, it has the most expensive battery I've ever seen. Overall, the 2006 Range Rover HSE is an awesome vehicle. Just remember, if you buy one be prepared to drop $5k for repairs at anytime.

Great Ride

You read either glowing remarks or the worst. We were one of the lucky ones to get one of the best cars we have ever owned. My wife had owned every luxury car on the road, and the Range Rover has been one of her favorites. Car was originally returned under California 'Lemon Laws' for a continuing computer error the dealer couldn't solve. Land Rover took it back, fixed the problems (whatever that was) and we ended up with it. Now, with nearly 80K miles, it still drives and rides wonderfully. Very comfortable. We are looking into getting our next Range Rover.

The car is BEAUTIFUL!! I can't believe its mine for only 30k. I just stare it at sometimes. Neighbors think I am noveau riche. People everywhere look at you different when you step out of a Rover. Apart from a new Jag or Rolls Royce there is no other feeling of pride & prestige. Yes, it does have a few reliability issues but my friends who have 2009 and newer have 0 problems but paid 75k. The pros outweigh the cons. If you are thinking about buying 1, do it!! You live only once. Just don't take it as daily commuter and the drive-thru. Use it on weekends on special occassions

This Rover fills all my needs, and does it very charmingly. I ski, and its a champ on the mountain. I haul kids and gear, and it delivers with grace. I tow my boat, and it pulls with ease. I take dirt roads, and it loves it. I go from point A to point B, and this Rover takes me there in style and comfort! However, in return it expects handsome spending habits from its owner. Fair enough.

We had 2 previous RRs (2003 & 2005)and we had issues with both. This SUV is the most reliable we ever owned and we owned BMWs, Lexus and MBs. The new Jaguar engineers seemed to have addressed the reliability issues we had with our previous RRs. This SUV has been reliable and flawless. We kept up with the main. schedule and we have nothing but praise for this suv. Reading other reviews make you wonder about where some of these owners purchased their cars from? I can't relate to one thing written on some of these reviews even with the 2003 & 2005 we owned. The luxury, comfort and reliability of this suv is unmatched and we elected to hang on to this SUV and won't even dream about trading it in.

I have about 53,000 miles and it's exactly 4 years in just a few weeks. We also owned a 2006 LS430 Lexus during the same period. Our RR outperformed the Lexus in reliability & comfort. We no longer needed 2 vehicles and we dumped the Ls 430 without a second thought. Kept up with the maint. and the car is running great. My only issue is the early wear and tear on the seats. You can thank our environmental wackos for that as the process for finishing(dyeing) the leather is not what it used to be because of some crazy environmental hazards. The new finishing process causes early wear and tear issues as explained by a number of upholsterers. We are enjoying every mile we drive this awesome vehicle.

Have always liked the styling, but never wanted to buy the 90's RRs for fear of build quality. Got a good deal and needed a winter vehicle. Had a LandCruiser previously and the RR gets much better gas mileage; more comfortable ride as well. Really enjoy the unique styling. I have only had normal maintenance so far, brakes, rear bushing, oil, winter tires, etc. The dealership is a little pricy, but not much more than Toyota. I put snow/all seasons on this winter and it performed flawlessly. I have owned 2 e320's, an XJR, a landcruiser, an acura CLS, a grand cherokee, and a cts-v. The interior build quality is the best I have ever seen or owned. And this is coming from a car guy.

I bought what I expected to be a quality car, it is not! Wonder why the company has changed ownership 3 times??? They can't fix their cars, and won't hire good mechanics, or service people. The car started to have electrical problems, blackouts, being stranded, suspension, and under warranty were supposedly fixed, but thye continued! and I've been stuck with innumerable bills.Dealer says things happen... Their service department is horrible, and the interior quality competes with kia, maybe! VERY EXPENSIVE to maintain, and getting parts is a pain.

Bought this car, expecting "royalty's car", The exterior and the interior are beautiful, but once it has a few thousand miles, problems start to happen, as if the car is 15 years old. Problems with stability, breaks, powertrain, and the interior which seemed well done, is not, the color fades, it looks old. I would not recomend this car to anyone, for the price a BMW, infinity or lexus are 100% better

This is my 3rd Land Rover. I owned the Discovery I, a 2000 Range and now this. I love them all. They never cease to amaze me. You feel like a King in this thing. On road it handles like a sedan, off road (yes I use it for what it was made for) you can go anywhere. The Range Rover design has always been classic. No over abundance of plastic looking parts like the Asian SUV's. No crazy body lines to take away from the Land Rover look. Just pure and simple. The new Jag engine is plenty fast. The 6 speed trans helps out. Especially compared to my 2000 4.6 Range. Reliability issues, yea it has some but who cares. They are worth it to drive this car. Did I say you feel like a KING in this SUV?

I have owned many cars, but this is the best. I bought it used and just bought a new 2010 that arrives in 2 weeks. This car on the highway is nothing short of amazing. A gulfstream Jet on wheels. After a long drive I am not the least bit tired the seats are outstanding. Timeless design. I know 4 others who own a RR and all plan on purchasing again, I think the 2010 is likely the next level, I will report back

I am very happy with this vehicle and surprised with the mpg -- I have been averaging about 17.5 MPG. Not sure how those getting under 10 are driving... Like any lux car it will need to be maintained but so far after 16 months the car has been very solid. So many opinions expressed about poor reliability that I want to express the opposite. Interior comfort is very high with comfort seats. Ride on the highway is solid and extremely comfortable on long trips. It is a truck so it doesnt corner like my old BMW but this car will go anywhere. Plus the truck is great to look at. Highly recommended!

I normally do not like to complain, but someone has to help you from making this mistake! Bought it with 22k miles, immediatiely ran into elecectrical issues that caused the rover to "blackout" completely while driving- No power at all. Dealer can not find or fix the issue ( Has happened twice) Then at 72,000 miles, then engine blew up without any warning lights!!! a $10,000 dollar repair!!! All repairs cost a fortune!! Wipers were $300 dollars! If you have more money than scents, buy this vehicle!! If you like to be stranded on the side of the road, late at night with tractor trailers wizzing by at 75 miles per hour while you wait 2-3 hrs for Rover service to arrive, buy it! L-E-M-O-N

This vehicle is a typical German engineered product. It is luxurious and safe with nice additives but other than that, there is nothing special. The car is pretty much leech on your time and bank account. When you purchase German this is what you get, if you want quality go buy Honda or Toyota. However there is no accuse for the lack of assistance with with making things right. If you purchase this vehicle make sure to have a lawyer because more then likely you will be contacting him with this matter.

There is no doubt that the Range Rover (RR) is the best looking SUV, but it is far from the best SUV. In fact, it just may be the worst. When you hear the rumors about the high level of frequency that the RR needs maintenance, believe them. One of the most frustrating attributes of ownership is having an $80,000+ vehicle needing to go in for service every 3 or 4 months. Not only that, but the service department at the dealerships are expecting the maintenance. There are no apologies or concessions offered. I feel that the time spent and the frustration used while owning this vehicle is highly unwarranted.

I love my supercharged RR. It's silver over ivory with piano black trim, very sexy combination. The ivory leather requires constant attention but looks great. It's very nice leather btw. Off the line acceleration is rather gradual, but once it's rolling, it pulls very strong. I am averaging about 9.5 mpg which is acceptable for a vehicle this powerful and heavy. I looked at the Benz S550 and prefer the ride, drive, and style of the Range Rover. The only vehicle I can think of that combines ride quality, style, luxury, and class the way the RR does is the Bentley Flying Spur.

Been wanting a full sized RR since 1989. When i saw the price drop on the 2006 models, I searched high and low to find the white w/sand I wanted. No frills, no heated seats, no entertainment, no luxury package, just the base line RR. I bought it certified with only 27k on it. So far, I can't stop grinning. Every time I look at it and hop in, I still can't believe it's mine. Finally. Audio system is a little clunky. Why so many different screens to perform simple functions? And the controls are a little out of arms reach (and I've got 35" arms.) Some of the materials on the interior are cheap feeling (plastic) but that's all I can think of....

The Range Rover combines great performance, style and capability. Especially the quality of the interior and the sound of the Harman Kardon system are unmatched by any other luxury SUV. Back seat passengers love the heated rear seats in the wintertime. The bluetooth telephone system connected easily with my iPhone and provided good call clarity (people are mostly unaware that I'm speaking with them on the handsfree system). I have found the Range Rover to be surprisingly agile. The cornering ability is impressive for such a large SUV. Driving around town I usually average between 14mpg-15mpg (this is with no highway driving).

Though there are other so-called luxury SUVs, none is as ultimately luxurious and capable as the original, the Range Rover. I've owned many vehicles and for an all-around do-everything car, the Range Rover is peerless. In almost two years, it's only needed regular maintenance - the car doesn't even have a single squeak or rattle, it's that solid. I don't normally write reviews on things, and this car compelled me to.

Bought my RR used with 22K miles. It was a "Factory Reacquired" vehicle, better known as a manufacturer's buyback. I waited for 2,000 miles to write this review to make sure I gave an accurate response. This is a really nice vehicle. The ride is a dream and I feel so safe in it. I have the rear entertainment and satellite radio and both work well. The reason for the buyback was a check engine light that would not go off for the previous owner. Land Rover fixed the problem and gave an extra 12 months and 12,000 miles bumper to bumper warranty (minus a $100 per instance charge) so I thought for the price I would take a shot. I couldn't be happier.

I love the look of the Range Rover and it's very capable off road. Asside from that, this is the most unreliable and frustrating car I have ever owned. I will never buy another one. My service advisors tell me they are "known electrical problems" that they can not fix. Eventually you give up on constantly taking the car back in and live with the headaches.

Wow, what a mistake! We traded a '04 RR in on the '06 RR. Gosh darn it! We read the reviews on the 2006 just like you're doing, and people seemed to like the vehicle, so we traded. I'm sorry for that stupid decision. At least the '04 was decent with the BMW drive. Our '06 is an electronics monster that reared its ugly head when we drove off in it. We've had nothing but trouble with it. They've reprogrammed it and installed software upgrades 12 times and it still surged, shook, vibrated, cut in and out on its own. They can't fix it. We gave up and bought a Mercedes. My suggestion is don't buy one. L/R lost a customer for life.

This was the Range Rover to make amends for the RR problems of the past. It seems it is not to be. Since buying new, I've had repeated problems with "check coolant" light, oil service reminder that would not reset and now a "Suspension System Fault" that they cannot seem to fix (Land Rover's build problem, my dealer is great). The alarm signal sounds, the message light says drop speed below 30 mph. I think I'm done with Land Rover, the is the second lemon I've had in three model years. Designed well and fun to drive, just don't go too far...the reliability is not what it should be for a car in this price range.

I bought this car based on an SMS message from the dealership, stating they have a special year-end offer. I saw the car first at the begging of 06 and it caught my heart but the price was over my budget. But with the new offer I could not resist. The dealer didn’t have a test drive vehicle. So I bought the car anyway based on research done on the net,especially this site. I noticed a lot of reviewers complying of fuel consumption. To me its not a problem because I live in the middle east and gas is cheaper than tap water (you are more than welcome to move here ). I fill up a full tank for $20. I recommend this car to any one with class and at the same time has some coolness left in them

This has been the best vehicle for year around reliability and comfort - complete dominance over inclement conditions (we live in Maine) no road under any condition save for a 40" snowfall would be considered impassable and under the MOST luxurious conditions. Nothing but best experiences with dealership on any and all warranty issues - anyone expecting trouble free experiences with a vehicle with this much techno-lux capability is not living in the real world - but LRNA is really up front about keeping me on the road - if you want this kind of lux w/o problems go get a LEXUS, but don't expect all condition capability in all seasons w. fit and finish among the best euro mfgs.!!!!

This is my second RR...last was an 02 before the body style change. My 06 RR HSE is great car to look at and drive, but the build quality and 'issues' really do bug me. As a professional software engineer I would be ashamed to ship a product that clearly hasn't been finished and tested properly. The Sirius satellite radio doesn't display the correct station information when you next start the car. Already has a new audio control unit after 2000 miles because last one kept dying...dealer fiddled with it, but eventually had to replace the unit. STILL have a rattle in the car which dealer can't find! I will probably get an 07 RRSC but be aware of quality issue's if you want to get a RR.

I just recently bought the 2006 Range Rover Supercharged a week ago. I didn't have the patience to wait for the 2007 model in november, so I got the car off the show room. I got the Chawton White/Ivory with Piano Black Trim and I love the clean look it has. Whenever I sit in the driver's seat I always have a smile on my face because you know you're probably the only person on the road with this car. The way this car just rides and steers just amazes me all the time. This car, even though it's a bit expensive, will satisfy your car needs in every way. It also rides better than my MBZ S500 4Matic.

Great SUV

Owned a 2003 R/R for just over 2 year. It spent over 6 months in and out of the workshop with over 44 different problems. Like a fool I bought a new one 3 months ago and this time I went for the top of the line 2006 Supercharged Wesminster Limited Edition, at almost $100,000. Numerous problems already and it is now in the workshop having a complete brand new ($12,000) engine installed. Crazy! It is less than 3 months old and done just 4000 miles. It has numerous other faults and defects including the paintwork which is covered in orange peal, dirt under the paint, too heavy clear coat etc. etc. The Range Rover MUST be avoided at all cost. Stay away from this SUV because you will regret it!

After having BMW purchase back my 2004 and 2005 645s Total Electronic Lemons, I thought I would never have a good BMW again. I have been a BMW driver for years. Then I got into the 2006 RR HSE and I was back in my 2001 740iL. BMW did a great job on the design of this car and the new Jag engine and trani make it just perfect.

I began having problems immediately after purchasing the vehicle. The most dangerous problem was the lunging and hesitation (dealership claims it was a software / programming issue). I have experienced near death 5 times now! The navigation, radio, blue tooth & voice recognition malfunctioned and some were never repaired, just disconnected by the dealership. The car was lemon-lawed (hauled off on a flatbed trailer 3 weeks ago) and I still have not received my settlement payment as Land Rover has conveniently misplaced the paperwork. I'm still making $1,000 a month car payments and riding a bicycle around town.

The moment I got behind the wheel I knew this was the vehicle made for me. The style both interior and exterior are superb. It drives like a luxury sedan and is quick like a sports car. One of the "funnest" cars I've ever owned. I felt extraordinarily safe driving in the recent torrential rainstorms in my area. It handles extremely well in bad weather.

We recently traded our 2003 RR for the new '06 RR. This may have been a mistake. The biggest complaint has been in the drive train. The '03 RR was based on a BMW V8 from the 740 series. It had 286 hp. The car always seemed to have ample power and acceleration, no matter where you were in the RPM curve. The new '06 is based on a Jaguar/Ford V8. The spec sheet says 305 hp. Frankly, I don't think the engine puts out half that much. It feels anemic, has no pull through the gears. When you finally make the transmission kick-down, the gears seem to have the wrong algorithm. Land Rover probably couldn't afford the price of the BMW powerplant now that it is a Ford company. I miss my '03.

My husband purchased this car as a gift. It was a lemon. The engine was cutting off. They added a chip. Altitude problems they said. The navigation system went insane. Another chip was added. The radio got stuck on a single station and woul not turn off. It finally got fixed. the computer system was changing commands by itself...... the car was more at the shop that with us. Finally we got a new car through trade assist. We have has this one for 3 weeks. Engine light came on the other day. they said it was nothing. We will see...

Dont waste your money....I have had nothing but problems with this SUV since day 2...the voice recognition does not recognize,,,the phone system is usless. The on board computer has froze up enough times to make you go crazy....Either I have a Lemon or the bugs in the electronics were never tested before mass production....I love the driving and comfort, but the electronics braking down all the time is enough for me to reurn the car if I could.

Excellent SUV, if you are looking for the best SUV on the road the Range Rover is it. This is my second Range Rover and it does not disappoint. Compared to the Lexus, and BMW it is the better vehicle and the dealership stands behind the service from delivery to service.

I have the 2006, Jag engine - I was a little suspicious at first but the 6 gears are smooth and give plenty of power when needed. I had my 2000 RR 'til this one and I am pleased to say "you still feel like you are driving a RR, but now it is refined and all the old frustrations and niggly designs have been corrected".

Having driven diesel landrovers for 3 years to drive a s/c V8 beast was just fantastic. Acceleration is phenominal and you can quickly exceed national speed limits without noticing. Going around corners fast is somewhat an experience with such a large vehicle, but stopping power is really good (thank goodness). Fuel consumption is hideous with a max overall of 15 mpg and a town drive of around 11mpg. Best I ever got was 22 on a motorway. But what the hey! the overall drive is just fantastic, sometimes I just pull away flat out just to listen to the V8, even pulled a coach off the road once, surprised me too. Performance is supreme, consumption terrible, but if you can affordone, go for it

Lots of HP, at your command !!!!!

I own the '06 supercharged. i've never been in control of so much horsepower (400hp).I beat sport cars, trying to show -off.only downside that i've noticed since i've had it is , console compartment places, for example..places to put small things that you would use with-in 3-4 days at a time.

I traded in a 2004 HSE for the 2006 Supercharged. The difference is incredible! The power and ride of the Supercharged is a vast improvement on an already great truck! The subtle styling changes are beautiful. The luxury interior is relaxing and refined. The power is unbelievable. Range Rover did an incredible job. The difference in price between the base and Supercharged is worth every penny!

Just got new range rover hse, blue with sand interior, including the luxury pack, and satellite radio. I was planning on the supercharged model but dealer told us that the hse was smoother and quieter, so we lobbied for the hse. It looks fantastic and accelerates with authority. Interior is luscious with luxo pack, i get so confused with the number of available positions because there are so many! Driving is unbelievable and navigation system is a great addition to the already sophisticated electronics. Love it and worth the investment!

I had the misfortune of owning a first gen Discovery which I traded in for a wonderful Lexus LX470. The LX470 was my favorite ever but this Range Rover is very cool and definitely a competitor for the best ever. Love the Lux Package comfort, Nav Unit and Integrated Bluetooth Phone. Nice SUV. A little pricy at the Dealer. Saved from $84,000 MSRP to $68,750 on E BAy! 2000 miles!

Owned this car for almost 3 months. My second of New Generation Range rover. Quality issues seems improved in comparison to the 2003. Luxury seating package made a huge difference in offering more comfort. New integrated phone system is a great feature and I just enjoy safer driving. Nav system is a great improvement. 2005 seems tighter than 2003. It's just a great SUV. I only wish it had more leg room in rear seat.
