Excellent drive, faultless
Ex land rover display car, bought with 16k km , now with 40k km, has not missed a beat. Mainly some short commutes and longer weekend drives. Excellent tow car; had a 2t caravan that it towed as if the van wasn't there. Brilliant drive whatever the surface.
Range Rover Sport is a lemon
I only drive moderately and car is only used lightly not to its full capacity. I have had problems since buying the car and today was quoted $2400 for a gearbox module replacement and my car warranty just finished in April. I cannot believe I paid so much for a Range Rover which is causing me problems within the 3 years. Customer service at Trivett Parramatta is crap. I also called customer relations and Adam spoke to me as if I was a child and said cars can start having problems as soon as they leave the dealer.

It goes wrong after warranty expires
The 2014 SE Diesel is a great car although I'm disappointed with a few things - The Range Rover name has tarnished on the bonnet. The airbag warning light remains on and according to Landrover needs a new harness at $900! How does a harness fail? It's never been off road yet it has a suspension fault that requires another $2,600 to be spent! Seems as though the electronic suspension is frail. All happened just after warranty with 75,000kms on the clock. No help from Landrover. It is galling that a $130k vehicle that is less than 4 years old is already failing. Perhaps the Range Rover reliability is not fixed on the new model. Never had a problem on the old Pajero!
Great Car, Fantastic Drive
Perfection - the car drive is fantastic and the car is faultless. Although the base price is quite basic, we upgraded a number of items. Having come from a Mercedes C Class, there were a number of items i found missing or upgrades, however overall we are extremely happy with this vehicle and we will be sure to look in again for our next car also
ok but a few things
Previously had the supercharged Sport. Nice to drive but the music system is so bad, its tinny and the whole car shakes, the seat movement button is down the left hand side so cannot be reached when driving and the door needs to be open to move the seat.. The music system definitely lets this car down that's for sure.
Brilliant to drive and very economical fuel consumption. I have TV6 SE but the level of standard equipment are down side.. unless you get SV6 HSE. But it is very nice car. quiet engine, love it so far.. no problem to date. it has done 16,000kms and we love it..
Over the moon with this purchase. After testing a lot of comparable cars in size, engine, and price we knew it had to be the Range Rover. Comfort is awesome, offers a good level of customisation from the dealer and is affordable to own and run. Outclasses it's competitors and love the onroad presence.

An Excellent Vehicle........ BUT!
When I first purchased the SE SDV6 Range Rover in Dec 2015 I thought I had stepped up a notch from my BMW X5 3L Diesel. The fact is that I am no longer sure of this belief. The Range Rover is a nice car of that I have no doubt; however with the few options I had installed, the bottom line purchase cost of the car was $128k. This was considerably dearer than the new BMW X5 and marginally dearer than the Merc 350 GL. The car drives nice and is very comfortable. The ride is without a doubt one of the best I have experienced, however that is wher...e the plus ends. The car lacks a lot of the extra's found standard in the Merc and the BMW. Whilst many of the extra's I refer to are available in the Range Rover they come as extra's with a hefty price tag, which would have made the overall cost of the vehicle uncompetative. That said I chose the Range Rover for its comfort and the fact that the wife felt more comfortable driving it. She could hardly see over the steering wheel of the Merc (which she called a truck) and the BMW had poor comfort and road noise in comparison because of run flat tyres. I wanted a vehicle that could comfortably pull our 24ft Crusader Caravan. The BMW had done this with comparative ease but sluggish to respond especially whilst climbing. The Range Rover with twin turbos was and is quicker to respond and overall handles a little better in my opinion. The big.... no ....MASSIVE.... let down, is the vehicles cruise control. It controls absolutely nothing. If you run over anything larger than a matchstick it will pick up speed and not come back Traveling through the many tunnels we have in Brisbane you dare not use the cruise control as the speed limits are monitored by camera all throughout the system and the mild up and down nature of the road has the car moving from a set 80kph to over 100kph within a few hundred meters of entering the tunnel. I had not been booked for speeding since I was a young fellow in my early 20's; I am now 69; however since I have purchased the Range Rover I have been booked twice and both times whilst on cruise control. Needless to say I no longer use cruise control and this is a big minus for someone who does long distances towing a caravan. Prior to purchasing the car I asked if the vehicle had cruise control as this was a critical point for me. The BMW had an excellent cruise control as has the Merc. On a scale of 1 to 10 I give the Range Rover - 5. Pathetic to not strong enough a word to describe it. The designers would have been better off with a hand throttle. It is so disappointing when you buy a car that is purported to be one of the best in class and you get this compromise almost as an after thought just tossed in to make do. Not Good enough. My first Range Rover will be my last if this is not remedied. Another minor point but worth mentioning, every other cat I have purchased for as long as I can remember gave the first service for free or just the cost of the oil. My first service in the Range Rover was almost $1000. Not Happy Jan !
Unbelievably Good The Best
This is our 4th Sport and the best so far. Excellent resale and the most comfortable ,competent vehicle on the road. The new model brings more power and unbelievable fuel economy. This vehicle is the real hing of the road bar none. We have NEVER had a problem with the 4 Range Rover Sport we have owned over the last 8 years
