i recently took delivery of the new V8 HST at a cost of £60,000 obviously expecting nothink less than perfection and for the first ten days thats what i thought id got,until our first warm sunny day when i noticed ripples appearing down each side of the cars roof. the tempricture was only about 25-30 deg/c yet the roof seemed to have expanded causing dents and ripples running from the front of the sun roof back towards the rear of the roof,it looked terrible. on contacting and showing the supplying dealers they dismissed the fault as characteristics of the car!!? As the day cooled so did the cars roof which seemed to pull back into shape leaving only the slightest of ripples. the following week brought more sunny warm weather and again my cars roof expanded, by the end of the week my cars roof looked as though id had a party on it. it makes you wonder what would happen if we have a heat wave? one month on from taking delivery and neither the dealers nor the manufactures will admit that there is an issue,so next its legal action! to all new owners or potntial buyers take a good look at the vehicles roof and report what you find according to Land Rover im the only roof complaint to date? appart from that the cars good.
I love my car ! ok, its expensive to run, but I used to have a lexus rx and to be honest, really havent noticed. The last car was pertol though. To a previous reviewer, who filled up their diesil car with pertol- did you really not notice the BIG yellow sticker, reminding you it was diesil !! We have had fab service throughout, its just done its first service, brake pads were shot.I leave my braking a little late, but I had the same problem with the lexus. I test drove the new bmw x5, but like other people could not justify spending so much money on a car that look so much like the old one. I love it, its king of the road !
My dad has owned his new Sport for about a month now, and ever since the moment he picked it up we have all been in love with it, he owned a X5 before this, and this is just miles better in everything it does. He drove the New X5 and wasnt impressed because it didnt feel very different to its predecessor, we think BMW are beginning to get lazy with their design, as when a new X5 drives past, you have to really squint to see if it is the new, or the old model. His X5 was very very dated, and all BMW seemed to have done was update it to fit the current market, thats why BMW are struggling to sell the new model.
The Range Rover Sport is a 5 star car, yes okay the MPG may not be politically correct, but compared to the old 3.0 diesel in his X5 where we would get 25 MPG on a long motorway run, and in the Sport where we get almost 30 MPG, and also with the Sport having extra power, weight and two more cylinders, you wonder 'why'?
I thoroughly recommend the Range Rover Sport to anyone that is buying a Top of the Range SUV.
I have owned by V8 for just over 2 weeks and I love it! It is well designed, bringing looks of envy for both the exterior design and the impressive interior. I test drove the V6 and it was just too slow so I test drove the new BMW X5 which was nice, but I couldn't find a comfortable seating position (being 5'2"). So the descision was made to go for the RRS V8. I would recommend it any day over any other 4x4. Running costs are high, what do you expect from a RRS? I'm averaging 25MPH which is what Land Rover say I'll get so I'm happy.
Not only is it a fantastic car, but it looks great and I'm a very happy driver.
