2007 4dr SUV turbocharged 190hp 2.7L V6 Diesel
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD w/low range
Land Rover havereally pulled their QC into gear. Nothing wrong at all on this vehicle, and reports indicate the same on all of this model.

Only regular maintenance trip to the dealership

Constantly in the shop. Electrical issues. Towed in for repair 3 times in the last 3 weeks.
2005 4dr SUV 300-horsepower 4.4L V8
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD w/low range
Overall, my car has been very reliable--particularly with respect to the major drivetrain components of the vehicle. However, items like the rear windshield wiper, the tailgate, the stereo, the horn, etc. have had numerous issues.
2005 4dr SUV 300-horsepower 4.4L V8
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD w/low range
Electrical system is a joke. It's like Christmas time year round on my dashboard, with every single warning sign built into the vehicle lit up. The windows and rear gate work VERY sporadicly, often leaving me with a window down in the rain.
2005 4dr SUV 300-horsepower 4.4L V8
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD w/low range
Lots of suspension and fuel system problems.

5-speed shiftable automatic 4WD w/low range
Like the new body style and ride, very smooth for a truck. Gas mileage with the new 6 seems to be very good for such a large truck so far. The seating is spacious and the hvac works well for such a large seating area. The features on the limited exceed

2007 4dr SUV 236-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD w/low range
This thing is over-the-top-reliable. I take it off-road, slam the under-belly on to rocks, bull it over large stones like a Hummer, pull over 10,000 lbs for drives well over 2 hours (it stinks of sulfer on the hills but...) - only in shop for oil/brakes.

2003 4dr SUV 235-horsepower 4.7L V8
5-speed automatic RWD
I seemed to have a lemon, with many electrical problems over the 7 years. Door lock actuators broke 8 times (for 4 doors), an AC sensor forced a new compressor, I replaced the AC control panel, I replaced the AC clutch relay and had other such problems.
