Land Rover Range Rover

Land Rover's flagship SUV is the famed Range Rover model. First introduced in 1970, it combines upscale styling and features with exceptional off-road capabilities, a mixture that has made it an icon of luxury and sophistication worldwide. Under the hood, the Range Rover offers a variety of engines, including a supercharged V6, a powerful V8, and efficient diesel and plug-in hybrid variants, while inside it boasts a cabin fit for royalty (the late Queen Elizabeth was in fact known to drive one) with high-quality materials, comfortable seating for up to five passengers, and plenty of advanced technology and driver-assistance features. However, a Range Rover isn't for everyone. Its high price tag is prohibitive for most, and its fuel efficiency, particularly with the V8, is subpar for the class. Additionally, buyers should expect repair and maintenance bills for the Range Rover to be higher than average.

The infotainment center is well below par. Other than that, it's a pleasure to own and drive.

The only thing I dislike is the visor; the shade I pull down to block the sun. They're at an angle so it really doesn't block the sun.

They need to work on the telephone system. It's not exceptional. Also, wish there was more variety of storage in the front cabin for "stuff" that has to be in the car (coins, keys, etc.).

My wife & I absolutely love our new Range Rover Evoke and have received numerous compliments on it. We just returned from a road trip to the mountains and the vehicle handled flawlessly.

Ragged transmission upshifts at takeoff, harsh riding tires, road noise cause dissatisfaction of what is otherwise an enjoyable vehicle.

Two issues with functionality: 1) I hate how if you unbuckle your seat belt and put the gear in park, the car sometimes shuts off, and sometimes does not. I have had several situations when I don't want the car to shut off, but it does involuntarily (e.g., unbuckling seat belt to reach ATM, when at a red light and I want to take off a sweater, at a drive-thru window, waiting for someone but want to keep the car on, etc.). The programming should be changed so it doesn't automatically shut off just because I unbuckle and put it in park. If I want to turn the vehicle off, I'll press the Stop button myself. At very least if this feature is intentional, it should be an option that can be turned on/off, or at least be consistent (sometimes it does it, sometimes it doesn't, which is hard to predict and rely upon). 2) This one I really hate. If I'm connected to my phone via Bluetooth and talking to someone, and I park and want to continue the conversation, I have to press the "Use Handset" button on the console (which is fine) before leaving the vehicle. However, the next time I am in the car and I receive a call, the button "Use Handset" is still turned on, and if I answer the call, it goes to my handset. I then have to fumble wtih the phone and console, tell the person to hold on, while trying to go through the console menu to get to the "Use Handset" button to get the audio back onto Bluetooth. This is extremely frustrating, not to mention dangerous while still driving. The system should be reconfigured so that each time the car is turned off and restarted on the next trip, the "Use Handset" button is no longer active and the Phone system defaults back to routing calls via Bluetooth.
