#407 of 1131 FORD/LANDROVER BACKING
May 06, 2007 (5:31 am)
It is so exciting to see the excitement each has for their new Land Rover LR2.. The true test will be time and how much you will have to pay for you LR2 in a year or years.
Time spent in Shop? Time spent being towed? Money out of pocket because parts used when built were CHEAP and Land Rover and Ford will say.. OH>> THAT IS NOT A WARRANTY ITEM.
You will then find out that LAND ROVER AND FORD ...
Does NOT support their faulty products and your new LR2 will be a item in a gargae being FIXED OR REPAIRED DAILY..
I had the 2002 Freelander and 2004 replaced the 2002 which NO MONEY was transferred over which I had already 15,000 paid in on the 2002 and 30,000.00 in 4 years with NO TRADE IN VALUE.. DO NOT BUY.. from LAND ROVER IN FORT WORTH TEXAS, because you will not have the quality support by this Dealer and Land Rover/Ford ignores the problems as well... BUYER BE WARE..
Great concept SUV.. Time will tell.. on how GREAT you feel after 12,000 to 30,000 miles and shop time .

Looks like I jinxed myself
#409 of 1131 First Impressions

Have had my LR2 for a few days now and must say I am very impressed. The ride is smooth and the stereo system is outstanding (I have the tech package). If you can afford it, I'd highly recommend getting the lighting package, the Xenon lights are outstanding and really change the look of the vehicle. Navigation system is one of the best i've seen installed in a car. I also think this car needs to be in black, it looks outstanding in a clean black.
Only complaints are the lack of homelink for the garage door, this makes no sense. I also think the floormats could have been nicer.
Overall, very impressed and really look forward to driving the car more.

What do you think of the trunk space? My concern is that it may be a little small. I am usually carrying either two sets of golf clubs, or two to three baseball bags for my kids and the space seems pretty small. Just wanted some feedback on real world use if the trunk space is good or bad.

I picked up my new LR2 last Friday and so far have loved it all weekend. But my Verizon Motorola Q so far won't bond with the LR2 bluetooth. The dealers tech guy will look at it today. So will keep you all posted.

I can't speak to golf or baseball bags, but I can tell you I went to the supermarket this weekend and a cart filled to the brim worth of groceries fit in the back. I don't think I could have squeezed another bag in though!
I have tried to hook up my Blackberry 8100 Pearl with no luck. The phone is not supposed to be compatible but I was hoping it was partially compatible- no luck. My boyfriend's LG synced perfectly though (it's the envy one). Great quality sound and really easy to use. Has anyone had any luck with any smart phones (preferably sold by T-Mobile)? I am going to have to get a new phone because I love the feature and want my phone to be compatible.
I am getting about 16mpg right now using 91 octane. Not so happy about that but I am hoping it is because I am still breaking the car in (just reached 700 miles). It could also be the southern california stop and go traffic, but I am hoping it's the former.
Things I Love:
Real head turner! I travel between LA and Orange County and people are always checking out my car- I still have only seen one other one on the road.
Comfortable- interior is fantastic and ride is extremely smooth. Surprises all of my passengers.
Sound system is great (I have the tech package).
Navigation is easy to use.
Things I Don't Love:
Navigation is missing some Points of Interest (Restaurants/Shopping) that aren't that new.
I have had to clean the tires very often due to break dust. Is this just because the breaks are new (I hope), and can anyone recommend some kind of protectant(sp?)?
#413 of 1131 silly question
May 07, 2007 (8:41 am)
does the nav play a DVD movie when the car is parked?
Just ordered and get mine in a month all 3 packages.
has anyone found a good owners club forum? Also, anyone know where to find the owners manual online (give me something to do while I wait)

Yahoo. Took my LR2 to the Verizon store and the tech guy got my Motorola Q to work today.
So for I'm getting around 17.6 mpg. This weekend I take it on a road trip to Iowa. So I'll see how good the gas mileage goes up.

Good Luck to you!
The attached is a listing of phones that will work:
I have a Pearl and am out of luck for now!
Sorry but it seems that the Q also does not work.
But you still have one great vehicle.
Perhaps in the future LR will provide some flash updates to include more phones.
Also, LR Chantilly is having an event of some sorts this weekend. I'll confirm and post for those of us in NoVA!
