  1. Waited 5 months for my SV Autobiography - should I take it?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Hello, All. As the title says. I ordered this in September, and was told arrival by December. Now I feel it's halfway through the model year and the wait has been long in the tooth, and not necessarily the bang for the buck I expected. I read on this forum that orders for 2020's would begin in...

    Hi all, I've an L322 (2010 model) 5.0l SC.

  3. New RR Velar Owner - 2 months in

    Range Rover Velar / L560
    Hello! This is my first RR purchase, coming from 10 years of owning Mercedes. I came from the ever so basic Mercedes GLA250, so the Velar has a LOT to offer me. We went with the D180 R-Dynamic. First off, the diesel gas mileage is incredible. Yes, I agree with most about the gas tank...

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    So I have had my 2016 RRS Dynamic Supercharge 5.0 for 2 months now. Overall, very happy with my purchase. My only real gripe(s) are no remote start and the length of time it takes for the AC to kick on after startup. Why is this my gripe? I live in Phoenix and every car I have owned for the past...

    Finally, After 5 months, I was told my car had arrived.

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    I'm really pleased NOW, that I have had to wait 6 months for my Sport... I'm in the UK, but it sounds like we all have to wait around 6 months for our Sports. When I first decided on a RR, I was very disappointed to be told that there was a 6-month waiting list. However, with about 10 weeks...

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    About a month before my holiday mid Aug, I replaced the thermostat and water pump on my 2002 4.4.

  17. This Months Issue of Car and Driver Magazine...

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    has a review, albeit short, on the 2014 RRS V8. Being a long time reader of C&D I am interested in their opinion. The way I read it, their only real knock was that maybe if LR were to eliminate some of the off-road prowess (read weight) the RRS could be even better. Personally, I like...
