what does the HSE get on the highway?gbrown3622 said:Have an 06 SC and consistantly get 11-12MPG in the city. When on the highway even at 80mph it is not unusual to get 17-18MPG. I guess when you get all that weight up to speed the tranny takes a load off
Neither of my two sports ever saw 19-20 mpg's. you must be feeding them some vegan, whole grain, high protein healthy diet. On the east coast we just feed our Sports gas.fixthedoor said:You gents have heavy right feet. Between my wife and I we usually get 16.5 -17 around town and 19-20+ on the highway (70-80), according to the onboard computer anyway.
The main difference in the cars I feel was the brakes. the SC has AMAZING brakes but not the HSE. It is something I have to test drive again and figure out.TriGem2k said:Here's my thing...I'm buying an SUV not a race car. There is no Rover that is going to put up with the Porsche in the garage so why spend the extra $$. When I was looking for my rover I thought about a SC however I just wasn't able to justify the extra $$ for power I am never really going to use.
I've driven my sisters 2008 HSE and even the power in that feels more than enough. The flip side is the saying that goes "get the best one you can afford" in that case being the SC. I'd rather spend the extra $$ personalizing my Rover than added power...
thats why im starting to think if the SC is worth it or not.TriGem2k said:I agree with you on that one. The larger brembos definitely have some intense "bite" to them.
It's a 5700 lb SUV. And yes, the Brembo's are amazingly capable. Feels like you're braking a 3500 lb sports car.ET7 said:
