2011 LR4 HSE LUX IS AWESOME
Pros: THE ENTIRE VEHICLE
Cons: THE NAVIGATION- IT IS A BIT COMPLICATEDI HAVE OWNED THE 2011 LR4 HSE LUX FOR 5 MONTHS. IT NOW HAS APPROX 5K MILES NOW ON IT. IT DRIVES LIKE A DREAM, SUPERIOR VIEW, RIDE, COMFORT, HANDLING AND POWER. THE NAVIGATION IS A BIT TEDIOUS, BUT WORKS FINE, IT LACKS SMALL STORAGE COMPARTMENTS, BUT EXCELS AT HAULING AND SPACE. YOU CAN BUY A LARGER SUV, A BETTER THOUGHT OUT SUV, BUT THE LR4 IS THE ULTIMATE IN SOPHISTICATION, COMFORT, POWER, ATTENTION GETTER, FAMILY VEHICLE FUN, AND YOU CAN DRIVE IT TO THE ART MUSEAM OR TO HOME DEPOT. THE SOUND SYSTEM IS INCREDIBLE, ADULTS AND KIDS LOVE TO SHOW IT OFF AND RIDE IN IT
good value - best 4x4 with comfort
Pros: off road capability coupled with great street habits
Cons: fuel economyThe LR4 is a very quiet and capable SUV - unbeatable in 4x4 use. The variable air suspension works great and the sound proofing is superior to other makes I have owned. It is a 'thirsty' car but then it is heavy, well built and full of electronics. I like the design of the rear seats allowing a totally flat hauling surface when folded. The user interface with the Nav, Audio etc. units takes a while getting used to, but once familiar with it works well. The car is well built, and Quality Control seems to have improved. My only wish would be a Diesel engine instead of the thirsty Jaguar V8 engine.
