At first I was like first class seats in an airplane are comparable to your average luxury car set.  But from the pic, those look pretty sweet.  The tray table seems a bit much, however,  you don't eat or drink in my $200,000 car.

Land/Range Rover.

Because Chryslers are just too reliable. Seriously, even $50,000 is a lot of money to spend on a car that's going to start losing parts at 20k miles.

I was thinking more along the lines of a place for a laptop.

If you can afford that you can afford to have the dealer figure it out and fix it

A lovely environment to sit in while waiting for the tow truck.

Whats wrong with eating in your own car?  If you buying this version, you mostly likely have a driver.  I would guess part of the drivers job is to keep the vehicle clean.

I agree, for that kinda money. You'll get out and eat your Taco Bell on the side of the road & then use the roller before reentry. Let me know when they put http://www.digsdigs.com/10-the-most-comfortable-lounge-chairs-in-the-w orld/ this in there. I like the Zen Recliner, although it may be too short for someone of average height like myself.

I think if you have a car like that, you are in the back seat and have a driver.

If I wanted a Land Rover, it would be the old school ones that you can fix with twine and a hammer.

the original land rover - the series I, II and III - was reliable because it was simple.

but, yeah, if i want complex luxury, i'll go german or japanese, thank you.

$50? Subby apparently hasn't been on an international flight lately.
 
2013-10-30 10:19:18 AM  
Yeah, but how much is it to stow a helmet in the back window?

This. I'm in Manhattan where luxury vehicles are at every stoplight. There are gorgeous luxury cars that are impossible to look away from and then there are these eyesores. Range Rovers are absolutely hideous.

So, the word on this came out yesterday.  We've already gotten like 14 calls from people in China, Russia, and Dubai who want to order them.

Me: "OK, where do you live?"

Them: "Uhh. . .  <rapidly tapping keyboard sounds> . . . Nashua, New Hampshire."

Me:  "Oh.  Alright.  So what's the zip code there?"

Them: "Umm . . .  <even more feverish typing>  . . ."

Great point, that's exactly it. There are so many other nice vehicles to spend that money on.

Asians, especially here in Vancouver, seem to love them.

Especially the new Evoque (it is an "interesting" looking vehicle). See lots of them around, not one non-asian driver.

Inconveniences of an airplane-design-based SUV


10. Gasoline is only $3 a gallon, but the Cokes cost $5 a can.
09. You are legally required to have a co-pilot, other than God.
08. You can't use your electronic devices while the vehicle is in motion.
07. It burns through 50 gallons of fuel every minute.
06. It's really hard to park in a standard width garage or parking spot.
05. You need 40 acres to turn this rig around.
04. David Letterman-like lists proliferate in threads about the SUV.
03. They are exactly as funny as David Letterman lists usually are.
02. Once they are airborne, they tend to stay airborne.
01. They explode on hitting the tarmac.

The Range Rover Evoque styling is better, though doubt there is room for a suitcase.

I kind of liked it at first but the more I look at it the more I think it's a balloon animal that floated away from a carny.

The only people that should own Range Rovers (and mostly do) are ones that have numerous other backup vehicles that they can drive while the Rover is in the shop.

Maybe it's just me, but I much prefer them to the other large luxury SUVs out there, with the possible exception of the Mercedes R-class.  I find the Escalade, Navigator, Cayenne, Infiniti QX, and Lexus LX to be quite ugly, the Infiniti and Porsche especially.  I know that Range Rovers are generally quite unreliable, but I find them to be much more aesthetically pleasing that the others.

My friend has a 2004 Discovery and his wife has a 2007 HSE.

Neither of their vehicles have been in the shop for major repairs. My other friend had an HSE for years as well and never had major problems.

Maybe they just got lucky, but personally I've never know anyone who has had major catastrophic problems with their Rovers.

/your experiences may vary.

Airplane seats? You mean narrow, uncomfortable with little leg room and someone reclining into your lap?

*checks article*

Yup
 
2013-10-31 02:24:55 AM  
I was about to pop round to the dealer to buy one,
but then I saw "...V8 petrol engine ..."
meh,
I will will just have to keep driving the hilux until they make this with a diesel.
Offroad in petrol? I bet the bloody thing is an auto too.

Perhaps I could drop those nice leather seats into the hilux?

could work?

Gorgeous. Love the seats, but not so much the champagne chiller and other crap. One of my goals is to employ a driver, but, seriously, chilled champagne? I only want a driver so I can work while traveling. Not to tickle my nose with bubbles.

Most Range Rovers are available with diesel engines. They're very popular here. In the UK the Jaguar estate is only available in diesel.

And auto boxes are better for some uses, such as towing a horsebox which is a common use for LR cars.
