    Intelligent stop/start able to be disabled 2015/2016?

    You're a little confused on your math. Zero miles travelled divided by any number of gallons burned is never a negative number. Say you idle at a traffic light for a year & burn 10,000 gallons of gas. 0 miles traveled divided by 10,000 gallons consumed is zero miles per gallon. I'm finding it...

    Intelligent stop/start able to be disabled 2015/2016?

    1. it's physically impossible to get negative MPG. Think about it. 2. You're assuming no fuel penalty for the stop-start itself. if you stop-start for just a few seconds, and you frequently will, you actually consume more fuel due to the extra consumed to restart the engine vs idling. 3. The...

    Intelligent stop/start able to be disabled 2015/2016?

    here's the real truth about stop-start: it does very little to improve mileage in real-world driving and adds a layer of mechanical complexity and is frankly annoying. It does allow manufacturers to score better in the artificial drive test required for European fuel economy ratings. Basically...

    Liftmaster Garage Door Opener

    I have liftmasters and they won't program to homelink in the LR4 without those stupid repeaters. I just use the included remote because I'm lazy.

    Initial Impressions - 2015 LR4 HSE LUX

    I've driven without a front plate for 15+ years, probably 10 different cars, with no issues here in California. But yes, technically ticketable. A ticket I'd be willing to pay. Especially with my Tesla which relies heavily on aerodynamics and has front sensors in the nose cone. I've never had a...

    Disabling 2014 ECO Switch

    Keep in mind that stop-start is used to game the European fuel economy's been shown that it makes little to no actual real-world difference to fuel economy, it simply allows manufacturers to score higher MPG on the test and thus display on the window sticker. One of many examples of...

    New Discovery Sport

    Expect the LR5 to look like a 12/10ths version of this...they will share the same design language. IMO putting a 3rd row in a vehicle this small is comical. It reminds me of the 3rd row in the prev gen X5 but even worse in terms of zero leg room.

    Frustration with '14 availability

    Even better than gap insurance is a big enough down payment that you're never upside down.

    Frustration with '14 availability

    You don't need it. It's a profit center for dealers. And if you can afford a lr4 your neighborhood is safe and you're parking in a garage.

    life with LR4

    I bought my 2011 3 years/30k miles ago (wife's car). It's been trouble free. Just regular service and a set of tires. Water pump was noted to be leaking and replaced under warranty during a regular service. It goes through brakes and tires (and gas) pretty briskly but attribute that to a heavy...

    2011 LR4 HSE LUX Mirror Auto Fold ?

    More than likely that warranty is worth more or less the paper it's printed on. Sounds like an aftermarket, or even dealer-backed inclusionary warranty meaning it will list a couple dozen specific things it will cover and everything else is on your dime. Having said that my 2011 which is still...

    Is buying an LR4 w/ 66k miles madness?

    Search carmax, they always have a dozen or so LR4s and you can buy their very good extended warranty. There's several articles over on Jalopnik about how one of their contributers bought a Range Rover from carmax and their extended warranty has been used extensively with good results.

    2015 LR4/Discovery 4

    My first MkIII Range Rover cost 80k. Check out the prices of MkiVs, if you can even find them. Dealers aren't even ordering models built out less than 100k. There is a LWB autobiography here in Fresno listed at $250k!!! Theoretically you can still order a stripper sub-HSE for reasonable money...

    2015 LR4/Discovery 4

    Before you get your panties in a knot remember LRs near term strategy....the LR/Discovery is moving upmarket to fill the void left by the now stratospherically expensive Range Rover. The off-road purists will have a new family of off-road oriented vehicles soon, slotted below Discovery.
