We've discussed these separately but frankly, I do not feel like digging up and resurrecting all those threads. Brief reminder about my LR4: August 2013 HSE LUX, HD pkg, 37k miles. We drove up to Acadia. Total of about 800 miles driven. Awesome trip. Love it up there. 1) I still love the Conti Terraincontact A/T's. Super smooth in the highway. Sadly, I got a flat. Besides the gigantic PITA that is to empty 4 bikes and a FULLY packed cargo area to access the full spare, I was so glad to have the spare. The trip continued without a hitch. But using that jack by the book... oh man. I was dead level with the jack dead vertical and still, despite religiously following directions it looked like the jack could buckle at any moment, so I stopped and was looking a couple of 2-by's to get me another 3 inches of height. A friendly commercial driver with a SuperDuty lent me his Ford bottle jack and that saved me from looking around for too long. Pretty lame. Lesson: carry a couple of small pieces of 2x4 or get a bottle jack with sufficient travel. I need to get that tire patched. It's a broken framing nail pretty much in the middle of the tire, so I expect no issues long term. 2) I had that "empty coolant reservoir" incident during Xmas break in Canada. I topped it off then with properly diluted LR coolant and have still not seen the level drop at all in 8 months and 4k miles. Weird. Never a trace of a leak. 3) The transmission still shifts beautifully. So much so, that I am really wondering if it is too soon to service it this fall at 6 years and <40k miles. Maybe I should wait until 8 years and 50-55k miles. Also, it really is amazing how low in the rpm range the transmission works in during normal driving - hardly ever over 2krpm. The SUV is kinda sneaky fast if you do let it rev. I do sense a resonance at 2.5-2.8krpm. It's always been there. It's not bad but the engine/car doesn't sound as silky smooth. I recall someone posting about a rattle at that rpm range. Not surprising.
