I have a 2010 Range Rover Sport Supercharged but I have never towed with it. I did not care to waste the money on the wiring harness and hitch. The dealership gets enough of money just doing service so I opt to pull with the 2013 GMC 3500.

Is your Land Rover still under warranty and/or do you have roadside assistance?

I've towed thousands of miles with my LR3 for the past 5 years with no problems at all. What are you worried about? The vehicle's towing capacity is way higher than the weight of the boat.

After Ford bought Land Rover the quality issues went away. 86,000 miles on mine so far and have never had any problems. Not sure what's going to happen now that they've been bought out by some company in India.

My 2012 LR4 tows way better than my 2009 LR3 the 5.0 V8 is awesome. I use an upside down 2" drop bar and it perfect. Gotta love air suspension! Rumors are the V8 will be dropped for the supercharged V6.......on 2014. Wish they would just work on the diesel for the states....

You guys check out the new sport? Looks to BMW for me but haven't seen it in person.

I saw the new Sport an the new Rangie at the factory last November. They both are a little shocking the first time you see them if you are used to the look they have had since '03, but after you really take it in I think they look great. The new versions are the only 100% aluminum SUVs in the world. Both are somewhere near 800 lbs lighter now. Rumor is we will be getting a diesel hybrid on our side of the pond. I agree completely with brettmess, I have no idea why we don't get the awesome diesels they have in Europe and the 35 mpg that comes with them.

Anyone’s brakes go earlier that normal brakes on their LR4? Mine wore out at about 20,000 miles. Seems early compared to my HD Chevy truck which lasted 50-60K. Dealer wanted to charge me $800 just to do the rears. I did them this weekend, took me 2 hours and $200 for all four breaks I installed EBC Green Stuff pads.

Land Rovers will eat brakes and tires and they aren't cheep to replace. I stopped going to the LR dealer after my first trip there for oil change and cost me $100. I have a buddy that works a ford dealer and ended up doing all my service there and it was about half the price of LR. They are nice suv's but not cheap when you have to service them.

You'll be replacing rotors at your next change, FYI. At least the fronts. I've always had the best luck with OEM Rover parts. My Suburban went 80K before it needed front pads, my Disco is about every 20K-30K.
