I think that's just one of those shovelware articles.


That said, they've been offering that autonomous stuff for a couple of years now.

I'm with you but those torque numbers sound good.

Don't get me wrong, I'll take hill decent control....and something like the Toyota Land Cruiser off road turn setting (which actually works)
But leave out any self driving, dual clutches, night vision, or other crap.
I'm truly scared these things are going to come over here loaded to the gills and be techno nightmares for soccer moms. If they do then I'll do what I did with the lr3 and wait a while and buy at a 75% discount

I have to say, some of the individual systems they are looking to put on their high end vehicles is pretty cool stuff, and some of it really is good for off roading. Personally, I won't ever be able to own one of the high end vehicles, and really don't much want to. But to have a range of trims from the base Defender to the high end would be my hope.... I hope....

Please, don't let them use that stupid electric parking brake that's on the LR4. The parking brake nearly left me stuck several times while parked on a slight incline. Manually freeing the parking brake involves a frustrating iteration of cable pulling (better have a tool handy) and re-starting of the truck; I no longer use the parking brake. Stupid, stupid idea. Fixing the parking brake on an LR4 is a 4-digit expense for parts alone.

Ha! I've decided no to use the ebrake or the sun roof due to the shitty quality/workmanship and I cross my fingers that the rear hatch opens on my LR4.

Gah - the sun roof too? I've only used it about 10 times, no problems so far. I guess it'll give out next time I need to close it for a hail storm.

The dealership did quite a bit of work on the rear hatch under warranty. Maybe there's some sort of voodoo doll I can use to keep it going now that it's out of warranty.

I haven't heard of any sunroof issues on the LR3 (unlike the prior discoveries) other than the draining problems - which aren't affected by whether or not you use it.

Yeah, just got it in Oct. Honestly I love the way it looks, the size and drive but the interior isn't a picture of robust components. Nothing like the rugged interiors the Classics and P38's or D1's had.
