Benefits of Driving a 2009 Land Rover Range Rover Sport Utility

The 2009 Land Rover's flagship Range Rover has few peers and stands as one of the most luxurious and off-road-capable sport utility vehicles at any price. A proven platform, powerful engine choices, and well-equipped interior combine to form one of the most attractive true trail warriors available.

The 2009 Range Rover comes in two luxurious variants, the V8-powered HSE, with a 305-horsepower 4.4L engine, and the SC model, with its 400-horsepower 4.2L supercharged V8. Both engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with Sport and CommandShift modes.

TheCarConnection.com's SUV editors drove the Range Rover in order to give you an expert opinion; in addition, TheCarConnection.com has read a wide range of reviews and road tests for the 2009 Land Rover Range Rover to produce this conclusive review and help you make a smart, informed choice for your next luxury vehicle.

Despite the emergence of Escalades, Navigators, X5s, and G-Class SUVs, the Land Rover Range Rover remains the ultimate luxury sport-utility vehicle. It's the official off-roader of the English royal family, of course, and the choice of Hollywood elite.

The base Range Rover HSE is powered by a 4.2-liter V-8 engine with 305 horsepower and retails for more than $77,000. Both the HSE and the Supercharged edition--with 400 horsepower, a 0-60 mph time of 7.1 seconds, and a price tag of more than $92,000--get the same fuel mileage of 12 mpg city, 18 highway. Based on the experience of TheCarConnection.com editors, real-world mileage of the Range Rover in combined conditions is at the low end of that range.

Both models are strong performers. On-road handling is sharp enough, with slow but progressive steering--clearly geared more for off-road prowess than quick changes of direction--and a composed ride, achieving reasonable handling for such a tall, heavy (6,000-plus pounds) vehicle. The supercharged version makes an unmistakable whine that should appeal to enthusiasts.

The 2009 Land Rover Range Rover really shines when the pavement ends. Land Rover's Terrain Response system ensures traction in sand, snow, and mud. The suspension's height is adjustable for crossing large obstacles, and hill descent control makes rolling down slopes a snap.

The cabin of the 2009 Land Rover Range Rover seats five passengers and treats them to four-zone air conditioning. Rear-seat passengers now can control their own air temperatures and vents; there is no third-row seat, but both rows have space to sprawl. The front buckets are thrones, upholstered perfectly with great outward visibility. There's plush carpet, wood trim, and leather everywhere--and Land Rover even allows you to choose wood harvested from sustainable forests.

As is the case with most pricey luxury vehicles, the 2009 Land Rover Range Rover hasn't been crash-tested, but it includes quite the roster of safety features, such as front side airbags and full-length curtain bags, plus the standard electronic stability control system with several integrated electronic off-road aids. A rearview camera system is also standard.

For 2009, the Range Rover Supercharged edition has available the new Autobiography Package, which includes a four-zone climate control system, climate-controlled glass, the rear-seat entertainment system, soft semi-aniline leather seats, and additional leather trim.


The Bottom Line:

Those in the financial position to own a 2009 Land Rover Range Rover will enjoy the ultimate in sport-utility luxury.

Original Warranty  help
Original Warranty
An original warranty is the warranty associated with a vehicle when it is brand new. In addition to the original warranty, select items, like tires, are typically covered by respective manufacturers. Also, an act of Federal law sometimes provides protection for certain components, like emissions equipment.
The original warranty is often broken down into multiple sections, including:
Basic Warranty:
Typically covers everything except for parts that wear out through normal use of the vehicle. Examples of non-covered items are brake pads, wiper blades and filters.
Drivetrain Warranty:
This warranty covers items the basic warranty does not protect. Wear and tear items such as hoses will not be covered, but key items like the engine, transmission, drive axles and driveshaft often will be.
Roadside Assistance:
The level of service differs greatly with this warranty, but many manufacturers offer a toll-free number that helps provide assistance in case you run out of gas, get a flat tire or lock your keys in the car.
Corrosion Warranty:
This warranty focuses on protecting you from holes caused by rust or corrosion in your vehicle's sheet metal.
Please check the owner's manual, visit a local dealership or look at the manufacturer's website to learn more about the specifics of the warranties that apply to a vehicle.

Basic 4 Years/50,000 Miles
Drivetrain 4 Years/50,000 Miles
Corrosion 6 Years/Unlimited Miles
Roadside Assistance 4 Years/50,000 Miles

Land Rover Certified Pre-Owned Warranty  help
Certified Pre-Owned Warranty
To be eligible for Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) status, vehicles generally must be recent models with relatively low mileage. CPO vehicles must also pass a detailed inspection, outlined by the manufacturer, which is measured by the number of inspected points.
Warranty coverage can vary from one manufacturer to the next. While most certified pre-owned programs transfer and extend the existing new car warranty terms, others offer a warranty that simply represents an additional year and mileage value. Always check with the manufacturer for the specific warranties they offer.
Common features and benefits of Certified Pre-Owned warranties include:
Age/Mileage Eligibility
To even be considered for certification, a car must be a recent model year and have limited mileage. The exact requirements are established by individual manufacturers.
Lease Term Certified
Some manufacturers offer certified pre-owned cars for lease. The length of the lease is often shorter than a new car lease, but it will cost you less.
Point Inspection
These inspections entail a comprehensive vehicle test to ensure that all parts are in excellent working order. The point inspection list is simply a numbered list of exactly what parts of the car are examined. While many inspections range from a 70- to 150-point checklist, most are very similar and are performed using strict guidelines. Ask your local dealer about specific details.
Return/Exchange Program
Some manufacturers offer a very limited return or exchange period. Find out if you will get the sales tax and licensing/registration fees back should you return or exchange the car.
Roadside Assistance
Most certified pre-owned programs offer free roadside service in case your car breaks down while still under warranty.
Special Financing
Reduced-rate loans are available through many certified pre-owned programs. Manufacturer-backed inspections and warranties help eliminate the risks involved with buying pre-owned, so buyers who qualify can take advantage of the great offers.
Transferable Warranty
When a new car warranty transfers with the certification of the car and remains eligible for the next owner, it is known as a transferable warranty. Once the original transferable warranty expires, an extended warranty takes effect.
Warranty Deductible
This is the amount for which you are responsible when repair work is performed under the warranty. Some manufacturers require a deductible while others don't, so always ask.

Terms include up to 7 year/ 100,000 miles limited warranty, 24-hour roadside assistance and a 165-point vehicle inspection, no warranty deductible, and trip interruption benefits.
Age/Mileage Eligibility Model Years 2012-2015 and less than 60,000 miles
Lease Term Certified Yes
Point Inspection 165-Point Inspection
Return/Exchange Program No
Roadside Assistance Yes
Special Financing Yes
Transferrable Warranty Yes
Warranty Deductible $0
