2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport: What's New

Source: The Car Connection

Land Rover's sporting sport-utility vehicle, the Range Rover Sport, joined the off-road brand lineup in 2006. Last year, Land Rover added an HST version which added an electric sunroof, an electronic active locking rear differential and privacy glass to the popular ute.

For 2008, the Sport returns with no major mechanical changes. New power-folding exterior mirrors have been added, along with an eight-way power passenger seat up front, and a power-adjusting steering wheel. Some console trim pieces get new finishes, and the HSE's leather door inserts have been restyled. And customers who choose the Supercharged edition get a choice of wood interior treatments, leather, and optional 20-inch wheels.

The Sport HSE continues to be powered by a 4.4-liter V-8 that generates 300 horsepower and 315 lb-ft of torque. The Supercharged 4.2-liter version, meanwhile, generates 390 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. This engine will take the vehicle to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds.

Both versions ride on a fully independent automatic load-leveling air suspension, with standard anti-lock disc brakes that include Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Brake Assist. Also included are stability control, Hill Descent Control and an Active Roll Mitigation feature that helps to stabilize the vehicle during severe handling maneuvers. The Terrain Response System that made its debut in the 2005 LR3 is likewise standard. This feature allows the driver to tailor the vehicle's electronic controls and traction aids according to varying road conditions.

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.

6-Year / 100,000-Mile Comprehensive Limited Warranty - calculated from the original in-service date and zero miles.
Age/Mileage Eligibility Less than 5-years old and less than 60,000 miles
Lease Term Certified Yes
Point Inspection 150-Point Inspection
Return/Exchange Program 3 day exchange
Roadside Assistance Yes
Special Financing Yes
Transferrable Warranty Yes
Warranty Deductible $0
