I love Range Rovers but would never own one that is not under a factory warranty.

thanks Mike. that's the thinking and they apparently offer 10 years coverage now, now sure how long you can extend on used ones a few years old though

Look nice and ride nice, but wouldn't own one that's not under warranty. Have had 2 myself (past company cars) and am leasing a Velar now that my wife and daughter drive.

thanks - will be getting closer to a decision soon. Definitely agree it would have to be under warranty

We have a 2020 Range Sport with the supercharged V8. Gets 18MPG mixed and 20+ highway MPG. Have had a broken window actuator switch and the plastic folding handle for the rear seat broke. Otherwise been perfect for the last 8k miles. If you get one with the black pack, be very careful washing the roof. Almost as bad as the piano black pillars on Ford vehicles.

My partners wife has a 2017 sport reg engine and other than oil changes nothing, think she has about 40k miles last time I checked. Poker buddy has top of the line big engine 2018 rr and he absoluty loves it, pretty fast for an suv.

My wife has one too. Runs fine, no issues, but maintenance is a real mofo. Brakes alone were $4k after 33k miles. So consider that type of stuff which isn't covered by warranty. I'm looking forward to the day I can dump it and get her something that isn't a maintenance money pit.

Holy smokes, you got robbed! Not even a DIY carbon ceramic job costs that much.

Yep. They kill you on maintenance if you do it by the book. Wife has a QX80 now and it was mostly won me over. In 25k miles nothing but oil changes and fuel so far.

My next door neighbor had a white evoque. Had it for about two months. Think it was a 2015 or 2016. Started running funny and stalling. He’s a diesel mechanic and super knowledgeable. Drained the gas cuz it was smelling super funny. Fixed the problem for a few weeks. Started doing it again. Same process repeated. Same result. A week later I see him in the driveway and he breaks the news to me. Complete fuel system has to be replaced for like $6k or something. He immediately sold it back to Range Rover. Lost a decent amount of money. Drove to the local Ford dealer and bought a 2020 Ford Escape platinum with the hybrid motor. He completely loves the car. Thing looks like a Jaguar f-pace.

My S class is the same way. I'm not driving it on the autobahn at 140mph so I let things on it go that are fine on every other car. For example, brake fluid change every 20K, they recommend you go ahead and proactitavilly replace the fuel pump at 60K.

So when you take a trip in something like this, and you have issues (which seem to be more often than not reading the posts), how is their dealer network as far as locations in every town?

If you're traveling between Miami and Palm Beach, there seems to be one about every 10 miles. If you're traveling from West Virginia to Kentucky, may want to stick with GM.

Seems like you can extend warranty to 10 years total from put in service date. It is amazing looking at these how quickly they depreciate

check out an Escalade, Yukon, Tahoe or similar...or any pickup truck right now. 2-3 years old and post lease they are legitimately down 15-20% off MSRP...not even close to the RR. Kind of crazy the disparity

Depreciation is your friend. Let the first guy take the big hit and come in as owner two or even three.
I’ve been driving S550s as the second or third owner for a long time now. Paying used Camry money for a luxury ride. Just need to be a smart buyer and have a good Indy mechanic to fall back on.

whats the points in buying a vehicle that may spent most of its life in the shop? even if the repairs are maybe covered?

i dont touch land rovers with a ten foot pole. all my friends that have had them have had issues.

if you want something dependable look at toyota and teh alike. if you want something flashy that at least try to find something that won't spend significant time in the shop.

Got a buddy that has owned a few out of warranty. He sends me pics of the suggested repairs every time he takes his in for service. Hilarious in a bad way and always $3k -$5k. He just traded his last on in on a 2021 Denali and he is loving life.
