2013 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Stornoway Grey

And I wouldn’t mind betting that Land Rover will still not acknowledge that they have a reliability problem.........and will do nothing to fix the image problem that they are getting. 2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, preceeded by a 2.7SE RRS, a 3.6TDv8 RRS, several FFRR's and 2 Evoques.
Also in my garage is a 1996 TDi300 Defender 90 County HT made into a fake CSW.... my fun car to enjoy bashing and denting 20 years old and still giving loads of fun

They have had it too easy for too long, they need a horrible dip in sales (not that I've helped) that will force them to get their act together..

Petrol engined RRS’s don’t get mentioned in the report, it’s only the diesels that they comment on! 2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, preceeded by a 2.7SE RRS, a 3.6TDv8 RRS, several FFRR's and 2 Evoques.

Perhaps petrol are too new or not enough owners yet to include Confused

I let heart rule head because I was so impressed by first 6 LRs but in the end I had to give up - LR have lost the plot and relying on new sales instead of repeat business is only going to work so long imho but time will tell who's right Rolling Eyes

United Kingdom 2013 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Firenze Red

Have had 2 petrol's with little to no issues - I currently have electronic issues but nothing that cant wait until service.

On the other hand I owned volvos for years and we're terrible genuinely, my last one was rejected!! I would place them way up with land rover. My64 Supercharged Autobiography

I’m quite surprised when I read of people’s horror stories with their cars I believe I must be extremely lucky Shocked

I’ve owned RRS’ 2.7 diesel, 4.2 Supercharged, 5.0 Supercharged and now my SVR and to be totally honest on the earlier cars the suspension bushes required replacement at an alarming regularity but I haven’t had an engine or electrical problem which has taken me off the road at all with any of them. My SVR has had a problem with squeaky brakes, which seems to be inherent across the newer models, which was sorted and a fuel indication blip, cured by software but that’s about it.......
Censored, I may be tempting fate now Big Cry Big Cry Big Cry

Australia 2011 Range Rover Sport 4.4 V8 HSE Lux Alaska White

I have had my 2010 V8 RRS HSE Lux since July and as my daily driver, I have racked up almost 5000 miles. I think the front brakes are getting close to needing to be replaced, I will probably do rear as well. But that’s wear and tear from city driving and some fast blasts in the country + previous owner use. The car is just coming up 64k miles and has become the new family favourite. I am enjoying it way more than I had imagined and so far it hasn’t missed a beat.

United Kingdom 2006 Range Rover Sport TDV6 HSE Java Black

I'm considering flogging my 06 and getting a 3 yr old one after xmas. Reading stuff like this keeps putting me off. Shelling out £40k for a lemon doesn't seem too appealing if I'm honest. Big Cry

Although might it be the case that the first owner of a 3 yr old car has done his time having it towed to the dealer once a fortnight and it's all fixed now? But reading above, if the dealers are so bad, one like mine that never saw a dealer from new might be why mine seems to mostly work nowadays.

I read up on Bentleys but they seem even more unreliable.

I'd prefer a four wheel drive that worked, isnt naff or Japanese. Where to go? One of those Audi Q jobbies?

I never had these discussions when I was driving 126 Mercs or Volvo 940s. Back then, good stuff just seemed to work. I gave up on Mercs about a decade or so ago. Get a 2005-2009 RRS (FAH500210) sat nav/dash mat here - the one that wasn't there when you bought the car.

United Kingdom 2013 Range Rover Sport Supercharged Autobiography Fuji White

Hope so Paul,,at least it had full LR service history,,I’m just glad I took it to Hatfields for its last service instead of doing it myself as that could have been their way to get out of paying,,,,it’s time like this when I’m glad I buy from LR dealers with approved warranty.i wouldn’t be happy buying one from a none LR dealer & having a problem like this & getting a 10-14k bill.
